Text from video,

Do you watch award ceremonies? Like the Oscars or the Emmy awards? 

Personally, I don’t. It has never really caught my interest. But like French grammar, there is always an exception to the rule.

There is one award ceremony I would recommend to see. It happened more than 20 years ago, in nineteen ninety seven to be precise.

It celebrates the lifetime achievements of a special man: Fred Roger.

He directed and ran a kid’s TV show called “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood”. For more than 33 years he talked to children about self-worth, tolerance and sharing.

And his acceptance speech was far from a plain ‘thank you’. Instead it was a genuine demonstration of humility and gratitude.

He simply asked the audience to join him for the next 10 seconds, and think of the people who “have loved them into being”. 

And everyone went quiet, remembering who made them, who helped them, who loved them. 

Now, if you were asked during an interview: “Who made you the person you are today?” Whose names would you say?

To whom would you express your gratitude? 

Taken in the whirlwind of life, it’s easy to solely focus on the negative, on what we lack, on what we wish we had done differently. 

And we forget what we have. The people that helped us along the way. Our parents, our friends, a teacher, a colleague, a stranger in the street smiling at us.

Simply shifting our focus can almost immediately make us feel happier. This is the power of gratitude.
