Attitude Of Gratitude

How Do You Build An Attitude Of Gratitude?

There are 3 fundamental principles that must be applied to build an attitude of gratitude.

Acknowledgement – we sometimes meander through life oblivious to the things we have and the enormous value that it brings to our life. Gratitude is a practice of being mindfully aware of what we have, the thought process.  Many times we forget to sit back and think about the pleasures of our life, no matter how big or small they may be. Gratitude starts with the thought, the realisation of the vast magnitude of our blessings.

The second principle we focus on is appreciation. When we convert that thought into a feeling of respect for the abundance we have, or a feeling of joy that accompanies the thought, we create energy in motion. This energy in motion is what we called appreciation. It is the relationship between the thought and the feeling, a positive embrace of the two so that gratitude becomes the outcome.

The third fundamental principle of gratitude is action.  When my thoughts are aligned to my feelings, the energy of gratitude overflows and I must find a channel to capture its essence. I can do this by speaking words of faith or writing down words of gratitude. Feelings need expression and it is through this expression that gratitude becomes real, genuine and rewarding.
