What’s the Meaning of Your Life?
Use Gratitude to Find Out!
by Tony Mase
Being grateful for things in your life is an important part of being happy.
But did you know that gratitude can go a whole lot further than that?
In fact, gratitude can actually help you figure out your life’s purpose!
Think about it – if you’re not particularly grateful for anything in your life, you probably spend a lot of your time feeling bored, frustrated, or downright empty.
Even if there’s not something in particular that you feel bad about, you probably just feel somewhat disconnected and aimless.
By taking the time and the effort to appreciate things more (even the little things!), you can actually discover the meaning of your life. Here’s how it works:
1. Gratitude is rooted in your spirit.
The things you’re grateful for will depend on your specific personality and mindset. They’re the very essence of who you are and who you want to be. Your spirit is completely authentic. It’s not jaded by outside stresses or peer pressure. Instead, it’s the part of you that’s the most pure. So, by digging deeper into your spirit and discovering exactly what it is you’re grateful for, you’ll wind up feeling happier and more loving. You’ll also be able to express these emotions more easily. Even if you forget from time to time, your spirit knows what things make you the most happy. By tapping into it, you’ll naturally gravitate towards those things.
2. Gratitude reminds you that anything is possible.
Even if your mind tends to be skeptical, your spirit isn’t. No matter what happens, it believes in limitless possibilities. No matter what you’ve ever dreamed of doing, your spirit believes you can achieve it. Even if you don’t know exactly how to do it, your spirit believes that you will figure out a way. It’s the eternal optimist! By overlooking gratitude, you’re overlooking your spirit. As a result, you wind up listening to that skeptical part of your mind – you know, the part that tells you don’t have the time or the talent to go after whatever it is you truly want. Until you place a bigger emphasis on your spirit (and use gratitude to do it), you’ll keep falling short of your dreams!
3. Gratitude helps you focus on the positives.
Wouldn’t it be nice to see the good in yourself and everyone around you?
The more you focus on gratitude, the more you’ll be able to see the positives outweigh the negatives.
As a result, you’ll have an easier time lifting up yourself. After all, the more positives you see in life, the easier it is to find and fulfill your own purpose.
You can also work wonders for the people you care about!
By being grateful for everyone you encounter, you’ll naturally help them just as much as you help yourself. You’ll naturally give them more support and encourage them to do more.
Above all else, when you feel grateful for each of your life experiences, you won’t be able to help but find a greater meaning in everything you do.
No matter how dark things get, if you can focus on what’s good, you can maintain a sense of clarity that will help you fight through it.

Want to Be Happy Right Now?
Follow These 3 Tips
by Tony Mase
Unfortunately, though, “later” never seems to roll around.
Because you have all of these preconceived notions about what you need in order to be happy, you miss out on enjoying other things you should!
If you’re waiting for “later” – and wishing you could just be happy right now – you can be. All you have to do is follow these 3 tips:
1. Make gratitude a major part of your daily life.
When’s the last time you were truly grateful for something?
How good did it make you feel?
Wouldn’t it be nice to have that feeling every day?
OK, so you might not get engaged every day or get to find out you’re pregnant every day.
However, even little things can make you feel incredibly grateful.
It’s up to you to make the most out of them!
By focusing more on what you DO have (instead of what you DON’T have), you’ll find it’s easier to be grateful for even the littlest of things.
As a result, you’ll get to have that good feeling all the time – and you’ll be a much happier person!
2. Stop and smell the roses.
If you constantly feel rushed and disorganized, you’re never going to feel happy.
If you want to experience true happiness, you’ve got to take some time away from the office, away from the phone calls, and away from the emails and get some “me time”.
Start today by taking a walk, reading a chapter from your favorite book, listening to your favorite band, or taking a warm bubble bath.
None of these things have to take very long, but they’re crucial to how you feel about your life. Without them, you’ll never be truly happy!
3. Enjoy the ride.
Oftentimes, people are unhappy because they’re so fixated on the end result they don’t appreciate everything that gets them there.
The truth is – every time you do something that gets you closer to your ultimate goal (no matter how small), you’re making progress.
If you can learn to enjoy those milestones, you’ll be a much happier person. As an added benefit, the end result will be even sweeter when you take note of everything that went into it along the way!
Above all else, remember happiness is a choice.
Sure, there are always going to be things in life that make you temporarily unhappy, but it’s up to you to prevent those things from taking over your life.
If you want to be happy, choose to be that way – every day!
