One Hand In Gratitude, The Other Reaching For Growth

Be grateful, have faith, and go get your OolaLife.

For years, I’d heard that mantra from Dave Braun and Troy Amdahl—the “OolaGuys”—in their popular books, webinars and more. The idea of being grateful in all things—no matter what—comes from the story of Dave’s nephew Jared, who constantly looked for things to be grateful for as he slowly battled and eventually succumbed to luekemia.

Are you grateful in all things?

I find that, when I’m grateful, even more good things show up in life. I’m even grateful for the mishaps I’ve lived through, since it gives me better appreciation and a more positive outlook on where my life is going next.

Being grateful in the moment is important, but so is looking forward to what’s next—another lesson from Oola. In fact, as the OolaGuys say:

Keep one hand on your heart in gratitude, while the other hand reaches toward growth.

So where do you need to reach out and grow? Where do you need be grateful?

When I coach clients through the 10-week Oola coaching experience, we look at the 7 major areas of life and create a plan for growing (and being grateful) in each of these areas. Can you grateful for what you have, while also growing in new ways?

Fitness: Grateful for good health, but exercising more?

Finance: Grateful for good pay, but lowering debt, too?

Family: Loving the kids, but improving your marriage?

Field: Grateful for your job, but seeking new skills, too?

Faith: Grateful for faith, but with a daily practice, too?

Friends: Grateful for BFFs, but seeking mentors, too?

Fun: Grateful for time off, but adding adventures, too?

If you’ve been following my posts, you know that I’m big into getting what you want in the 7 major areas of life. Now, as a Certified Oola Life Coach, I can help you bring about the lifestyle, relationships and financial security you need to be happy, balanced and growing.
