WELCOME


Dear Valued Subscriber,

Brian Tracy and I have been thrilled to be sharing with you messages found in our new book, "What You Seek is Seeking You". We hope you have been finding the topics both inspiring and helpful. 

In September, we explored how we can use our work environment to express the best of us as well as help to bring out the best in others. This October, let's find out how well we receive from others and what our beliefs are about the value of receiving. 

Enjoy!

The air we breathe, the warmth of the sun, love of family and friends, the kindness of strangers, the generosity of farmers who grow our food and the list goes on. If we start keeping count, we will realize that we can never pay it all back. Hence, being only a giver is an illusion you keep; and this isn't a sign of humility or independence, but rather denial.

The cycle of giving and receiving is inviolable. We cannot give without receiving and vice versa. However, by denying the gift of receiving, you might be missing much more than just a feeling of gratitude. Because our inability to...
