Gratitude: 11 Universal Laws for ThanksLiving

The Law of Thanksgiving

It’s easy to be grateful around the Thanksgiving holiday. But what if we were able to find ourselves feeling grateful year round? What that might change about your life?

The Law of Who Past

To whom in the past are you grateful? Someone who gave you a break, someone who cared about you, inspired you, believed in you, or someone who simply listened to you? Have you ever sought them out to thank them, perhaps just a phone call to say thanks? As someone who has made those kind of calls, it really feels good to express your gratitude. And as someone who has had the privilege of being on the receiving end of those kind of calls, it sure can make your day, your week, or more.

The Law of Who Now

For whom are you grateful for in your life right now? Have you let them know lately how much you appreciate them? If not, give the gift today!

The Law of Attitude

Gratitude is simply an attitude. The one thing we can always choose each day, in any situation, is our attitude. Therefore, we always have the ability to choose an attitude of gratitude.

The Law of Abundance, Part 1

One great benefit of a gratitude attitude is you become much more aware of the abundance you already have in your life.

The Law of Abundance, Part 2

Another great and unexpected benefit of a gratitude attitude is that, with this consistent attitude of gratitude, you seem to be able to draw even more and more abundance into your life.

The Law of Abundance, Part 3

Author Stephen Glenn has this definition of abundance; “In terms of the population of the planet, you have abundance if, when you wake up each morning, you have: a choice of what to eat a choice of what to wear a job to go to a way to get there.”

The Law of Lacking

If we focus on all the things we want and don’t have, we wind up feeling lacking. Not a great state to be in.

The Law of Blessed

When we focus on all the many things we need and want that we do have, we wind up feeling blessed. A pretty great state to be in.

The Law of Focus

Have you ever noticed that what you consistently focus on tends to be what happens? I’ve also noticed that when we focus on what we lack, we tend to get selfish, looking out only for ourselves. On the other hand, when we focus on our blessings, it’s much easier to look out for others as well as ourselves. Yes, it really can be that simple.

The Law of “Betcha”

I’ll “betcha” that if between now and next Thanksgiving season, you focus on developing a consistent, year round gratitude attitude, your life will be a whole lot better this time next year.

    Thanks Jeff – It's good to know that there are some people out there who do not focus entirely on their own greed.

    It's an excellent attitude to keep in mind and further develop – cheers for that 🙂

    Hi Jeff
    Thank you for encouraging me to write an article a day in 2009. It's become a lovely new habit, and I send you thoughts of gratitude each day as I start a new article. Thanks again for your inspiration!
