You Are The 1%

You Are The 1%


Be grateful for the life you have not the one you don’t. Often times we get so caught up wanting, wishing, and worrying about the life we don’t have or the life we think we want.

We have quote on the wall of our facility at Jeremy Scott Fitness here in Scottsdale that reads, “someone else is praying for the things you take for granted.”

Think about that for a second, there are millions of people out there wishing for your life and millions of others wishing for your “problems” let that sink in for a minute.

Did you know if you make over $34,000 a year you are the richest 1% of all people on the planet? Yes, that is correct if you make just over $34,000 a year by yourself you are the richest 1% of all the people of planet earth. The next time you think you don’t have enough understand you are probably the 1%.

Stop comparing your car, your clothes, your house, and your body to your neighbors, co-workers, and friends. You have so much more than you can even understand. That fact you can take the time to sit down and read this on your phone or computer is a luxury millions of people will never get.

Have gratitude for everything you are given, I know millionaires who think they’re broke and people who make $20K a year that feel like they own the world.

Attitude is gratitude. If you see things in your life, as they really are with a grateful outlook or at least view every experience as a chance to learn and grow you can change your entire life in a matter of minutes. It’s that powerful trust me, I flipped the gratitude switch about 8 years ago and haven’t looked back yet.

When you have sincere gratitude in your life, the kind of gratitude that fills your soul…. there isn’t room for much else.
