You’ll never understand the power of gratitude unless you try it. But here’s something to consider if you want a free and easy way to change a negative attitude.
We now have scientific proof from some recent studies performed at the University of California, Davis that focusing on being grateful improves quality of life and stimulates progress toward important goals.
Gratitude is now a science! And all you have to do to become one of the first students of the new science of gratitude is explore how an attitude of gratitude can change your life.
The Ultimate Key to Your Success
You may be surprised to hear that most people won’t use this simple approach, even though just about anyone can do it, it’s completely free, and it may be the ultimate key to success in life. Why? Because you have to change negative thinking habits and this requires effort and perseverance.
It’s not that having an attitude of gratitude is difficult, but it’s probably different from the most frequent thoughts that go through your head now. If you’re familiar with the Law of Attraction, you’ve probably heard that every thought and feeling carries a vibration.
Love, joy, and gratitude are the highest vibrations you can experience. On the other end of the spectrum, you find negative thoughts and feelings like fear, hostility, resentment, anger, and hatred.
The key to success is this. You can wipe out a negative attitude by shifting your focus to gratitude as often as possible. To confirm the power of gratitude now, focus on something you are grateful for and notice what happens to your fears and concerns.
The high vibration of gratitude virtually eliminates all of these concerns. In fact, it puts you into a more resourceful state, so you can find solutions to the challenges you face.
How to Shift into the Vibration of Gratitude
Some of the best times to focus on gratitude are at night as you are drifting off to sleep and in the morning when you rise to a new day. There’s something to be said about the idea of getting up on the right side of the bed, because the attitude you set out with at the beginning of the day tends to set the pace for the remainder of the day.
It’s most powerful to set aside a piece of time in the morning to focus on the day ahead and express gratitude. Ways of doing this include journaling, sharing gratitude thoughts with your family at breakfast, and thinking or even voicing your gratitude as you drive to work.
And you can be grateful for anything, however big or small. To add more power to your gratitude study, you can express gratitude both for the blessings you now have in your life and for the ones that are coming.
So if you want to have a positive day, you can express gratitude for the positive things that are going to happen to you that day. Or if you want to meet new people, you can express gratitude that they are coming into your life. You may be amazed at the results.
The Final Key
KEEP DOING IT. People often start out with a lot of enthusiasm about changing habits, only to find themselves back where they started after a few weeks or months. You have to make expressions of gratitude part of your daily life. Having people around you who reinforce your goal of expressing gratitude and creating a better life can make the difference. Whatever you do, just stay with it!
