LIF 126 – A Gift That Really Makes an Impact

LIF 126 – A Gift That Really Makes an Impact

I dropped the ball. Seriously, I really messed up.

But through my mistake, I learned just how much a special birthday letter I give to each of my children means to them (and to me).

Purpose of this Episode

You can positively influence the most important people in your life with this special gift idea. And as a side benefit, this birthday letter will impact you as much as it impacts the receiver.

Tips Shared in this Episode

When giving this special birthday letter, here are a few guidelines to follow:

  • Be consistent. To make the greatest impact, write a birthday letter every year.
  • Make your birthday letters thematic. It’s easier to organize your thoughts when you use a theme.
  • The first year you write a birthday letter, include a “Treasure Box” as a gift. This will be a place for the gift receiver to keep all the birthday letters you write to him or her.
  • If you mistakenly forget to write a birthday letter one year, be quick to apologize.

Call to Action

  • Set a goal to start writing a birthday letter and give it as a gift this year to someone who is important to you.
