Count Your Blessings Before You Count Sheep

by Nov 30, 2017

With work and all of life’s other goings-on, it can be a challenge to count your blessings, especially after a long and difficult day at work. There’s negativity everywhere we look nowadays, and the added stress of our jobs and other demands in life can make even the best of us a bit cynical.

What a lot of us probably don’t realize is a big part of success, is making sure we take the time to count our blessings and remember how far we’ve come. It’s important to carve out time every day to think about what we all have to be grateful for, in order to give us the motivation and positivity to go further.

In her article, Monica Torres highlights how important this is, and she has the evidence to back it up. Some of the most successful business people to date practice this philosophy on a daily basis, such as Sheryl Sandburg, Arianna Huffington, and Oprah Winfrey. But why does it work and why is it so important, you may ask?

Reminding yourself to be thankful forces you to stay present and aware of the world around you instead of getting stuck on your failures and hiccups. It keeps you looking forward.

Torres hits the nail on the head. So, remember to remind yourself daily of what went right and focus less on what went wrong. This simple and rewarding practice will push you further than you may think it would.
