be defined as a grateful
Heart and peaceful mind
Ever think you need a get rich quick scheme? Well here’s one for you that you can activate immediately: Be grateful. Yes, it’s that simple. You’re breathing right? Then why not be grateful for the prosperity and blessings you already have. You’re obviously reading this post. Be grateful for your eyesight and your ability to read and comprehend. Be grateful you’re in your right mind. Are you enjoying a reasonable amount of health and strength? Then be grateful. Do you have heat when it’s cold outside? Air conditioning or a trusty fan when it’s hot? Then be grateful. Do you have clothes to wear? Enough food to eat? A safe place to sleep? Be grateful. Have you answered “yes” to most of these questions? Then you are already wealthy beyond measure.
If you have friends, family, income, meaningful work and creativity on top of all of the essentials for living, you are reaping a huge dose of wealth that deserves to be acknowledged on a daily basis. I am sure you get my point by now. Success and abundance can’t always be measured by how much material wealth you have accumulated. Please don’t misunderstand me. I don’t have any problem with folks “getting paid” (myself included). I do, however, think it is wise to pause and appreciate those things in life that can’t necessarily be equated with dollars and cents. Make sense?
What are some of the blessings you are grateful for that make your life “rich?”
