The more you express gratitude for what you have, the more you will have to express gratitude for.
Having an attitude of gratitude will make all the difference to our happiness and success. Most people go through life focusing on what they don't want and don't have, thereby attracting more of the same into their lives. Developing an attitude of gratitude changes our focus to what we do want and do have, attracting more good into our lives. It's one of the most rewarding habits we can develop because we increase not only those things that we want, but also our appreciation of life in general. We become happier, healthier and wealthier.
A starting place is to make a habit of counting your blessings everyday. Consider the following: Do you have two eyes that work? How about two hands, two feet, two ears, two kidneys? There are many who don't.
We are all so blessed in so many ways. We live in countries where we are free to read what we want, say what we want, travel where we want, own property, and earn living. We have access to shelter(homes), water, electricity, medical care, retirement benefits, shops full of food and clothing, and much more. We have families who love us and friends who care about us.
Best of all, we have ability to dream and to turn those dreams into reality. Today it is never been easier to turn a good idea into money. In fact there are many who have become incredibly wealthy doing just that. Think of Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, Mukesh Ambani, etc. With just one good idea, a positive attitude, and lots of dedication and hard work, each of these men has become fabulously wealthy. What's stopping you?
We are surrounded by amazing people who will inspire us, whether in person, in books or on television. There is an abundance of information available to help us create happy, healthy and wealthy lives for ourselves. All we have to do is make the effort and time to put it to use.
Make it habit to start and end every day by consciously thinking of all the things you can be grateful for. In this difficult times where we are surrounded by bad news in this year, we have to stay positive and make this attitude of gratitude.
