Show Notes

  • People think gratitude is a result of something but it’s actually something you makeup.
  • You don’t have to be grateful, you choose to be grateful.
  • Appreciation includes gratitude but it also has other meanings like the increase in value.
  • Gratitude is the start of the value creation chain and leads to creativity.
  • Creativity is putting things together and you don’t put things together that you don’t value.
  • You can avoid confrontation by writing down things you are grateful for in the other person.
  • Capitalism is the only system that promotes cooperation between strangers.
  • Gratitude leads to creativity, which leads to cooperation, which leads to opportunity.
  • Gratitude eliminates negative thoughts. You can’t be grateful and negative at the same time.
  • Envy is the inverse of gratitude.
  • Envy and gratitude are choices, but if you make the same choice over and over again it becomes a habit.
  • Julien Simon came to the understanding that the bigger the population we have the more resources we have.
  • There are no natural resources, there is only human ingenuity. With an increase in ingenuity, more becomes available.
  • Smarter people tend to avoid examining their own thinking.
  • Operating as an entrepreneur while living your relationships from a perspective of depletion will lead to burnout.
  • When gratitude is not the basis for life it leads to depletion.
  • For any event you go to, get into a mindset of gratitude first.
  • For any relationship conflict you have, if you increase the level of appreciation you have for the other person it breaks down barriers.


“The proper training for being incredibly wealthy in the world is to get very, very good at gratitude on a daily basis.” -Dan Sullivan

“People have capitalism completely backwards. Capitalism isn’t the cause of anything. Capitalism is the result of something.” -Dan Sullivan

“If you multiply envy times guilt, what you get is massive indignation.” -Dan Sullivan

“Who you are going to be ten years from now is a function of the books you are read and who you hang out with.” -Charley Jones
