In this article, I’m going to give you five reasons you must give thanks and appreciation to others and towards the end, I’m going to personally give thanks and appreciation to the people that I believe are congruent, genuine, and good people.
As I’m currently writing this, I thought to myself, I can either post an article on Black Friday Deals that companies take an advantage of, or I can have a GIVING mentality and tell you what I believe Thanksgiving is all about
I honestly got inspired to write this article after hearing this amazing podcast from my friend Mark and I will link this podcast in this article, because quite frankly, I want you to hear it.
Before you say, “Naw man, I don’t want to give thanks because I cannot think of any good reason to give thanks. I have a hard life and shit keeps going wrong.”
Here’s my response to you, stop right there. Because if you have clothes in your closet, a bathroom that isn’t dirty with bacteria, you also have a toothbrush to have a good smile, and also you have a decent job, then you’ve got to stop your mind from being so damn negative.
Have you listened to it? Awesome, let’s keep going, because I want to give you the five important reasons you must give thanks and appreciation…
When You Give Thanks, You Get More to be Grateful For
The universal law is this my friend, give thanks and you’ll get more to be grateful for. This has played out in my life time and time again. When you give thanks, you will get what you want in life.
When you have a victim mindset on not getting what you want, you might want to examine that. Because when you address that, you become self-aware.
Awareness of your own vices can and will help, but you gotta take action to improve it. Whining about it doesn’t help, in fact, whining without proposing a solution is complaining.
Instead, think of a solution, be in a masculine mindset, as this is what my blog is all about, being solution-oriented is very masculine.
But wait, “are you hating on feminine energy Adam?” No I’m not, in fact, feminine energy is beautiful. So before you start assuming I’m a misogynist, you must know that I have nothing against feminine energy.
The reason why I’m even saying anything about this is because I already get people throwing me unnecessary labels. It’s unfortunate we live in a society where when people express their higher status truth, they make the wrong assumptions on who they really are.
When You Give Thanks, You Are Highly Masculine
You heard that correctly. One of the biggest a-ha moments that I realized when diving deep into social skills is when I expressed appreciation to barista’s of how much I appreciated their work, it led to getting offered free drinks.
Give thanks and appreciation to women brother, this is something that they want to hear but won’t tell you. That goes without saying, when you give thanks, you are in your masculine mindset.
I strongly encourage you to just say to the next woman you see at any customer service type job, “I appreciate the work you do.”
You will make her feel so fucking good that she will pour out her feminine energy and give thanks in return!
The more you make people feel good in general, you are seen as a charismatic person.
When You Give Thanks, You Give People Charisma
Of course, I always tie all of my articles in to having good social skills because as you know, I absolutely believe that being a successful charismatic communicator is one of the most important skills that you can ever learn as a human being.
Especially when you train your state of mind to operate on your higher purpose, you can and you will give people charisma. I find that I’m on top of my game after I get in a hard hitting workout because it’s powerful to raise up your confidence.
Also because I feel like a million bucks from working out, I am feeling epic to share that EXCELLENT podcast to get Mark more listeners. Because you know what? I am simply a giving dude.
The more you give people a good vibe, the more you will get more to be thankful for. So my friend if you’re a reader of my blog, thank you for taking the time to read my articles.
When You Give Thanks, You Achieve Success
When you give thanks, you are a success. I know this sounds slightly cheesy and you’re thinking…
“What in the literal fuck are you talking about? How does giving thanks help me achieve success?”
Here’s my response to you. Giving thanks can and will give you the success you are looking for.
It might take some time, but it’s going to happen.
Here’s something that I have to work on my friend, and I still on occasion catch myself doing this admittedly.
I get highly impatient and want results fast. Then I’m reminded of what wise spiritual teachers have taught me.
That is success requires patience and resilience to fail forward.
Most people when they realize this the hard way, they fucking quit. That’s where I come in and tell you this…
Brother, learn to control your subconscious mind to be more decisive! Because your purpose is number one!
DO NOT FUCKING QUIT.
Even though some of my articles are harsh as fuck, I’m actually on YOUR SIDE.
I simply point out that WHEN you can give thanks, you’re one step closer to success.
When You Give Thanks, People See You as Higher Status
Status is not about owning a million properties. Status is also not about having possession of resources.
In case you didn’t know my friend, when you give thanks, people will see you as higher status!
And no, I want you to stop saying, “But Adam, shouldn’t I be millionaire?”
Look man, I’ve worked with a millionaire that is the author of the best-selling book Higher Status.
Here’s what I learned from JC, status is not bought like society wants you to believe. Status is learned over time.
Because unfortunately, society has done a damn good job to manipulate you to believe status is bought.
So I actually want to circle back to what all great spiritual high level teachers say, “You catch more bees with honey.”
As the old saying goes, you catch more bees with honey. So send thanks and appreciation my dude!
You will become higher status as a side effect when you give thanks.
Giving Thanks to the Following People
I want to give thanks to the following genuine people, of course you know I’m going to mention Mark and Jason.
Here are more people I want to give thanks to…
Jon Anthony, Craig Ballantyne, Bedros Keuilian, Wes Watson, Marni Kinrys, Kristen Carney, and lastly my girlfriend.
All of these people have been a positive force in my life.
You have people that are positive forces in your life so don’t forget them.
Write them down and only listen to the ones that YOU want to listen to. But I will say this side tangent…
Don’t overly consume content, there comes a point where action beats procrastination.
And as I always say on my blog all the time, follow your own lead, be on your own path to success.
The Bottom Line
What would love do here? -Doctor Wayne Dyer
Here’s what I want you to do this weekend, go to the first person you see, and give thanks.
I know sometimes even family can get under our skin, however, it’s important to even give them thanks!
So do yourself the favor of giving the world your higher purpose and give them the gifts of who you are.
If you think this is too much of a weird article for your taste, you are the one that absolutely must give thanks the most.
Because when you give thanks and appreciation, the universe rewards you as a result.
Instead of scrolling through your phone, or eating the next slice of pumpkin pie, just send thanks to the people that have played a positive impact in your life.
Then and only then you will fully understand the sheer power of giving thanks.
Sounds feminine right? It’s actually not.
In fact, the more you realize that when you act from love, the more you get what you want.
So if you don’t get this, I will gladly ask you to stop reading my articles.
If you’re still a reader, awesome, you are the fucking legends I want to meet.
