Oprah Winfrey has it right! Which way is your ladder?

Oprah WinfreyOprah Winfrey said, “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”

I totally agree with her. Somehow when we concentrate our focus on what we don’t have it seems to make us feel worse about ourselves, dislike those who have, complain constantly, feel sorry for ourselves and just plain make us miserable.  One thing for sure, it doesn’t draw good things towards.  Who would want to be around us?

But being thankful for what you have creates within our system a confident approach to life, draws good things including good people towards us. Let’s face it, makes us feel better about ourselves and have hope in today and faith in tomorrow.

So which would we rather have? A ladder that ascends upwardly or one that descends downwardly?ladderth9A530GTO
