Can you bring positive changing to your life by changing your thoughts towards gratitude? It could be said that the thoughts that you think on a regular basis might be having a powerful effect on your life. Indeed the thoughts that you think could in-fact effect the things that are happening in your life on a daily basis. So can you generate meaningful effects in your life by having increased thoughts of gratitude?
The Effect of Continual Repetition
The way that a young human will learn to acquire new skills could be said to be by practicing the new skill a number of times until, the new habit is established. This idea of repetition could be said to be one of the most effective methods of mastering a new skill. So it could be useful to apply this concept in-order to change your life by changing your attitude to gratitude. By looking at life through the eyes of gratitude could allow you to see life in new ways. You could find that many of the basic things that might have been taken for granted, could in-fact be some of the greatest blessings that you currently have in your life. One sad fact in life is that many people do not appreciate the small important gifts that they have, for example the ability to read this. It is very sad to reach the stage of losing a valuable ability before you value and appreciate it. So it could be very useful to consciously think about the many good things that you have in your life.
Attitude to Gratitude
If you look at the idea of focusing your daily thoughts on thoughts of gratitude, perhaps this can generate new ways for you to see the world and the life that you live. A new outlook may allow you to create greater and better feelings within your mind. And if you are creating better feelings within your mind this may in-fact lead to better feelings within your body. It could be argued that the thoughts that you think may have a direct effect on the conditions within your body. It could be said that stress is one of the main causes of illness, and stress could be said to be a result of the thoughts that you are thinking. So by the same argument, thoughts of gratitude may be the way that you can generate positive effects in your body. So the idea of having daily thoughts of gratitude could be something of great benefit to you. What do you think? – Thoughts to make you wonder. MGA Brown (c) 15 July 2013
