Appreciation is one of the highest emotional states you can be in. It is the state of abundance. The Law of Attraction states that if you are grateful for what you have already received, you will attract more of it. It requires great diligence to cultivate an attitude of appreciation since we are culturally conditioned to focus on what we don’t have.
Activate your gratitude by acknowledging the gifts most people take for granted. If you have food in your refrigerator, clothes in your closet and a roof over your head, you are better off than 75 percent of the world’s population. If you eat three meals a day, you are far better off than the 1 billion people on the planet who eat once a day at most. Is your family healthy? These blessings and conveniences are gifts that are meant to be celebrated.
