Gratitude. It’s a good sounding word. [ Gra-ti-tude, n The state of being grateful; thankfulness.] Hence it’s an Attitude.
No matter what sort of day we have. No matter if we have the worst possible day we could ever have. We always have some to be grateful for.
You might be thinking, really? It is very true though because gratitude is most easily seen through comparison. It doesn’t take very long to find someone who has had a worse day than you. Just look at the NZ Herald website. The front page is always filled with tales of woe and gore.
I take a few minutes every night to be thankful for that day. I’ve done this for a long time now and it’s a fun part of my day because it always makes me smile. Combined with jotting down notes from the day in my journal I believe this has made it a lot easier for me to sleep. My mind doesn’t have to go over everything and keep me awake.
The three terms Napoleon Hill says to use to show your gratitude are; Thank you, I’m grateful, and I appreciate.
Use those a lot and you might even find your Attitude of Gratitude infects those around you with interesting results. Another Experiment to try.
Have a great week and thank you for reading today’s MondayMotivator. I appreciate the courtesy of your time.
