Inspiring Minds Book Club just started its latest book, The Magic by Rhonda Byrne, and I must share the teachings of the first chapter.
The chapter is about Gratitude. Gratitude is giving thanks. It is amazing to me, the many things there are to be thankful for, if only we look for them. How many times do we focus on the one or two things that are going wrong versus the hundreds of beautiful things that make us happy?
As I went for a long walk on Sunday, I counted over 100 things to be thankful for. Wonderful things are all around us, if we focus on the wonderful things. And if we focus on gratitude more greatness comes to us. Without gratitude, we disconnect ourselves from the power to receive more.
My challenge to you this week is to start your everyday with reflection of what you are thankful for. Start a gratitude journal. This practice will change your life.
