The Attitude of Gratitude

The late Dr. Norman Vincent Peale once said, “Once of the great principles of life is that of thanksgiving. Not only is giving thanks a recognition of past benefits, it is the activator of blessings yet to come.” What a great thought!

In these trying economic times it is easy to get distracted by everything that we believe is wrong or unjust. But when we pause, take stock of the blessings that we have, it can change our outlook. Great leaders are thankful leaders.

How about you? What are you thankful for? What blessings are you enjoying right now? It’s time to give thanks!
