The Power of Gratitude

In our journey to attract wealth and prosperity, let's be grateful for what we have. What we have accomplished. For the small successes. For our capacity to excel -- to create. And the empowerment that comes from being!
Gratitude is among one of the most effective strategies useful to change our thinking, feeling and being.
But, it is a sacrifice.
It entails stepping out of our egocentric selves long enough to look beyond our lack, want, need, pain, past, etc. -- so we can focus on ALL the good that abound us.

As life goes on I find I am grateful for what I have gained...and what I have lost.

I totally agree. Sometimes gratitude is difficult, but it's very important. It makes us smile and see our life differently. It gives us new strength to keep moving. Keep up the good work!
