Why is Gratitude Important In Life?
Do you want to be happy?
I am confident that everyone reading this, which means you, want to be happy.
Yet, happiness can be elusive. Happiness can be difficult on an ongoing basis.
Sometimes we get frustrated when we do things for other people to “make them happy,” and we walk away with resentment.
I want to share with you a simple thought.
You are responsible for your happiness. You are not responsible for the happiness of others.
Happiness begins with gratitude (read my blog post on the science of gratitude here).
The Gratitude Challenge
There are 10-days until Thanksgiving, and I want you to join me on a 10-Day Gratitude Challenge.
I will be posting ten things I am grateful for on my Instagram Account (@terryportercoach). I want you to interact with the posts by sharing something you are grateful for. I am excited to hear and connect with you.
David Steindl-Rast, in his famous TED Talk shares that, “If you are grateful, you act out of a sense of enough (abundance) and not out of a sense of scarcity.”
