Thankful for what you must do
The effort is what you make it. You can make it a pain or you can make it a source of satisfaction and treasure.
If you’re resentful about what you must do and reluctant to get started, the person you’re hurting is yourself. There’s no good reason to be that way.
You have the power to immediately stop fighting the effort and start embracing it. Not only will you become more effective, you’ll also eliminate a completely unnecessary source of stress.
Sure, it’s easy to be thankful for the things you love and enjoy. Yet gratitude can be even more powerful when you apply it to situations, obligations and tasks you never asked for.
Be thankful for what you must do. You’ll be better at it, and a whole lot happier while getting it done.
