Is it true that the more grateful you are, the more you get out of life?

    Absolutely, I think this is true.  It means that you are happy without needing more.  Some people "have it all" and still aren't happy, while others that have next to nothing are very content with life.  Not that we shouldn't strive for bigger and better, but be happy with what we do have smile

    I feel that, that is true. It makes sense that the more you appreciate what you have in life (money and other material things aside) and don't take it for granted, the happier you are.

    I think that is very true.  It is hard to be negative when you feel gratitude most of the time. It is a hard lesson to learn though.  I find that negativity is such an easy habit to begin and a difficult one to quit.

    It depends on what you mean by "getting out of life".  Sometimes the most grateful people are those who have relatively little because they get joy money can't buy and that is getting something out of life.  People who are wallowing in money often do not realize how fortunate they are and thus are ungrateful.
