But – if that’s where your “thanks” stops then you will never be as fulfilled, as happy, or as successful as you could be. This level of “thanks” becomes a sign of complacency.
My work with the most successful, fulfilled, and happiest people shows that they are not satisfied to just be thankful for what they already have.
They go beyond that self-imposed limit of the status-quo to a place of truly giving thanks.
They are thankful for what they don’t have – – but want to have.
They are thankful for the better health they want to have – but don’t have yet.
They are thankful for the job they want – but they don’t have yet.
They are thankful for the relationship they want to have with their spouse – but they don’t have yet.
They are thankful for the income they want to have – but don’t have yet.
They are thankful for the great vacations they want to take – but they haven’t taken yet.
Olympic athletes are thankful for the gold medals they want to win – but haven’t yet.
And so on.
Be thankful for the life you have yet to live and the breaths you have yet to take.
And this is the secret. When you are also thankful for what you really want but don’t have yet – – you have a reason to move forward in a manner that leads you to not only accept the blessings in your life – – but to also bless your own life.
And that’s a Thanks worth Giving!
