Say a prayer of gratitude every day for what you have and for what you will receive. I suggest doing this in the morning and at night before you go to bed. In the morning, offer up gratitude for being alive another day, for the sun or the rain, for the job you will go to or the opportunity to apply for another job, for your home, for you family, for the meager bowl of cereal that is your breakfast, for whatever degree of health you enjoy, etc.
Enjoy, feel and accept: This is the foremost principle in hypnosis. You can appreciate what you have when you fully accept all that you have. Hypnosis says a person must equally accept all that he possesses and also what he not own. Instead of feeling bad for you do not own, feel happy for what you own.
Most people do not realize the benefits of gratitude. When we sit and think about all the things we want but don’t have we set ourselves up in a downward spiral of disappointment and negative thinking which can lead to overwork, and depression. Gratitude, on the other hand, lifts our spirits and gives us a clearer focus on life as it really is.
Once you begin to feel the power that gratitude offers you begin to become aware of the ways you can help others. Being grateful brings about positive change in the lives of everyone that you touch. By showing an attitude of gratitude, you are improving the environment in which you are cultivating thoughts and feelings.
An attitude of gratitude can enhance our lives in numerous ways. People who are grateful tend to be happier, healthier and more fulfilled. Being grateful can help people cope with stress. Therefore, it is essential to practice giving gratitude on a daily basis.
Gratitude is one of the most important things you can implement in your daily life. Think about it, when you have forgiven someone, or you are happy with your life situation, life seems so much easier. No matter how bad life may seem, there is always something that you can be grateful for. If you can not think of anything, you need to take some time out of your life.
Having much to be thankful for does not diminish the reality of sadness, disappointment, or discouragement, or the need to feel those feelings at times. You can, though, intentionally reframe painful or disappointing events as opportunities for growth and learning, and deliberately look for the silver linings.
