Be Around People That Model Gratitude

. at . Leave a comment

On this 9th day of Thanks Living, I am choosing to be around folks who are grateful.

We are influenced by our environment – by what we read, watch, and listen to. And of course, that influence is extended to the people who surround us. We become like each other in our habits, patterns of speech, and ideas especially regarding what’s acceptable behavior.

Jim Rohn, a motivational speaker, said, “You’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” That is either a scary thought or a wonderful thought.

I want my inner circle to be full of folks who are gratitude generators. That way, we spur each other on to do this even when life is hard. I don’t want to be given a pass on expressing thanks just because there are dark times.

I’m not saying I am grateful for the awful in my life. But there are things I can be grateful for.

·       God will never leave nor forsake me no matter what the circumstances look like.

·       There are people I can call upon for prayer, help, or a listening ear.

·       This is a season in my life.

Your Turn …

·       What do you think about the Jim Rohn’s quote?

·       Do the five people you are closest to model the types of behaviors you want to emulate?

·       What action step will you take this week?
