Coach’s Challenge for November 29, 2004
Good morning Team,
The coach’s challenge for this week is to feel gratitude. With the experience of Thanksgiving just behind us and the coming of Christmas in a few weeks, it’s an opportune time to feel grateful for all that we have.
Feeling abundant is a state of mind. Each of us is given what we need in so many ways. We live in the richest country in the world and we have so many choices based on the world that’s been created around us. We know this is not the case for many people who live on the Earth. It’s important for us to take the time to appreciate all that we have so that our state of appreciation increases. It’s also important for those who are less fortunate so that our appreciation and abundance is accessible to them.
“Two kinds of gratitude: The sudden kind we feel for what we take; the larger kind we feel for what we give.” Edwin Arlington Robinson
We also see that when we are grateful, we are not jealous or envious. We see that when we feel secure, important and appreciated, it is not necessary for us to whittle others down in order to seem bigger by comparison. True appreciation for your self is at the heart of gratitude. The more you appreciate your true nature the greater your abundance grows.
Have a great week!
