Count your joys instead of your woes; count your friends instead of your foes.
Have you ever noticed how many people often focus a good deal of their attention on the doom and gloom struggles we all endure on occasion rather than choosing to look on the brighter side of things? Instead of counting their blessings, enjoying all of the wonderful times and remarkable opportunities that life presents to us daily, why do so many invariably choose to zero in on lifes tough times and challenging moments?
Blinded by their ever present gloomy demeanor, it sometimes seems like these individuals are mystically drawn to the depressing, downbeat, pessimistic side of life. If you didnt any know better, youd swear that its almost as if theyre being pulled down and down by a powerful negatively charged magnet. Instead of seeing the best life has to offer, these people trudge through life with a scarcity mindset that restricts their vision and limits their futures as well. This is one mistake that you can and must avoid at all costs.
Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has plenty; not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.
Thankfully, we all have a lot more going for us than it sometimes appears. Yet, with blessings aplenty, far too many people still plod along holding tight to their scarcity state of mind. They dont see much good happening to them and not surprisingly, not much of anything ever happens in their lives. It never occurs to them that what they dont see is exactly what they dont get.
They fail to understand that their scarcity mindset is little more than a figment of their fertile imaginations. And as such, their limited vision can readily be converted into a much more positive not to mention much more productive unlimited way of thinking and acting. If they would only pull the plug on the scarcity channel and plug into their power packed potential, they would discover that there is more opportunity than once met their untrained eye.
Come to think of it, couldnt we all enhance the quality of our lives by changing the way we view life every day?
We should certainly count our blessings, but we should also make our blessings count.
Neil A. Maxwell
By tossing aside the scarcity point of view and openly embracing our many blessings, wouldnt we have a much better chance of making each day the kind of super charged, super exciting, super sensational day we long to live? No doubt about it! With the barriers torn down and the stumbling blocks swept away, absolutely nothing can keep us from making our dreams come alive.
Where scarcity once stood, persistently blocking your path and constantly putting a real damper on each and every day, a world literally bursting at the seams with overflowing abundance could unfold right before your eyes. And were not just talking about a little opportunity here and there mind you, but more riches than you could ever hope to handle. What a gorgeous sight to be sure! Instead of looking at what you dont have or supposedly cannot do, you could start counting the many blessings which have been given to you and, even more importantly, start making these blessings count.
The hardest arithmetic to master is that which enables us to count our blessings.
Oscar Wilde once said, What seems to us bitter trials are often blessings in disguise. BLESSINGS in disguise to be sure! After all, how many times have we allowed minor problems and trivial troubles to throw us off course and off balance when we could have instead taken these lemons and made lemonade? Rather than make the best of the situation at hand, how often have we tossed in the towel and given up way too soon? Way too many times!
When will we finally learn that what we see is what we get in life? By counting our blessings and then making these blessings count, we can quickly change a life of doing without into a miraculous life where nothing is out of our reach and nothing is beyond our capabilities.
Instead of looking back or looking behind, why not start looking ahead to a limitless future where anything and everything youve ever dreamed of doing, having or being is well within your reach? By habitually holding a picture perfect, crystal clear vision of where youre going and how you are going to get there a seemingly never ending stream of boundless opportunity is headed your direction.
The Bottom Line: When you count your blessings, there is one thing you can count on. And thats having a super spectacular life.
