Be grateful. Welcome to the mini-series highlighting the Rules of Happiness, based on the book by entrepreneur and self-development leader, Karl Moore. After a difficult past month, I thought it would be good to focus on something more positive and uplifting. These simple rules yield valuable truths and life-changing power IF we take action on them.
Please note these links go to Moore’s book on Amazon, but are NOT affiliate links. I just thought I would provide the links for anyone who is interested. Note also what I’m sharing in these blog posts are just snippets from full chapters on each Rule of Happiness.
Yesterday we learned about Rule #1: Don’t Feel Sorry for Yourself. So today we will move on to…
Rule #2 – Be Grateful
“Think of all the wonderful things you have to be grateful for right now. It could be your family. Or your health. Maybe your home. Your friends. Your brain. Your heart. Your spirit.
We’ve all got amazing things in our own lives that make us smile with joy. And if we can count these blessings every day, we’ll discover a greater appreciation of the beautiful world we surround ourselves with.” –Karl Moore
“If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life
is thank you,
it will be enough.”
– Meister Eckhardt
I have noticed a difference in my overall attitude toward life ever since I began my nearly daily posting of an “Attitude of Gratitude” on Facebook in November 2013 or so. It definitely helps to focus on the positive by counting your blessings!
So what are YOUR thoughts?
Do you find it easy or difficult to practice an attitude of gratitude?
Do you count your blessings on a regular basis?
