“I regret that I have no shoes until I saw a man without a feet”.
“Appreciate what you have, rather than feeling sorry for yourself.”

We are going to discuss many distinctive characteristics of successful leaders at the leadership course in DiscoveryLand Camp this year. Appreciation of what you already have is known as one of the keys to success. Indeed, life is a lot easier and more enjoyable with a positive attitude.

Robin Sharma- the author of The Leader Who Had No Title- in his recent video suggested that “Writing in a journal is a great way to record gratitude“. By doing that, you highlight and focus on your blessings, the good things in your life, in your mindset. In simple words…

Most of us have food on our table. Most of us have fresh drinking water. Most of us can breathe fresh oxygen. Most of us have people we love. Most of that us have work that matters. Most of us have all these incredible blessings that most people would never imagine having.

And yet we curse the fact that there’s too much traffic. We get upset about a difficult conversation with a hard customer. We stumble as we move towards closer our goals or our mission, and we get frustrated. And to make little things into big things and we start developing this mindset where little problems become problems. And as you know, a problem is only a problem if you choose to see it as a problem.

And what I’m suggesting to you is recording gratitude in your journal. Shift your mindset so you start to see things you didn’t notice around you. And everything becomes a miracle. And even this day becomes a blessing.

~Robin Sharma, How to Keep a Journal
