What’s your purpose? Many people drift through life, with no sense of purpose, direction or true joy. They ignore the fact that they aren’t happy and never address the mindset and choices that led to that unhappiness. Most people have limiting beliefs and so their life is limited. They believe life is hard, and so it is. They believe life is a challenge, and challenges seem to pile one atop another. They believe either consciously or unconsciously that their best days are behind them. They believe fitting in and being who they are expected to be will get them a better or easier life than being their true self and following their true passion. Their happiness is dependent on what others thinks and what happens. They are not in control of life; life is in control of them.
Over the next 10 days, we will be sharing one of 10 empowering beliefs about life and this is Day #2! These are beliefs that will open the door for life to work with you and for you. Once these beliefs become part of who you are, your entire life will change. Guaranteed.
#2 Be Grateful
This is one that everyone can understand. Happy people are happy because they appreciate what they have more than unhappy people. You can be happy with little or miserable with much. When you really feel this, you understand that the purpose of your life isn’t to accumulate things. It’s to get to a place in your life where you feel like you have everything. Because that is what life is – how we feel about it. Feel blessed and you will be blessed. Feel blessed and you are blessed.
People who regularly practice gratitude experience more positive emotions, feel more alive, sleep better, express more compassion and kindness, and even have stronger immune systems. Having a regular gratitude practice may be one of the single most positive changes you can make in your life. Make being grateful a regular part of your day.
One of the best ways to do this is by having a gratitude journal. Start you day and end your day by writing down 5 things you’re grateful for. Try and think of as many different things as you can. You’ll be surprised at how much you already have, no matter where you are in your life. When you’re truly grateful for what you have, you’ll find you have so much more to be grateful for.
