Hi this is Diane Kennedy. Today is Day 19 of the 30-day Coundown to the release of my new book, The Maui Millionaires™ that I co-wrote the book with David Finkel. The book is scheduled to be released on November 3, 2006, and from now until then I’ll be checking in every day with a Wealth Tip excerpt from the book, written either by myself or by my co-author, David Finkel.
Wealth Tip 19: You are Already Incredibly Wealthy
With all this talk about money and wealth it’s important that you don’t lose sight of one unquestionable fact: you are already amazingly wealthy.
Look at all the blessings you have in your life. You have your family and friends; you have your health (even if it isn’t perfect); you have freedom; you have the native intelligence and attributes you were born with and have cultivated over your life time. And you have so much more.
It’s our belief that one of the most powerful ways to remind yourself about how wealthy you are is contained in one word: gratitude.
What are you grateful for in your life? Or what could you be grateful for in your life if you allowed yourself? Who are the people you love? Who has made a difference in your life? What experiences will you treasure forever?
Don’t let Madison Avenue convince you to wait to feel wealthy only after you’ve bought the fanciest car or biggest house. Begin today to cultivate the attitude of gratitude in your daily life.
