Do you look at life as a gift or a burden?

You have freedom when you view life as a gift. Viewing life as a burden makes you a slave.

Here are some ways to view life as a gift:

 

Look at every day as a gift!

Write down three things you are thankful for and remember them throughout the day.  Gratitude impacts your attitude, so choose to be grateful and treat each day as a gift.

Seek people you can listen to and learn from.

Be intentional! Look for ways you can listen and learn from people.  This practice will build over time and become a blessing to you and others.

Nice does not equal kindness.

Between being nice and being kind; kindness tends to take extra effort and intentionality to accomplish. It comes more from doing things for others because it is the right thing, not the “polite” thing.

Compounding works.  

Compounding works are about taking time each day to work towards a long term goal. You can’t lose fifty pounds in one day or learn a new language in a week.  Take time to read each day, eat healthy, workout, etc.  We overestimate what we can do in a day and underestimate what we CAN do in a lifetime.
