Having an attitude of gratitude provides many benefits and can result in profound changes in your life. So how do we harness this magic? How do we become more grateful for everything we have and everything we receive in our lives?
As Core Energy coaches we know there is a profound connection between Thoughts, Emotions and Actions. Yes, we know that your thoughts trigger specific feelings or emotions and those emotions result in specific actions or, in some cases, inaction. We work with clients every day to help them become self-aware and understand how, through their emotions and actions, their thoughts influence their lives.
And of course, as coaches, our primary focus is always on assisting our clients to see new, bigger possibilities and clearer understanding of what’s holding them back as a means of helping them move forward in their lives.
So what’s that got to do with gratitude? Lots, as you will soon see. We have talked about the definition of gratitude and the benefits gratitude provides and the role that gratitude, or the lack of it, plays in your life. We know that having an attitude of gratitude plays an important role in attracting abundance and removing blocks to progress. Prepare to be amazed by how you can attract all of the amazing benefits that come from living a life with gratitude.
So let me ask you a question. Are you habitual? Do you fold your arms the same way every time? Do you take the same route to work every day? Do you follow the same routine every morning? Chances are very good that you answered yes to these questions.
“What’s the point?” you may be thinking. The point is that you and I create habits and then repeat them whenever we need to do something, like go to work. It simplifies our lives. So why not create useful habits? The truth is we already do. Not always… but we do. Let’s put our habit-forming powers to work for us in creating the habit of gratitude.
Of course that presents a few challenges. 1) What things do we need to do to create an attitude of gratitude? And 2) How will we remember to do these regularly so that having an attitude of gratitude becomes a habit? Those are great questions, but don’t worry… we’ve got you covered. First, let’s talk about how to help you create the habit.
Here you are, fired up and ready to make a change in your life. Exciting isn’t it? You are filled with expectation and anticipation of what lies ahead. Will it work? Of course it will! How could it fail with the level of commitment and motivation you feel? But wait a minute! Let’s build a little added protection into your plan. Let’s add some insurance. It’s one thing to start a race… entirely another thing to finish it.
It is generally held that it takes 3 to 4 weeks of continuous repetition to form a new habit. Of course what we mean by forming a new habit is anchoring a new routine into your daily lifestyle so that it not only becomes a natural thing to do without reminders, but you actually miss it if you don’t do it.
Because you are keen and committed, the first days of your journey down your new path go quite well. But then, quite often, slippage begins to creep in. You miss a day here, then another there, then another. Let’s face it, it’s easy to forget something that has not yet had an opportunity to provide any reward. So how do you prevent that? How about using Reminders?
