Day 212 – The Secret of Success

People have asked me, “What is the secret of success?”. And for some strange reason, I have an answer as if the secret has been ingrained in my head all my life. For I know what I have to do that will have a lasting effect on so many other lives. But the words to express how I precisely felt were not crystal clear until I came across these amazing words that I wanted to share:

The Secret of Success is: Gratitude

Gratitude leads to success. Gratitude turns fear into freedom, denial into acceptance and anger into love.

Gratitude generates positive energy, happiness and peace. Cicero, an ancient Roman philosopher and politician, said that “gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others.” Living with grace and gratitude leads to happiness and spiritual development. Thanks giving, grace and gratitude purify our hearts, sharpen our souls and attract abundance into our lives.

Given the pain and misery in the world around us, we should be deeply grateful for the suffering we have been spared. And, if we are thankful for the little things in life, our appreciation of the bigger things will be all the greater. Ungratefulness generates negative energy, contraction and suffering. It fuels greed, jealousy and mistrust. It creates an impoverished mind.

Exercise an attitude of gratitude. Say “thank you for life” everyday — and you will not need any other prayer. Awaken your potential, knowing that the power of gratitude is within you.

Affirmation: I am grateful for all I have

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