IShared DEAS has the power to expand perspectives, change thinking, and move lives. Here are two ideas for the curious mind to engage:
Ryan Hawk on the quality of gratitude you find in changing relationships and people:
“They praise the people behind them. When you talk to these types of people, they always shine the light of goodness on others. If there is something good in their life, they are quick to point out how it can be done without the good work of other people.

Jonathan Sacks the benefits of gratitude:
“When individuals focus on and express gratitude, they experience more positive emotions. Gratitude encourages the enjoyment of positive experiences. It strengthens feelings of self-worth. It helps people cope with stress. It prevents unfavorable comparisons with others. This encourages moral behavior—grateful people are more likely to help others. It tends to get rid of negative emotions like anger. And it counteracts the hedonic treadmill. Gratitude is the antithesis of the mindset of a market-driven, consumer society. It’s about contentment with what we have, not hunger for what we don’t have.”
