[Haven’t taken the IN AWE 21-Day Challenge? Join here.]
Welcome to Day 1 of the IN AWE 21-Day Challenge! Today, we spark inspiration, meaning and joy by cultivating GRATITUDE:
Market downturns. Disease spreading. Increasing anxiety. Loss of hope. These are some of the realities many of us are dealing with today. And so it is important to pause and remember, whatever we choose to focus on tends to grow.
We are all familiar with the idea that those who focus daily on what they’re grateful for (through journaling, reflection, prayer) have a deeper sense of meaning and joy in their life. Today, let’s take it a step further.
CHALLENGE: Identify your greatest struggle or adversity today. Then, list five things that you are grateful for because of that adversity.
INSPIRATION: Need more time to reflect? Read my essay The 5 Surprising Gifts of Struggle here.
ACTION: Share your list in the comments below or on social media, tagging me + using #inawe. Each day from now until publication (5/5), I’ll randomly pick one person who does to win a copy of IN AWE to gift to a neighbor, favorite barista or as a random act of kindness (because you’ve already preordered copies for yourself, friends + family, right? :).
My friend, today is your day! Live IN AWE.
Did you know? The 21-Day IN AWE Challenge is inspired by John’s forthcoming book IN AWE. Preorder your copy + follow all the fun behind the scenes at ReadInAwe.com.
