I Am Lucky

The Coach’s Chronicles are the trials, tribulations, and triumphs that we all experience each day – we just need to take the time and look for them, experience, and most importantly – learn from them. I share an important ‘coaching moment’ with you each week to bring about some light of inspiring experiences that I have had the opportunity to live-out.

The Coaches Chronicles: I am Lucky

GratitudeAnd so are you. Luck isn’t just for those of us that are Irish – we are all fortunate just for the air we breathe, the food we eat, or the roofs over our heads. Unfortunately many of us take these and other things in our lives for granted.

One thing in life that is not expressed enough is gratitude – being grateful for the things we possess; but more importantly, the people we have in our lives.

Gratitude is a virtue you have or don’t have. It’s a virtue that gets passed over too many times that we don’t realize how much impact having gratitude really has on our lives. We could all complain … but why, when we are all blessed in some way. As it relates to people in your life; expressing gratitude to another is one of the most important gifts you can give to another. Just to thank them to be in your life – the way they have influenced it, changed it, and made it better – is to show gratitude.

When it gets right down to it, people who are happy do not have gratitude because they are happy. They are happy because they possess gratitude. In other words, they LOOK for the good things that have happened to them.

Start now – eyes wide open – looking for all the good things that surround you …
