Why I Am Not Thankful

Yep, you read that one right: Me… NOT Thankful…

If you make any kind of living from what ever type of business you have, you probably felt this way and maybe even do today.

I describe business as being on a roller coaster ride.

But every ride comes to an end, you get off and you probably even sway on your feet a bit, you may feel a bit light headed.

This is where the problem begins.

I don’t feel right about myself unless I have some new deal or product I am cooking up. Getting on the ride is half the fun.

Pop psychologists will tell you this is low self esteem talking, but that is just plain crap.

It’s part of being a serial entrepreneur.

It’s like riding a roller coaster, and no matter what, sooner or later every Carnival ride comes to an end.

I just got done re-building and re-launching my G+ members site.

Now that that’s over I have been in kind of a funk the last few days.

How much money I make is irrelevant to me, it is the ride up and down the process that I enjoy.

This can be very detrimental to your relationships, your personal happiness, and just being someone your friends want to be around.

Complacency comes to mind here, each hill on the ride has to be higher, steeper, the view from the top of the hill broader, and longer lived.

Do you ever look behind you while you are on one of these rides?

No, you look ahead anticipating the ride up the next hill.

You don’t look back and say “Man, that was a great hill…”

When you get off the ride, you don’t stand there and thank the roller coaster gods for providing that scream-ride that nearly made you puke on the poor people behind you.

You race to the next ride. Read that RUN…

We have to have sit in the first car on the roller coaster.

Every Time.

So if you live in the US and are about to enjoy or not enjoy Thanksgiving tomorrow, and you are having problems feeling you are thankful…

Here is how Margie helped me get in touch with what makes me happy.

You can find this on Netflix right now, you can watch it online, yeah, it will sound like a load of fluffy bunny BS at first, but I guarantee you…

If you take the time to watch this you WILL find one small piece that can help you be happier with your own life and thankful to be you.

It will also make you much nicer to be around, since us entrepreneurs can be somewhat self centered at times.

If you are one of my members site students, be sure to get your 15 minute consult with me as yes, I will be working Friday.

I am taking a few days away from the Carnival.

Being thankful for my new garage and Margie that helped me go play in it. (pic below)

Keep your arms and legs inside the ride at all times,

Chris

    Thanks Chris!

    This is my favorite part of this post:

    “When you get off the ride, you don’t stand there and thank the roller coaster gods for providing that scream-ride that nearly made you puke on the poor people behind you.”

    It’s amazing how showing gratitude for everything in your life actually leads to more abundance.
