What Are You Grateful For This Year?

thanksgivingAlthough I love writing about info-products and writing, I also love to write about what’s going on currently during the time of year. At this time of year, I especially love to write about gratitude because I know and understand the power of the attitude of gratitude.

I use this daily because it’s the antidote for complaints and excuses. If I’m complaining that I don’t have enough work, I turn that around to say I’m grateful for the work I do have. If I’m complaining that I don’t want to go for a walk because the weather is cool and cloudy, I just remember to be grateful that it never gets much below 50 degrees in Southern California. If I make an excuse that I don’t have time to exercise, I remind myself to be grateful that I work for myself and my time is my own.

If you’re complaining about the economy, be grateful you have a job. If you’ve lost your job, be grateful you have your health. If your health is suffering, be grateful for your supportive family. There’s ALWAYS someone or something you can find in your life to be grateful for.

Do you see how this works? Gratitude can turn the negative into a positive. And from all my years of reading and study, I’ve learned that a positive grateful attitude is more likely to receive more good things in life than a complaining and blaming one!

You can say your gratitudes every morning when you arise or just before going to bed. You can write them in a gratitude journal and read them every day. Or you can share them with a good friend over the phone or email.

So what do you have to be grateful about? How about your great family members who you don’t often take the time to tell them how much you appreciate them? Or your special friends, colleagues, or employees? What about being grateful for your car, your cat or dog, your house, and your healthy body? Sure you may be 20 lbs overweight, but everything is working.

Gratitude forces you to turn away from what you don’t really want to spend time focusing on and to realize that you really don’t have it all that bad. If you can spare a few minutes, I’d love for you to leave a comment and let everyone know what you’re grateful for this year.

HAVE A HAPPY AND HEALTHY THANKSGIVING HOLIDAY!

Creating a Tips Booklet as Your First Info-Product

If you’ve never heard of a tips booklet, you’re missing out on one of the coolest ways to impart information quickly and simply. Any product that shares information, like a book, ebook, ecourse, or CD is an info-product. A tips booklet is generally a 16-page 4” X 9” booklet that has a series of tips listed by number or bullet point for quick reading. Typically, they’re called 101 Ways.. or 77 Tips…, etc. Topics range from organizing and dating to pet care and stress reduction. Just about anything you can write an ebook or book on you can digest into a tips booklet. You can create the booklet in a paper format and mail it to buyers, or you can sell it as a digital file like an e-book. In this format we call it an e-booklet.

On Wednesday, November 18, at 6 pm PT, I’ll be interviewing Lynette Smith of www.GoodWaysToWrite.com on her process of creating her first series of tips booklets. All her booklets will be on the topic of good ways to write personal and professional communications. Her first series of 4 booklets are marriage-themed with titles like “Good Ways to Write a Treasured Letter to Your Groom When You Marry.” There’s also one to the bride, to your parents, and from the parents to the child getting married.

What’s so exciting about tips booklets as an info-product is that you won’t just sell it to consumers one booklet at a time. These info-products are perfect as promotional items or advertising specialties. Just like businesses use pens, calendars, or mugs as give-aways to favorite customers or for promotional purposes, these booklets can be sold in bulk to businesses that need a promotional item. Lynette will discuss this as well as how to create a tips booklet during my interview.
