Happiness Starts with Gratitude

“Happiness Starts With Gratitude”

30-Minute Presentation


David George Brooke – That Gratitude Guy, presents a fast paced 30-minute talk on the incredible transformative power of embracing gratitude.


Having suffered numerous losses and traumatic setbacks, David speaks about his real-life experiences, and offers solutions that can impact lives.


By applying the lessons of living with gratitude, David illustrates how any situation in life, no matter how stressful or tragic, can be reframed and refocused into a fulfilling journey by using the simple principles of gratefulness. 


As an example, the use of a daily gratitude journal, gives people the tools in a toolkit designed to create healthy coping mechanisms in a world of way too many destructive ones.


Be prepared to look at your life differently, and experience the feeling of creating “an attitude of gratitude.” It has the power to completely transform your outlook, your happiness, and your quality of life.
