Gratitude is a powerful tool that we all should be putting into practice in order to be able to improve all aspects of our lives (Health, Money, Relationship… ). It’s just a matter of being happy with our actual condition, even if it’s not yet what we really want. We have to commit ourselves to cultivate this important habit. – Well, what is the law of gratitude?
Today I own what yesterday was a mere dream, but tomorrow I’ll be struggling to get something new, instead of really enjoying what I now have. In fact, if it were possible for us to buy an Island, soon we would be trying to buy a Helicopter to fly in and out… then a city, a country… and we would continue to hold the “spring” till we were able to govern the Universe.
We all have an astonishing power to attract more of whatever it is that we are manifesting gratitude for.
However, every single day we complain about not having the car and/or the house of our dream, about not having enough money to enjoy those systematically postponed vacations. You name it, we moan about it.
In our effort to get as much as we can, we forget to manifest gratitude for what we have already acquired. Is it a bicycle, a car, a house? And what about our health, kids, and family as a whole?
Also show gratitude for being an intelligent person. In fact, God offered you his most powerful creation; your Brain.
Do you want to experiment with the power of Gratitude? Whenever you feel too lazy to start a task, pretend that you have already finished that same task. Take time to enjoy the feeling of accomplishment, then suddenly and without really realizing it, you’ll be already in progress, and finally feeling better about yourself.
At this point, our conclusion is that gratitude creates a sense of happiness, thus helping us to manage difficult situations, such as this:
– It was Sunday, and early in the morning I woke up suddenly with a lot of people in front of my house, all of them talking out loud at the same time. After a long week, I felt that I deserved a good rest that morning. My first reaction was to go outside and ask them to stay away from my door; however, a light shined in my head – Well, I live in such a beautiful place. Thus, it’s normal that people pass by, stop for a while to enjoy the landscape, and of course spend some time chatting with their friends.
This helped me feel better.
An important thing to remember is that a state of gratitude actually helps us to save money. And the reason is simple; as soon as we learn to appreciate whatever it is that we have, our desire to buy new stuff is dramatically reduced, and at the same time, we start converting ourselves into a “money magnet”.
Have you manifested gratitude today? If not, go ahead and do it right now.
