Lesson 1 of 23
In Progress

Key Takeaways

Here are the main ideas in this course:

  1. There are two ways to live when it comes to gratitude: You either live with an active appreciation for the people, events and circumstances of your life, or you don’t. Ultimately, it’s a choice to live either way, and if you don’t consciously choose to live the first way, you are in effect making the choice to live the second way.
  2. Gratitude is an anabolic or life-giving emotion.
  3. Gratitude displaces catabolic or life-destroying emotions.
  4. Experiencing and expressing gratitude is first a choice and second a skill.

Completing this course can help you:

  1. Cultivate a willingness to look for gifts and blessings in everything – including in the most difficult aspects of your life.
  2. Make or renew a commitment to live with gratitude.
  3. Develop at least one practice related to gratitude.
