5 Inspirational Quotes on Gratitude by Dale Carnegie
Dale Carnegie offered practical yet inspirational advice in many of his writings. He discussed gratitude, honesty, sincerity and appreciation as antidotes to toxic lifestyles. As we appreciate others and the environments we live in, let us remember to exercise gratitude without expecting anything in return. "It is natural for people to forget to be grateful; so if we go around expecting gratitude, we are headed straight for heartaches."(Dale Carnegie)
Think about yourself and the intrinsic benefits you derive from being a grateful being, not what you hope to get from others.
With that in mind, let's head straight to quotes that will keep you topped up and motivated as you practice thankfulness this weekend.
The more grateful you become, the more you attract many things to be grateful be for. Be thankful, and you'll turn around your life for the better, and ultimately, how you feel. I'm just speaking from experience!
On appreciating those close to us, Dale Carnegie also had a word of encouragement:
"We nourish the bodies of our children and friends and employees, but how seldom do we nourish their self-esteem? We provide them with roast beef and potatoes to build energy, but we neglect to give them kind words of appreciation that would sing in their memories for years like the music of the morning stars."
Let's go back to thoughts again because our thoughts can make or break us. The more you exercise thankfulness, the better you develop a way of thinking which your environment can't easily influence.
