Gratitude…The Secret Ingredient of Happiness?

In a recent article, True Secret to Success (It’s Not What You Think) from the INC. Website,  author Geoffrey James shows the importance of gratitude in the pursuit of  Happiness and Success.

The premise of his article is that if you want to be successful, this is commensurate with the amount of gratitude in your life.  Also highlighted are his recommendations for ‘mining’ gratitude, as he visualizes gratitude as a muscle and that we need to exercise this muscle to attain success.

Here are some quotes from Geoffrey James’ article:

The more you use it (gratitude), the stronger and more resilient it becomes….By contrast, people who lack gratitude are never truly happy

The best time to exercise gratitude is just before bed. Take out your tablet (electronic or otherwise) and record the events of the day that created positive emotions, either in you or in those around you

‘What you’re doing is “programming your brain” to view your day more positively.’

I highly enjoyed this article and look forward to flexing my newly found muscle!

Here is the link to the complete article.
