Count your blessings

“Some complain that roses have thorns – others rejoice that thorns have roses!” – Unknown

The universal and powerful Law of Gratitude states very simply, ‘The more grateful you are for what you have, the more abundance you will attract into your life’.

Gratitude works in direct association with the Law of Attraction. Being grateful and appreciative for what you already have in the present, sends out a powerful feeling of faith for an abundant future. The grateful mind is constantly locked on attracting the best into your life; therefore the person who is constantly creating this feeling automatically becomes the best that they can be.

To focus on what you lack in your life is a guaranteed way to set the same universal law to work against you with negative results.

Truly spiritual and enlightened people constantly maintain an attitude of gratitude. They know the magical power of gratitude. They know that gratitude brings you more of what you appreciate. They know that gratitude attracts more of what you are grateful for.

When you find things that you appreciate and you use them as your point of focus, then your world has to get better in every area of your life. Grateful souls know that every time they flood their mind with gratitude and appreciation, they attract more of what they desire.
