So we are in Cleveland at the Dan Kennedy Wealth Days on Friday & Saturday. And I’m thinking, “Man, I am tired, and we are in the middle of a launch, and I sure don’t feel like searching for a great video for this week’s Sunday Morning Inspiration, maybe I’ll just skip this week, no one is gonna notice anyway…”

We come back from lunch and the woman sitting to Maritza’s right says to me, “You know what? I’ve been glancing over at you all day trying to figure out where I know you from – you’re the Sunday Morning Inspiration guy!”

That was the last thing I expected to hear. I thanked her and we did not get a chance to talk as the program was starting. Then there were lots of folks asking us questions when we wrapped up today, so I did not get to thank Sharon Hay for your kind words that meant more than you can know…

So thank you Sharon!

And what’s also cool is that when I went to look for an appropriate video and found this one you are about to watch on appreciation, the creator of the video is a colleague I had not connected with in about 10 years. So thanks to you too, Barbara!

And who will you thank after you watch this video?

    Thanks Jeff. I’ve seen the video before but it’s worth a second and third viewing. Still brings tears to my eyes. As a Sunday morning inspiration video – have you seen the Finish Strong from Simple Truth? Worth a great Sunday Morning Inspirational.

    Thanks again!!

  • It was really cute – Sharon kept looking over and we began talking and then when she realized you were the “Sunday Morning Inspiration Guy”, she did thank you and said she looked forward to it every Sunday morning… ๐Ÿ˜€

    I think we all need inspiration, motivation and a little “kick in the pants” sometimes… I’m glad Sharon gave you a little nudge to share this beautiful video & story ๐Ÿ˜€

    It’s so wonderful to be loved and appreciated. I’m going to call my son right now and tell him how much I love him.

    Hugs to you,


  • Great find Jeff!
    As much as we are all into social media…let’s not forget the power to make our message stand out by using the old fashioned letter!
    Showing appreciation is powerful.

  • What a beautiful reminder to tell people how much they have impacted our lives. Which reminds me… I have a quote on my wall from you, Jeff, which inspires me to create blog posts, articles and audios. And I pass it on all the time, most recently to a guy bogged down writing his dissertation for his PhD. He said it helped him so much. I love the ripple effect!

    So thanks to you for these inspiring words, Jeff: “There are more people waiting to hear your message,who can only hear it uniquely from YOU,than you can ever get to in your lifetime.”

    The video brought tears to my eyes too as I remembered teachers who inspired me but were never thanked. How thoughtless we are sometimes.

    I look forward to your Sunday Morning Inspiration, Jeff. It does matter. You are touching lives.

    Thank you!

  • And thank goodness for Sharon. Jeff, you start my Sunday morning off so nicely with your Sunday Morning Inspiration. It’s amazing how we are “shown” what we are intended to do even when we think otherwise.

    Blessings to you.

    Glad you rethought sending out the Sunday Morning Inspirational today. It brought back the memory of a wonderful teacher my twin brother and I had in the first and second grade. (1948-1949)

    This wonderful teacher brought us into the world of books, music, dancing and using our imagination. Her influence and teaching skills were far beyond the little two room school she taught out of.

    My brother and I have never forgotten her. We tried to see and thank her in 1957, but unfortunately she could not see us because of her failing health. However, she asked her husband to tell us, that we were the children she had never been blessed with. I really think now she meant all her students were her children.

    So thank you Jeff for bringing this wonderful teacher back into my memories. Also thank you to all the teachers who have reached out and touched their students in a positive way.


  • Just Thanks! I was a teacher for 30+ years.

    Nice one, Jeff!! I don’t always make it over here on Sundays, because, the weekends can get so hectic, so I’m really glad I took the time out today! Super cool the way Sharon ‘nudged’ you to post this – I love it!

  • Through the power of the internet I was able to connect with and thank a teacher who made an impact on me. Gratitude has changed the way I look at things–but I always love reminders to practice it each day, so I’m grateful for you, Jeff, and the effort you go to to bring us your Sunday inspirations!


  • As well…

    There is also a lesson here…

    We really NEVER know how many lives we touch and how many may look to us for inspiration! “BECAUSE… Many NEVER say Thank You!”

    We need to “say Thank You more!” So the “inspiration givers can tuck them away” for the times they/we may be too tired to go on… just that little push of knowing that we make a difference is enough to keep us going!

    Thank You Jeff. Because of you I discovered something very important about myself when taking your Article Marketing Teleseminar Class. It was “the gift of self recognition!”

    Hugs to You & Maritza.


  • Jeff:

    I tried to share this on Facebook but it did not go, although I gave it permission to access my information. You know… I use the “Sexy Bookmarks” WordPress Plugin for sharing. It’s easy and works pretty well. I believe that Maritza uses it too!

    Hey Jeff, thanks for sharing. I’ve stopped being surprised at how we get led to certain things we need, even when we don’t even know we need them. Glad you connected with someone you needed to and we get the benefit of the results. Happy Sunday!

    Mike – Showing appreciation is a powerful thing – costs the one showing it very little, yet has a major impact on both the giver and receiver…
