Gratitude is a Means to Happiness and Success

It might sound silly to some of you, but gratitude is a legitimate strategy for achieving happiness and success. We all struggle and have bad days, but if we can find appreciation for every blessing in our life, it will attract positive energy! If we focus on what we are grateful for, it will shift our state of being from negative to positive and bring you to a plane of higher energy. Gratitude is a catalyst for opportunity and it makes you magnetic to whatever you are seeking.

Gratitude and Goalsetting

I host a number of business planning workshops in Colorado every year, and as part of our process, we do a year-in-review. We have our participants answer questions and identify the “five greatest happenings in the last year.” It forces us to think about the relationships in our lives and the love surrounding us. It helps frame our accomplishments and realize our potential based on the goals we’ve already hit. Anything you want to manifest in your life has to come from the heart, and gratitude is the best way to tap into that!

Finding Gratitude When You’re Feeling Stuck

It is easy to fall prey to fear and anxiety. But when you focus on negative emotions, they will manifest negativity in your life. Likewise, if you focus on the blessings you already have, you will find more of those blessings in time! If you can visualize a moment when you felt a powerful sense of gratitude, you can tap into that emotion on-demand. A lot of our goals are shrouded by self-limiting beliefs, but when we think about them in a state of gratitude, our goals become anchored in positive emotion.

When you are operating in a state of positivity, it makes your activities more impactful, your day more joyful, and you will be more magnetic to whatever you’re seeking. The whole point is to build a life you don’t need a vacation from. If you can look deep into your heart and determine the goals you want to accomplish and the relationships you want to build, your business is just a vehicle to get you there!
