I Am Thankful For So Much

On this day of Thanksgiving, I have plenty to be thankful for.

Heck, just looking at this single week I have more to be thankful for than most and I know I'm blessed to be able to say that.

  • Hot off the presses I received one of the first copies of my new book Amazing Things Will Happen. It is impossible to explain the emotional rush this is to anyone who isn't an author. But, if you are a parent it is very similar to the feeling of becoming a parent.
  • I've launched a new venture called The Cleon Foundation with the goal of making the world a better place. Nothing like setting a lofty goal huh?
  • Tomorrow morning before the sun rises, I'll be on a plane to England to speak at TEDxLaceMarket on Saturday afternoon. It pains me to leave my family, but I couldn't pass up an invitation like this.
  • We received word that the Turkish translation of Content Rules is now available just as Ann heads to Istanbul to give a Keynote.

On top of all that I have a happy and healthy family who love me. That is really all a guy needs to count his blessings in this world.

As I sit down with my family and the Thanksgiving feast I'm cooking I know I'll have a smile on my face and give thanks for all that I have.

Happy Thanksgiving.
