You might not even realize it, but this is a huge question.

This weekend I attended a 3 day conference and we were asked, with a show of hands, how many people actually woke up in the morning thinking 'I LOVE MY LIFE'! Out of hundreds, about 6 people raised their hand. How sad is that?

And it got me thinking. For any of you who know me, I am a really positive thinker and believer. But do I do that? And I had to admit – not often enough !!

And when I think about it even more, I realized that the difference is just one VERY SMALL Letter. The letter 'I' becomes the letter 'O. In other words, the only difference between 'loving' my life and 'living' my life is one small letter! WOW!

How many of you are putting off 'loving' your life? Come on, be honest!

Maybe you suffer from the 'if only' syndrome!

I would be happy if only I had more money, if only I was thinner, healthier, have more hair, be smarter, if only my kids were doing better, be in a good relationship — I could go on and on. But you know what I mean.

I'm a very big believer that everything is 'energy'. The energy we put out is what we get back — just like a magnet. What are we waiting for? Are we waiting for life to be perfect? If so, we could be waiting a very long time and meanwhile, we have missed out on 'life'! Please do not do that.

If we just 'live' our life we ​​will get back a life we ​​just 'live'. Look what you might be missing out on?

I want you to have a life you LOVE, in spite of the reality. When you change your mindset, everything changes!

So, I am prepared to walk my talk – I am going to wake up every morning and 'declare', yes 'declare' that I love my life. Will you join me?

Is my life perfect? Absolutely not – but it's getting pretty close, especially when I think of what others are going through right now, and those who never even made it to 63. (taking a trip to India definitely opened my eyes to a different side of life!)

I'm asking you to join me in this little experiment – actually I'm not just asking you — I'm pleading, even begging that you take this on — maybe for just a week. And that is, every morning, when your feet hit the floor, declare 'I love and appreciate my life'. If you have kids, get them to do it too. This is not for the rest of your life (unless you want it to be) It's just for a week and fake it if necessary. See what happens and let me know. I'm going to do it too!

I'd love your thoughts and comments on this article. Please email me at and let me know what you think. Let's measure our results.
