“Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.”
– Lao Tzu
As a life coach and guru to entrepreneurs, Lee Brower has influenced many of them to express more gratitude through contributing and giving. In this video, he shares an incident involving one of his clients who wanted to do something generous out of pure kindness and generosity.
Lee Brower often talks about giving unconditionally as being “in gratitude”, as opposed to being grateful for something. Through the conscious effort to regularly practice and express Gratitude, we set the conditions under which events like “The Champ at the Pump” can occur.
“To find gratitude and generosity when you could reasonably find hurt and resentment will surprise you. It will be so surprising because you will see so much of the opposite: people who have much more than others yet who react with anger when one advantage is lost or with resentment when an added gift is denied.”
– Henry B. Eyring
As a life coach and guru to entrepreneurs and family leaders, Lee Brower is perhaps best known for his work on Gratitude. In this video, Lee provides an example of how he sets up conditions under which expressions of creative gratitude can occur.
How might you design situations that can multiply the gifts you give or the contribution you make to others?
“Most of what exists in the universe…has little value and yields little result; on the other hand, a few things work fantastically well and have tremendous impact.”
One of the reasons Lee Brower’s clients think of him as a business guru is because of his relentless emphasis on doing what is most essential in our lives. In this short video, Lee describes the overwhelming volume of data in the world, how it’s affecting our productivity, and how focusing on the essential is an antidote.
Lee ends this video mentioning those areas that he’s most passionate about and that give him the greatest results. In his coaching, he will routinely ask his clients to rate their passion and their progress in key areas that matter most to them. This is how as a life coach, Lee Brower helps his clients focus on the essential.
“Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance”
– Eckhart Tolle
It’s likely that Lee Brower became a guru and life coach to many people when the movie “The Secret” came out. One of the most popular segments of the movie featured Lee telling the story of his Gratitude Rock. In this video, Lee shares not only retells his story but he also shares some of the impact Gratitude Rocks have had in other people’s lives.
Since “The Secret” came out a decade ago, Lee Brower has been studying Gratitude and refining his Gratitude practice. One of several innovations that he and Empowered Wealth have developed recently is a method of addressing “Gratitude fatigue”. Gratitude fatigue is a term coined by Dr. Robert Emmons, the preeminent Gratitude researcher. Dr. Emmons noted that people who regularly write down or talk about the things they’re grateful for, over time tend to repeat themselves. He called this “Gratitude fatigue”. To counter this, Lee Brower and Empowered Wealth use the acronym P.O.T.E.N.T., which stands for “People, Opportunities, Things, Experiences, Nature, and Thoughts (or ideas, like “peace” or “serenity”)”.
Why don’t you try it yourself? What “People, Opportunities, Things, Experiences, Nature, and Thoughts” are you grateful for?
