Be grateful for today

Every new day is a chance to celebrate your very precious life. When we wake up each day we have a choice to either focus on what is or what isn’t. When we stop being a victim to what isn’t and start being grateful for all that is — life gets a whole lot better. I promise! Being grateful is the first step to keeping what you want to keep in your life. If we focus on what we have at the start of each day, it has an enormously positive impact on our day ahead. The trick is to begin each day spending a few minutes giving gratitude within minutes after you wake — while you are still lying in bed. Find several things to be grateful for.

Dreamers

Everyone wishes their dreams would come true. Everyone wishes to have as much as possible and for his or her life to improve. Dreamers imagine what it would be like to live the life they want. We all have a lot in common. We basically want similar things from our lives: peace of mind, good health, meaningful and loving relationships, recognition for what we do, and financial freedom so we can have more choices. But this is where the similarity stops. People then divide into two groups: 1. Wishing: People who remain wishing without taking responsibility and action. These are the dreamers. 2. Having: People who take responsibility to make their wishes come true. The Wishing group says: • I wish my life were different. • I wish I had more time and energy to make that happen. • I wish I had the courage to make the move. • I was always going to do that. • One day I’ll get around to doing that. The Having group says: • I’ve made a decision to take responsibility for my life. • I’m clear about the direction I am going in. • I make quality choices on a daily basis….
