What Are You Most Thankful For?

I came across this SelfGrowth.com poll today and looking at the results at the time, out of 26 votes, not a single person voted for Money and Career as being the things they feel thankful for.  I wondered:  Could it be because the respondents were from amongst those who are directly affected by the high unemployment rates that have  risen to 10.2 percent in the month of October, which is an all time high since The Great Depression?

SelfGrowth Poll-1

Or Is it possible the people who answered that poll are the ones who only go to the selfgrowth.com site for inspiration and aren’t really concerned about or concentrating on making money online or offline?

As for me, I am thankful for my family and friends, but honestly, I am more thankful today to have a job that pays my bills (including health care insurance).

What about you?

  2. I think you pretty much said it all, Pearl: family and friends come first. Jobs help us nurture these relationships, and yeah, I am thankful for that too. But most of all, I am thankful for knowledge… that special extra ingredient God gave me to help me make the best out of my life. :)

    And I am grateful for love, I’d be nothing without it.

    I am grateful for help – people around me who care enough to be there when I need them.

    I am grateful for honesty and loyalty…

    I guess the list could go on.


  3. I am grateful for life! Just being around, doing what I like to do at the moment — like, looking at the trees outside, making fresh juice for breakfast, and checking out how my friends are doing online — brings joy ^_^

    I am grateful I can make money by helping people.

    I am grateful for my health. Of course. I feel young, strong, and beautiful.

  16. I am thankful for my supportive family, and the freedom this country gives me.

  17. Hi,

    Health, Wealth, Happiness and Freedom.

    Wow that’s amazing that people said Money and Career. Don’t get me wrong I am involved in business and like to have money but these are not what I am most thankful for!

    It’s interesting to ask that question because it shows a couple of things. 1. What are they focused on right now 2. What value they put on other things in their lives.

    I think it’s good to be thankful for all aspects of your life.


  18. Life is something to be thankful for, Jobs and Money is something that you make happen. The bigger picture is money can’t buy the important things like saving your child.

  19. I’m most thankful for family, health and freedom. Stuggling with poor health, being without a family, or living in a country with no freedom of speach, religion or even thought would all be amoung the worst things to bare.
