Power Quotes From The
Gratitude Is Our Life Force
"Gratitude is the life force of everything. It can help us at
any point in our life. Turn your attention from what's not going
well or causing you distress, dis-ease, and frustration to just
focusing on what you appreciate. Just focus moment by moment, one
by one on what you appreciate. When you do that, gratitude can then
open you up to awareness which is self-awareness." -
Passion Over Purpose Explained
"Self-awareness is really important and allows you to understand
who you are and what you were made for. Yes, we were all made for
awesome things but sometimes we can caught up in the pursuit of, 'I
need to find my purpose.' If we just shift our perspective and
realize that our purpose is to live more on purpose, be
more present in each moment, and be more intentional of each step
we take, then what is revealed to us is our passion." -
Living From Our Heart
"We're more than just what we do. Sometimes we get stuck on
defining ourselves by our job titles, what we do, and what we're
contributing. I think the most important thing to know is that if
you're living from your heart, you're making a difference by being
true to yourself. That itself can help inspire others because it's
also being of service to others." - Shannon
