Are you blessed with good health, a steady income, food on your table, and a comfy bed to sleep in at night? Are your kids going to school having eaten breakfast, with shoes on their feet, warm clothes in the winter, or the use of an umbrella and rubbers when it rains? Are their teeth and hair clean? Do they feel safe and secure? Is there a support system in place that you both can count on? Yes? No? Or maybe?! Isn’t it amazing what we all take for granted!
Stop a moment and feel grateful for everything in your life. Hug your kids today and ask them what they are appreciative of. Savor this. It is a wonderful way to start each day.
Now imagine that you and your family are homeless and that your survival instincts are in overdrive. Internally, hope plummets and self-esteem is rock bottom. How do you climb out of this dire situation? How do you turn your life around? How do you instill hope in the hearts of your children?
Ask yourself this question, “What is the one thing that successful people seem to consistently do?” The answer is, “They have a coach to help them reach their goals!” Do you know of anyone who is a lifestyle or business coach? Are you a coach? If you are a coach or know someone who is then take a look at this non-profit organization. See if it is a good fit for you.
