When was the last time you said “thank you”? With all your heart? Everybody preachesthat an “attitude of gratitude” is the key to success, but very fewreallypractice it. Well, start by experience gratitude first, as in doing an experiment with it, and take it from there.
I once did a gratitude experiment. I decided to write down at the end of the day all the things I was grateful for. I created a sort of a gratitude journal. Didn’t plan in advance what to write, went with the flow. Each evening, five minutes.
After 30 days I re-read it. I was amazed by this simple fact: the things I was grateful for grew from one day to another. It was like feeding them with my gratitude. Looking back after 30 days made it obvious: I experiencedmore of what I was grateful for in my life.
Expressing gratitude doesn’t cost you…
