Show Your Gratitude This Christmas!

December 23, 2006

Dec 25th is coming.. Christmas that is.. The day which celebrates the birth of our Saviour.

For this year’s xmas, things may not be so well as we wld all like. With the increasing risk of terrorist threats and other tragedies striking, it makes one wonder abt the significance of this yr’s xmas.

Nonetheless, X’mas is still a day to mark the birth of our Saviour. In the midst of all e tragedies and confusion that is going around, we still have alot of things we should be thankful for.

I understand it can be hard to appreciate what we have when we’re not happy with our lives, but once again, it’s all about what we focus on and what we attract. The more appreciative we can be about our existing circumstances, the more we will attract things to appreciate.

If you have to, start with something small and obvious. Each morning when you awake, say something like, “I appreciate the opportunity to live another day. I appreciate the bed I slept in all night. I’m grateful that I can take a hot shower and put on clean clothes today.”

As you go about your day, take a moment to appreciate everything you can, no matter how small and insignificant it may seem. Over time, this puts you in a gratitude mindset and will begin to attract more and more things to appreciate – and more often than not, those things continue to get bigger and bigger the more you keep up with this practice.

Thus, whatever your plans are for this year’s X’mas, I really hope u have an enjoyable Xmas. But while u are enjoying, take this day to remember the people around you and who have been part of your life some way or another.

It could be your parents, siblings, friends, spouse, neighbour, or even the security guard protecting your house. Take this day to show your gratitude to them.

I feel that we often have this tendency to take one another for granted. Myself included. We sometimes get too caught up with our pursuit for success that we don’t even bother to slow down and express appreciation for ppl around us.

Honestly, it costs nothing simply to smile, say thank you or I love you. Hence, let your loved ones know how much u care for them and start displaying your gratitude from today onwards! This small little things really makes a difference in others’ lives and can indeed brighten someone else’s day.

So let this day be a day of celebration which is filled with love and appreciation. Regardless of who u are spending it with, or where you are celebrating, I wish you have a blessed and wonderful christmas ahead! Merry X’mas!

    Well said! Yes I must admit I’m also guilty of not showing enough appreciation to the ppl around me. Nonetheless, it shall be one of my goals next yr.

    Your bk certainly opens up my mindset to the idea of creating wealth and also making money online. I must say many of the income streams mentioned were totally unknown to me previously.

    I’m especially interested in affiliate marketing as it sounds like a good start for beginners like me. Any suggestions on how I should go about laying the foundation?

    Hi Sharlene,

    Glad that my eBook managed to open up your mindset towards creating income streams online. Many people are indeed unaware of the potential of making money online. And that is the precise reason why Patricia & I decided to come up with our own eBook, that is to spread the importance of multiple passive income streams and also the potential of an online income stream.

    And I must say you’re absolutely correct in saying that affiliate marketing is a good start for beginners. Nonetheless, in order to be a super affiliate, as mentioned in my eBook, you’ve got to prepared to put in the hard work.

    Hence, be sure to read through the techniques detailed inside carefully. When I first started out, I referred constantly to Ewen Chia’s Secret Affiliate Weapon and Rosalind Gardner’s Super Affiliate Handbook. Both of which are mentioned in my eBook. Hence, check them out at and
