EPISODE 171 Let me tell you another true story. A little while ago I was driving down a very busy county highway and there was a guy standing in the middle of the road. He was waiving his arms and I stopped my truck. He indicated that he ran out of gas and asked if I could give him a ride to the nearest gas station. Since there is a gas station near my office, I agreed. I drove the guy to the gas station and he purchased a plastic gas can and filled it with a gallon of gas. He then asked me if I could drive him back to his vehicle because he had no way of getting back. I agreed again. When we arrived at his vehicle, the guy just got out of my truck and walked away without saying a word. Not a thank you.  Not a good bye.  Nothing.  Not a single word. I had given about an hour of my time and a gallon of my own gas to take him to the gas station and then back to his vehicle. I have to admit, I was expecting a different response, a different attitude and showing some gratitude. I believe the man I helped was letting his attitude about running of gas and having a bad day override his ability to express any gratitude. What are some advantages of practicing gratitude instead of attitude in your own life? Practicing gratitude allows you to create a positive impact in your own life and in the life of others Out There on the Edge of Everything®… Stephen Lesavich, PhD Copyright © 2023 by Stephen Lesavich, PhD.  All rights reserved.
