Giving thanks is healthy and it never gets old

Chef Timothy_Moore-160It's that time of the year again when we look forward to spending time with family and friends, reflecting on the past year and looking forward to the new one. Some may feel that the year has been a total failure and hope and pray that the new year holds more for them. Others will simply feel blessed and fortunate that they have been allowed to see another year.

Everyone should realize that there is always something or someone to be thankful for, no matter how bad life gets them down at times. At Thanksgiving in particular, we should not complain about what we don't have or should have; just be thankful for what we do have, no matter how much or how little.

Don't be concerned about what you didn't accomplish in the past year; be thankful for what you did accomplish and look forward to what you will accomplish in the coming year.

‘If You Can See It, You Can Be It’

Chef 600Jeff Henderson turned his life around behind bars while serving time for drug dealing. In the penitentiary, he developed a passion for cooking which, upon being paroled, he parlayed into a career as a celebrated chef and host of his own TV series on the Food Network.

Now, he's published a collection of recipes not of his best dishes but of the secrets of his success. The dozen key ingredients include: self-discipline, delayed gratification, education, intuition, risk, persuasion, adaptation, collaboration, humility, selflessness, visionary leadership and getting the competitive edge.

Besides clarifying each of those concepts, the author augments his ideas with pearls of wisdom from fellow luminaries like Oprah Winfrey, who reveals, "The big secret in life is that there is no big secret. Whatever your goal, you can get there if you're willing to work."
