Last year, Cameron (my grandson and very special assistant) had sent you his list of what he was thankful for.

This year it's your turn! Focus on all the wonderful things in your life, many of which you may take for granted. Do the list. Think about it.

What I am Thankful for

Thanksgiving to be truly Thanksgiving is first thanks and then giving.

So allow me to thank you, my subscribers, and those subscribers yet to be, for fueling my commitment each day to provide the inspiration in my newsletter and seminars to live the life YOU desire.

I look forward to all we have planned for 2012.

From our family to yours — Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
