Gratitude is important to you.
The 21 Success Traits of Western
The goal of IGEI is to create a
gratitude immersion culture. In order to do that, we
need to operate following a success model. When we
look at the world we see how Western Man has changed
the world in so many ways over the past centuries.
We see that the kinds of skills deployed by Western
Man dominate the world and has created the systems
that we use to organize our lives. Because of
Western man’s deployment of these skills we have
light switches that work, highways we can drive on,
hot and cold running water in our homes. We have so
much in our world and we are dedicated to teaching people to be
But in order to teach that, our
work must be organized, planned and implemented
using the systems in a timely manner. You Can
Acquire the Business and Planning Skills that
Western Man Uses To Dominate the World!
It's a whole new world. 20
years ago there was no empowerment strategy. There
was very little use of the internet. In 1995 I put
together an email list called the EAF-L list which
brought in hundreds of subscribers. It was a
phenomenon. Today email lists can have hundreds of
thousands of subscribers.
There was no Facebook, no
blogging, no RSS, no YouTubes, no social networking.
We did the best we could with USENET groups but they
were cumbersome and difficult. Creating our own
communities through the internet was virtually
impossible. And there were no EBooks.
Today, 20 years later, it's a
whole new world. Blogging, FaceBook and YouTube have
revolutionized the internet. YouTubes are available
on just about any subject. With the new high memory
cameras, anyone can create content and place a
YouTube on the net. YouTubes are considered the best
way to share content and gain support because they
are interactive. Put up a YouTube and almost
immediately you get feedback from interested
The world of business is
changing as well.
The world of business has
changed. Who would have thought that businesses
would be thinking about customers’ needs instead of
touting what they want to offer? Who would have
thought that business owners would be thinking about
new kinds of business practices that give value to
Who would have thought that
business owners and high muck-a-muck managers would
be going undercover to discover what it feels like
to work in their company? It is indeed a sea change.
For the first time in history, business owners seem
The world of gratitude business
is a new phenomenon. Through the Gratitude Business
Model and the internet we can reach customers
anywhere in the world and bring them into our
business community. Through social networking we can
create our own Word of Mouth Ambassadors. Through
the use of gratitude products we can bond them to us
through the power of gratitude.
Being praised and appreciated
makes us feel good because it releases mind changing
pleasure-producing chemicals into our brains. And
you as a business person in the Gratitude Century
can now reach out anywhere in the world and create
those mind changing experiences for your customers;
over and over again until they belong to you.
In this new business world of
Gratitude Empowerment who are the major
participants? Those businesses that want to enhance
their profit differential to increase market share,
create long-term customers and build a
community-based marketing program. With the right
gratitude business skills and knowhow through IGEI
Gratitude Empowerment Certification programs, they
can become the dominant company in their industry.

that has social benefit purposes. The International Gratitude
Empowerment Institute (IGEI) sells products and services for creating a

In addition to our profit motive, it is a social
purpose corporation with these additional social benefits and goals:
1) Community: To create and
provide an environment for low and middle income people to learn how to
work together positively by teaching personal self-esteem building and
how to build self-esteem in others, thus developing a community based on
faith and gratitude resulting in a gratitude immersion culture.
To empower girls and women through special programs including sports and
entertainment projects for self-esteem building and character
development. To enable them to have a superordinate goal of giving to
the world with no expectation of personal return such as tree planting
projects to fight climate change. To use gratitude in sports to give

3) Entrepreneurship: Develop
social entrepreneurship projects through micro-financing of small and
medium-sized enterprises including entrepreneurial training programs.
4) Technology: To teach skills to
minorities, women and youth to become Mobile Entrepreneurs through
technologies such as Skype, webinars and podcasts anywhere in the world.
Today’s entrepreneur needs to master these skills even if they have a
brick and mortar outlet for their business. We will teach them how they
can use these new technologies to build their business.
5) Spiritual Development: Through
our self-esteem building programs we will increase personal fulfillment,
enable people to create peaceful loving relationships. When we build
self-esteem, we build a person's spirit. Spiritual development is the
key to bringing us all together to work and live together in a peaceful
world. Spiritual development in our workforce makes people want to be
productive, to be creative and to give their loyalty to each other and
their employers. Without spiritual development it is difficult for
people to lead productive, happy lives.
6): Spiritual Therapy Programs:
Many people understand how important it is to build the self-esteem of
young people and working age people. But many people don't understand
the needs of the Elderly, Disabled and Wheelchair Rider populations.
Some see them as unimportant or nonproductive. But many people don't
understand how they feel and the benefits we all can gain from them. The
fact is, in the IGEI Gratitude Immersion World, we understand that these
populations have a great deal to offer. The fact is they have much they
can learn, much to feel, and much to share which can help us understand
gratitude in many ways.
There are many stories of
are not in wheelchairs but are bedridden,
who make their families' lives happy by their
cheerful, loving, giving, and self-esteem building personalities.
Everyone has something to give. But the fact is, no one can give from an
empty dish. No matter where you live there are others around you who
need positive energy. How do we give them a way to build their own self-esteem
so they can give to their world?
Through spiritual therapy you
will learn how to use gratitude as a power to build
your own self-esteem and reach out into the world to give to
others. One way is by being in the outdoors,
fishing and being close to nature where
your wholeness. By creating intergenerational
volunteer programs you practice the gratitude
skills you are learning. We share with them
the spiritual therapy programs of IGEI.
Spiritual Therapy is a spiritual healing method
that focuses on the rebuilding of inner wholeness. Techniques include
gratitude practices, self-esteem building, meditation, affirmations,
and reprogramming your subconscious mind. These techniques are
based on repetitive actions and interactions,
building new connections in your brain, to help yourself and
others to grow, become more creative and develop spiritual health.
Rebuilding your self-esteem is a vital part of spiritual therapy because
high self-esteem is the basis of wholeness.
Spiritual therapy is best performed in nature
because in nature you are able to reconnect with Mother Earth, become
grounded and feel the energy around us. Our original way of life was
immersed in the natural world. Once cities formed when agriculture
developed, the clearings of civilization through the development of
urbanization separated us from our connection with the earth. Spiritual
therapy through fishing is designed to reestablish that connection.
includes fishing as an
important ecospiritual component of IGEI.
Fishing teaches people to
hope, to keep trying over and over again.
