Uproot the Weeds

We are not deserving of all that we want. In the place of a sense of entitlement, show gratitude.

Start with the mind-set that we will…

  • serve others first, eat last
  • share what we have earned and learned
  • agree to realistic expectations with others
  • navigate and negotiate for a shared value
  • recognize the challenges that others face
  • hold the self-confidence to plan and act for ourselves; others will do the same
  • recognize others for their efforts, appreciation may be returned
  • own your level of responsibility in a conflict
  • appreciate each blessing as they come to us

“To cultivate gratitude, we must first uproot the weeds of pride, entitlement, and comparison that choke out our blessings.” — Toyin Omofoye —
