I came across an inspiring quote sent to me by Charbel Khoury at Atlantis financials From The Secret Daily Teachings:
“It is when you no longer feel the need for money that money will come. The feeling of needing money comes from the thought that you don't have enough, and so you continue to create not having enough money. You are always creating, and when it comes to money, you are either creating the lack of it or the abundance of it.”
And Charbel explains after the quote the importance of gratitude in one’s life. Here I couldn’t just stop without sharing with you the importance of gratitude and the wonders it has done to my life.
I started a habit of writing a gratitude list every once and a while, by simply stating the good things in my life. At the beginning I used to struggle to write 3 or 4 sentences; but once I started it, my list got filled quickly with amazing things happening in my life.
The effects of such list are out of this world; every time you write down things you are grateful for you get an incredible energy boost that makes you continue building on an idea or a goal that you have already started or start a new thing. It opens doors of opportunities.
For the more pragmatic people reading this, it is not magical or supernatural, it is just the power of identification. Once you focus on the good things in life, you will start identifying similar other good things and hence be able to catch every opportunity that presents to you. It happens to us on a daily basis; how many times someone talked to you about a new car that you have never seen, and suddenly the week that follows, you will see a dozen of that car?
To help you write you own list, I am going to share with you some points of my gratitude list:
I am Grateful for ideas group’ vision getting closer to achievement
I am Grateful for Doing what i Love and Loving what i do
I am Grateful for all the opportunities that are presented to me
I am Grateful for my strategic partners who value the power of synergy
I am Grateful for my clients who gave me their trust that is sometimes unconditional
I am Grateful for my friends who are always present when needed despite my constant absence
Happy 2011 and may it be filled with Great Gratitude.
