Well, friends, research has shown Gratitude is the single most desirable quality in the modern work arena. Imagine the things we have to be thankful for; we have a family, we have a job, we have food on our table and there is no great war, drought, famine around.
The universal law says once we are grateful for all the things we have, we will attract more of the same. At any point, we can either bemoan the stuff we lack or we can thank almighty for this incarnation, for a supportive education that has enabled us to earn our livings. For a wonderful opportunity to shape our destiny. For a chance to make the world around us better than what we got.
Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues but the parent of all others. When you are grateful, fear disappears and abundance appears. Gratitude opens your eyes to the limitless potential of the universe. Gratitude and love are always multiplied when you give freely. It is an infinite source of contentment and prosperous energy.
Each day is a new opportunity to live your life to the fullest. In each waking day, you will find scores of blessings and opportunities for positive change. Do not let your today be stolen by the unchangeable past or the indefinite future. Today is a new day. There is a strange comfort in knowing that no matter what happens today, the sun will rise again tomorrow. The most beautiful moments in life are moments when you are expressing your joy, not when you are seeking it.
A grateful mindset can set you free from the prison of disempowerment and the shackles of misery. Recalling gratitude is a sure way to get our life back on track. Opening our eyes to affirm gratitude grows the garden of our inner abundance, just as standing close to a fire eventually warms our hearts.
The greatest blessings of mankind are within us and within our reach. A wise man is content with his lot, whatever it may be, without wishing for what he has not. Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance. Free yourself from the complexities and drama of your life. Simplify. Look within. Within ourselves, we all have the gifts and talents we need to fulfill the purpose we’ve been blessed with. It’s up to us to choose contentment and thankfulness now and to stop imagining that we have to have everything perfect before we’ll be happy.
In normal life, we hardly realize how much more we receive than we give, and life cannot be rich without such gratitude. It is so easy to overestimate the importance of our own achievements compared with what we owe to the help of others. The problem that we have with a victim mentality is that we forget to see the blessings of the day. Because of this, our spirit is poisoned instead of nourished. Take time daily to reflect on how much you have. It may not be all that you want but remember someone somewhere is dreaming to have what you have.
To be grateful is to recognize the Love of God in everything He has given us. And He has given us everything. Every breath we draw is a gift of His love, every moment of existence is a grace, for it brings with it immense graces from Him. Gratitude, therefore, takes nothing for granted, is never unresponsive, is constantly awakening to new wonder and to praise of the goodness of God. For the grateful person knows that God is good, not by hearsay but by experience. And that is what makes all the difference. Enjoy every moment of the journey, and appreciate where you are at this moment instead of always focusing on how far you have to go.
