What are you most grateful for in your life right now? I never used to think of things such as having a roof over my head, food on my table has been something to be grateful for. But as I got older, and seeing people in situations worse off than me, that’s when gratitude started to sink in.
You see when you’re young, you just live, you just get on with life, you don’t think about how things be or how they get there.
I want you to take a moment and think about all the small things in your life that you are thankful for, for being able to wake up this morning, for being able to have sight to read this blog post, or maybe you’re grateful for good health, a roof over your head
When you wake up each morning and are thankful and grateful for the little things in life, you will notice your life beginning to change. You will also notice more and more things to be grateful for.
When you are truly thankful and grateful for something your energy changes, if you were sad, or negative before, you will notice that you now feel more energised and positive.
Practice gratitude each and every day, it will keep you uplifted positive and more energised.
Gratitude can can help you achieve your goals
Once you have set up a daily practice of being grateful, notably first thing in the morning just after waking. You might then go on to be thankful and grateful for the goals that you have set yourself for that day, but believe that you have already achieved them and be thankful and grateful to having achieved them.
Your mind is a powerful weapon which can be used to help you or to pull you down. Most people do not know how to use the mind in a positive way, and therefore it is left to rule itself . Are you giving your mind instructions on a daily basis as to what you want to achieve, where you want to be by the end of the day, and telling your mind thank you for helping me to get to where I want to be, is the most powerful bit of instruction you can say to yourself .
More importantly, why are you are telling your mind, or your brain these things, you should also feel as if you’ve already achieved it be truly grateful and experience how you feel During and after achieving your goal.
By putting this feeling out there you are vibrating your thoughts your feelings and your goals, and likewise the vibrations will come back to you which are on the same wave length. This is how goals are achieved.
To help you stay focused you can practice the following:
- Look at three things you are grateful for each day
- Look at three things that you will do that will make a difference to your day
- Make a note of practising gratitude today and every day.
Let me know how you get on practising gratitude. I personally keep a journal of all the things I am grateful for and writing this as soon as I feel grateful for something that has come up in my life.
