More on Being Grateful

Posted by Tom Locke on August 26th, 2012 filed in Business, General, History, Life

A month ago I shared a piece on being grateful.  In that piece I made a statement regarding people who lack gratitude never being truly happy. Successes for them are often not enjoyed. Tasks are achieved and it’s on to the next.  When failure occurs this can result in feelings of bitterness, anger and discouragement.

This really hit home to me with last week when I read that Film Director Tony Scott committed suicide by jumping to his death from a bridge [8/19/12] despite the fact he had a string of hit movies to his credit, a wife and kids, and a home in Beverly Hills.  It made me realize that being continuoulsy grateful for what you have and happiness is a matter of personal choice and perspective.
