Day 6 of 28 days Magical Challenge!
“If you take any activity, any art, any discipline, any skill – take it and push it as far as you can go, push it beyond and where it has ever been before, push it to the wildest edges of edges, then you force it into the realm of magic.”
How can it be that a person who is born into total poverty, starts out with nothing and has very little education goes on to become a president or a celebrity, or builds an empire and becomes one of the wealthiest people in the world? And how is it that two people can start out in the same career, and yet one person’s career goes from success to even more success, while the other person works himself or herself into the ground, with little success, no matter how hard they try? The missing link to success is gratitude because according to the law of attraction you have to be grateful for what you have to attract success to you, so without gratitude, it’s impossible to have permanent success.
When you are grateful for your job, you will automatically give more to your work, and when you give more to your work, you will increase the money and success that is returned to you. If you are not grateful for your job, you will automatically give less. When you give less you decrease what comes back to you, and as a result, you will never be happy in your work, you will never give more than you have to, and your job or work will stagnate and eventually deteriorate, which could mean losing your job. Remember, for those who do not have gratitude, even what they have will be taken from them.
Think about all the things you could be grateful for in your work. To begin with, think about the fact that you actually have a job! Think about how many people are unemployed, who would give anything to have a job. Think about the timesaving equipment you use, such as phones, printers, the Internet, and computers. Think about the people you work with and the friendships you have with them. Think about the people who make your job easier, such as receptionists, assistants, janitors, and delivery people. Think about how good it feels when you receive your paycheck, and think about the favorite aspects of your job that you love doing.

I loved this one, This practice actually made me realize, how often we complain about so many things which we do not have, but forget to look at the brighter side of life.
