Episode 254: Best of Habits | Gratitude with John Israel

Have you taken any time to be grateful today?

When we think about forming power habits, we often think about doing something that will improve our productivity or health. We rarely consider the transformative power of mindset habits, and one of the most powerful habits is gratitude. That may seem like an easy or trivial thing, but in practice, embodying a state of gratitude every day is both surprisingly challenging and significant.

Our guest John Israel, founder of The Mr. Thank You Project and author of “The Mr. Thank You Project,” experienced an epiphany: if he wanted to make a huge, positive impact on the world, he had to start by doing just ONE thing to express his gratitude every day. This ONE habit, over time, has truly unleashed something extraordinary, and in this episode, we invite you to become a part of it.
