A Most Powerful Force
There is a powerful force within each one of us that you can use to break any obstacles no matter how bad the situation is. Once you know how powerful this force is and how it works, you can eliminate fears, worries and anxieties. Life becomes an easy and fulfilling process. You start to enjoy your life; you start to enjoy every moment of your existence.
Are you getting excited to know what this power is? This powerful force is “The power of appreciation and gratitude.”
Yes, the power of appreciation enhanced with gratitude. If you want to prosper in life, you have to know the power of appreciation, and you have to know how it works, and live by it. This is the secret weapon that you can use to win the battle of life, no matter how bad your current circumstances are. Don’t let the simplicity of this concept fool you. Just this one simple idea will completely change your life.
Let the following sink into your subconscious mind: “No matter what circumstance you encounter, no matter what situation you are in, you always have the choice to find something to appreciate and immediately change your point of attraction at that moment!”
Remember the quality of your life is determined by the quality of this moment. And you have the choice in every moment. You can choose to feel depressed, and unhappy, or you can choose to find something to appreciate which will immediately change your point of view. To learn the art of appreciation and gratitude, find something right now in your environment that you can feel good about, or with some consideration can be thankful for. Make the effort and you will find.
Have you got it? No matter who you are, or where you are, you have at least one thing to appreciate just because you are reading this. The internet! Consider how amazing it is that we can access this marvelous tool and find literally any information we want in minutes.
Now, stop for a moment, and really feel it. What does that make you feel? Think about how fortunate you are compared to people without resources, or all of mans history before the full plethora of ideas and knowledge was so readily available. Of course we need to be mindful and discerning as to what we assimilate, but we do have the choice. Hold on to this good feeling for at least 17 seconds. Train yourself thus and you are on your way to dramatic changes in your life.
You can consciously find something to appreciate anytime and anywhere. It is actually very simple, it only takes a few seconds here and a few seconds there, your life will never be the same. Soon enough it will become a good habit. You will then find yourself full of energy and happiness.
Appreciate the food that you eat, appreciate the air that you breathe in, appreciate the sunshine, appreciate your relationships, appreciate the room that you are in. Appreciate everything.
Well, you may say “The food that I eat is not as good as the rich eat”, “the air that I breathe in is not as good as the air in another city.”, “The relationship that I am in is not as fulfilling as it should be”, “The room that I live in is not as big as I want”. Maybe all these things are true, but true only because you have chosen to perceive them this way. The important thing is you can perceive in a different way at any moment. Change the way you see things and the things you see will change. Have patience, and in due course, through positive desire held in mind with appreciation and gratitude, you can even change your circumstance.
The existence of a positive and negative aspect to circumstances or persons is only natural. You can either focus on the negatives and blame what is wrong, or you can choose to appreciate the positive aspect and what is right. This will make a big difference in the quality of your life. Again, don’t let the simplicity of this gift diminish its power for you, practice appreciation and gratitude here, there and everywhere and you will find miracles coming into your life.
