I hate it but I am grateful for it (22Feb2015)

The following is a list of 10 things I don’t like but I am grateful grateful for, this is writing in response to Claudia Azula Altucher’s book “Become an Idea Machine”. She suggested we do a little exercise everyday to train our “idea muscle”, so I did it. This is a response to her first exercise “Solve 10 Hard Gratitude Problems”.

I-am-grateful-for-sentence

  1. I hate the noise outside of my room but I am grateful for that because they wake me up more naturally than an alarm clock in the morning.
  2. I hate the lack of privacy of my room but I am grateful for that because the big windows also provide me with a lot of sun light during the day to motivate me.
  3. I hate the lack of transportation in where I live but I am grateful for that because it makes driving more pleasurable than a busy area.
  4. I hate the lack of transportation in where I live but I am grateful that it forces me to walk when I have no other option, great free exercise.
  5. I hate rude customers of my business but I am grateful that sometimes they are the only social interaction I have for the day outside of my family.
  6. I hate students that are lazy and unmotivated but I am grateful for that because I know how important motivation is and how hard it is to become a good teacher.
  7. I hate the low tech orientation of Hong Kong but I am grateful for that because it allows me to expand my business with not so strong competitors, so I can flex our muscle and have immediate gratifications.
  8. I hate low quality food from chained  chinese  restaurant outlets but I am grateful for that because they successfully deter me from consuming the unnecessary calories.
  9. I hate electronics with low battery capacity but I am grateful for that because I can allocate time more efficiently and lessen the strains on my eyeball.
  10. I hate managing mess because its time consuming and physically challenging, however managing it stimulates the brain and promotes “ideas sex” thus
