Gratitude is both a skill and a practice. The better we become at it, the better our lives will be.
In the book, The Science of Getting Rich, author Wallace Wattles wrote a whole chapter on gratitude. In it he said, “When good things come to us, the more grateful we fix our mind on the Supreme Power, the more good things we will receive — and the more rapidly they will come. The reason for this is simply that the mental attitude of gratitude draws the mind into close touch with the source from which the blessing comes.”
It has almost been a decade now since the movie, The Secret, came out and in the movie, all the teachers interviewed spoke of the importance of having a regular gratitude practice.
After watching the movie, I decided to adopt a daily gratitude practice and I continue to learn and experience the power of gratitude. I have no doubt that adopting the practice of being grateful each day has:
- Improved my mindset.
- Allowed me to see things from different perspectives a lot easier.
- Created better relationships with people.
- Helped alleviate stress a lot easier.
- Made me truly appreciate all that I have in life.
