The Practice and Power of Gratitude
An abundant source of power
A year has passed since I wrote my note.
Last year I wrote in my journal:
"The reason I am so passionate about success principles is I truly believe they would have changed my life 30 years ago. But, that's my lesson. Right now I'm grateful that I get to explore the depths of success."
Today, I am still grateful. It's almost unbelievable that I live in a time and place where this is even possible. That's what gratitude does. It brings us to a point where we see the blessings in life as the miracles they are. We live, move, and have our being in the miraculous.
Gratitude doesn't artificially make things greater than they are. It reveals the power of what we truly have. And we all have access to this power!
I'm grateful that I get to explore the depths of success. For me, success is the wisdom and way of living a life that is deeply meaningful. It's the excitement of exploring the secret depths of the soul.
Gratitude is empowering.
Gratitude is a Power
Gratitude is an empowering emotion. Gratitude calms the seas, allows the sun to shine through dark clouds, and directs the wind to fill our sails so that we may be fully alive and well.
Allow the power of gratitude to warm your soul, and fill your sails.
Gratitude Opens the Gates
When we open the gates of gratitude it drives out the life stealing powers of regret, resentment, and jealousy.
Gratitude opens the gates to empowering thoughts of wonder, possibility, and curiosity. It is the perfect weather for the soul to thrive, grow and experience abundance.
Gratitude is a Practice
Who doesn't want to feel good all the time? But the truth is, feeling good doesn't happen to anyone by default. And we don't have to wait for good fortune in order to feel good again.
Feeling good is a practice. It requires knowledge, self awareness, and work.
Good practices create good rewards.
The Benefits of Gratitude
When we are consciously aware of the positive impact gratitude has on our emotional state we will see the benefits of living in gratitude.
Gratitude is a key component of the mind of abundance. The mind of abundance is a carefully crafted personal philosophy of empowering beliefs that enable positive behaviors.
Gratitude has a key effect that few people talk about:
Gratitude creates an empowered emotional state that stirs up desire to pursue our dreams and grow into our potential.
The master dream builder understands every emotion and knows how to use them for good on the clear days and through the storms of life.
Gratitude is a conscious and deliberate practice that helps make dreams come true.
