According to my friend  Mike you can. I received this email from Mike the founder of and would like to pass it along to you:

“I recently came across this powerful value statement that really resonated with me.

What is it?

* Aim for a 1% improvement every single day

That’s it!  I think all of us could agree that a 1% improvement is something we are capable of.

Well, the power of this is that if you do this every single day, then you will completely transform yourself and your life in less than 1 year.

In fact, you will be 3,700 times better by the end of a year.  This is also why Einstein used to say that “the power of compounding is one of the most powerful forces in the world.”

Now, please don’t take this example literally.  Why? Because a 3,700 % improvement is impossible!  If I could do that, perhaps I could fly.  🙂  The key idea that I am trying to communicate is this:

* Aim to be better today than you were yesterday

I think gratitude is one of these laws that helps you easily and effortlessly achieve that goal.  I think that
by being grateful, you are instantly 1% better off every single day than if you forget to express gratitude and the effect after one year will be just as massive.

So, if you have not yet taken a chance to be grateful today, do so now.

I like you and I am grateful to have the opportunity to serve you.”


What a fantastic way to live your life! It is just like the Boy Scout rule (which I always made my boys follow) always leave a place cleaner than you got it.  So always aim for a better day tomorrow than you had today.  (I’m writing this in the evening lol)

If you live your life in Gratitude I believe you are already living your life that way.
