Give Thanks With A Grateful Heart


Are You Grateful or A Constant Complainer?

Why is it so hard for us to be grateful as human beings? Why is it so easy for us to complain about every little thing that we don't have? Because we see other people that have it? What if we didn't know they had it or we didn't see it, would we still complain about it?

These are questions I often think about when I am meditating and going through personal development. I know more and have watched people do more complaining than thanking thorughout my life. And gratitude is becoming a taboo word as time goes on. Even the little courtesies of saying "thank you" when getting a gift or receiving help makes people feel it is more a forced obligation than a show of appreciation.

Why is that?

Maybe it is Entitlement. Maybe it is Envy or Jealousy. No matter what it is, it takes a toll on you mentally and physically. Complaining about what you don't have or what you haven't accomplished breeds an air of negativity around you. This in turn, causes you to feel stressed and overwhelmed, which leads to nothing but mental and physical deterioration.

Being Grateful Is Not A Responsibility, It's A Mindset

Answer this question for yourself. What has complaining ever done for you? Where has it taken you? Maybe, when you were a toddler or adolescent, you could throw a temper tantrum and get what you want. But those days of being a spoiled brat are over. You are an adult with your own responsibilities, your own priorities. And no one is going to give you what you want or get you where you want to go, except YOU.

So STOP complaining and START doing...

Give Thanks With A Grateful Heart

Be grateful for what you have, the levels you have reached, the accomplishments you have achieved; big or small. Give thanks with a grateful heart, because there are millions worse off then you. The fact that you have a phone, tablet, or computer, with an internet connection that is allowing you to read this, is showing how grateful you should be.

Gratitude is not a feeling that can be forced and it shouldn't feel like it is a obligation on you. It is a mindset. Those who are ungrateful for what they have, their life and current state can learn to be grateful. With the right mindset training and habits of gratitude, you can reach new heights, in yourself, in your life, and in your work. You can learn to relieve that negative stress of the constant complaining. I have two suggestions:

  1. Get on our weekday "THINK AND GROW RICH" Mindest Training calls, every weekday morning at 9am
  2. Listen to the Inner Circle Audios whenever you like. They can be available to you 24/7, by going here.

Nobody wants to go through life complaining about what they don't have. That's misery. Instead of complaining, be grateful for what you do have and use it to do something that will get you to where you want to be.

The Impossible Is A Possible Project

All throughout life I have had naysayers, not-so well wishers, and of course the usual haters, who told me that things were impossible, that I can't do or accomplish certain tasks. I've heard, "You're not gone be sh!@", "you're just like your father", "you'll never be anything", etc, etc. And that was just during my childhood.

Of course it angered me and made me rebellious, but those words were like mantras. When you hear them over and over again, they have a way of embedding into your subconscious mind. And once it is in your subconscious, you are unconsciously unaware, that these words put actions in motion. 

When your mind is fed negativity day in and day out, you tend to start manifesting them into negative actions. This is what happened to me. These words of not being able to achieve things, and that accomplishing anything was impossible for me, started to manifest themselves in my actions. Grades dropping, getting in trouble in school, resorting to illegal means of money on the street, because I thought that was the only success someone like me could achieve. 

But I was WRONG, so wrong. And so were the people that fed this to me. 

Make The Impossible Possible

When Christopher Columbus wanted to sail across the world. Everyone thought that it was impossible, because the world is flat and he would drop off the edge. To us today, that sounds silly. But what we know today, sounded silly during that time. But Christopher Columbus refused to believe this and risked doing the impossible and proved them wrong.

Before there were airplanes, it was thought impossible for humans to fly, until Wilbur and Orville Wright came along.  At one time, it was thought blasphemous and heretical to think that the Earth revolved around the sun, until Copernicus, proved them wrong. 

Even in sports and olympics, world records are getting broken frequently, that people would always think were impossible to break. So do not limit yourself. If there is something that you want to do or accomplish that you feel is impossible, know that it is possible. With the right mindset, the proper education, and a step-by-step action plan, you can achieve anything. 

Make The Impossible A Possible Project

- Determine your goal and list a number of small steps that will lead up to you goal.

- Find and research those whom may have done what you are trying to do. Learn from them, take mentorship from them. In this way you can find out what works and what doesn't from anothers point of view.

- If no one has done what you want to do. Create a mantra or motivational board that you can repeat to yourself daily that pertains to achieving your goal. This will help push you, even at times it's hard to go.

- If you know what it is that you want to accomplish, and now you are inspired or have the motivation, you must act upon it, now. Any journey you take starts with that first step forward. One foot in front of the other, daily. The small, continuous daily actions you perform is a step closer to goal.

- We all fear doing something different; stepping out of our comfort zone. In order to do the impossible, you have to use those fears as a strengthener. To overcome your fears of failing, your fears of doing something different, will give you strength from where you never thought you had and become a driving force that will lead to accomplishing astonishing results.

- One you have reached your set goal, reward yourself, boast about it, share your success. Because you deserve it for the hardwork and determination of accomplishing an impossible achievement.

- Don't stop there! Once you realized that you have accomplished your impossiblity, the journey doesn't stop. Set a new goal, a bigger goal, following the same game plan. And you will soon realize that anything is possible.

