The Attitude of Gratitude

“Gratitude in advance is the most powerful creative force in the universe”

Neale Donald Walsh

Look around you, look very close, you will begin to see that in today’s society many people are not grateful for what they have, as a matter of fact they behave in a totally opposite way. We live in a society where many people are complaining about their life and circumstances. A way out of this, offered by the elite is to keep attempting to make one self better, through the possession of materialistic items, however, this does not satisfy us. It actually makes us want more and thereby not appreciate what we currently have. We live in a World where a lot of us (me included) are never truly grateful for the miracle of life, and for the fact we are alive… right here, right now.

Why / How is Gratitude so powerful?!

Employing gratitude is an EXTREMELY powerful process. When you stop, reflect on life and be truly grateful for what you have your life will begin to change. You will genuinely be happy. Gone will be the days of claiming to be a happy once a future goal is reached, you can choose to be happy NOW.

Gratitude is the key to happiness. Daily practice of gratitude can ironically allow you to reach your goals faster. Ever heard the saying ‘fake it till you make it’? Well this is similar to gratitude, be happy now, be grateful now, feel how you would in your ideal life now, and guess what? One of the most important steps towards your goal is achieved. Be grateful for the flowers outside, your family helping you out, a stranger giving you way in traffic, and even for the food on your plate. Some of the most happiest people are those with nothing at all to their name. They have nothing, yet somehow, have everything.

How to practice gratitude

Practising gratitude is a very simple process and need not be complicated, however, there are many different ways to practice gratitude. Here are some of my favourites.

  • Gratitude Journal – Every day, find three new things to be grateful about and write them down in as much detail as possible. Whenever feeling ungrateful, simply refer back to your gratitude journal.

    Here are some examples
  • Speak gratitude into existence – As you go about your day, attempt to notice as many things to be grateful for as possible. When you see something, marvel at it, do not judge it, simply be grateful for its beauty, and say it out loud.

    How beautiful
  • Give more thanks – Saying thank you is one, if not the most powerful form of gratitude you can employ. Say thank you for everything. For your life, for the postman delivering you valuable letters, your mother for her home-cooked foods. Say thank you more, and you will receive more.

I am

Lastly, attempt to always see life with the attitude of gratitude. Be genuinely grateful, and you will be happy, I guarantee it.

How to pick yourself up after failure

Failing is never final until you accept it as a reality. Do not allow the failure of something to define you and stay permanent…

 

Failure is a part of life

Life is full of many obstacles and many a time these obstacles require repeated attempts to overcome. Without failure, life would simply be, a failure. Failing or failure allows us to grow as individuals and learn from our mistakes. Going forward in the future it helps us attack that same facet in a more intelligent way, yielding success. If we were to go through life without failing at anything then guess what? We would never achieve ANYTHING.

So, how do I deal with failure…?

There are many ways to deal with failure, but first and foremost is to not allow failure to stop you in your tracks. Never let failure make you quit at something (for good) otherwise it will be come permanent.

Here are some tips to deal with failure on an emotional and physical level

  • Learn from your mistakes – The definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over again expecting a successful outcome. Failing at something allows us to determine what we did wrong and what can be improved for next time. Observe how you handed a certain failed situation and look at what you could do differently next time. Over time this persistent assessment will bring success and teach you many things about life, and yourself
  • Pick yourself straight back up – The best thing you can do after failing at something is to get back up and try, try again. Its important not to dwell on something which has gone wrong (although brief periods of reflection are essential) as it can lead to depression (which I will talk about it another article). Dust yourself off, get up, and NEVER GIVE UP!
  •  Realise it is building your character and passion – When you fail at something, it can either make you more hungry to achieve it in the future, or demoralised; both are great character building traits. Firstly with regards to your passion; failure can make you more hungry and help you realise your true passion. The repeated failures may allow you to build a solid will, and in the process realise your true heartfelt passion. And then being demoralised. Sure it can hurt, and you may quit. But those dark moments are when all the work is done, those moments are the times no one see’s, they can just speculate whilst you at standing these, with your hand raised, successful.
