Challenges: Obstacles to Gratitude Thriving
A sense of entitlement blocks the influence of gratitude. If you think you deserve everything then there is very little room for thankfulness.
False Humility – If you think you are unable to receive from others then this will always pass up on experiencing the influence of gratefulness.
Indebtedness – If you are worried about unmerited favour and a gift which comes to you from it, then you will step away from the influence of gratitude
Suffering – If you are unable to see possibility through pain then you are likely to be missing out on the opportunity offered to you during the suffering.
Counter-intuitive – If you see that widening the range of others who influence our lives as a negative then you will keep a controlling mindset and focus on life as always needing to be just.
Persuasive negativity – If you see the world as half empty rather than looking at the gift that your life is already half full then you will always be moving away from the influence of gratitude.
