Gratitude

“Be happy with what you have while working for what you want.” Kipfer.[1]

How easy it is to use malcontent as a motivator, yet how well does it work? Being disgruntled and unhappy with our circumstances seems like it should get us out of the ghetto, but does it? When was the last time we heard of anyone’s rise to fame and fortune being born of these negative emotions? On the contrary it’s gratitude that gets us what we want. Oprah Winfrey swears she created herself, built her life and her empire on gratitude.

Next time when what you want seems far away, stop and repeat this phrase, three times in a row, at least three times per day. “I am happy and grateful for all that I am and all that I have. I am happy and grateful for the opportunity to work joyously toward my goals.”
