Gratitude

May 28, 2013 — 2 Comments

Being thankful every day for what you have is a mind altering experience.  Try this quick and easy exercise every day.  Wake up and immediately say what you are grateful for.  It could be as simple as another day on earth or your feet touching the ground. The ability to breathe… or you could get more involved – and be grateful for a specific person, condition, thing, whatever it is in your life that you are grateful for. 

GratitudeThere are half full and half empty people all around us.  The half full group has their glass filled with gratitude.  Gratitude is one of those emotions that can increase wellbeing and happiness among those who deliberately create it.  Gratitude can also increase energy, optimism and empathy; all characteristics of positive happy people.

Imagine being aware of all the good things that surround you.  Imagine how much easier it would be to handle diversity and opposition when you have this upbeat attitude?  Imagine having a purpose in life, an appreciation for those around you, and a willingness to take action to show your feeling of gratitude. 

Those are the ingredients to a more fulfilled and balanced life. Focus on the big and the small things to show your gratitude.  You will find that as you express this new attitude, you will emit a positive energy or aura that will attract into your life exactly what you need to proceed and succeed. 

Gratitude is a state of mind that we all have access to.  It takes practice and with practice, it reaps great benefits.

 
What are you grateful for today?

John Maxwell said, "Everything rises and falls on leadership". I buy into that and have been a student of leadership for over 25 years. I was born and raised in Jamaica and reside in South Florida with Edna, my beautiful wife of 25 years. We have one daughter and have gained a son, her husband. I am the president of Robin Lewis Insurance, a full service Independent Insurance Agency. My passion is to inspire and guide others into discovering and reaching their God-Given potential. This blog was created to support that cause. You can expect a new post every week on the topics of Leadership, Personal Development, Insurance Solutions and every now and again some Personal Thoughts. My hope is that we can encourage, strengthen and challenge each other. Your comments are encouraged and welcomed here anytime!
