Today, I came across the article: "The Power of Gratitude, 4 Ways to Develop an Attitude of Gratitude" and then: "Weight Loss can be a Team Effort, Build Your Own Support System".
This was speaking directly to me.
I have always been grateful for those who look out for me and help me. But, I do not seek out those that can help me reach specific goals with specific skills. That seemed to be taking advantage of others.
The second article talks about recruiting specific types of people to fill specific roles. The first article talks about recognizing the positive in our lives.
Robert Emmons and Michael McCullough are two of the leading American investigators of gratitude. They describe gratitude as personality strength—the ability to be keenly aware of the good things that happen to you and never take them for granted.
If people are willing to help, and with sincere gratitude, I am warming to the thought of seeking their help and support.
