Being grateful for what you have, however small, will make you feel content. This energy will roll over to other areas of your life, bringing more into your life.
Focusing solely on what you don’t have, can bring about a feeling of deprivation and negativity. Some may argue that if you don’t shoot for what you want, you will never get it.
Appreciating what you have does not mean not setting goals. From the positive energy of gratitude for what you have, you can set lofty goals. However, if you fail to acknowledge what you have, you are fostering a scarcity mindset attracting further deprivation.
