Do you agree that having a great attitude of gratitude can save one from a lot of trouble in this life? Meaning when we have gratitude all the time, we will be contented of everything we have. Also people who has everything in life but still does not seem satisfied will realized that they should be contented after all. Does it mean that because we are not thankful it leaves us wanting more in life, like we are entitled for each blessings in life. An article mentioned that we should look at blessings in life as a gift and a loan therefore no real rights over them to call our own or be so proud or demanding to have them. What do you think?

An attitude of gratitude is a powerful contributor to a happy life. Some believe that it may be the single most effective way to increase happiness. It is like seeing more of the positive things in life than sulking on the bad ones.

That's true my friend. We should always be grateful for any help given to us. We should thank the person who helped us achieve the solution. If it is your friend, thank her. Though, we should also thank God for sending us such a friend, as His means of helping us.

I think that being grateful is a wonderful thing. It really does give people a quality of life that they may not have otherwise. Like anything else, it comes with a price. People that have always been handed things have no idea what it is like to struggle for them. When they see people who do, they often write it off as being something that person did wrong..that is until they are put in those shoes. They aren't as grateful for the things that they have as someone otherwise would be...but that's ok. Life is what we make of it for ourselves. I know that things are not easy and some things will never be planned but being grateful for what we have can make what what we have even better.

I think we should be thankful for what we have but always strive to be the best we can be. I man that is a beggar and content to be one, will not want to find a job, sometimes it is important to want things to better our lives, but we should never get greedy. What I am saying is we need balance.

Hi averygirl, Yes, I definitely agree, an attitude of gratitude makes all the difference in the world. We are creating our future moment by moment and an attitude of gratitude will always produce the results we want. No matter what it is that we want in life,the way to get more of it is to be grateful for what we already have. Life is beautiful gift, enjoy it even more with an attitude of gratitude. Blessings.

in my opinion, be gratefull = be happy. that simple. well, you might still want more in life, and it's natural. but, when you get it, you will be gratefull and admit that you get it by blessing instead of your own effort. and when you didn't get it, you will see that there must be a better one for you, you will not be too obsessed or depressed. generally, people love to stay longer with gratefull people because they bring positive influence :)
