"You can achieve all the material wealth you want in life. But without people you live to share it with, none of it has meaning."


👋 Hello everyone,


Here are a couple of posts you might have missed:


 

📚 Book Summary:

This week's book is "The Business of Gratitude" by Steven A. Littlefield.


The book could have a great impact if you are in the right business, such as high-value sales for the car industry, real estate, or mortgage loans, as the author is. The book is a quick read about the power of sending physical "Thank You" cards and includes templates for different occasions.

(I ended up sending eight physical "Thank you" cards to a few close friends and my favorite authors who have greatly impacted my life. (Ryan Holiday, Jocko Willink, to name a few.))


One of my favorite take away from the book is this:

"Science has proven that the simple act of being grateful increases your own personal well-being. When you appreciate yourself and others, you become a little kinder, walk a little taller, and find that good things happen to you. The more gratitude you give, the more abundance you receive from the universe in an exponential way."


✅ Actionable advice:

Also, from the book: "What is a gratitude mindset? At its heart, a gratitude mindset is being present enough in the moment to find one thing to be grateful for. Right now, for example, the odds are good that you can see. You can hear. You can breathe. You can smell. You probably didn't sleep in a hospital last night. You have food in the fridge and a roof over your head. The list goes on and on."

Lars: Start making your list.
