GRATITUDE, THE KEY TO THE LAW OF ATTRACTION MAY SEEM LIKE AN INTELLECTUAL EXERCISE. BUT I HAVE NOTICED THE SECRET IS TO LIVE THE EMOTION, NOT JUST KNOW IT
Every morning I would wake up and focus on what I was thankful for. My family, friends, the opportunities I have, the weather. All sort of things. I have done this daily more or less the last year but the other day I think I really cracked the secret.
Visualization is a powerful thing but like a mental muscle you have to build it. Over and over I would connect and then disconnect to the emotion of gratitude. I would get distracted or I would lose momentum. Distracted can be many things, TV, attitude, your situation, your surroundings, life in general. However, the key to infinite peace and joy is the LIVE the feeling of gratitude, no matter what happens.
It didn’t start this way. I had so many responsibilities etc that I had to tend to. What I noticed was when I focused more on my value of myself, the “responsibilities” either disappeared or became less significant in my life. They did not go away, they just didn’t drag on my attention as they used to. I am not telling everyone to shun their existence but have a look at what is important to you and everything else becomes so much easier.
How do you do this? Well I set small goals. Last year I decided anything that I watched had to make me laugh. Obviously, this cut out a whole bunch of time that freed me up to do either more productive things or find more to laugh at. Laughing often came to just laughing at myself and the crazy things I come up with. And do you know what? MANY of my friends said they had seen a NOTICEABLE change in my presence. This year, I stepped things up and want to focus on JOY. I’m looking forward to this. I really think it will be easy.
One thing I did notice is I had almost forgotten how to feel good. Hence the new series of “Feel good stories”. I want people to remember what it feels like to be inspired and joyful. That way you can remember and focus on that. It’s a goal.
I find that is gets easier and easier to stay in a PERMANENT state of gratitude if that is our goal. A beautiful side effect of that is life becomes INFINITELY simpler and less troublesome. Even to the point that things seem to come me. For example, I attracted copy of The Secret from the MAKERS of the movie. But that’s another story.
Take a look at the following video. Notice how you FEEL when you see it. Aim to be in that state as often and as long as possible. I think you will get what I mean.
