Ten percent more thankful

Gratitude expands its own territory. Be thankful, and you’ll create more reasons to be thankful.

Focus your attention on some small, simple object. Take a moment to consider the many levels at which you can appreciate its presence in your life.

Be thankful for what you have and you make it more useful. Be thankful for every experience and your experience becomes a continuing source of great value.

With gratitude, you transform defeat into victory. You rise above petty squabbles, let go of debilitating excuses, and achieve.

What would it take for you to be just ten percent more thankful for this moment? Imagine the positive impact that would have on your results.

Gratitude is a choice you can make that’s independent of every other factor. And the more gratitude you have, the more power you have to transcend all those other factors.
