Power of gratitude

Gratitude has great power. If you can find a way to be thankful when everyone else is resentful, that’s power.

What you’re genuinely and deeply thankful for, you’ll figure out how to create more of. That’s effectiveness.

If you’re faced with a difficult situation, being thankful is a response not immediately obvious, maybe never considered at all. Yet when you do practice gratitude it can illuminate a path forward and inspire you to persist on that path.

Be thankful for this, for now, for the world as it is and for all the possibilities encompassed herein. Be thankful, and empower yourself to create the most favorable outcomes.

Gratitude is not just a matter of being nice or polite or optimistic. Real, unequivocal gratitude has the power to bring value and goodness to life, even in the most challenging circumstances.

Be thankful, and bring your best options out into the open where you can seize them and act on them. Be thankful, and give the great benefit of your gratefulness to all of life.

— Ralph Marston
