From an early age, I learned the power of being content.

It is the same realisation that allows me to sleep at night instead of worrying about things that I cannot fix. 

Each day presents its own fair dosage of challenges, but each day is also a learning opportunity. This is why perception is key in how our lives turn out. When you view challenges as things for you to learn from, then you won't dwell much on sulking and wishing things to be better.

I've realised that life is created in such a way that what is meant to be mine, will be mine. As long as I take care of the little that has been entrusted to me, more will come my way. 

Truth is that greed or constant feelings of dissatisfaction can rob one from seeing all the great blessings that they have. 

As Mahatma Gandhi once said: "Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's needs, but not every man's greed.”

Life itself is a blessing and the fact that you are alive means there is an opportunity for better things to come your way. 

One of the greatest quotes from Oprah Winfrey states: "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." 

Gratitude makes room for more blessings. 

This Monday, the motivation is for you to count your blessings instead of what is not going on right in your life. It is this heart of gratitude that will attract greater opportunities.
