Got Attitude? Get Gratitude!

The most effective thing you can do to drastically change your life for the better on ALL fronts is so simple & inexpensive (IT'S FREE) that most people don't stop to try it.
Rather than throw money at the problem - which only puts a temporary patch there, cultivate an attitude.
Simply picj up a journal, a note book , a  pad of paper, a piece of paper or open a new Word doc on your computer.

Five days a week (you can even take weekends off !!)  note 3 things that made you happy that day
It can be in the form of a 3 word bullet point, a paragraph, a doodle, a  sketch - however you flow just foolow what comes naturally to you.
One catch  - it  can't   have cost you any money.
Do this faithfully daily for three weeks without reviewing it.  
Be sure you do it every day -record it,  Don't save it up & do it a few days at a time.
After  weeks you can look back on what you've done.
15 days - 4 mins per day = 60 minutes - just one hour to transform your life  FREE!!
I `did it for 4 years!
TRY IT  You have absolutely nothing to lose and a brand new lease on life to gain.

Today I am thankful that I have my occupation.

The Optimist:
There is a story of identical twins. One was a hope-filled optimist. “Everything is coming up roses!” he would say. The other was a sad and hopeless pessimist. He thought that Murphy, as in Murphy’s Law, was an optimist. The worried parents of the boys brought them to the local psychologist.
He suggested to the parents a plan to balance the twins’ personalities. “On their next birthday, put them in separate rooms to open their gifts. Give the pessimist the best toys you can afford, and give the optimist a box of manure. “The parents followed these instructions and carefully observed the results.
When they peeked in on their pessimist, they heard him audibly complaining, “I don’t like the color of this computer….I’ll bet this calculator will break….I don’t like this game….I know someone who’s got a bigger car than this….”
Tiptoeing across the corridor, the parents peeked in and saw their little optimist gleefully throwing the manure up in the air. He was giggling. “You can’t fool me! Where there’s this much manure, there’s gotta be a pony!”  Author Unknown
