Are you:

  

* An entrepreneur in a flat business

* Chilled from divorce

* Idle in your career

* Burdened by a job loss

* Void of life purpose

* Missing loving relationships

* Afraid that "empty nest" means "empty future"

* In eed of executive presence

* Unable to "just move on"


Clients, across the US, are working hard but not smart because there is a lack of clarity, vision, goals, optimized work environment, accountability or good work/life balance in place to produce exceptional results. So fear, bureaucracy, personal agendas and cynicism have grabbed hold when what they want is rekindled passion to create the best product or service in their industry, be the provider of choice and be fulfilled by a lifestyle friendly business.

This week as we celebrate Thanksgiving I am grateful to be a part of your life. You are special.  I am grateful that you entrust me to provide meaningful information that I hope serves as a guide to your success and fulfillment. You make a meaningful difference in the lives of the people around you.  My wish is that you continue to be an effective leader, parent, colleague, partner, mothers, father, child, grandparent, grandchild, relative and friend.

Time is not measured by the years that you live,

But by the deeds that you do and the joy that you give.

And each day as it comes brings a chance to each one,

To love to the fullest, leaving nothing undone,

That would brighten the life or lighten the load,

Of some weary traveler lost on life's road.

So what does it matter how long we may live,

If as long as we live we unselfishly give.

-Helen Steiner Rice

 

Below is a list of ways that you may wish to share your gratitude with others.

10 Ways to Give Thanks:

1. Write a gratitude letter to a mentor, family member, or someone important whom you have not appropriately thanked.

2. Start a Gratitude Journal with a list of things for which you are thankful.

3. Keep a Gratitude Box where you collect cards, letters and other keepsakes you collect throughout the year from people you appreciate.

4. Create a Family Journal that is brought out at every Thanksgiving whereby each family member writes what they are thankful for. (We do this in my family.)

5. Put every family member's name in a hat at the Thanksgiving table. Each person pulls a name and gives a specific reason why they are thankful for that person. (We do this too.)

5. Do something special for a homeless shelter, battered women's shelter, convalescent home or other charity and include a special note as to why you care about them.

6. Gather toys, clothes, and home furnishings to take to the Goodwill, Salvation Army, or thrift store.

7. Drop a handwritten note of thanks to your coworkers.

8. Take the time to chat with a veteran about his or her experience. 

9. Cook a meal or deliver baked goods to your local fire department or police department for Thanksgiving.

Again, I am thankful for the trust you place in me to deliver information that makes a difference in your personal life, career and business.  Blessed wishes for a happy, healthy and abundant Thanksgiving.

Warm regards,

Mary Lee
