Energetic Gratefulness is one of the most powerful core values we can experience.

Reflecting on and answering these questions, will allow you to experience Energetic Gratefulness.

Day 11: Energetic Gratefulness

My long time Firewalking friend Brian Ludwig came for a visit.
During our conversation, he noticed that, I was having a bad day.
I was complaining about this and that.
He simply smiled and said,
“Let me ask you a question, a question that you like to ask the participants at your Firewalking Seminars.”
“What are you Grateful for in your Life?”
Instantly, my attitude changed. I began to share what I was grateful for in my life. I affectionally call Brian, the “Avalanche Man,”
because he literally survived a snow avalanche while working in a copper mine in Northern Canada.

This personal experience inspired me to interview many happy, healthy and wealthy people.
They all seem to have one common attribute, the sense of gratefulness about every aspect of their lives.
Whenever I had the opportunity to go for a walk with them, they all had a sense of gratitude for nature and people.
Allow me to ask you the same 5 Grateful Questions that I ask myself every morning when I wake up.

What are you Grateful for that makes you Happy?
What are you Grateful for in your Health?
What are you Grateful for in your Wealth?
What are you Grateful for in your Life?
What are you Grateful for right Now?

Share with us. What are you Grateful for?

What is it with so many businesses that still send out noreply@ emails

What are they really telling their customers?
That they can send you emails but they are not interested in your opinion or feedback?
Many Social Media companies also use the noreply@address.  How Social is that?

Do a search in your email box by typing noreply@ and look at all the companies that want you to
hear what they have to sell or promote to you but are not interested in what you have to say.

Here are some better options you can use:

New Year’s Resolution

New Year’s Resolution by Fred Shadian

A favorite saying of mine goes like this:
“The tragedy in life is not what we can’t do,
but what we don’t know we can do.”

What is one thing you have always wanted to do but you don’t because you fear you won’t succeed?
How will you ever know unless you go out there and test it out.

Every year I set a New Year’s Resolution to learn a new skill.
It could be learning how to play checkers at a mastery level, understanding HTML & WordPress, how to become a long distant runner, walking everyday, fly a kite, ride a bike, learn how to meditate, learn martial arts, how to play a musical instrument, eating healthier
and this year I want to learn how to play GOLF at a peak level.

We all have greatness within us and when we ignite that greatness, we awaken the fire within.
We are able to do and become greater than we ever thought we could.
The key is to remember that feeling, acknowledge it and utilize it for new skills you are about to learn.

So what is something you always wanted to learn or become?
Start right now by doing a quick Wikipedia search on the subject.

Whenever I decide to learn or master a new skill, I experience some challenging moments as I progress through the core fundamentals.
The JOY of learning slowly overpowers the frustration and procrastination of learning something new.
Gradually it becomes a daily habit and then it becomes a lifestyle.

p.s. I would love to hear, what is your New Year’s Resolutions.  Please make a comment.

The Boxing Match of the Year: Barack Obama vs Mitt Romney by Fred Shadian

Barack Obama vs Mitt Romney

The Boxing Match of the Year:
Barack Obama vs Mitt Romney
The Boxing Match of the Year: Barack Obama vs Mitt Romney by Fred Shadian

To all my USA Friends.
This whole Democrat vs Republican thing is getting way too silly.
All these political insulting comments on
Facebook and Twitter are a waste of wall space and time.
Since its been predetermined that Obama will win again this year.

Republicans for 8 years and now its the Democrats for 8 years.
it’s all just a big illusion to give you the impression that your vote counts.

As an ex-boxing handicapper & oddsmaker here is the patterns that i look for:

History repeats itself.
Bill Clinton 8 Years in office.
George W. Bush 8 Years in office.
Barack Obama 8 Years in office.

In the Red Corner: Ex-president Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter endorsed Barack Obama at the 2012 Democrat National Convention.
In the Blue Corner: No Republican Ex-president endorsed Mitt Romney at the 2012 Republican National Convention.
You can never win a World Championship without a great cornerman.

The rich may support Mitt Romney, but the Mega-Rich like Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, George Soros and Wall Street supports Barack Obama.
The odds are overwhelming for Barack Obama to win again for another 4 Years.

For the record, i will not be voting for either one of these chumps because i live in Canada 🙂

The Gateway in London with Fred Shadian

Thought of the day as I walk through Marble Hill Park in London, England. To be truly successful in what you want to create in your life, what I found is that the words we say internally and externally will create the lifestyle we desire in our daily lives. A good example of this is when I am coaching / mentoring an individual I notice they get positive for a day, a week or a month and then they stop taking action towards their goals, dreams and desires when ever they meet an obstacle or when the negative internal dialogue takes over. Internal/External communication is like working out, you can’t just do it once and expect massive results you need to do something everyday towards your common goal to create massive results.
