What Makes You Feel Grateful? - Issue #331

Listen now | Practicing gratitude is good for the recipient AND the giver. If you’re listening to this podcast or reading this newsletter, you definitely have some reasons to feel grateful.

But I don’t know you, so I can’t go much beyond those assumptions. I do too, but I sometimes forget how lucky I am and the many wonderful things I have in my life. I should feel gratitude every minute of every day, but instead, I frequently feel like I’m lacking. It’s ok to be ambitious, push yourself to achieve more extraordinary things, and want more out of your life and career.

It’s not healthy to dwell on what you don’t have and lose sight of how much you do have and how lucky you really are.
