143: Challenging your Beliefs: Expressing Gratitude Improves Your Life


All this week with the exception of today I am holding a magnifying glass to common beliefs that exist in popular culture.  My hope is to have you question your own beliefs and see if they are still valid from when you first learned them.

However, today I am focusing on how to create a belief that is based on solid evidence.  Gratitude is the topic, and a better one you would be hard pressed to find.

The belief is that your life is better when you express gratitude.  I will take you through the process of reaching this conclusion and testing its validity

Quote of the Day:

"Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe that change forever how we experience life and the world." - John Milton
