Guest Post with Brianna Dorrough

10.06.2016

Hey guys! So we are back with yet another guest post! Oh my gosh let me just say it is such a blessing to get to work with other bloggers, or in this case writers, and do guest posts and submissions. I am so honored that people are willing to work with me and my blog. So far I have done three guest posts/collaborations on my blog! (You can check out the other two here!) Now that may not sound like a lot, but to me that is a huge accomplishment.

I am just honored that Brianna Dorrough, a fellow blogger and young entrepreneur with a niche for writing decided to work with me! I received an email from her stating how much she had loved my work. Thanks to Brianna for that because it's always great to have your hard work be noticed. Brianna told me that she has always loved to write and has been writing for as long as she could remember and she wants to get her writing out to others. She is creating a blog herself which will be launching on October 21,2016! So congrats to her! I will post a link to her blog in this post when it goes online.

Brianna was so generous enough to submit two guest posts so I will post one of them here and then the other will go up on a later date.

For today I am going to post her article on having an "Attitude of Gratitude"

(All things mentioned are her opinion and her voice unless stated otherwise)

In today's society we are often busy with the future! Future planning, Future meetings, future goals! When we have to be or where we are going! We have become so consumed by thought process of reaching that next step, that at times we seem to forget how far we've come! No matter your goals, journey or dreams, we've all started somewhere! We must give thanks for the strides that we have made and the boundaries that we have crossed. Rather it was ten goals or one goal you've accomplished they all deserve and should be equally celebrated! So what you got an A on your first test! Go ahead and celebrate, that's one less test you have to worry about failing! However we are not stimulated to do such! Society has molded out thoughts and perceptions with the Horse and Carrot Method and no matter what we achieve we are not satisfied. We habitually move on to the next daunting task that we want to complete, rather than giving gratitude for the goals that we've already reached. Conquering and Enduring adversity is beyond downplayed in today's society. Despite the fact that WE ALL face adversity, we should celebrate the triumph of one's adversity. As there are many individuals who face and experience problems or incidents on their journey that they are not ever able to recover from. Its an Attitude of Gratitude  that humbles us and prepares us for the nest trek of our journey to our newest upcoming goals. It gives us a reminder of how far we've actually come and insight on how far we have to go.

How does one adapt an Attitude of Gratitude you say? Well she has listed a few:

  1. Start by simply giving thanks! (Be thankful to your creator, no matter what you believe or call them, there is someone greater than you guiding you along your way)
  2. Moments of Reflection: (Taking a moment to mentally visualize your journey! Where are you now? Where were you and who was in your life when you first began your journey? Are they still there? A moment of reflection, is your time to replay and see your evolution, often times we have to remember where we came from to truly get where we are going.)
  3. Write New Goals and Give Thanks in advance: (The amount of power that are in our words is insurmountable. I cant even begin to elaborate on how much we don't even utilize it. Writing future goals and then beginning to speak them as if they are so, has gotten me so far and the only thing I can say is that you have to TRY IT. It Works! Writing your new goals also puts your ideas into perspective and helps to bring them from your pages to manifestation.)
There are many ways that one displays an Attitude of Gratitude, far greater than this list. So take a moment to be thankful for the life's obstacles for: "Where there is NO STRUGGLE there is NO STRENGTH!" -Oprah Winfrey


I want to say thank you again to Brianna Dorrough for this AMAZING post! Such a talented writer.
