Is Thankfulness Important to success?
I am currently reading a book all about Thankfulness. It has a simple concept, shared between several authors. All the authors are women and I suspect it was written with women as its prime audience. I am about three quarters of the way through and thoroughly enjoying every word of it. Each of them contributes to each chapter by taking look at different ways of applying thankfulness. They also look at the difference it has made in their lives and by extension how it affects our lives and outcomes.
In all of their stories, built on their real life experiences there is the compelling theme that the degree of your appreciation determines the extent to which your life works for the best. Not surprisingly, reducing our level of thanks seems to carry us in the opposite direction.
Even in the hard times, it is worthwhile seeking out some little thing to be thankful for. For it seems that this very act has a way of blossoming, bringing in some light and a more positive outlook that leads to a better outcome. Life begins to work again. (more…)Ron and Sue
