Being thankful every day for what you have is a mind altering experience. Try this quick and easy exercise every day. Wake up and immediately say what you are grateful for. It could be as simple as another day on earth or your feet touching the ground. The ability to breathe… or you could get more involved – and be grateful for a specific person, condition, thing, whatever it is in your life that you are grateful for.
There are half full and half empty people all around us. The half full group has their glass filled with gratitude. Gratitude is one of those emotions that can increase wellbeing and happiness among those who deliberately create it. Gratitude can also increase energy, optimism and empathy; all characteristics of positive happy people.
Imagine being aware of all the good things that surround you. Imagine how much easier it would be to handle diversity and opposition when you have this upbeat attitude? Imagine having a purpose in life, an appreciation for those around you, and a willingness to take action to show your feeling of gratitude.
Those are the ingredients to a more fulfilled and balanced life. Focus on the big and the small things to show your gratitude. You will find that as you express this new attitude, you will emit a positive energy or aura that will attract into your life exactly what you need to proceed and succeed.
Gratitude is a state of mind that we all have access to. It takes practice and with practice, it reaps great benefits.
