Success Habit - Every Day is Thanksgiving

I lead a charmed life.

Today is Thanksgiving in the US. This is a great day to count our blessings. One trait I have seen in successful people is they are always grateful. This is often called "have an attitude of gratitude".

Anyone who is reading this has many reasons to be grateful. Obviously they can read (in countries like Afganistan, it is only 28%). They can read English. They know how to use a computer and have access to one. These simple things are already way beyond simple food and shelter which are challenges for so much of the world population.

A few tricks on implementing this Success Habit:

1 - Keep a separate section in a journal with a list of all you have to be grateful for.

2 - Set a time each week to go through this list.

3 - Help someone or some group less fortunate than you. Nothing drives home how lucky I am more than helping someone who is disadvantaged or challenged. And it feels good.

4 - Have mantras that remind us how fortunate we are. I often say "I lead a charmed life".
