Grateful for Everything


Congratulations to Skip Johnson, Vice President of Gold's Gyms of West Georgia - an IHRSA member since 1993 - for the rave reviews he's receiving on his inspirational book, Grateful for Everything as it continues to climb the charts, recently reaching the top 3% on Amazon’s rankings.

The book offers practical and empowering ways to develop and use a mindset of gratitude to overcome the daily challenges of our personal and professional lives.

Johnson comments, “This book is not a way to learn to be ‘happy’ about whatever happens in our lives. What I explore is how to take the hands that we have been dealt, develop steps to become grateful for the lessons to be learned, and then begin to weave it all into a mosaic of life that resembles more of a great game to play, instead of a mire to be trudged through on a daily basis.”

Among the book's many 5 star reviews is a comment from Amazon Top 10 Reviewer Jim Chambers, "The book is more than a simple philosophy about life or a collection of platitudes. The author gives specific examples to illustrate his ideas, and there are a number of practical tips for successfully transforming your outlook on life."
