Do you wake up in the morning saying “Good God Morning” or “Good Morning GOD”?
Same exact words, completely different energy!
Do you ever wake up with a pit in your stomach, shuffle off to the bathroom to take a shower, feeling tired and down? You don't want to go to work, and are already complaining about your job. You get dressed only to find your clothes are way too tight and don't fit and feel right on. You say some negative things in your head about your body, wanting to lose weight. Then you go into the kitchen to make yourself some breakfast while absorbing all the negativity from the newspaper you are reading, and you wonder how you got that agita (indigestion). You then head on out to work and complain about the traffic or mass transit being late and overcrowded. All these things are just building and building up inside of you.
Now you're at work and you hear other people complaining about their kids, their wife, husband, mother in-law or who ever...
You look at your phone messages and notice that your phone bill is overdue which stirs up all kinds of anxiety inside you. This sends you on a spiral of negative thoughts like, there never seems to be enough money at the end of the month. Why can't I keep track of my money and my bills? Why can't I ever get a break?
Finally, you get home from work, still feeling tired and don't have the energy to cook something healthy, so you order a pizza, even though you know you're going to regret it later. The phone rings and it's from a friend who starts talking about the same problems that he talks about every day. Before you know it, you’ve spend over an hour listening to his kvetching ( the Yiddish word for complaining) .
By now it is late and you get ready for bed. You put on the TV to watch the news and fall asleep with all the negative news blaring into your subconscious mind, reinforcing the doom and gloom.
This goes on day after day, week after week, month after month. Before you know it, years have gone by. Your body has gotten more out of shape. You have all sorts of aches and pains, and you're stuck in the same job complaining about the same things! Or God forbid you have developed some sickness.
You see complaining is like a cancer that spreads. You've got to stop it at its source.
Gratitude is considered one of the most powerful forces in the world. But can it really make a difference? Can it change your relationships? Your financial situation? Your health?
What does it really take to harness the power of gratitude? Will it make a difference in your own life? How have you been missing out on this hidden secret force? Find out how to unravel the mysterious power of Gratitude.
So, what if you woke up tomorrow morning feeling great? Your first thoughts are how appreciative you are to have a shower with fresh clean hot water. Instead of reading the newspaper in the morning, you read something inspirational and uplifting. As you commute to work you can invest the time on listening to something on audible to learn something new. When you learn something new you become more valuable not just to yourself but to everyone around you, such as your family, friends and even your co-workers. You get to work and you might not like everything about your job, but you can take time to focus on the positive. Such as, it is providing an income. Being grateful for that income will open up the energy to provide more good things to come into your life. More money, a nicer home, a better job and anything that you want. You will feel motivated to eat healthier because you have more energy. Now you can fit into all those great clothes you've been wanting to wear. People will pick up on your positive attitude and notice how fabulous you look. You won't be wasting your valuable time complaining about life, instead you will be out enjoying life like taking a dance class or something else you always wanted to do but never had the courage to do before. You'll attract other people who lift you up rather that drag you down. You will look better, feel healthier and attract more good things into your life. Once you switch your thoughts from what you don't have to focus on what you do have, everything starts to change for the better.
Once you understand how being grateful is the GREAT connector to more and better things in your life, so many possibilities that you never thought possible before will come your way.
This is how it works:
You will go from disappointment and frustration to appreciation and gratitude.
You will go from desperation to inspiration.
You get what you focus on.
Where your attention goes your energy flows.
When you begin to focus on the positive more positive things come into your life.
Being grateful will help you improve everything in your life.
So how do you get started shifting your energy and become grateful?

There truly is magic in gratitude.
No matter who you are, where you are, or what you have, gratitude works!

According to Rick Hanson PhD,
"There likely are lots of good things you could feel good about even when life seems bleak. Your situation will improve dramatically when you begin to focus on the good things."
Martin Seligman launched the field of “Positive Psychology“. Here began the scientific study emotions such as gratitude, optimism, forgiveness, happiness, compassion and altruism. At the time, this was a revolutionary idea in the field of psychology since most of the data about human emotion had previously focused on “negative psychology” such as mental illness, trauma, addiction and stress.
What we have learned is that cultivating personal attributes fortifies us during times of adversity and emotional turmoil and leads to greater happiness and resilience. Moreover, of all the attributes one can develop, gratitude is most strongly associated with mental health.
Gratitude is our emotion that relates to our ability to feel and express thankfulness and appreciation. Traditionally, the study of this emotion has been relegated to the fields of theology and philosophy. In 2007, Robert Emmons began researching gratitude through a psychological lens. He found that expressing gratitude improves mental, physical and relational well-being. Being grateful also impacts the overall experience of happiness, and these effects tend to be long-lasting.
