Thanksgiving Puts You On The Road to Success
My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving! We should celebrate it everyday. It's a holiday for everyone - one that excludes no one and has universal power to benefit everyone that joins in on the celebration. Energizing your appreciation for all that is going well in the adventure you are having is the best way to bring more of everything you want to your experience. Assessing all of the things you have to be grateful for- is the most powerful way to build your confidence and optimism and success.
Most of you have probably realized by now that if you focus most of your time on things that are not going as you want them to in your life, it only makes you feel worse - it is very depressing. If you allow yourself to get depressed, that will sap all of your energy - particularly your creative energy. Depression breeds deeper depression - it is a self fulfilling prophecy. Pretty soon things can descend to the point that you start thinking you are a victim and that you have no control over the lousy hand of cards life has dealt you. That of course just brings you more of the same and things will continue to get worse or seem worse even if they are not.
So, how do you get out of this spiral of not having a good time? You need a change of Mind! That's where THANKSGIVING comes in. It's about changing your attitude and breaking a non-productive cycle. If you take the time to focus on things you are thankful for it will chip away at any feeling of depression or hopelessness. The more you focus on the things you are thankful for the better you will feel.
Everyone can find a smile creeping to their face as they take a moment to be thankful for a sunny day, a good friend, a good meal - take some time to find a bunch of things you can be thankful for. It is a great and exceedingly productive process to start each of your days counting your blessings - feeling good about all the things you should be celebrating. As you are working on projects or handling your daily responsibilities, take the time to be thankful for each success along the way.
Here's the thing (CLiCK HERE) - the more you can stay focused on "feeling good" instead of "feeling bad" the more energy you will have to keep things going the way you want them to go. There is a great song by Bob Marley called "Three Little Birds" - it has a great message: "Rise up this mornin', Smiled with the risin' sun, Three little birds pitch by my doorstep Singin' sweet songs of melodies pure and true, Singin': "Don't worry 'bout a thing, 'Cause every little thing gonna be all right!" Listen to the song. Just singing it to yourself can help you get that "thanksgiving" feeling going.
If you want to get the most out of life and "Be Happy" (another very useful song by Bobby McFerrin) catch yourself every time you start feeling sorry for yourself and find some things you are thankful for to think about. Taking time to pay attention to every little success or good thing in your day will propel you to days filled with positive accomplishments and joy.
Happy Thanksgiving! Make thanksgiving a daily event and you will be guaranteed a better life in every way! I thank you for every PositiVibe you radiate out to the world - each one makes the world a better place for everyone!
Together we can transform the world into a better and better place if we are willing to use our power. We can wield Magic at the Edge of Creation!
