The One Thing To Do For a Great Day!

With everything going on in the world today, it’s easy to feel down. We recently experienced two years of a global pandemic. Now inflation is skyrocketing. There is a horrific war raging in Ukraine.  Even though there are many things that are out of your control, there is one thing that you can control, and that’s your mindset.

First, we live in the best country on the planet. Second, we have incredible freedoms, and we value them. We value everything that is sacred to us.

To keep perspective, I have one thing that I do every morning when I get up – no matter where I am, whether I am traveling, on vacation or at home – I write out a gratitude list. Every morning. I begin every morning with the exact same sentence.  That sentence is, “It’s already a great day because it is.”

Take a moment and think through that sentence. It’s already a great day because it is. Do you see how I am framing the day?  It is easy to wake up and think of all the things you do not want to do, or that you would rather go back to sleep. I encourage you to write this down every morning, “It’s already a great day because it is” instead of letting other thoughts flood your mind.

I want to get in that mindset of gratitude from the moment I wake up and open my eyes.  That is how I start my day.  After that sentence I list out all the things that I am thankful for.

Certain things make my list every day. I am grateful for transportation, my home, for food in my stomach, for family, for love, for people that love me and for people that I love.  I am grateful that I have money in the bank, and I can pay my bills. I am grateful for all those things and so much more.

I encourage you to get into this daily practice as well. It does not have to be a long or elaborate list.  But it is not enough to just think through these things. You need to put pen to paper and list them out every single morning. It is a habit for me, and it puts me in the frame of mind to have a great day.

We have so much to be grateful for, and when we remember “that” it changes the way we interact with family, friends, and even clients. You will be surprised by how having an attitude of gratitude will often bring even more into your life to be thankful for. It is one small thing you can do every day that will make a big difference in your life.
