My 2011 thankful list.

Syndicated from: Networking for Results Blog

From the desk of Michael J. Hughes, North America’s Networking Guru. The major thrust at this time of year seems to be forging ahead and creating new goals. Seems to me we’re missing a huge opportunity to express gratitude for the people and things that have impacted our lives and our success. Every year at this time, I take the time to reflect on, and record, what I have to be thankful for. Here’s this year’s list: My health. This area remains my personal priority, as it will allow me to continue to make the contributions I’m now capable of. I’m thankful I’ve accepted that discipline is the price of success in this crucial life category. I can’t stop the advance of my years, but I plan on going out kicking and screaming, fully used up. My life partner. She continues to amaze and inspire me. The highlight of 2011 was completing a triathlon with my wife of 38 years.  Thank you Cheryl, this was one of my most satisfying life accomplishments, because we did it together. I’m looking forward to our next adventure. My children. Jennifer (and Aaron), Jeff, and Jason (and Maria) continue to be a source of pride, on their way to far surpassing my accomplishments. Watching, and contributing to, their success is a great joy. Thank you for being who you are. My “networking” passion. I am truly thankful to have found a passion to embrace. It has fueled my enthusiasm, funneled my energy and forced me expand my horizons. Through and because of it, I continue to grow. It has both enriched me and enhanced my life. My legacy. I add this to my list this year not to be presumptuous or vain. I’m simply becoming more conscious that there are fewer years ahead than behind me.  I’m thankful I’ve had the commitment and courage to create a record of my learnings. What’s your thankful list? I’d love to see it, not to make it public, simply to give you the opportunity to go through this powerful exercise. Simply email it to me at wishing you peace, prosperity and even more success in the coming year, Michael
