Motivational Monday #156

This is pretty cool video about a study scientists did on what makes people happy.

We’ve all heard the saying, “have an attitude of gratitude” but with this new study, it gives that saying a whole new driving force to pursue that attitude of gratitude.

Sometimes in life, we get so caught up in chasing our dreams and building our goals we disconnect from the depth of the things that we are truly grateful for.

There are always 2 perspectives we can take on life, why it’s great or why it sucks.

And regardless of which perspective you take, there is gratitude to be found on either side.

But the key here is not so much to just be grateful but to express that gratitude.

That’s when gratitude really has the power to change your life.

Take a minute today and every day to give you kids an extra long hug, write your wife, girlfriend, husband or boyfriend an authentic letter telling them everything you love about them.

Pick a random friend who has influenced you who you’ve shared some laughs with and give them a call or send a text telling telling them they added value to your life.

Take a couple seconds and let the guy at the store who helps you know that he saved you time and frustration by helping you and that you appreciate it.

It doesn’t have to be huge or even with a person you have a close relationship with.

The world is full of people and interaction with others always provides an opportunity to cultivate an attitude of gratitude. Our jobs is to express that grated and let be known.

Show your gratitude and it will not only make them feel good and increase their happiness but it will a positive impact in your life.
