Am I Being Ungrateful By Wanting More From Life?

Instead Of Letting “Either, Or” Thinking Hold You Back In Life, Here’s How To Shift Into “Yes, And” Thinking So That You Can Accelerate Toward Your Dreams

After investing the last 40 years studying and mentoring others in transformational principles, I’ve been asked more than a few times…

“Mary, does wanting more abundance, freedom and flow in my life make me ungrateful for what I have now? Should I just be happy with what I’ve got, since it’s more than others in some parts of the world have?”

The short answer? No!

This type of thinking is what I like to call “EITHER, OR” thinking…

Most of us are conditioned to believe that things either have to be one way, or another way – they can’t be both ways at the same time.

For example: I can either be satisfied with and grateful for what I have, OR I can have a desire for more. But both of these things can’t coexist at the same time.

But this couldn’t be further from the truth!

This way of “either, or” thinking can actually hold you back from entertaining and living into the greatest possibilities for your life, because the fact is, you and I and every one of us in the human race are growth-seeking beings by nature.

You are a spiritual being having a human experience, which means that there is a part of you that is always seeking to grow and express itself more fully!

Thomas Edison once said,

“Show me a thoroughly satisfied man and I’ll show you a failure.”

What he meant by this is that it’s human nature to want to grow upwards and outwards.

Whether you long greater abundance, more time and money freedom or better health, this longing for MORE is a reflection of your spirit wanting to expand into something greater.

And guess what? You absolutely can want MORE and, at the very same time, cultivate an attitude of gratitude for what you have!

You can be grateful for this day, for your body that carries you through this life, for your loved ones and your health, you can choose happiness and you can still want to move into what’s next for you and your life.

When you notice yourself stuck in “either, or” thinking, I invite you to shift into a “yes, and” mindset

When you feel yourself longing for more, and you notice your inner critic chiming in saying that you should just be grateful for what you have, remind yourself that you can feel BOTH things at the time.

You can say to yourself, “YES, I am grateful… AND I would love to grow and expand and become more of who I am capable of being!”

Making a conscious decision to shift into “yes, and” thinking will take you just a few moments… but when you do, you’ll immediately become more open to opportunities to move toward what it is that you’re longing for!

This is the genesis of how dreams get transformed into reality.

And now, here’s a free gift for you!
