Giving Gratitute Can Help You Achieve More Out Of Life



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.

Steps to set your intentions

Here is a great article I found that will help you to set your intentions by Dr Deepak Chopra  

Intention is the starting point of every dream. It is the creative power that fulfills all of our needs, whether for money, relationships, spiritual awakening, or love.

Everything that happens in the universe begins with intention. When I decide to buy a birthday present, wiggle my toes, or call a friend, it all starts with intention.

The sages of India observed thousands of years ago that our destiny is ultimately shaped by our deepest intentions and desires. The classic Vedic text known as the Upanishads declares, “You are what your deepest desire is. As your desire is, so is your intention. As your intention is, so is your will. As your will is, so is your deed. As your deed is, so is your destiny.”

An intention is a directed impulse of consciousness that contains the seed form of that which you aim to create. Like real seeds, intentions can’t grow if you hold on to them. Only when you release your intentions into the fertile depths of your consciousness can they grow and flourish. In my book The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, the Law of Intention and Desire lays out the five steps for harnessing the power of intention to create anything you desire.
