Lesson 20 from The Hard Knocks School of Life

Practice gratitude you will improve yourself and the world.
Have you ever noticed how misery seems to accompany lack of gratitude? For example many people are born in the USA and inherit money yet seem to never be satisfied that the USA is a fairly decent place to live. No they want to live somewhere perfect (never realizing that if such a place existed the moment they entered it perfection would cease to exist) and so the current system must be destroyed so that a newer and better system can be emplaced. Never mind the chaos that the destruction of the current system will cause, it is necessary for progress.

I ask sincerely: progress toward what? More ungrateful people who make the whole world worse?
