Unless your last name is Rockefeller, Kennedy or Trump, you've most likely faced this fact of life. What is it? Along with death and taxes, the other fact of life most of us have faced is pain of not having enough money.
Money is not everything, but not having enough to at least afford the necessities of life can cause embarrassment, stress and even pain. In fact, the number one cause of divorce year after year, in good times or recession is money. Not having enough money beats out growing apart, physical abuse and even infidelity as the number one reason for marriage break ups.
But unfortunately marriage is not the only area not having enough money puts strain on. You name it, a business, a single life, your love life you name it. But life is too short to allow the pain of not having enough money drain happiness from it.
Fortunately, I've discovered the T.A.G principle to eliminate the pain of not having enough money. Use it while your working to make things better, and based on statistics they do get better. I'll explain what the T.A.G principle shortly.
Remember the key to overcoming the pain of not having enough money depends on one factor. What is it? I'm glad you asked. It's how successful you are at keeping your family, marriage, business or yourself together until your circumstances get better.
Applying the T.A.G principle will help you overcome the pain of not having enough money until things turn around. In fact, the faster you apply these principles the faster your circumstances will turn around. On the other hand, ignoring these T.A.G principle will make your obstacles seem higher, your problems deeper and your difficulties last longer.
Based on research not using the T.A. G principle is the number one cause of unhappy rich people. Show me an unhappy rich person and I'll show you the lack of applying T.A.G principles. Applying the T.A.G principle will make your life seem richer, and not applying the T.AG principle will make your life seem poorer. That's how powerful this principle is.
Here's the powerful T.A.G principle that will instantly make your life richer. Read, apply it and then share it with someone you care about. The T.A.G principle stands for Thankfulness, Appreciation and Gratitude. These are the powerful trinity if practiced daily will make your life richer and if ignored will make it poorer. Let's look at them in more detail.
1.Thankfulness - is your ability to notice and acknowledge the little things in life that contributes to your benefit. Often the number one way most people trip over this principle is waiting until something major happens to them that is good.
The key is getting into the habit of noticing and acknowledging the little things in life. For example, being thankful for being able to hear a chirping bird, to see a glowing sunset or to smell fresh bread baking or to swallow food without pain. Can you be thankful.
2. Appreciation - is the ability to be satisfied with what you have and the ability to make the most of it. This doesn't mean you're not striving to improve your condition or circumstances. But it's refusing to wait until something happens or someone does something before you experience happiness.
It would shock you how many people refuse and resist being happy until some future event happens. Practicing appreciation for what you have now will help you achieve more to appreciate in the future, try it.
3. Gratitude - is an attitude When you maintain an attitude of gratitude you can't help but overcome or literally come up over any difficulties you face. Lack of self-esteem is the number one psychological problem in America. This comes from the inability or refusal to be grateful. For example, the stereotypical spoiled rich child, born with the silver spoon in their mouths.
Yet they suffer the most from self-esteem problems. Often this is traced to the inability to be grateful. The good news is you don't have to be rich to be grateful, it doesn't cost anything. That means it's benefits can be enjoyed by anyone who has the courage to use it.
These are the 3 principles that make up the T.A.G system use it to make your life richer and more rewarding. Please don't make the mistake of waiting for some future to happen before you apply them to your life. Start now where you stand and you'll be thankful, appreciative and grateful you did.
