Sometimes I feel as though I am the luckiest person in the world.

I have been happily married to my best friend for 21 years and we have three terrific kids who are growing up quickly.

I love my work and enjoy meeting fascinating people and making a positive difference through my business.

I have a strong faith and attend a wonderful church that constantly challenges and equips me.

My beloved Richmond Tigers even won the AFL premiership last year after a 37 year drought (I never get tired of writing that).

Life is good.

But am I really the luckiest person in the world?

I know that many others claim that title and I’m sure that they have compelling reasons.

But I guess this isn’t a competition, it’s a state of mind.

I hope that you see yourself as the luckiest person in the world and that the year ahead gives you a range of experiences and blessings that continually affirm that perspective.
