A Simple, Fun, And Profound Daily Investment

Our intention, with this essay, is clarifying.

Clarifying a notion that came to me earlier today, while in the shower.

Something to do with “investing” and, then, “gratitude.

A Daily Investment

Our vision of “investing” is vast.

Conceptually, that is. And, well, in an infinite wealth, number, and abundance — ad infinitum — of manners and ways.


You can find more about this in “A Secret Passion” and “A Single Idea Contains An Infinity.”

Our concern, though, is not with any of that.

No, our concern is with a simple, daily activity — or “investment,” as it were — that creates results.

Our intention, then, is to clarify what this investment is, as well as the benefits it creates.

Your Daily Gratitude Investment

Every single day, within any moment that is right, you can give yourself three minutes.

Just three minutes.

And, right within these three minutes, you can appreciate.

Or, be grateful; express your gratitude; say “Thank you.”

And so on and so forth, endlessly and infinitely; ad infinitum.

You can appreciate anything.

Anything, All things. Everything.

And so on and so forth, endlessly and infinitely; ad infinitum.

Or, you can select certain themes, focal points, ideas — ad infinitum — to appreciate or be grateful for; ad infinitum.

No matter what, though, all you need is to appreciate, for a period of three minutes.

Right before we clarify the benefits of this daily investment, here is one example: you wake up and appreciate your bed, the sunny day, the cereal you are eating; and so on and so forth.

A Wealth Of Benefits

If you conduct or employ or use — ad infinitum, we’ll say — this daily investment, you can, and will, enjoy a wealth of unique, lovely, and delightful benefits.

Some of the most notable, of these benefits, are as follows:

  • You will have an easier time bringing what you desire into being.
  • You will see beauty, love, and opportunity all around you.
  • You will enjoy deeper, more restful, sleep.
  • You will experience a greater sense of peace.
  • You will wake up with greater ease.
  • You will enjoy every day a little bit more.
  • You will give love with greater ease, while receiving more of it.

And so on and so forth.

The above are my experiences. But, of course, your experiences can be, and likely will be, a little different.

Just as an example, you may find that this daily investment does not lead to better sleep, because your sleep is already as good as it can possibly be.

Even though the above is true, within this example, you may find that you experience a greater sense of peace and that this peace allows you to bring your wishes into being with much greater ease.

Or, at least, something to that effect.

No matter what my hope is that you enjoy a wealth of benefits. And, my belief — my conviction — is that you will.


If you read this essay, thank you so much!

My hope is that you enjoyed this essay. And, even more than that, my hope is that you enjoy this daily investment.

Best wishes and have a fantastic day!
