One Day Isn’t Enough to Express Your Gratitude
Frank Sonnenberg Online
by Frank Sonnenberg

Just think how much parents give up for their children and what soldiers sacrifice for their country. A lot, right? So why do we pause only one day each year to express our appreciation? After all, do you think that saying thank you one day a year — Mother’s Day or Veterans Day —is sufficient given the magnitude of their contribution and sacrifice? Do you treat holidays like these as a momentous occasion or just another date on the calendar? Do you mull over the best way to say thank you or treat it as a check-off item? Most important, do you express your appreciation throughout the year or f ..read more

Some people think that having wealth, power, or status gives them the right to be rude. Other folks don’t know how to behave or simply don’t care how they treat others. Shame on them!

Here are 10 ways people degrade themselves: Give in to temptation. Some folks stretch the truth, let their eyes wander, or get seduced by money.

Do you remember learning how to ride a bicycle? You probably first rode a tricycle and thought you were the king of the world. Then came the “big kid bike” with training wheels. WOW. But when those training wheels came off, it all came down to you. Yikes. If you were anything like me, you had more scrapes and bumps than you could imagine. But that was a small price to pay for independence. I remember thinking that my bike was fun, and I could now go anywhere I wanted. Do you rely on others for support or count on yourself?

It doesn’t matter whether you’re rich or poor, powerful or weak, young or old — everyone has the same amount of time each day. What you do with that time is your choice and your choice alone. You can invest it or fritter it away. You can focus on priorities or waste it on meaningless tasks. The key is that every time you do something, you’ve chosen to forgo something else.

How much time do you spend on the phone, hanging out on social media, or watchin ..read more

Are you feeling blue? One of the culprits of being unhappy is the amount of negativity that you have in your life. The fact is, worrying, judging, fearing, complaining, envying, blaming, hating, and seeking revenge are destructive, debilitating, and emotionally draining.
