    Be Thankful
    (Unknown)

    Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire,
    If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

    Be thankful when you don’t know something
    For it gives you the opportunity to learn.

    Be thankful for the difficult times.
    During those times you grow.

    Be thankful for your limitations
    Because they give you opportunities for improvement.

    Be thankful for each new challenge
    Because it will build your strength and character.

    Be thankful for your mistakes
    They will teach you valuable lessons.

    Be thankful when you’re tired and weary
    Because it means you’ve made a difference.

    It is easy to be thankful for the good things.
    A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are also thankful for the setbacks.

    GRATITUDE can turn a negative into a positive.
    Find a way to be thankful for your troubles and they can become your blessings.

    Even if the challenges are immense and the obstacles are many, step forward and live the life you choose to live. Your dreams are worth every effort.
    Even if you get knocked down again and again, get right back up and get going. With enough persistence, any goal is within your reach.
    Even if you can’t see all the way to the end of the road, go ahead and take the first step. Each time you make some progress, you’ll find new ways to make even more.
    Even if your results fall short of your expectations, keep making the effort. Each new day brings you more experience, wisdom and effectiveness.
    Even if you’ve been deeply disappointed in the past, focus on the positive possibilities. For your future is what you choose to make it now.

    "Many things are simply not going to happen with just one, or three, or even a dozen attempts. Yet anything becomes possible with enough persistence.
    Keep going, and allow your efforts to build upon one another. Keep going, and transform the disappointments into achievements.
    You have what it takes to keep going, because all it ever takes is just one more step forward.
    Keep going, and work your way steadily to the richest rewards you can imagine."
    -- Ralph Marston

    "The common conception is that motivation leads to action, but the reverse is true....action precedes motivation.
    You have to "prime the pump" and get the juice flowing, which motivates you to work on your goals.
    Getting momentum going is the most difficult part of the job, and often taking the first step is enough to prompt you to make the best of your day."
    -Robert McKain

    "How do you build up your bank account? By putting something in it everyday.
    Your health account is no different. What I do today, I am wearing tomorrow.
    If I put inferior foods in my body today, I'm going to be inferior tomorrow, it's that simple."
