Invest In Yourself, Be Thankful

Being thankful is surprisingly powerful. A friend of mine developed a technique designed to help build this ability which typically lies dormant in many of us.

It’s the Gratitude List.

To make it easier, I’ve modified the technique. Instead of listing the four or five things you’re grateful for each day, just list one.
There’s power in writing down just one thing. Interestingly as you surf your mind recalling the day, no doubt, you’ll uncover several acts of gratitude. As you take this mental inventory, a couple of things happen. First, you’ve actually slowed your life’s pace, and in doing so you’re reliving the great things that have taken place. Taking time to reflect reminds us to believe in the big picture, and to not get so hung up on the little disappointments in life.

Secondly, as you write the one item, the mental process of deciding which one to commit to paper or your electronic log takes on more importance because it’s this one item that’s made it way to the top. Try it for the next two weeks and then stretch it out for another two weeks. The impact that thankfulness and gratitude can have on your life is among the best investments you can make in yourself. You won’t know until you try!
