Want more from life? Start counting your blessings.
One of my biggest lesson I’ve learned over the past years is how a simple act of gratitude can positively change my life. We don’t always get what we want in life, but we always get what we need. By a simple act of counting my blessing, it has opens up so much more blessings pouring into all areas of my life, sometimes more than what I asked for.
We meet people everyday. And if you were to ask what they would like more in life, many would tell you they want more money, love, time and even opportunities. But many forget how blessed we are. And all these things they wanted can be translated into one simple word – ABUNDANCE.
To get more abundance in life, we first have to appreciate what life has to offer. Appreciation is one of the highest emotional states one can experience. Despite having people to complain not having enough daily, the very fact is we are all living in an abundant world. So, what’s blocking it? and how can we allow more abundance to flow into our life?
The good news is, we can allow this flow simply by strengthening our abundant muscle in re-learning and practicing it. Here, I share 5 simple daily habit you can cultivate each day to attract more abundance in your life:
1. Give Thanks as soon as you wake up
