Gratitude is defined as "the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness"
We live in a world that has programmed us to observe and focus on internal and external negativity. The more we focus on the challenges, difficulties, and fears, the more energy builds around it; like a boomerang, we continue to receive more of the same.
I challenge you to practice positive psychology with the above tool. Schedule time to practice gratitude until it becomes a natural part of your day. Pay attention to how your "luck" begins to turn around and how your eagerness to help others increases. You may find you have more to be grateful for than you realized!
