Gratitude is the one thing that helped me most in my life from all the personal development and spiritual practices that I did and that’s why I want to inspire 100.000 people to discover how to feel grateful more often and live a happy life.

I believe Thanksgiving is a habit, not just a day, but this day is a great opportunity to start a gratitude practice, and I'm happy to provide this resource, with over 600 free episodes and at least 1 inspiring interview per week.

"It's not happiness that makes us grateful; it's gratefulness that makes us happy." - David Steindl-Rast

I do this by interviewing successful people and getting them to share fascinating stories about how gratitude has helped them get to where they are now.

CEO & CO-FOUNDER of Wavelenght, the healthy eating app that helps you reduce cravings, stop overeating, and improve your relationship to food and your body for good.For a long period of time, she thought her struggle with dieting was all her fault. She felt so ashamed that she didn’t talk to anyone about what she was going through — not even when she was diagnosed with pre-diabetes and PCOS, or had major weight loss surgery (and gained the weight back). Taking back her power started with a deeper, kinder understanding of herself. With the help of her mom, Dr. Martha Katz, PhD, MS, she finally learned to work with her body and mind, let go of the shame, and meet her goals in an enjoyable way.

Hi Georgian! I have been listening to your podcast since it's inception and I have never stopped to thank you..I truly credit you for literally saving my life during some very dark times ... when I knew I had to keep gratitude at the forefront of my thinking, but it was SO incredibly hard at the time. Your podcasts became part of my daily routine and slowly but surely I was able to climb back into the light! So..I just wanted to share my gratitude for YOU and to say that I am so very delighted to see that your podcast has continued on its incredible trajectory bringing bigger and bigger names to your platform ...not that big names are better than "small" names, lol!, but it just shows how widespread and important your unique podcast has become! It is amazing and you deserve every accolade that comes your way for all your hard work over the years!! THANK YOU!♥️ xoxo

I really enjoy your message. Thank you very much. I have noticed that the mixing of audio is off. Meaning, your intro music is sometimes very loud while the vocal is can be rather quiet. Keep up the great work!!
