“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” – John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) 35th president of the United States
I always treat Thanksgiving Day here in America as a day to reflect. A day to reflect on everything in my life, both personally and professionally… No matter how big or small that I am grateful for. I count my blessings for not only the more obvious things such as gaining a new client, but the things I typically take for granted such as simply being alive.
As a matter of fact, I’ve found that since I began using the power of gratitude and made it a daily habit, I began attracting a better quality of everything into my life. I’ve become more magnetic to the things I desire. I’ve gained more clarity and focus on what’s really important to me. My life has become more purposeful and enjoyable!
My wish is that everyone, and that includes you, would be able to experience the pure bliss that I’m experiencing right now… today.
So how can you get started on this journey? Here’s a quick little exercise for you… grab a pen and paper, go to a quiet place, spend a few minutes and jot down at least 10 things that you are grateful for today… right now. Consider people, places, and things from both your personal and professional life. Also jot down why you’re grateful for them. This will certainly bring forth a renewed appreciation… at least it always does for me when I do this exercise.
Want more love in your life? Be truly grateful for the love that shows up in your life now regardless of the source and I firmly believe that you will attract more love.
Want more clients for your business? Be truly grateful for the clients you have now and clearly understand why you’re grateful for them and I firmly believe that you will attract more and better clients.
Want to earn more money? Be truly grateful for the money you’re receiving now… treat it with the respect it deserves and spend it wisely and I firmly believe that you will attract more of it into your life.
The key here is to not be attached to how you believe that something’s supposed to show up for you or any specific result. Just have faith and trust that what you focus on expands. A little patience here also helps.
So in closing please remember that “practice makes perfect”. In other words, having an “attitude of gratitude”, everyday, is the surest way to attract more of the things you want in your life, into your life. And also remember that the thrill is in the journey not the destination, so take the wheel and enjoy the ride!
