Gratitude is one of the most important ingredients to becoming a successful person. Gratitude is just as important as persistence and hard work. Looking at the world through a lens of gratefulness will produce happier thoughts and improve your relationships with others. One method to achieve a more grateful mind is to write five things you were grateful for at the end of each day. This will train your mind to look for those things throughout your day. It helps keep you focused on the positive aspects of your life.
