Get the Free Recap & Marketing Mastery e-Zine

I am extremely grateful for being born in a free country. I get to vote for the person I wish to have as my government representative. Nobody dictates to me what I have to think or do. I choose the work I wish to perform. I have sufficient food to eat and safe water to drink. I get to walk down the street without fear of stepping on a landmine. I have a home of my own that keeps me warm in winter and cool in summer. If I want to engage in sporting activities they are available for me. If I pay my bills on time I have satellite television, Internet and phone service. I can pursue the religion of my choice. I can live anywhere in the country I choose and know that I have medical coverage.

If I choose to, I can complain about the weather, the condition of the streets, the politicians and anything I feel vocal about and no one will arrest me or put me in jail. If things do not go well for me, there is social assistance and in my old age there is social security.

With all of the things to be grateful for, I cannot understand why anyone in a free country like mine would give up their dreams and settle for anything less than a perfect life. When you start out with such an advantage, how can you fail? Actually, it is quite easy, all you have to do is get your thought processes mixed up. You are what you think. If you think you can, you are right. If you think you can’t, you are right.

If your life does not contain everything you want it to, then examine your thoughts. Are you focussed on the things you want, or are you focussed on the things you don’t want. If you focus on what you don’t want, your thoughts become so obsessed with what you are focussed on that they cause it to happen. You must stop thinking about what you don’t want and focus on what you do want. Always keep your thoughts positive and focussed on your dreams and goals. It has been scientifically proven that if you set a goal, become very passionate about reaching the goal and constantly think about it, that your mind will come up with a way to reach that goal.

Be grateful for what you have as it will improve your disposition, which will impact your thoughts. It is impossible to be grateful for what you have and pessimistic at the same time. So, any time you start losing your positive thoughts, think about things you are grateful for and you will get your positive attitude back.

The world needs you to be the best that you possibly can. You have a greatness inside of you that must be unleashed for the betterment of mankind. The world needs to be grateful to you!
