“Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.”~Brain Tracy
Hello everyone, I hope everyone is doing fantastic.
Gratitude! When was the last time you ever said a thank you to anyone? Probably, just now or even months back or you might not remember. The reason I’m asking this question is because many have confused the term ‘gratitude’ to just saying the word ‘Thanks’ or ‘Thank you’, but that is not gratitude. Gratitude refers to the state of being thankful, when you are really grateful to any person, sometimes even the words ‘thank you’ would seem very small. It is not enough that you say the words thank you, you must feel it!
Sometimes, you might not want to show gratitude, at that time too, I encourage you to at least thank the person, because you might not know what that person has been going through in his life. A small ‘thank you’ might make them happier than you can imagine.
Gratitude is actually helpful for you. Here are few scientifically proven facts of Gratitude
1.Gratitude opens the door to more relationships.
2. Gratitude improves physical and psychological health.
3. Gratitude enhances empathy and reduces aggression.
4.Grateful people sleep better.
5.Gratitude improves self-esteem.
6.Gratitude increases mental strength.
It is stated in The Secret, “Gratitude is a powerful process for shifting your energy and bringing more of what you want into your life. Be grateful for what you already have and you will attract more good things.”
So, if you are selfish, be grateful for yourself, if you are selfless, be grateful for others. ‘Gratitude’ is the only thing that matters.
“Gratitude is the sign of noble souls.”~Aesop
“When you are grateful, you are just thanking for everything you have, and the more you are thankful for something, you’ll end up attracting more of it!”
Crazy, isn’t it?
Complaining is just opposite of gratefulness;
“When you complain, you forget to be aware of all the blessings you have already been receiving..”
“‘Thank you’ is the best prayer that anyone could say. I say that one a lot. Thank you expresses extreme gratitude, humility, understanding.”~Alice Walker
