. “Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough” ? Oprah Winfrey .............. Yes, but you know what? It's easy for someone like Oprah to say that.. In the early days of her career , I'm sure she was focused on everything she didn't have that she wished she had.. And now she's got everything.. I think, the secret of the rich is to have more and more to end up with more.. But they tell the rest of us to just be happy with what we have .. I think, if you concentrate on what you don't have, you'll work hard to have them and you can be thankful then for what you have which will enable you having more in the end..And because you have a lot of investments, you'll end up having even more, and more without working as hard.. Just like Oprah and the other rich people like her.. right?.. Bess ..

I get you.. When I was growing up living in poverty, I have nothing in my mind but to get focused on what I don't have which is mainly a home where I feel secure and will never go to bed with empty stomach .. I focused on what I didn't have and worked hard to have them ... I can now say, I am grateful for what I have ..I want no more ... I'm sure Oprah who claimed to have grown up in poverty, have focused on the things she din't have and worked hard to have them until she's got all the things she wanted and more... I would probably continue to have more if I had the same opportunity she had.. But because I din't, I'm happy and contented now...

I take her words by this way " Be contented with what I have, enrich it, and the rewards of my hardwork will follow" because if I will think of the things that I dont have like 1 million pesos then how can I ever start my dream business? But if I will be thankful that I have 1 thousand pesos, I can start a small business that can be my ladder to success that Im aiming.

I really have everything that I want so I don't do either. I am not rich but I want for nothing and I need nothing else. After I lost everything in a house fire I learned what is really important, love, family and home, and home is where the ones you love are.
