Gratitude

True abundance begins with gratitude and thankfulness. Being thankful focuses our attention on the things we do have, and helps those things to grow.

Make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you’ll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you’ll find that you have more of it.

The things you appreciate will grow -- your customers, your business, your skills, your family, your faith, your self.

Do you want to “have it all"? With an attitude of gratitude you’ll realize that you already do have it all. Everything you could ever desire is already inside of you. You simply need to appreciate it, and love it and nurture it enough so that it is fully expressed in your life.

Be thankful for the person you are, for the situation you’re in, for the challenges you’re given. That is the first step toward a positive, fulfilling life. Your sincere gratitude will bring you abundance.

— Ralph Marston
