Freud once said that the adult needs acquire two basic skills in order to be happy- the capacity to love, and the capacity to work.

I would go one further. I would add gratitude to the list.

A toddler can love. A teenager can have a great work ethic.

But gratitude takes A LOT longer to learn. It takes most of us to reach middle age before we’re even close.

You want to be happier and more successful? Try gratitude first.
