Do it for yourself! | 9

Enjoy the things you already have
The problem with many of us is that we think we’ll be happy when we reach a certain level in life – a level we see others operating at – your boss with her corner office, that friend of a friend who owns a mansion on the beach, etc.  Unfortunately, it takes awhile before you get there, and when you get there you’ll likely have a new destination in mind.  You’ll end up spending your whole life working toward something new without ever stopping to enjoy the things you have now.  So take a quiet moment every morning when you first awake to appreciate where you are and what you already have.

It is said that gratitude for what we have is paving the way to get what we wish for, even if we don´t have it now. So instead of thinking negatively about the things that we still don´t have (which often becomes negative and creates a lack mentality) let´s feel grateful for what we do have today. And the rest will follow:)
