             Develop an Attitude of Gratitude

                                                    Anonymous

  When I say count your blessings, not your troubles, the message is not to become complacent. If complacence were the message you got, I would be guilty of faulty communication, and you would be guilty of selective listening.

  To give you an example of selective listening, let me share with you a story I heard about a medical doctor who was invited as a guest speaker to address a group of alcoholics. He wanted to make a demonstration that would be powerful enough to make people realize that alcohol was injurious to their health. He had two containers, one with pure distilled water and one with pure alcohol. He put an earthworm into the distilled water and it swam beautifully and came up to the top. He put another earthworm into the alcohol and it disintegrated in fornt of everyone's eyes. He wanted to prove that this was what alcohol did to the insides of our body. He asked the group what the moral of the story was and one person from behind said: If you drink alcohol you won't have worms in your stomach."Was that the message? Of course not, that was selective listening - we hear what we want to hear and not what is being said.

  Many of our blessings are hidden treasure - count your blessings and not your troubles.

    注重你拥有的幸福,而不是烦恼。 我这样说,并不是让你自鸣得意。如果你得到的是这个信息,那我会为错误的传达感到愧疚,而你也该为偏听自责。

    对于偏听,我给举个例子。我曾经听说过这样一个故事, 让我们一起来分享:有一个医生受邀为一群酒鬼演讲。他想作个强有力的示范,让他们意识到酒精对人身体健康的危害。他拿出两个容器,一个装有纯净蒸馏水,另一个装有纯酒精。他在蒸馏水里放一条蚯蚓,蚯蚓欢快地游动,很快浮了上来。他在酒精里放入另一条蚯蚓,大家注意到蚯蚓很快被分解了。他想以此来证明酒精对人体内脏造成的损害。医生问酒鬼们这个示范有什么寓意。后面有一个人说道:如果你喝酒,胃里不会生虫子。是这样吗?当然不是,这就是偏听--只听见自己想听的,而不是说者的愿意。我们的诸多幸福都隐藏着的宝藏 -- 注重你的幸福,而不是烦恼。
