6 Reasons Someone Wishes They Were You


How often do you pause to
appreciate your life? How
often do you stop dead in
your tracks and think,
“Goodness, I have it pretty
darn good”?
Even when life is far from
perfect, it’s important to
keep things in perspective.
Many people in this world
wish they had what you
have. Here’s why:
1.  You are educated
enough to read this.
If you’re reading this, you
have something brilliant to
be thankful for. It’s called
an education. Believe it or
not, there are roughly 774
million people in the world
who don’t have this
ability. That’s a significant
percentage of the human
Literacy is the bridge that
closes the gap between
discouragement and
confidence, between
confusion and
understanding, and between
sadness and hope. It’s the
greatest platform of
personal growth, and the
means by which every
human being can realize
their full potential.
Isn’t it crazy to think about
how many people aren’t
educated enough to make
use of this basic human
2.  You are reasonably
In other words, if you got
sick today you could
Never underestimate the
gift of your health. It’s the
greatest wealth you will
ever own. It’s the
foundation for every
chance at happiness and
success life has to offer.
Your body is the only place
you will truly ever live.
If you’re lucky enough to
have a body that’s in good
health, be wise enough to
keep it that way. Doing so
is easier than most of us
make it. Too often we
focus on the negatives. We
think about how hard it
will be and all the sacrifices
that must be made. But one
of life’s greatest joys and
one the primary benefits of
good health comes from
focusing on the positives of
a healthy lifestyle – what
we gain through living and
feeling well.
The secret to good health
for both the mind and body
is to live in the present
moment openly and
earnestly, to eat lightly,
breathe deeply, exercise
daily, cultivate happiness
through acceptance, and
maintain a general interest
in whatever it is you spend
the majority of your time
3.  You have the
freedom to choose.
If you often worry about
what you’re going to do
with your life – your
career, your family, the
next step, etc., be grateful.
All details aside, this means
you have ambition, passion,
drive, and the freedom to
make your own decisions.
In the space between your
yes and no, there’s
liberation. It’s the
difference between the path
you walk and the one
others want you to walk;
it’s the gap between who
you could become and who
you want to be; it’s the
legroom of free choice – a
liberty that should never be
taken for granted.
4.  You have enough
wealth to live
You didn’t go to sleep
hungry last night. You
awoke this morning with a
roof over your head. You
had a choice of what
clothes to wear. You have
access to clean drinking
water and electricity. You
are online right now.
You have plenty to be
comfortable. Being wealthy
is a mindset. Be sure you
understand this. Want less
and appreciate more. Read

5.  You have a home.
Home isn’t a physical
structure, or a specific
location on a map. Home is
wherever the people you
love are, whenever you’re
with them – even if your
encounter is virtual. It’s
not a defined place, but a
space in your heart and
mind that builds upon itself
like little bricks being
stacked to create something
stable that you take with
you for your entire life,
wherever you may go.
The love and admiration
shared amongst friends,
lovers, and family members
is a true gift that provides a
shelter for the spirit as it
grows. If you have this
kind of love in your life –
like so many of us do – you
are one of the lucky ones.
6.  You still have a
Time is precious.
Everything you know is
ending. Not yet, but soon
What you must decide is
what you want to do with
the time you have left. If
your lifespan were to
expire this evening at the
stroke of midnight, would
you be at ease with how
you have spent your time
today? This is not a
rhetorical question.
Nothing is guaranteed.
Someday, like many others
are experiencing right this
second, your time will
expire. Don’t be afraid. Be
alive in this moment and
make the most of it. Right
now is your chance. Read

Final Thoughts
You and I are extremely
fortunate. There are many
people in this world who
wish they had what we
So tell me: What are you
most grateful for today?
