This Christmas with everything that's happening, it may be difficult to think about being grateful, but a grateful heart under all circumstances is the key to unlock God's blessings. My advice to you is to stay strong and stay positive. I know it's tough, especially when you watch the news or read the newspaper, but now more than ever, your attitude plays such an important role in shaping your future!
In this new economy, we'll need to improve our skills, strengthen our relationships and increase our efforts to achieve what we want to accomplish in 2013. One thing I do know about this country is that anything is possible and no circumstances or challenges can affect your attitude without your permission. Guard your thoughts along with your self-talk. Listen, read and study success principles like never before. Saturate your mind with positive information just as the news can saturate a mind with the negative. Free enterprise will always prevail. Your family and potentially thousands of others you haven't even met yet are counting on you.
Around this time of the year, I suggest you get away from the negative distractions and start reflecting on the many things to be thankful for. For some, it's the promise of a fresh beginning just around the corner - because everyone starts the New Year with a clean slate. We all have the same 24 hours in a day and 365 days of opportunities to create something huge; something that really makes a difference, something fulfilling with a purpose and something that can reward you.
My desire is that 2013 develops into the best year of your life! It CAN happen and will happen for many of you as long as we all keep a PMA (positive mental attitude). My hope is that it will happen for you as well! For that to become a reality, it must start with you and your decision along with a PMA to make something great happen.
On behalf of my best friend & wife Deede-Anne our four children Lace, Joey, Vincenzo and Audrianna and the entire staff at Granatelli Motor Sports, thank you for enriching our lives this past year and Happy Holidays to you and your families!
