The Good Things in Life

Let's celebrate Thanksgiving today. Well, not just today, but every day. You need not wait for the third Thursday in November to be thankful for the good things in life. Scientifically, it has been proven that being thankful will change your life for the better.

Thought Magnets

Stop looking at the negative side of every day. Thoughts are like magnets in the brain where negative thoughts attract negative outcomes, while positive thoughts attract positive outcomes. Even if one outcome is not exactly what you wanted or expected, you at least do not experience the negative event until it happens.

Do Not Be a Coward

One of my favorite Shakespearean quotes is, "A coward dies a thousand times before his death, but the valiant taste of death but once." When you are worried about something, the worry dominates your mind and casts a shadow on everything in your life. The word worry comes from an Anglo-Saxon derivative that means to strangle. Not a good picture. How many times have you spent hours or days worrying about a negative outcome only to find that it never materializes? You died a thousand times before the outcome, and you did not have to agonize over the results.

Sleep Better

If you want to sleep better at night, instead of counting sheep, count your blessings. The fact that you have a bed to sleep in is a blessing when you think of the many people who sleep on the streets at night. And if you are reading this, and you are one of those less fortunate individuals who is experiencing tough times, take positive action to get out of your present circumstances.

The Best of the Best

We are blessed to live in the greatest country in the history of civilization. Just visit a third world country today, and I guarantee that when you come back home, you will kiss the ground of this beloved country. Familiarity builds familiarity. It is disconcerting to listen to televised interviews of people on the street in America. They do not realize what they are saying. They do not understand that even in the act of criticizing our country, they can be grateful for that freedom. Many Americans have died to give them that privilege. In some countries, they would be imprisoned or worse.

New Day - New Attitude

Take the time to write down all the reasons you need to be thankful. Repeat that exercise every night before you go to bed, and you will not only sleep better, but you will awake every morning with a new attitude for the coming day.
