Simple Wisdom Tip #113: Count Your Blessings

In recent days, I’ve seen more authors dispelling the myth that you have to work hard and become successful, then you will be happy.  It’s exactly the opposite:  become happy and then you’ll be more likely to be successful.  How do I do that?  Well, one way is to count your blessings.  Thank God that you can walk (some of us are in wheelchairs), talk (some are mute), see (some are blind), think, work, pray, love, have friends and family who care for us.  Please don’t take these things for granted.  They aren’t necessarily forever.


Here is a one minute exercise:  write down at least five things you are grateful for.  Just doing that will make you feel happier.
