Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough. — Oprah Winfrey
It’s a basic tenet of the Law of Attraction: What you think about and “thank” about, is what your life becomes about. So, being thankful for all your blessings, no matter how big or small, lets your mind, body, spirit, soul and heart line up to allow for more blessings.
Mother Teresa knew this. She said, “Don’t invite me to an anti-war rally. Invite me to a peace rally and I’ll come.” She understood that putting her energy toward something negative would just create more of the negative. But if she engaged in the positive, then the results would be positive.
You can experiment with this for yourself, beginning with gratitude for waking up in the morning, for your cup of coffee, the loved ones around you, the clothes on your back. Be grateful for all the fortunes as well as the character-building adversities, and see how your outlook, your life, begins to change.
