Another nice anecdote from The Difference Maker; John C Maxwell was quoting from a Peanuts Cartoon.
It was Thanksgiving and everyone were feasting on a turkey while Snoopy was given dog food. Snoopy thought, “Just because I’m born a dog, I’m given dog food while others are eating turkey for dinner”. Then he walked back to his kernel and climb to the top; as he thought through it for a while, he realised, “It could have been worst. I might have been born a turkey.”
Yea, so count your blessings and appreciate your status.
