Gratitude is easily the most overlooked aspect of our every day lives. For me, I am incredibly grateful for my lovely wife. I fill out my SELF Journal in the am and pm (3 things that you’re grateful for...) and my wife is the 1 thing that is always consistent.
Don’t ever forget about the people and situations that have helped you along your journey. They are a key contributing factor for you and your success. So ask yourself this question: Where/How am I allocating my gratitude?
It doesn’t matter how much money you make, how many friends you have, or how much material possessions that you accumulate throughout your life because once you’re gone – it all goes back in the box. Therefore, success is not about what you have, it’s about what you do with what you have. We’re all created from the same thing; some people just have the ability to see the bigger picture.
The reason you’re not at your goal right now is because you’re too busy worrying about what other people are doing, what they’ve accomplished, and where they’re going in life. In the meantime, you are wasting valuable time that you could be allocating towards yourself.
What you don’t realize is that these people that you’re focused on are no different than you. They still require food, water, adequate sleep, they experience emotions, they have the capacity to love as well as the capacity to dislike others; they are exactly like you. The only difference, they’re not worried about you.
Your success will be determined by your focus. Are you ready to reach your destiny?
