What if you could change a situation in an instant?
Do you know about your power to transform any situation in an instant?
That power is gratitude.
Gratitude is not just a cliche, it is your ability to change your perception of a situation or circumstance in any given moment. The moment you change your perception by looking for the things that you are grateful for, you literally gain access to a completely different level of creativity and intelligence.
Science has shown that when you feel grateful, you literally activate different parts of your brain.
Wallace Wattles, the author of The Science of Getting Rich, says it this way, “Gratitude alone can keep you looking toward the All, and prevent you from falling into the error of thinking of the supply as limited…”
So, right now, what is a situation or circumstance that may be causing anxiety in your life? Look at it square in the face and then ask yourself, ‘What can I be grateful for in this situation?” List those things, feel the gratitude.
As you cultivate the feeling of gratitude, ask a follow-up question which is, “What is one thing I can do right where I am with what I have to move this situation forward as I give thanks for everything that came before?”
And go do it!
Here’s to living your dream,
