Much has been said about the attitude of gratitude. Many Guru’s, religious leaders and peddlers of feel good philosophies talk about the need to cultivate this, but can’t explain how or why it works. We are asked to go on faith that it just works. In these pages you will find two short contrasting accounts explaining how gratitude works for and against you in your interaction with all you come in contact with. Failure is the harvested crop for those who do not understand this practical principle.
