Good afternoon  ,

Those of you who read this letter regularly will perhaps remember my comments last week on the topic of gratitude - for what you have, and for what you have yet to accomplish.

Here's the message I promised from Annette Bau, a  business coach I'm working with. I recently "met" her on LinkedIn. 

In a quick summary of her comments: 
She suggests that it's good to give thanks for all that's just the way you want it to be. 
Then she goes on to  recommend being grateful for those things you still want to improve.

Have you ever noticed that, when you've successfully completed a project, the satisfaction with the result is first?
Then, gradually, that elation morphs into "It's part of the landscape of my life". Still worth celebrating...but there's more! 
You're soon (I hope!) off to the next area that cries out for your attention. 

Annette offers the idea that those areas that can still be improved are worthy of your gratitude. 
Just as much as the things that are exactly the way you want them.

The challenges you recognize and take on are a lot of what keeps life vibrant and exciting. Be thankful for them...and look for more!

Enjoy Annette's brief message, and remember to practice gratitude every day:
  • For what you have, and
  • For the challenges that remain for you.

P.S. For other reading about gratitude,  here's something  I wrote a couple of years ago quoting my friend  Star Dargin.  At this link you can find her entire book on the subject .

How do You Connect with 
Your Best  Coaching Prospects?

How's your progress toward the business goals you've set? Of course, you have set them, right?

Is a shortage of prospects who need and can pay for your services holding you back?

When you join Smart Money Network's  Business Accelerator Program, here's what we do for you:

We help make your LinkedIn Profile Page attract the people you want to attract.

We send LinkedIn connection invitations  to about 100 of your best prospects every day. Our specially-designed software searches out these  few thousand  among LinkedIn's hundreds of millions of members.  Like hunting for "needles in a haystack" it's at least difficult, and certainly time-consuming, to find them manually.

We send your welcome message to the 15-30 percent of them who accept your invitation and connect. (My own experience is currently 27%).

We begin a "drip" campaign. In this campaign we give...give...give...and then ask. No pitches!

All of these messages come from you personally. And of course you can follow the communication threads and adjust your messages whenever you like.

About John

Throughout a career spanning over 45 years my management style has been one of building teams to bring several competent people together to focus on a common objective. I noted early in my career that, in most organizations, there is an enormous amount of time, energy, and effort wasted by people working at cross purposes.

As I transition to life in the Argentine outback, my focus shifts from coaching to helping other business coaches and advisers get their message out to their prospective clients. With my first-hand knowledge of the benefits of effective business coaching, I am uniquely qualified to help business advisers of all stripes convey their message.
