“The miracle of gratitude is that it shifts your perception to such an extent that it changes the world you see.”
~ Dr. Robert Holden
What this quote means to entrepreneurs:
You choose how you see the world. Like the analogy of the cup … your world can be either half full or half empty — it is your choice.
When you cultivate an attitude of gratefulness, your world will be filled with things to be appreciated and thankful for.
Our brains are wired to find what we are looking for. Literally. For example, one day I noticed a turquoise green Honda Accord. I don’t know why it stood out to me, but on that day it did. For weeks after that, I kept seeing turquoise green Honda Accords everywhere I went. It was like I was being stalked by the car!
That was my Reticular Activation System, RAS for short, selectively bringing to my attention that which it thought I wanted to see.
You can train your RAS to see what is wonderful in your life, your relationships and your world simply by appreciating what you have and what is there. Not only will you notice good things more often, but you’ll also become magnetic to good things. And that’s the Law of Attraction working with your own biology to help you create your reality.
Now, which would you like your world to be: full of abundance and prosperity? Or full of lack and poverty? Again, it is your choice.
Now It’s Your Turn:
