Happy Thanksgiving 2020!

Happy Thanksgiving! About half of Eric’s Tips readers are in the USA, where Thanksgiving is a national holiday today, but like I say each year… gratitude transcends all borders!

This is the 13th consecutive year that we’ve done this. I don’t use this blog much anymore, but I still think it’s a good place to have this annual Thanksgiving tradition!

For me personally, it’s a great opportunity to be reminded of how thankful I am for all of the subscribers and customers that have allowed me to have this business for so many years.

I want everyone reading this to know that I’m thankful for YOU. Without you, Eric’s Tips would not exist. Whether this is your first time participating in our annual Thanksgiving contest, or your 13th, thank you for being a part of it.

Here’s a quick video update from me sharing what I’m thankful for this year…

Here’s a picture of my family taken earlier this year at our oldest son’s wedding which was held in our yard:


I’m so thankful for my family, and gaining another daughter this year.

Here’s a link to the memorial I set up for my friend Rudy who passed away a couple months ago. I’m thankful that he was my friend.

Here’s a video of some of our dancers performing on a stage I built in my backyard. I think the song will be an encouragement if you’re experiencing difficult times:

To see why this performance was basically a miracle, check out the version with the raw audio and commentary.

Next, here are a couple of freebies as a token of my appreciation. This year I’ve got a couple of unreleased ebooks with rights for you…

(The download file has been removed, to keep the value for everyone who got it. Be sure to stay subscribed to Eric’s Tips and download future bonuses right away!)

This zip file contains two Word documents. I spent hundreds of dollars to have these researched and written, and they have not been used at all yet… you may want to skim through and do some basic editing. These are hot topics right now. You can have full Private Label Rights to rebrand these, turn them into PDF’s and sell them or use them for lead magnets. Normally I leave the Thanksgiving gifts online (you can go back and find the past 12 years worth of them), but this year I will be removing this file after a week! This is to protect the value for everyone, and because I intend to sell these ebooks in the future!

Now, here is the 13th annual Eric’s Tips Thanksgiving contest!

It’s a good thing to express your gratitude for what you’re thankful for. In fact, it’s been shown to have health benefits.

So once again, we are going to do a group exercise to demonstrate our thankfulness.

All you have to do is post a comment below saying something you’re thankful for. It could even be just a few words. There are no bonus points for writing more or writing better. It’s about participation.

In a few days, I will choose 10 comments at RANDOM, and will send $20 via Paypal to each to those 10 people! It’s a small way for me to share a bit of the harvest. I will also announce the winners here on this post, as usual.

If you need examples or inspiration feel free to check out any of the previous years.

Please post a comment below and let us know what you’re thankful for 🙂

Have a great day and a happy Thanksgiving!

    Thanks for the Thanksgiving message Eric. I loved the dance video and the message One More Step. It encourages us to take one more step and not to give up. I’m greatful that God has spared my family in the midst of this pandemic. A few of our family members got infected but got safely through. Praise be to God

  2. Vincent

    I am thankful that God guided me all the way through our struggles as church ministers. I’m about to give up from the ministry this year, but God gave wisdom for a better decision making. I stayed and had a wonderful year in the ministry despite pandemic. Financial status was also a struggle, but God supplied all the needs so far. 🙂


    I am grateful that I was able to get a job during the early times of Covid-19 and still doing the work. Working in health care as a hospital orderly. Grateful because in Australia so many people lost their jobs with businesses forced into lock down.

  4. Marge

    I am thankful for the awakening happening within our country. Americans are beginning to realize how
    important it is to stay involved and be aware of happenings taking place in our country and take responsibility
    for keeping our country what it needs to be, in order to remain a free republic and provide a safe and enduring
    future for our children and grandchildren. We need God in our lives and courage to stand for what is right.

  30. ileana

    This have been miracle year for me , I was born in Cuba , So must of my life I was thinking and guided by and like the crowd. I always felt as an outsider, still there was nothing I could do but find some books that were even underground most of the time so I could understand my point of view
    I move t o Canada in 2008 at 40..I new journey started and I was still feeling more or less the same inside me
    This year and because I am always reading I found the real reason why I have been lacking , missing something important .
    Awareness , knowing myself inside out, knowing and recognizing I am not part of a particular crowd or system or group or something else . BUT me part of everything .
    I was socked with the pandemic when started and so many people just dying and started looking for a real reason why I have been put on this earth during this times .I think we all need this awakening ..I thank you Eric for been part of your list for many years , you have helped me a lot .thank you, thank, you thank you

  31. Duane

    I’m thankful for my family despite the challenges we are going through.

  35. Sylvia

    I am grateful for my children and their families and the fact that they are all in good health.

  36. Laza

    I am thankful for God’s grace. I am His child I belong to His family. He is my Dad and cares for me.

  37. Donnie Ellis

    I have been blessed beyond measure in this last year, in spite of the virus. I have been able to work on developing an online business and continue working my regular job. I was able to take part in the Kingdom Entrepreneur 3 day program. Although I was always behind since I work nights. But the last day blew me away. When I saw the video and saw the countries that were represented there from every nation and country in the world. It amazed me how strategically God has placed his people. It helped me to realize that we are not alone here in the United States but that God’s people are everywhere and we are standing up and thriving in spite of the pandemic, politics and other struggles (including death and sickness) battling our countries. God has blessed us beyond our or my understanding. I have been more aware of His presence that surrounds all of us and His goodness and Mercy. It reminds me of the scriptures in Hebrews where it talks about the great cloud of witnesses. I could hear the Father saying, don’t look at the ones behind you but look at the ones who are around you now. I am blessed.

  38. KC

    I’m really thankful for everything that I have now:- a roof over my head, food on our table, a beautiful family with three beautiful teenage children, and my mum who just celebrated her 87th birthday. All of them are in good health! God bless you and yours, Eric!

  39. Andromachi Polychroniou

    I am thankful to be alive. Thankful for having my family. Thankful for the roof above my head, the food on our table. Thankful to be able to read and write. There are too many things I am grateful. I think a lot of other people’s comments express me as well. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to remember and share what I am thankful to God as well. Totally loved the dance and song.

  40. Laurence Edgar

    I am hitting 76 years of age, I am so thankful to God Above for my good health, strength, sound mind and joy.

  41. janet watson

    I am thankful that I have a loving heavenly father and a faithful God

  42. Gary McLeod

    This year is a special Thanksgiving for me. So much to be thankful. I have my new dog Rocky, he is a handful but is so much fun and so sweet. I have my friends David And Jennifer and daughter Kator . They go out of their way to check on me. My lady friend Patty who is such a delight. This year I was diagnosed with a cancer tumor in my throat. Now that is not something to be thankful for, but it has brought me closer to my God. A God who is gracious and forgiving. I’m so grateful that he is walking beside me in this journey. He gives me strength in the knowledge that I will overcome this cancer. He gives me comfort when in pain. When faced with adversity it is so comforting to know you have Gods power and wisdom to pray to. Many more things to be grateful, but I wanted everyone to know, that God’s grace and power is the most important to me.

  43. Geoff Lord

    Thank you for sharing. As always we appreciate everything that do for us and wish you and yours all the best.

  44. Diane Ladd

    Thankful, especially this year that God is in charge of everything and this thanksgiving is representing over 400 years since the Pilgrim Fathers entered the USA – amazing 400 years and Jesus is still being declared as Lord in the USA. As for me grateful for the small acts of kindness by others that brighten each day and for the natural beauty around that never fails to impress whether in the garden or countryside around…

    Thanks Eric for sharing your family news and yourself as you provide the IM and info marketing training and products to many…

  45. Kevin

    Eric, it’s been a pleasure following you for about 10 years now. It’s great seeing people in this community like yourself and Russel Brunson who give so much back to people who are less fortunate. Although I still don’t make a full time income online i’m thankful for still working my full time job to provide for the family which luckily has all stayed healthy through this pandemic. Also thankful for a great daughter who’s pregnant with a healthy looking first grandchild that should be born any week now due right about Christmas. God bless you and your family and happy holidays.

  46. Stanley Piszczatowski

    I am grateful for all God has given me, my wife and three healthy children and the ability to preserve during these challenging times.

  47. Jake

    Very sorry to hear of your dear friend’s passing. Even though an incredible loss and much grieving, good to hear you’re taking this in stride as part of God’s plan. I lost a close friend several years ago and the loss never goes away, but the ability to deal with it gets stronger. Been in the IM arena about a decade now, with huge losses and frustrations. Yet still thankful for the opportunity to soldier on and try again every morning. Looking fwd to implementing a strategy through Courserious.
