Be Motivated Series: Got to be Grateful by LaShawn Sithole

Welcome back to the Be Motivated Series. 

Today’s focus is Gratitude. I think this one may be my favorite so far. In fact, doing a series on gratitude just may be in order.

Today’s Quotes for Consideration:
“Always be joyful. Always keep on praying. No matter what happens, always be thankful, for this is God’s Will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.”  
~1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 

“He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.” 
~ Epictetus

“Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.” 
~William Arthur Ward

It’s true gratitude pulls even more good your way. Try it. When you are having a challenging day with a person or a project, stop for a moment and write down a list of things you appreciate about that person or project. When you finish, pray, take a few deep breaths and read what you wrote. You should be able to move forward much easier than before.

The speaker today in “The Course in Mastery, Day 21” is John Alston. He does an excellent job at laying out a five point plan for living from an excerpt of his presentation “The Magic is You.” Don’t you just love the title of that?
