“Gratitude is the heathiest of all human emotions. The more you express gratitude for what you have, the more likely you will have even more to express gratitude for.” Zig Ziglar 

Gratitude is connected to better health, more optimism and increased resilience. This week, you could start using a scientifically proven tool to help you feel more grateful. Three tools we discussed that you could use are starting a gratitude journal, using gratitude language, or taking a gratitude walk. On Thanksgiving, you could share your answers to one or two or two of the gratitude-focused questions such as 1) What can I be thankful for? 2) What am I happy about right now? and 3) What is going right in my life. A grateful perspective is always available. 

 

This Week’s Power Phrase: “I choose to intentionally practice gratitude daily. I focus on what I am grateful for to stay fueled and excited for my life.”

 Super Bowl champion Matt Birk is a 15-year veteran of the National Football League. Since retiring from football in 2013, Matt has held a number of roles inside the NFL League Office. A native of St. Paul, Minnesota, Matt was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in 1998 and was a key off-season acquisition of the Baltimore Ravens in 2009. A six-time NFL Pro Bowl Selection and two-time All Pro, Matt proved to be an undisputed leader on the field and was named the sixth smartest athlete by Sporting News.

 

More importantly, he has established a legacy of community service that will last far beyond his years of football.  A graduate of Harvard University with a degree in economics, Matt is the founder and CEO of Matt Birk and Company, LLC. He was the recipient of the 2011 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year award for his excellence on and off the field, including his commitment to emphasizing the importance of education through his H.I.K.E. Foundation.

 

He speaks to organizations across the country about the value of true inspiration, lasting leadership principles, the dynamics of teamwork, and fulfilling potential. Clients such as 3M, Coca Cola, Northwestern Mutual Life, and Walmart have benefited from the programs Matt has presented to their teams.  Matt is the author of All Pro Wisdom: The Seven Choices that Lead to Greatness, and resides in Mendota Heights, Minnesota. Matt and his wife, Adrianna, are the proud parents of eight children.

In this episode, Matt and Cindra talk about:

  • How he has mastered a focus on the process over outcome
  • Why “living radcially in the present” is his life’s motto
  • How went from Harvard to become a 6-time Pro-Bowler
  • Why failure it not the same thing as losing
  • How to make specific goals focused on the process
  • And, why “appropriate fear” is helpful

Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”—Oprah Winfrey 

Practicing gratitude has a lasting impact when done regularly. One study suggested just 2 weeks of a gratitude practice can have a lasting impact for 6 months. Gratitude is also connected to better health as well as more optimism and resilience. You can start a daily gratitude practice at the beginning of your day or end of your day by writing down 3 things you are grateful for each day. You can also shift your focus at any time to what is good and what you are gratitude for in any situation. Choose to take the perspective of a resilient, optimistic person and draw the good from a difficulty. 

 

This Week’s Power Phrase: I choose to intentionally practice gratitude daily. I focus on what I am grateful for to stay fueled and excited for my life.”

“If you gave your inner genius as much credit as your inner critic, you would be light years ahead of where you are now.” Alan Cohen 

Your inner critic is your disempowering inner voice that can sounds scared, angry, or judgmental. Remember your inner critic tends to lie to you. You want to name your inner critic to tame it. We all have an inner critic inside of us, and a key is to notice your inner critic. We want to respond to our inner critic with compassion and grace, and choose a more empowering and truthful statement to tell ourselves instead. 

 

This Week’s Power Phrase: “I name my inner critic to tame it. I talk to myself powerful instead of listening to my inner critic.”

Confidence is the trust in yourself and your abilities, and is the core of reaching your potential. To build your confidence, it is important you are on your own side, not on your own case. On your case means you are overly critical, negative and never satisfied. On your side, means you are rationale, realistic, and encourage yourself. To be on your own side more, focus on learning over beating yourself up. 

 

Quote of the Week: “It is confidence in our bodies, minds and spirits that allows us to keep looking for new adventures.” Oprah 

 

This Week’s Power Phrase:  “I am on my own side and keep learning and growing.”
