Having an Attitude of Gratitude

Often times the best lessons in life come during times of intense struggle.

However, it is how we respond to that struggle that determines our future state of prosperity and abundance or continued downward spiral of depression and despair. The only way to stop that spiral is to focus on gratitude and realize that most likely we have found ourselves in that current state due to a lack of gratitude in our lives.

It can be hard to admit and takes courage and looking deep within but the rewards are plentiful. It's easy to blame our current circumstances on people and events outside of our control, but the reality is that we create our own circumstances. We create our struggles, and likewise, we create our triumphs.

So take a moment and reflect on your current state of affairs. Your family life. Your career or lack there of. Your finances. Your health. Now accept that you are 100% responsible for your current circumstances. Not the economy, not your parents, not your boss, not your spouse or children.

The final step is to focus on everything and everyone you are grateful for. Your family, friends, home, car, pets, fresh water, food, clothing, clean air, ...(enter your list here).

As soon as we can accept that we have created our reality, without blame and victimhood, and are truly grateful for all the blessings in our lives, we can start to attract those events and things into our life that we desire and absolutely deserve.

In Love & Gratitude,

Dr. T
