Small business owners often get so caught up in their quest for growth, more revenue, and more profit; that sometimes they forget that all the success and money in the world is useless if they have nobody to share it with. If you lose the love of your spouse, children, and family along the way, you may get rich on the outside but you will be dirt poor on the inside. Thanksgiving is nearing and it is great that we get together with those we love and make extra efforts to be thankful.
However, we should not wait for one day each year to be thankful for our blessings. And yes, we all have blessing even in the most dire of circumstances. Sometimes we struggle to see them because we are so consumed with everything we don’t have or wish we had. It is a shame that we cast aside priceless gems that others would give anything to have. We chase and chase and chase…never taking the time to appreciate all that we have already been given.
Here are some terrific quotes to get you thinking. I will be on vacation for the next nine days, so my consecutive streak will come to an end. We will see you on the other side. Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!
