Ways to distinguish yourself – #65 Be grateful

In several cultures across the world, a common ritual is to pray

silently for a few seconds before the meal. The prayer is usually to

say “Thank You” to GOD for that meal. It does make a lot of sense when

you think of millions of people in the world that are struggling to get

one good meal in a day. If you think of the number of children that die

of hunger in the world, it becomes almost a no-brainer to be grateful

for every meal that we get!

We can almost generalize this and say that it’s a good idea to be

grateful for everything we have in life – for all the wonderful people

that are surrounding us. For, if we are not grateful, there is a

dangerous tendency to take people for granted – especially the ones

that interact with us on a day to day basis.

If you reflect on the last three months of your life, I am sure you

will find several instances where people (who are close to you or ones

that you just made friendship with) who walked the extra mile just to

make your life a bit easier. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to plan and

acknowledge them for that? Better yet, how about planning to

reciprocate in some way – now or in the near future?

In summary, everyone needs help. Most

people get significant help. However, only a handful are grateful for

all the help they receive. You can stand out from the crowd by being

one of these handful people.


On this day of thanksgiving, I want to let all of you know that I am

grateful for all the love and support you have given me. THANK YOU.
