Hi. I always believe by narrating stories we can engage the participants on motivation.
The following anecdote may be useful for this. through you view on this.
The Intelligent servant:
When he was staying at an air base in Africa, author Saint-Exupéry passed the hat among his friends because a Moroccan servant wanted to return to his home town. He managed to collect a thousand francs.
One of the pilots flew the servant as far as Casablanca and told the following when he came back:
– As soon as he arrived he went to have dinner in the very best restaurant, handed out generous tips, paid for drinks all round and bought dolls for the children in his village. This man hadn’t the slightest notion of economy.
– Quite the opposite – answered Saint-Exupéry.
“He knew that the best investment in the world is people. Spending in that way, he managed to win all over again the respect of his countrymen, and they will offer him a job. After all, only a winner can be so generous.”

What a way of thinking - both positive and negative - on the same incidence! Really good to read.
================================================== =================
A famous writer was in his study room. He picked up his pen and started writing:
**Last year, I had a surgery and my gall bladder was removed.
I had to stay stuck to the bed due to this surgery for a long time.
**The same year I reached the age of 60 years and had to give up my favourite job.
I had spent 30 years of my life in this publishing company.
**The same year I experienced the sorrow of the death of my father.
**And in the same year my son failed in his medical exam because he had a car accident.
He had to stay in bed at hospital with the cast on for several days.
The destruction of car was another loss.
At the end he wrote:
Alas! It was such a bad year!
When the writer's wife entered the room, she found her husband looking sad lost in his thoughts.
From behind his back she read what was written on the paper. She left the room silently and
came back with another paper andplaced it on side of her husband's writing
When the writer saw that paper, he found this written on it:
**Last year I finally got rid of my gall bladder due to
which I had spent years in pain.
**I turned 60 with sound health and got retired from my job.
Now I can utilize my time to write something better with
more focus and peace.
**The same year my father, at the age of 95, without depending on
anyone or without any critical condition met his Creator.
**The same year, God blessed my son with a new life.
My car was destroyed but my son stayed alive without
getting any disability.
At the end she wrote:
This year was an immense blessing of God and
it passed well!

The same incidents but two different viewpoints.
If we ponder with this viewpoint that what could have happened more,
we would truly become thankful to the Almighty.
In daily lives we must see that its not happiness that makes
us grateful but gratefulness that makes us happy.
There is always, always, always something to be thankful for.
Stay Blessed ?
