Feel It First
Then Give Thanks
One of the most powerful success strategies, borrowed from the Bible, science of mind and popular motivational speakers, is the adoption of an "attitude of gratitude." The idea seems simple, and it is, once you get the hang of it. But learning to embrace the practice takes a calm and focused commitment.
It works best when you really believe in your goals in such a way that you feel as though they've already been accomplished. Going inside, close your eyes and observe how good it feels to have already achieved the goal. Top it off by saying, "Thanks." This extra step seems simple, but is absolutely necessary. Saying "Thanks" confirms the feeling within you that it's a done deal and the stability of that shored-up feeling helps actualize the goal. Put the amazing creative and imaginative power of your mind to use! Confirm your aspirations with feeling and earnest consideration. With commitment, your perspective will shift. You'll begin to perceive the possibilities more clearly and your joys more fully. Stick with it - it works!
