Sacrifice

One of the definitions from Dictionary.com for the word sacrifice says:  To forfeit one thing for another thing of greater value.

It made me think about what I had sacrificed to pursue my dream of spreading the word about the incredible power of embracing gratitude, and becoming That Gratitude Guy.

I didn’t really think about it as a sacrifice, however I have noticed that I have forfeited a lot of things along the way in pursuit of my goal.  The reason is, I have an incredible passion for explaining what living a life of gratitude can do for people, especially for people that struggle, or are looking for a healthy coping mechanism.

Recently, in talks I have given, I have mentioned that somewhere in your life; find what you are passionate about.  You may have to make sacrifices, but by pursuing your dream and making some sacrifices to get there, you will live more fully than a lot of people do.

I am so grateful that I ultimately found something that I was this passionate about after 40 years of wondering what it would be.  I always wondered what I was going to be when I grew up…..

Really embrace gratitude and a gratitude journal to direct you to YOUR passion, and maybe even your destiny.
