If you want more abundance in your life, then you need to develop an attitude of gratitude. I hope you could believe this because it is true. But, for some people, it isn’t easy to understand and accept this notion. So, in this article, I will explain why expressing gratitude will lead to you experiencing more abundance.
The World Doesn’t Owe You Anything.
One of society’s biggest problems today is that so many people believe that the World owes them something. They think they have entitlement right to everything and don’t feel the need to exert any effort to get what they desire as individuals.
Instead, they prefer the notion of what they want to be handed to them on a silver platter, on the coattails of others. Let’s face it we live in an instant gratification world right now. So, these folks end up frustrated and often disappointed because they cannot quickly get their hands on what they believe the World owes them.
Social media adds to 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 genuinely happy in your life.
When your mindset is one of gratitude, you appreciate the things that you have in your life. Most people take these things for granted and complain about all of the things they don’t have.
Gratitude Overcomes Entitlement
When you are genuinely grateful for the gifts in your life, you will overcome any feelings of entitlement. It doesn’t mean that you will never have other material objects 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 being thankful is just expected. It is the norm in life.
As children, our parents, teachers, or elders taught us to express gratitude and verbalize thank you. It was the same for everybody else. Genuine appreciation goes beyond uttering those two words. So how can you show more gratitude?
One way to do this is to think about the things that are in your life and think about how they make you feel. For example, maybe you 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.
You can apply the same measure to people in your life, with 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.
Gratitude and Abundance
If you spend your life being negative and complaining that you do not have the objects your claim entitlement, you will send out negative signals to the Universe. If you continuously send out negative signs, then the Universe will align itself to provide you with more negative things. With gratitude being a part of your mindset, 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. It is where the link to abundance comes in.
