attitude to gratitude



At the age of 18, I made up my mind to never have

another bad day in my life. I dove into the endless sea

of gratitude from which I’ve never emerged


-DR. PATCH ADAMS



Gratitude develops an emotion that eliminates anger and fear. Remember, if you are grateful, you can't be angry simultaneously. You can't be fearful and grateful simultaneously. It’s impossible!


Many people say they are grateful, but they don’t take time to be grateful. If we don't continuously do something each day to plant the right seeds in our mind, then the weeds of life (frustration, anger, stress, loneliness) tend to creep in. You don't have to plant weeds, they grow automatically


Gratitude is the quality of being thankful. The moment you master the art of gratitude in any circumstances is the moment from then on, you'll never have to play the victim mentality.


Gratitude is simply choosing to be thankful. Practicing gratitude is living a thankful lifestyle. However, like with most things that require intention, living a life of gratitude takes practice. It really is choosing a perspective that over time becomes easier and more comfortable as you live it. Some great ways to start getting yourself used to being thankful, is to incorporate intentional thankfulness throughout your day


1. Have an abundance mentality : There comes many times in our lives when we can't afford to buy the things we wish the most. Instead of being upset and saying, “I can't afford it." Say to yourself, “I'm thankful for the things I have right now. Let's make a plan on how to buy the things I'm dreaming for.” Working on turning dreams to reality.


2. Practice the Emotions multiplyer : Our thoughts are nothing but Vibrations. This vibration increases exponentially. When you have a good idea, the brain multiples that and provides you more good ideas. When you have a negative thought, the brain multiples that and provides you more negative thoughts. Thus, having a list of things you're grateful for will surely keep the negative aside.


3. Appreciate little things : I close my eyes for three minutes to reflect on what Iam grateful for. I not only make a point to notice but also deeply feel an appreciation for the little things that make life rich. Might it be the company of your kids, the profession you are into, the car you travel, the friends you have, the love you possess, the journeys you do, the books you read etc. If you start seriously counting these little little feel good factors of your life, it would automatically develop an emotion of gratitude.


Say “I can do better", or “I deserve better", and still feel gratitude in your heart for the silver linings, along with the obvious positives you have to be grateful for.


Stand guard at the door of your mind, and you alone decide what thoughts and beliefs you let into your life. They will shape whether you feel rich or poor, cursed or blessed.
