Happy Thanksgiving! This is one of the most important holidays... Because gratitude is the highest form of love. It is the greatest testament to true FAITH. Only a faithful person can find gratitude in all things or even most things! Most people find what is wrong or lacking in most things and situations (like elections!). Faithful people knowing the war has already been won give thanks in all things! It takes courage to smile and give thanks!
Gratitude is the real game changer! It turns everything into gold. It turns poverty into massive wealth instantly. Take your most challenging situations and look for the reasons to be grateful for them... these immediately become your greatest assets! A tough situation becomes a SETUP FOR SUCCESS!
Train your gratitude muscle! Do this enough and you will soon begin to automatically see the gratitude in everything! Keep at it! It is no different than the gym. You know it is working when you start to give thanks for your struggles!
Want to set up the greatest victory in your life? Look for that moment... your worst moments.... when you are broke, alone 1,000+ miles from home, forsaken by your closest love, living in your pickup truck, jobless, with no relief in sight.... THEN GIVE THANKS FOR THE STRUGGLE! IN THAT MOMENT YOU DEFEAT THE ENEMY AND ENTER THE WARRIOR CLASS!
Give thanks and never be the same again!
