Pleasant greetings. This is Gift Tarupiwa and it’s my trust that you’re doing well. Through sharing the learning I get from my experience in life, I am committed to inspiring you into becoming the best version of yourself.
Though discontent is linked to not having enough or as much as desired, having more than enough doesn’t necessarily make one grateful. It’s because of failing to understand this that many people spend their entire lives seeking to accumulate more things in a bid to become content. Unfortunately, such efforts do not produce the desired results. The more we have, the more our desire to have more grows. What then can make us grateful? Is it beyond our reach to be content with what we have as we work towards having what we don’t?
Well, fortunately, gratitude is an attitude anyone can develop. With the aid of this writing, I am going to share the key to being grateful in life parallel to not settling for less. The development of gratitude begins with understanding that having what you have is a privilege others don’t have. The very life you may be unsatisfied with is someone else’s dream life. For example, you could be having a less paying job and being discontented with it. Such a situation is understandable and your state of being is justifiable.
Because our lives revolve around meeting our various financial needs, being in a position of having less money to spend naturally makes one disgruntled. Notwithstanding this fact, it’s verily possible to be grateful in a situation like that. Instead of focusing on the insufficient salary you are getting from your job, take time to step into the worlds of those who don’t have even a less paying job to complain about. Looking at your situation from their positions will open your eyes to countless reasons to be grateful for.
Our levels of gratitude are largely determined by our upbringing. For those born to well up parents who gave them a decent or luxurious life, facing a situation of not having enough will drive them into great frustration. On the other hand, for those who come from poor backgrounds, not having enough doesn’t seem to rob their precious joy and peace. As long as they have something, they see that as a reason enough to be grateful. Ironically, people who have more tend to be discontented in life while those with less are grateful and happy with their lives.
What is the underlying cause of this? Well, as. I articulated earlier, gratitude is primarily a perspective based attitude. It’s never about how much you have, but how you look at what you have. No matter your position in life, there’s always someone wishing to be in your shoes, even just for one day. Let this inspire you to always be grateful for your life and patiently work on improving it. When you grow to be grateful, you will stay positive in any given situation at the same time being able to see opportunities beyond others’ view.
Well, I trust this information is a push-forward inspiration that has left you a step further on your journey to the farthest point of self-development and actualization.
