The Attitude Of Gratitude

It is very simple. Be grateful for what you have and more things to be grateful for will come to you. More situations to be grateful for will bless your existence. Everything that I have been talking about is simple. It's the conscious application which means repeatedly doing these things over and over until they become subconsciously programed that is the part where everyone has difficulty. Those that stick with it and push though and break the barrier see the side of bliss we all want. Some quit. Which one will you be?

Start now and write a list of as many things as you can to be grateful for. It can be the toothbrush you have, or the nice comfy socks you love to wear to bed. The stuffed animal your girlfriend got you or dad's meatballs. It doesn't matter. Every day add to the list. If something repeats, who cares. What happened today that you were grateful for? Write it down. Then tomorrow do it again. You don't have to write it down. Just notice it when you see it or feel it or think about it. Say "I am thankful for" or "I am grateful for" or "Thank You for."

It really doesn't matter how you put it. I love the part in the movie "The Secret" where the man finds himself a nice rock and keeps it in his pocket and whenever he puts his hand in his pocket and feels it, whether intentional or not, he finds something to be grateful for. Now you can do this and put it in your pocket, ladies, you can put it in your purse. But I have a better idea.

How about we all find something we are grateful for when we use our cell phones. I mean how many of us grab our cell phone at least 50 times per day. Can you challenge yourself to say one thing you are grateful for when you go to use it? Ok I challenge you. Like I said before, the difficult part is consciously applying it until is become automatic for you.

Be grateful for anything and everything you can think of in your life...Focusing on that will bring more into your life. It is the same as being happy for the things you have. If you focus on what you don't have and complain you don't have it you will end up causing events in your life to bring you more of what you don't have. Try it for yourself and see. No don't do that. Just focus on the things you have and more will come.

I am grateful for everyone who reads these blog posts.
Bless You All,
