Every motive creates a dynamic, an energy that is in keeping with the motive. Attitudes also create dynamics, and so do behaviors. By grumbling, a person sets into motion negative energies that directly affect his or her own thinking, his or her emotions, and his or her point of view. Grumbling is mentally unhealthy and its effects are ever-widening, like the proverbial stone cast into the water makes waves ever-extending outward.
Conversely, thanksgiving creates an entirely different set of dynamics: positive energies that create emotional strength, mental health, and a solid basis for assured optimism. Here we learn the six damaging consequences of grumbling and the six measurable results of thanksgiving. Conquer grumbling. Become a thanks-giver all the time. The ten benefits in your life will amaze you and everyone else. Thanksgiving is not merely a special day of the year—it’s a way of life.
