Develop an Attitude of Gratitude

“Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.”Brian Tracy

It’s interesting when chatting with successful individuals, among many common traits, gratitude for all of the blessings in their life seems to be universal amongst all of them.Why is it then that most people spend the majority of their time lamenting their current position or lack of success instead of affirming all they’re grateful for in order to open themselves up to receiving more of what they want in order to further advance themselves and their careers.

Let’s face it, we’re not always going to be satisfied with where we find ourselves in life; as Jim Rohn used to say, ‘we can’t control the direction of the wind, but we can control the set of the sail’, and irrespective of whether our lives are filled with success or failure, the first step towards achieving, doing and becoming more is to find and focus on everything we’re grateful for in the present.

Wherever you find yourself today, right now, know that you’re truly blessed, you’re blessed to be in a position where you can better dream of a better life for yourself and your family and can take action towards realising that dream; just realise, what you focus on, expands, so ensure you’re focussing on what you do want and what you are grateful for, not that which you don’t.

Ask yourself today, ‘What am I grateful for in my life, right now?, and once you’ve listed them push yourself further and ask, What could I be grateful for in my life right now? and What should I be grateful for in my life right now?’

Have an Outstanding Day!
