Do you sometimes ask yourself why you are working hard only to receive a meager salary and working doubly hard to make ends meet while some enjoy a 6-digit salary and all the perks? Do you sometimes wonder why you live in a small bungalow while others live in a three-story-thousand-hectares mansion? Do you question why you always have to wait for items to go on sale before you can buy while others can buy premium-priced-designer items anytime they want?
Not surprisingly, people measure their happiness by comparing themselves with others. Some measure their happiness based on what the television ads, on what their colleagues tell them, and on the price of the food they had for lunch.
Sharing with you one of Bo’s articles I received few days ago.
How do you begin your day?
I begin by saying, “This is a great day! Great blessings will come to me today!”
Because I believe we’re prophets. And what we say happens.
If you wake up grumbling and say, “What bad luck will happen today?” that’s what you’ll get. Because the universe will deliver what you expect it to deliver.
Here’s an example.
Because of my work, I take a lot of plane trips.
And I enjoy them.
Whenever the stewardess gives me food, I say, “This comes from you, Lord.”
When I recline my seat, I say, “Wow! I can lean back and relax. Ahhhh!”
When they show a movie in the plane, I say “What a treat!”
Some people don’t ride the plane like that.
I see their eyes always looking towards the great divide between the economy class and the first class.
When the stewardess serves their food in plastic plates, they’ll say, “First class passengers get their food in porcelain with a real silver spoon and fork.”
And when they recline their seats, they grumble, “It doesn’t lean back enough. In first class, seats adjust all the way to 90 degrees.” And when the movie starts showing, they say, “In first class, they have a choice of seventy films in their personalized video.”
This crazy attitude doesn’t only happen in planes.
It happens in life. Everyday.
People go around living in houses and driving in cars and wearing clothes that they don’t want because they always look for what they don’t have.
Everyday, I try to remind myself that I’m always in first class—no matter where I am! Why? Because in my mind, there are no second-class blessings.
HIS LOVE IS FIRST CLASS. Always.
Assignment: Try this out tomorrow. When you wake up, jump out of bed and shout, “This is a great day. Great blessings will come to me today!” And throughout the day, thank God for everything that you receive. You’ll be surprised how different your day will be.
Live in first class wherever you are.
May your dreams come true,
