"Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance" - Eckhart Tolle
Gratitude is a practice known to enrich the soul. Many believe that through gratitude you become rich within yourself. It changes your mentality and allows you to grow. Gratitude has the power to manifest greater potential through other aspects of your physical, spiritual, and financial wellbeing.
For decades, researchers have been studying the benefits of gratitude for people on their journey to wealth creation and eventually, financial freedom. The more time that you invest in practicing gratitude has been proven to help people experience more energy, greater optimism, happiness and social connections. All of which can be produced in meaningful ways that builds up all forms of wealth.
Wealth creation - let's redefine it
Typically, when we consider the concept of wealth we think of becoming rich through money. Though, numbers are only one measure of tracking wealth. In fact, wealth can be redefined for the purpose of growth in many aspects of someone's life. When we track wealth holistically, the practice of gratitude becomes easier.
How to define wealth
Wealth can be idealised through various measures. These include; family, friends, social networks, health, ambition, business, spirituality and other factors you measure in your life with or without numerical value.
When we begin to measure wealth through a broader lens, we cultivate a greater sense of purpose and forms of gratitude. This is when the abundance mindset comes into play. A mindset that allows people to understand that there is plenty out there for everyone.
Practice of gratitude
Gratitude is a practice that you should practice daily. From the moment you wake up of a morning to when you hit the pillow at night. It's an easy practice and you can build it up over time. It's important to show gratitude for those around us and importantly to our own selves.
You can start by acknowledging the good things around you and the people who do things for you. Give these people constant thanks. Then acknowledge your own achievements and matters of personal growth. You can do this by simply taking notes in a gratitude journal and write down several things that you're grateful for each day.
Developing a routine of expressing gratitude will then become second nature. Before you know it, you will manifest greater potential for yourself. Investing your time into matters of gratitude will be the best investment you make in life!
