Attitude of gratitude, what exactly is that? It simply means that for us to have more in our lives, we must first be grateful for everything we have now. I can remember a time when I was explaining to someone that it is important that we are grateful for all we have. This person said to me, "I'm broke financially, I'm frustrated with the situation I'm in, I don't see light at the end of the tunnel. How can I be grateful when I have absolutely nothing going for me?"

So I asked him if we was healthy, he said he was. Then I asked him if he works, he said he did. I also asked him if he was married, he said he has an amazing wife and two beautiful children. Then I asked him, "So what exactly is your challenge? You have a job, you are healthy and you have the most amazing family."

He looked at me with a look in his eyes that had that "aha" moment. Then he said to me, "I didn't realize how much I really have. So if I begin to be grateful for what I have, things will change in my life? Is that what you are saying?"

I told him that was exactly what I was saying. When we begin to acknowledge what we have in our lives, our subconscious minds begin to search for more of the good stuff that really "turns us on" about life. For example, if you are constantly focusing on what you don't have, this is when you begin to get frustrated, angry, even depressed because everything seems so far away. It seems too "impossible" to reach. When you begin to be grateful and show gratitude for what you already have in life, everything else that comes to you feels like  bonus.

So, how do you show gratitude, how do you feel grateful for what you have? It's really quite simple. The first thing to do is make a list of everything you have, it doesn't matter what it is, be grateful for everything, show gratitude for all you have. If you feel you are broke financially and you only have a few dollars in the bank, be grateful that you have money in the bank. There are people who don't even have that much.

Being grateful and showing gratitude is also a state of "feeling", in other words, really feel good about what you have, get excited. When you are making your list of all you are grateful for, put feeling into it while you are writing it down. Say to yourself, "I am so happy and grateful that I have all these things in my life", and after you finish making your list, read it over and say to yourself, with feeling, "I am so grateful for everything in my life". Once you get that feeling and you are in that state of gratitude, that is when you make a list of all the other things you want in your life. Your subconscious is a computer, it is waiting for you to "program" it to think how you want to feel.

During the day, go over in your mind how grateful you are  for all you have, remind yourself on a consistent basis how happy you are for being the wonderful person you are. Never say to yourself, "I'll be happy when........", because when you say that, you are telling your subconscious that you are not happy. Be happy now!!! Be happy that you have the eyes to read this and the voice to describe how you feel. Be happy for what you have in your life right now. Get out of the habit of saying, "I'l be happy when..........", instead say to yourself, "I am happy with who I am, with what I have right now, and everything else, people, things, etc. that come into my life is a bonus!!!"

I am happy with who I am, I am grateful for all I have, I have an attitude of gratitude. I am always saying to myself, "Thank-you for all I have and thank-you for everything I am about to receive". Your subconscious loves to be acknowledged for picking things up and noticing things and bringing these things to a conscious level.

So remember, be grateful for what you have, be happy with who you are, and, "The Future Is Yours".
