Show Gratitude Every Day Advice From Jeff Walker

Last Update: September 14, 2012
Interesting I was reading a piece on Jeff Walker this week in the Forbes magazine. His advice for building a business was sound but there were a couple of things that you wouldn't expect him to talk about but which is really loved.
  • Show gratitude every day - before you go to sleep each night think about 3 things that you were grateful for that day. Three things that you accomplished. It is really easy to gloss over things or get disheartened when things don't go to plan but everyday there should be a least a couple of things to be grateful for.
  • Baby steps - Rome wasn't built in a day so if you are looking for 'get rich quick' scheme you might be a little disappointed. Building a business taking baby steps so celebrate every one of them. Celebrate every accomplishment no matter how small, celebrate it because it is progress. Always think about what you are after long term and go after that.
  • Embrace your uniqueness - every single one of us has a special gift to give to the world and ourselves. What is your gift? Jeff Walker spends three days every single week embracing his uniqueness and his gifts. Nothing deters him from this no phone, sms, skype nothing. He gives himself 100% to commit to this task.
Wonderful words of advice from a guy that started with nothing to build an amazing business in IM. He has a wealth of advice but I liked these three because it wasn't about the business it was about simple things that you can embrace to help all areas of your life.

All three points are important to remember. Too many people forget to embrace their uniqueness. I think that's where a person's strength lies. Whatever makes you different is often what you have to give to others. Thanks Gai. I enjoyed reading this.

I agree and think that what makes us unique is why we are here. Our uniqueness is our gift to the world but all too often people don't find their gift or don't embrace it! And giving is the key to receiving a great lesson as well. Thanks for reading Gai
