The song about counting your blessings was so popular because everyone can do it. If you live in America, you have blessings that the people of most of the world can only dream about.

The late President John F. Kennedy expressed a great truth in one of his campaign speeches: "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country." Too many feel the world owes them a living and they are out to get all they can.

The truth is that each person owes their family and community whatever; they have the ability to give. Earning a good living serves our family, and the money spent helps the community. Being active in church and other organizations contributes to the well being of the city you live in.Some are so grateful to live in a country of freedom and opportunity that they can't do enough for their country and other people. Since millions of immigrants are grateful for the American dream, we should be grateful we already have it.

When it comes down to basics, gratitude for God, your family, your job, and knowing that you are appreciated, is a great motivating force in your life. There is no fun in working because we have to. It is such a joy to serve our employer or manage our own business because we are grateful for the opportunity. Be grateful for what you have. It may not be fancy but it is yours. Thousands of people in other countries are starving and they don't even have a roof over their heads or a bed to sleep in.

One of the greatest things to be grateful for is your own self worth. The realization that you are a valuable asset to your family and community lifts your spirits and makes life worth living. Your creator designed you for a purpose.

The sooner you find your true purpose the sooner you will find fulfillment.A business consultant once stated the fact that the biggest need working people have is to be appreciated.

Being thankful for your parents and your good health will lift your spirits.Are you baffled by a difficult problem? Remember for every problem there is an opportunity.

The doctor earns a living solving other people's health problems etc. The person that can solve difficult problems is in big demand. Don't hate problems.
