Do you want to have a GREAT Life?

While growing up we are always told by our parents, teachers, coaches, and other loved ones that we are supposed to grow up to “Do great things”. Or , we hear people talking about how their child is “going somewhere.”

So it’s no wonder that most of us at one point in our lives have asked ourselves just where they expected us to go. Or, what exactly are these great things we are supposed to be doing?

There was so much hype, but little direction beyond that and the reason is simple; the adults in our lives had HUGE expectations but they themselves never figured out where they were supposed to be going!

And how do you lead the way when you don’t have the map or any idea of where the final destination is?!!


So Lee, how does this help me?!


I’m so glad you asked!

I may not have cracked the code, but I have found a recipe, that for me, has helped build that map for myself that no one else was able to give me.

Depending on who you ask, each person in your life might have a slightly different idea of the best method for getting to a GREAT Life.

Gandhi Happiness Harmony



In the words of India’s most influential activist, Mahatma Gandhi

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony.”




So, try out this 21 Ingredient Recipe for a GREAT Life for yourself and see if you too can find happiness by achieving balance in what you say, think, and do.


  1. Take a 10-30 minute walk every day. And while you walk, smile. It is the ultimate anti-depressant!
  2. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day. Talk to YOUR CREATOR about what is going on in your life.
  3. When you wake up in the morning complete the following statement, ‘My purpose is to__________ today. I am thankful for______________’.
  4. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants, and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.
  5. Try to make at least three people smile each day.
  6. Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip, energy vampires, issues of the past, negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.
  7. Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.
  8. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
  9. Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does!
  10. You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree and move on.
  11. Make peace with your past so it won’t spoil your present.
  12. Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about, or the path they have taken to get here.
  13. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
  14. Frame every so-called disaster with these words: ‘In five years, will this matter? ‘
  15. Forgive everyone for everything; it’s not for them, it’s for you.
  16. What other people think of you is none of your business.
  17. GOD heals everything – but you have to ask Him.
  18. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
  19. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
  20. Each night before you go to bed complete the following statements: ‘I am thankful for__________. Today I accomplished_________.’
  21. Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed. When you are feeling down, start listing your many blessings.
