If you want more abundance in your life then you need to develop an attitude of gratitude. We want you to believe this because it is true. For some people this is difficult to understand and accept so in this article we will explain why expressing gratitude will lead to you experiencing more abundance.
Stop thinking the World Owes you something
One of the biggest problems in society today is that so many people believe that the world owes them something. They think that they are entitled to everything and don’t feel that they should put in any effort to get what they desire. Let’s face it we live in an instant gratification world right now.
So most people end up being disappointed because they cannot easily get their hands on what they believe the world owes them. Social media piles on the pressure by depicting images of people leading perfect lives. But this is not true and it is just a way to want people to desire more things. Without this desire most businesses would not exist.
If you live in a world of “want” all of the time then you will never be truly happy in your life. When you have an attitude of gratitude you appreciate the things that you have in your life. Most people take these things for granted and end up complaining about all of the the things that they don’t have.
Gratitude Overcomes Entitlement
When you are truly grateful for the things in your life you will overcome any feelings of entitlement. This doesn’t mean that you will never have other things in your life – far from it. Some people think that expressing gratitude is saying “thank you” every time you receive something or if someone helps you out.
But saying thank you is just expected. It is the norm in life. As a child you were taught to say thank you by your parents and teachers. And so was everybody else. True gratitude goes beyond this. It takes additional effort than just uttering those two words.
So how can you show more gratitude? Well an easy way to do this is to think about the things that are in your life right now and think about how they make you feel. For example, you may have a job that doesn’t pay you that much but it keeps a roof over your head and makes sure that you have food on the table. So you can be truly thankful that you have this job.
The same goes for the people in your life right now. Your partner, your children, your parents, your friends and so on. Think about why you are so grateful that you have these people and then be thankful with feeling.
Gratitude and Abundance
If you spend your life being negative and complaining that you do not have the things that you are entitled to then you will send out negative signals to the Universe. If you constantly send out negative signals then the Universe will align itself to provide you with more negative things.
With an attitude of gratitude you will send positive signals to the Universe. The Universe will believe that you are happy with what you have and align itself to provide you with more. This is where the link to abundance comes in.
