It is amazing how one simple, easy, positive action can transform much in an individual’s life.
One of the things that have had the greatest impact on my life is the recognition of the power of gratitude.Yes, simply giving thanks!
It has affected everything. It has made me a more optimistic person, a far more productive individual and a better achiever. A better husband and also father and son and brother (at the very least, I like to think so). A happier individual. I’m not perfect; but gratitude has made me better.
Can it improve your life also? I could guarantee it. You might not get the very same benefits as I have, nevertheless there’s no doubt in my mind that the simple act of gratitude on a regular basis can change anyone’s life, positively and also right away. How many other changes can claim to be that fast, that simple, and that profound?
Let’s take a look at a few of the ways you can incorporate gratitude into your life, and just how it will change your life. These are merely examples, based on my experience and the experiences of other people I have talked with and not all will certainly apply to your daily life. But choose the ones you think is useful for you.
1. Have a morning gratitude session. Take 1 minute each morning (make it a daily routine) to consider those who have done something nice for you, to consider everything in your life you’re pleased for. You won’t get to all things in one minute, but it’s enough. And it’ll instantly make your day, and also help you begin your entire day off right. Can you imagine a much better use of one minute? You may also send a grateful card in one minute.
2. When you are having a difficult day … make a gratitude checklist. We all have those bad days at times. We are stressed out from work. We get yelled at by someone. We lose a family member. We hurt a family member. We lose a contract or even do badly on a project. One thing that can make a bad day much better is creating a listing of everything you’re grateful for. There are always circumstances to be grateful for – family members, health, having a job, having a roof over your head and also clothing on your back, life itself.
3. Rather than getting mad at someone, show gratitude. That is a major switching of behaviour – really a complete flip. And thus this isn’t easy to do. But I can promise you that it is a great thing to do. When you get mad at your co-worker, for instance, due to something he or she did … bite your tongue and don’t react in anger. Rather, take deep breaths, calm down, and try to think of reasons you’re grateful for that person. Has that individual done anything good for you personally? Has that person ever done a good job? Find something, anything, even if it is difficult. Concentrate on those ideas that make you grateful. It will slowly change your mood. And when you get in a good mood, display your gratitude to that person. It will transform your mood, your relationship, and help make things better. After showing gratitude, you could request a favor – can he please refrain from shredding your important documents in the future? As well as in the context of your gratitude, such a favor isn’t such a hard thing for the co-worker to give.
