As far as we know, we only have One Life to live.


In an ideal world, we would all demonstrate our appreciation for our bodies and minds by treating them in the best way possible. But sometimes, it takes confronting a life-threatening giant (like cancer) to light a fire under our rear and make the necessary changes to keep on going.


Alex Echols had to do just that. After doctors detected cancer in his system, he shifted his mindset and adopted an attitude of gratitude for his relationships, his health, and his life. He was able to make it through chemotherapy and now chooses to make the most of his One Life. Gratitude has become his most important daily practice.


To hear how he overcame this challenge that so many people succumb to and how we can also cultivate a life-changing habit of living in gratitude, check out Episode 232!
