Begin by being thankful

Before you dive headlong into the scramble to get more and more, step aside. Take a moment to let yourself be overwhelmed with gratitude for all you have.

Your choices matter, all of them. And you’ll always make better choices when you come from a perspective of gratitude.

You’ve worked your whole life to get where you are, to have what you have. Whatever that encompasses, the more you respect and appreciate it, the more you can make of it.

There is great value in your life, and great potential value as well. Gratitude shines a bright light on all that value, enabling you to make the most of it.

Gratitude gives you the ability to see the positive aspects of each situation. That positions you and equips you to achieve useful, beneficial results.

Whatever the challenge, whatever the activity, whatever the ambition, gratitude makes you more genuine, more purposeful, more effective. Begin by being thankful for what is, and you’ll soon be thankful for even more.
