We can never underestimate the power of gratitude to transform tough things into tolerable.

Two forces for good—gratitude and kindness—are free and easy to apply.

Perhaps that’s the problem.

We can tend to discount things that are too simple as being ineffective. Yet isn’t that what many of us crave more of in this era of rapid change and complexity? The simplicity of gratitude can expand the heart, elevate the mind and heal the wounded soul.

Focus on the Good and You’ll See More of That

It’s just that it’s too easy to see what’s missing… what’s wrong… what’s hard, and to focus on that. Instead, remember to focus on the good and the gains, and truly, they will grow.

Focus on the Gains not the Gaps

We first heard this ‘focus on the gains‘ concept from Dan Sullivan, cofounder of Strategic Coach. This is also such a simple thing, that is extraordinarily effective. To focus on the gains…on what’s good in your life is to automatically invoke gratitude.

Remember, gratitude works, it’s powerful and it’s free.

“Gratitude is the light that opens the blossom of the heart from which the seeds of kindness grow.”

Gratitude Jar for When You’re Down

For the days when it’s hard to muster gratitude, try this:

Whenever you’re feeling especially upbeat and positive and in love with life, make a gratitude list of anything and everything you can think of for which to be grateful. From toothpaste and showers to warm beds in winter… loved ones and furry friends… sunrises and songbirds. Everything.

Now you have your go-to list for when you’re feeling down and can’t seem to muster anything for which to feel grateful. 

If you have time, cut these gratitudes into little “fortune cookie” style strips, (folded or open), and place them in a jar. Then on those days when you need a kick in the gratitude you can pull one or more randomly from the jar to help you change you state. 

You can even buy gratitude jars to jumpstart your collection.
