Tycoonism “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”

May 14, 2009

This is so ironic…

In this day and age of media meltdown… everything is online… that can be good news, bad news… Or success stories or stories about loss and falling… everything had to be splashed on papers and tv. Is it still possible to show and celebrate gratitude quietly? Don’t turn gratitude into a promotional or motivational tool. Too much thanks is as ineffective as too little. Instead, express your thanks in quiet ways: a thought, a prayer, a one-on-one word, a note of appreciation. Give people gifts of thanks that aren’t bought at shops: a bit of your time, a sacrifice, something valuable to you. Remember the story in the Bible of the widow, who gave a small money gift in thanks even though it was worth everything to her.

Instead live life with gratitude. There’s nothing complicated about gratitude. It’s something we can all do. We so often don’t do it because we forget, because we focus on the few so-called bad things in our lives, and because we take the wonderful things for granted. So change your life. Put gratitude just below your level of consciousness, and every day will become one of joy and delight.
