Be grateful with what you have and you'll be granted more.

Welcome to Article 4 of the 5 part series: Get Started toward Success

Welcome back. And really, you are reading part 4 and I must tell you that if you’ve come this far, (and completed the assignments) you must have a very good feeling of accomplishment but even more, you are probably already experiencing positive results and events in your life.

If this is your first time reading this series, I strongly suggest that you go back to the previous article ( and keep going back until you are at the first article and read all from the beginning and do the assignments!

Your last assignment was to list your greatest accomplishments, and contact those who helped make them possible. How many of you called your mom and dad, or a friend you’ve not chatted with for a long while? Good.

Those accomplishments and those relationships added to working on those traits that we first discovered will move you forward to great things. Your traits indicate what you are “good at”, and your accomplishments are evidence that you’ve succeeded in areas where you are “good”. Use what you’ve learned to form new goals. To succeed and attain greater success we must be grateful for what we have now. One will not be given something more in any of the Major 8 ™ areas if he or she is not grateful for and respecting what he or she now has. Here’s today’s assignment.

Set your timer for 10 minutes. Now I want you to list all of your greatest blessings. After your 10 minutes has ended, determine and circle your top 10. Write these top 10 on a 3x5 card and view it often. You will “get more” of what you focus on, so focus on these 10 blessings and watch happens in your life!

Don’t forget to share your comments below (even if you don’t see one yet, step forward, be the first!).

Make it a great day!
Terrific. Energizing. Results!

EXTRA CREDIT: This really should be part of the assignment but I’m thinking that you are doing the extra credits that I present because true winners do more than asked. Here goes.

Look at your long list of blessings and then choose 10 blessings that you think you’ll still be grateful for in 10 years; they may or may not be the same as you’ve chosen today. Take some “real time” to contemplate on your choices.

Our last part of this series will have you doing something that requires your full imagination so get ready!
