People often ask me what were the biggest surprises I had when interviewing successful women. This is definitely one.
I never expected how many told me they were actually grateful for past tribulations.
In fact, most admitted, they might never have succeeded had they not been challenged. They considered their past problems an asset and, even more, they appreciated themselves for tackling them head on.
The power of gratitude derives from a universal law: you draw to yourself that which you dwell on.
If you complain about all the difficulties you encounter and stuff going wrong, don’t be surprised if everything does.
What if instead you made a deliberate effort, when life hands you lemons, to find the blessings in the batch of bitter fruit? Imagine how your attitudes would change, and your reality with it.
If you appreciate what you have, you cannot, at the same time, resent what you don’t. A simple thank you turns your attention from problems to possibilities.
