Being thankful has great power. When you are thankful, you are in a very creation-orientated state of mind because you are telling yourself with a very strong positive emotion that you “have” something, and that something which you “have” or that “has happened to you” is good for you. In essence you are stating that you are happy for this “person, situation, or thing”. This doesn’t have to be a good thing. You can choose the perspective of seeing the good in every situation.
Why is this powerful? Because when you mix a positive emotion with a positive belief you create a positive future. Especially when you are focused on improving relationships instead of acquiring wealth. The more you believe “you have good things happening to you” with a loving heart, the greater your power to create. So the more you are grateful to God for where you are and what you have been given, the stronger your ability to belief in a more positive future.
This Thanksgiving spend time cultivating the power of positive thought by focusing on what you have instead of what you don’t have. Be grateful! Rejoice each day with where you are and before you know it where you are will expand into more things for which to be grateful.
