Each week, I’m challenging myself to complete a Dare of the Week. A weekly goal designed to live more intentionally and be a better man. And I’m inviting you to join me.

How often do you stop and appreciate what you have in life?

It’s easy to see what we don’t have, isn’t it? We all could use more of this and less of that. But what if we focused more on what we’ve been given than what we wish we had?

Showing your gratitude prevents taking people for granted, reminds you of how much you’re blessed, and just plain makes you a happier person.

I know that’s what I want for my life. How about you?

This week’s dare is to focus on what we have been given and be thankful for it.

1. As an exercise, list at least 20 things in your life you’re grateful for.

2. Once you’ve written your list, write down whoever’s responsible for it.

3. Go to those responsible and show your appreciation.

This is a simple dare, I know. But we might just be surprised how far a simple thank you can go.

Will you accept this week’s challenge?
