The power of gratitude is amazing. Everything in life is an expression of God. We are all here for one thing: to expand God by learning and loving to our maximum. In the beginning, there was nothing but God. God had nothing to start with. There’s a mathematical equation here:
God + Nothing = God
When we’re in gratitude, we recognize more God in everything. God doesn’t give you brownie points for being more grateful. It’s actually much simpler than that. Since we are an extension of God, when we recognize more God in everything, we actually recognize more of ourselves.
Here’s an exercise: Give gratitude for everything in your life, starting now. I mean everything –the ant on the ground or the struggles you’re experiencing. Whatever it is in your life, start walking around in constant gratitude. You’ll actually create a cycle of action which will attract more into your life, so you’ll have the opportunity to give more gratitude.
Gratitude is one of the most common character traits of all successful people. Try walking around for the next 3 days in a constant state of gratitude and watch what happens in your life.
“Living a Life of Gratitude. Whatever you call your life, you create it to be the same. I call my life a miraculous experience and so it is. Feel the immense gratitude for all the ways God supports you, the love of others, and how everything goes your way. Soon, you’ll discover more of the same multiplying around you. If freedom is a road in life, gratitude would have to be the vehicle used to drive on it.” Michael J. Dukett, Existing in a State of Power.