- JUST TAKE ACTION! And the impossible will become a possible project

How Do You Define Genius?

When most people think of genius, what comes to mind is Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Da Vinci, Archimedes, and the like. But if I were to ask you to define what constitutes a genius, could you picture yourself in that category? 

If not - then, WHY NOT?

Is it because you have not scored an outrageous number on your SAT's or an IQ test? Because you haven't built some great invention or won the Nobel Peace Prize? If you think this is what constitutes a genius, then you are happily mistaken. Yes, I said HAPPILY...because we are all blessed with genius potential. The fact is that most of us are too conformed to even manifest this potential.

Genius Defined

Through the years of numerous encounters and experiences, I noticed something about the genius of people. That it is not within the intellectual capacity that it lies, but within the relentless efforts of bringing forth that creative, originality into fruition, by persistant, unwavering, progressive action, that produces value for themselves as well as others. 

I have been acquainted with a few people who I know to have scored 150 or above on an IQ test. But if I were to mention their names, you wouldn't even know who they are. Why? Despite the fact that they have the IQ of a genius, they still remain to live average lives, working average jobs, doing the same average routines, day after day. They have not acted upon this genius potential. So, although they can brag about a score on a test, they cannot attest to any genius acts.

So what is the difference between a genius and an average person? The genius, no matter how low their Intellectual Quotient, uses whatever intellectual capacity and creativity, by putting it into action, to benefit themselves and others. While the average person, no matter how high their Intellectual Quotient, confine their intellectual capacity and creativity, with contentment for being average as long as they can get by in life.

Define Your Genius

Let's look at Albert Einstein, who's name is synonymous with genius. His contributions to science and humanity, defines his genius. But what he is most well known for is his Theory of Relativity. And this theory was sparked as Einstein thought about a street car racing away from a clock tower at the speed of light, which would seem stopped because the light from the tower could not catch up to the street car even though the clock in the street car would still be ticking as normal.

Although this was a "Eureka" moment for Einstein, how was he going to manifest the evidence? How could he prove this theory? For years on end he pondered this, wrote numerous equations, sat for hours, days, weeks in his chair in constant thought and calulation. He played his violin rigorously, because it was a muse for him. He even went through a divorce, which he asked for from his wife, with the promise that WHEN, not if, he gets the Nobel Peace Prize, he will split the reward with her. 

Through years of failed calculations and obstacles, such as war, deterring his progress, he never wavered, never surrendered, never gave up. And within a span of 10 years he finally concluded his equation of General Relativity. 

It was not his "Eureka" moment that defined his genius, but his tireless efforts through all misfortune and setbacks, to reach his point of success by proving his theory for the betterment of science and mankind.  

This brings new light to genius, which is not a single spark, but what burns from that spark. We all have those moments of genius sparks, those "AHA" moments, but to actually constitute genius, you must manifest it's success with persistant action.

(Video) Declaration Of Conformity


Declaration Of Conformity

We have all taken this declaration. Well, those who are content with being average, living average lives, and getting average results. But what does that say about us? Hasn't there always been something that you have been good at or something that you thought you had a purpose for? So what is holding you back from your purpose, your reason for being? Well, I have an idea. It is conformity.

Most of us get by in life settling to what our culture, our peers, our society considers is the norm. We wake up, eat breakfast, go to work (9-5), come home, eat dinner with the family, watch TV, go to sleep, then do it all over again day-after-day, like programmed machines. This is due to the fact that this is considered what life consists of; working for a undervalued check every week, just to pay off the necessities to keep us afloat. And if we want to take advantage of the luxuries of life, we have to work countless hours and weekends, till we are too exhausted to even enjoy them.

Tell me if I'm wrong, because this sounds like the life of the average Joe. 

Declaration of Conformity

We have declared that this is what life is. This was instilled in us from our parents, our teachers, our role models. But step back, and think. Take a look at how they have struggled during your time growing up scrimping and scraping. All that they can teach you is only what they know. And because you have taken this in during the development stages of your life, you have conformed to this as being the norm; this is what life is, and you have accepted it. 

Declaration Of ConformityWhat if William Gates or Warren Buffet or Richard Branson would have accepted this conformity? Do you think they would still be the eccentric billionaires they are today? Even if they were born with a silver spoon in their mouth, they were taught that success comes to the one who thinks further than the average person. The one who takes bigger chances and removes fear of failure.

But alot of successful people have come from nothing. Fear of failing is not even a thought. How can you fear losing what you did not have in the first place. While most people sit stagnant saying "Whoa is me", those who want and gain success, say, "Why not me?" Because they know their value, they know their worth, they know what they have to offer. So what do you have to offer?

Declaration of Conformity

Don't declare conformity because it only hinders you from what you are capable of accomplishing. Do you really believe that your worth is that fixed check at the end of the week? Do you really believe that your family is worth the money that you get weekly to pay the bills every month? Do you really believe that you are exempt from all of the luxuries in life, unless you break your back working numerous hours to the point of exhaustion where you can't even enjoy them?

If so, continue to live your average life, with your average job, getting the average pay. Otherwise, break this declaration of conformity and go outside of yourself, outside of the box, and break the norm. You are worth more than you think, and your value is exponential. You have much more to offer than what you have conformed to. 

"Comformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth
