The Universe Will Conspire To Help You Succeed When You Show Gratitude.
Gratitude is defined as “the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness”. This is a valuable tool that can help boost not only your physical and emotional success but your professional and business pursuits as well. Research has found that when one uses gratitude as a part of their daily routine, it can change your brain chemistry on a molecular level. Those who practice this on a regular basis find the universe rewards them in return.
The possibilities are endless.
Personally, I started implementing gratitude as a part of my daily routine over a decade ago. Allowing myself the opportunity to not only be thankful, but to express that, forced me to be more positive. Focusing on the good is how I have started and ended each day since then.
It has been proven that what you put out to the world will come back to you. If you exude positivity, you will have positivity gifted back to you in return. This also means that if you focus on the negative, you will continue to attract negativity. There are many who still question the validity of this concept, but scientists have found these theories to be true.
One of the world's scientific experts on gratitude, Robert A. Emmons, conducted a study where he organized two groups of ten people. They kept a daily journal for 10 weeks. Group one was instructed to write the things they were thankful for each day, and group two to write about the things that hassled them. This study showed that group one was estimated to be 25% happier than group two. Thus, demonstrating that focusing on the positive aspects of your life are likely to improve your overall happiness.
That’s why I designed the Grateful Goals journal.
