Gratitude makes many bad emotions impossible to be sustained. Given that we recognize what gratitude is and how it is acquired.

Have you ever told anyone you know that you are grateful for how he behaved toward you?

Probably you thanked a stranger who came forward to aid you in your time of distress, without you demanding help. Or most probably, you avoided uttering any thanks, as if it is normal to rescue a fellow man?

Maybe if you get the habit of voicing gratitude to nature surrounding you, for waking up healthy and cheerful, of welcoming a gorgeous day, of encountering a smiling fellow on the street, of hearing a “good morning” as you pass by hurriedly…

Maybe this habit will catch up and become a trend to say “thank you” to other fellow men, and even offer details on how you are grateful to the person and learn to extend compliments that are frank and deserving.

The 7 impossibilities of gratitude.

#1. Worry.

You can’t worry and be grateful in the same moment. Don’t worry about overcoming worry. Just notice and acknowledge benefit or advantage every day.

#2. Complaining.

You can’t complain and practice gratitude with the same breath.

Tip: Breathe in deeply and breathe out ‘thank you’ like a silent meditation.

#3. Anger.

You can’t be grateful and angry at the same time. The next time you see red, look around for something to be grateful for.

#4. Bitterness.

You can’t be bitter and grateful at the same time. How have painful relationships expanded your ability to contribute?

#5. Hate.

Hate can’t co-habit with healthy gratitude. (Gratitude can be unhealthy.)

If you hate your job, team, or boss, find something in each to be grateful for. Maybe you’re grateful your boss is out of town.

#6. Helplessness.

Helplessness runs horrified from gratitude: Gratitude in turbulence is power.

#7. Pessimism.

Pessimism cowers before gratitude.

I dare you to be pessimistic in the same moment you’re practicing gratitude.

Michael J. Fox on optimism, gratitude, and misery:

“Optimism is really rooted in gratitude,” Fox said. “Optimism is sustainable when you keep coming back to gratitude, and what follows from that is acceptance.

Accepting that this thing has happened, and you accept it for what it is. It doesn’t mean that you can’t endeavor to change. … Then see how much the rest of your life you have to thrive in, and then you can move on.” Michael Fox

Misery.

“I discovered that it was (misery) that I wasn’t recognizing the people around me and what they were doing and how they were behaving toward me and each other. And how grateful I was for them and how grateful they were for me. And it just opened my eyes.” Michael Fox

Does the Future has a Path?

Has the Path to your Future been a surprise to you so far?

Do you have this feeling that, as you resolve a problem, you were necessarily focusing on something that already happened?

Do you feel that a real problem necessarily must draw you into the past?

How can anything be fixed or resolved, if the past was not the catalyst or the cause for actively trying to improve anything?

Can you create anything new if the process is not generated from an already older known process?

What you are seeing of stars in the sky are objects that happened thousand of years ago: The time for the light to reach your eyes…

When you hear a thunder ball, bomb, a canon ball or a military jet, consider yourself lucky: The missile has already hit its target…

Invest 10,000 hours on a talent when still a youth and you’ll secure a good paying job for life, no matter what is the economic downturn.

In particular periods, you may become a famous millionaire, putting your talent to good use…

Other skills do not require you to start young, but the investment in time is higher than 10,000 hours on a continuous basis without lengthy breaks…

If you are past a certain age, with diminishing memory capabilities, poor eye sight… the odds for acquiring higher educational degrees or expertise in a new field… are extremely low.

Is it already a problem as we prevent problems?

They say: “Teams never win if defense is all they play. Organizational success is about doing not preventing”.

They say: “Fixing and preventing are necessary components of leadership. Sadly, fixing and preventing dominate organizations because it’s useful, measurable, and necessary…”

They say: “Leadership always has trajectory. You move forward or backward but never stay the same. Standing still is a fantasy for those oblivious to decline…”

And what gratitude has to do with the past and the future?

Anger, fear, frustration, disappointment, even resentment are part of leadership. But the path to the future is paved with gratitude.

Gratitude frees you to create your future.

Gratitude energizes leaders and organizations to release the past and create the future.

Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others,Cicero.

“I’ve walked the dingy path of ungratefulness that springs from arrogance and revenge. It’s a black-hole dragging you inward, downward, and backward”.

Benigni says, “It’s a sign of mediocrity when you demonstrate gratitude with moderation.” Express gratitude aggressively

Here what mimo has to say:

Day 30~ December 30th~ Guilin

future unknownfuture unknown~ children~ Long Ji

One of the most stark truths about the future is that it remains unknown until the moment when it happens.

We project, we plan, we dream, we wish, and almost always we are surprised by what unfolds.

If it is the past that holds sway on our emotions, then it is the future that triggers our imagination and creativity,

And the now is the bridge we build to take us into the great unknown.

A new year unfolds, and so do many contemplation in my mind …

Your future begins when you own your past.

Dan Rockwell listed 6 ways to find your future:

  1. The unknown has more potential than the known. Everyone who pretends they know when they don’t, repeats the past.
  2. Reject past methods and strategies. In a turbulent world, methods that become moral imperatives destroy new futures.
  3. Build new relationships. Your future is about people not projects or accomplishments. Current relationships maintain stability; new relationships disrupt and extend. Treasure both.
  4. Embrace social media. Meet people succeeding where you wish to succeed.
  5. Overcome timidity. 70% to 80% certainty is enough.
  6. Systematically build the future alongside the old present. Once your future is strong enough, release the old and embrace the new.
