Life’s Riches



“Plant seeds of happiness, hope, success, and love; it will all come back to you in abundance. This is the law of nature.”
Steve Maraboli

Taking things for granted is one of the greatest assaults on the quality of our lives. When we take things for granted we never get to see the size of the gifts that are constantly being placed in front of us. As a result we feel only scarcity, there is not enough, rather than abundance.

You may be asking ‘What am I talking about? The world is a mess’. Yes the world is a mess, the economy is struggling and parts of the world are in civil unrest or War. Despite these facts there is so much to be grateful for, the riches of the world surround us, yet we do not see them.

We can not see them because we are creatures of habit. The present habit of society is to focus on what is terrible in life, just watch the TV News or read the Newspaper, we are bombarded with bad news, and we ignore what is wonderful. If we change our focus onto the wonderful things, think of it as ‘Life is a banquet and most idiots are starving’!

What we focus on, we’ll see in our world. Make a habit of appreciating something for a few minutes each day.The inclusion of the words ‘THANK YOU‘ in our vocabulary sets up an interesting paradox. Each time we say thank you, we are acknowledging a gift we were given. If we use thank you often enough, any poverty thinking disappears.

I believe that as our awareness of the riches available to us in our every day life increases, our life becomes lighter, happier and more joyous!

Our joy, happiness and satisfaction depends on what we pay attention to……’
