“He who receives a benefit with gratitude repays the first installment on his debt.”
—Seneca, ancient Roman Philosopher
On this special day of Thanksgiving in the United States, I hope you are spending time with family and friends.
Throughout the day, consider all the riches you have in your life. Consider, too, the benefits you’ve received from those around you.
Take this time to fully and generously thank those in the kitchen, at the dinner table, and watching the football game, as a small installment on this debt.
How can and will you take this attitude of gratitude with you throughout the holiday season and new year to generate a surplus in your account?
