The answers to these questions can have a very useful impact on your life. So does a desire to be grateful bring positive results?

The words thank you

If you consider that when you do a good deed for another person they will generally show appreciation by saying the words thank you. It could be said that it is universally accepted that it is important to show thanks for a good deed which has been done. If a person refused to show gratitude for a good deed done to them. The person who done the good deed may refuse to do other good deeds for that person in the future.

Thoughts of gratitude

Are thoughts of gratitude useful things to have? William Walker Atkinson suggested in his book “The power of concentration” that concentrated mental demand can affect situations leading to events that you desire happening, by virtue of you sending out concentrated thought. Based on this idea, it could be suggested that sending focused concentrated thoughts of gratitude may actually yield positive effects. So this could lead to the argument that it might be wise to think positive thoughts of gratitude. This could suggest that you may be able to convey gratitude to someone even though you may not be able to physically say thank you to them.

The Psychic thank you

The idea of saying thank you on a psychic level is something that could be possible. If you consider that there may have been times when you may have been thinking about a friend or love one, and in a very short time they contacted you out of the blue. If there are psychic abilities that you have access to, then it might be possible that you may actually be able to send a psychic thank you, or a psychic feeling of gratitude to a friend or a love one. Indeed the idea of thought transfer is something that could be something that could be a reality sometime in the future. For example electricity has always existed even before it was discovered.

Interdependence the Link With Gratitude

If you look at the many things that you do in life, you would notice that there are many things and people whom you depend on to allow you to have a happy life. For example if there were no one sweeping the streets, you could find that your journey along the street could become very unpleasant due to the build-up of litter. So It could be that you are more interdependent than you may realise. So what has interdependence got to do with gratitude?

The power of connection

It could be said that everyone is affected by everyone else on the planet. For example consider a meal that you may eat cooked with things from your local supermarket. All components of your meal could be found to come from many different areas of the world, the utensils that you are using and the table and chairs. So indirectly your experience of your meal is being created by many people all around the world. So the idea that you are interdependent could be seen in that example. So the fact is that we all have a reliance on people right across the globe. This leads to the idea that the experience that you gain is made up of the efforts of many people all around the world. Indeed this can show that the experience that you gain in many areas of your life can be found to be attributed to the combined efforts of many people world-wide.

The picture of world-wide gratitude

You can see that we could be now looking at a picture of gratitude which can be seen to extend much further than your local area. This can form an idea that your needs and wants are being satisfied by a large interdependent network across the world. Indeed it can show that you have a great number of people to be grateful to for supplying your needs. This shows how dependent we are on the efforts of each other.

The idea of world-wide gratitude could be a picture that could link mankind in greater harmony, but this is something we will need to consciously work towards. Having true gratitude and looking at the benefits of being interdependent could be the catalyst for greater appreciation. The development of appreciation is something that could be needed in order to provide greater harmony. But by truly looking at how we are affected by millions of people in a positive way, could be a useful way to move your mind to greater thoughts of gratitude for the state of interdependence. What do you think? – Thoughts to make you wonder.

The Real Power of Gratitude

Can real power be found in gratitude? Indeed does the art of appreciation lead to real benefits in your life and the life of other people? Indeed is gratitude something that you should think of consciously everyday, to gain real benefits from life? Also does thoughts of gratitude have an effect on you and other people?

Benefits of Gratitude

It has been suggested by proponents of self-development, that having an attitude of gratitude can be a very important component in the development of a state known as the Law of Attraction. This term is based around the belief that the thoughts and feelings that you have affect the conditions that are attracted to you. It is suggested that the things that you think about with associated feelings can attract things to you. For example if you have thoughts that you are going to have a bad day, and you feel bad as well, it could cause you to begin to have a bad day based on your current state of mind.

So the idea of positive thoughts with the associated good feelings might be the key to having a positive day and feeling good during that day. Indeed it has been said that there is a principle called “cause and effect”, which indicates that the things that you cause in your life will have an effect later in your life. Based on this idea, it means that every decision that you make will have an effect on the events in your life.

Consciously Living the Gratitude Mindset
To have a mindset based on the idea of gratitude, can be something that may take a great deal of effort to develop. But the results that you could gain could make it worth the effort that you put in. It could mean that you would need to consciously focus your mind on looking at the things in life that you are grateful for, even when life seems to be giving you a difficult time. Indeed this could take a great deal of will power, but it could be useful to start with very small achievable goals, this could be better than starting with large un-achievable goals. A small gratitude goal could be all that you need to get moving, and this can lead to you achieving, larger and larger gratitude goals.

Gratitude Goals
Your gratitude goals could be as simple as taking a few minutes each day to be grateful, for your five senses, taking time to focus on how valuable each sense is to you. You could see the abilities that you have and the opportunities around you. Perhaps these thoughts of gratitude could start you thinking in more positive ways. So in doing this your gratitude goals may in-fact begin to transform your life, a little at a time. What do you think? – Thoughts to make you wonder.

The Mastermind concept.

The idea of harmony was spoken of with relation to finding greater success in life.

A mastermind group is a group of about 6 people who meet often to discuss ideas and thoughts. It was said that many of the most successful industrialist at the turn of the twentieth century, were part of mastermind groups. These groups would have conferences and would be able to discuss problems that they had in their businesses, and members would be able to see solutions from another view-point.

The effectiveness of the mastermind idea was one of the reasons why it may have been included in the book “Law of Success” by Napoleon Hill, This book looked at 16 things that successful people had in common. It was a research conducted on 500 self-made millionaires over a 20 year period. Many people who have found success in areas of their life have either consciously or unconsciously practiced the principles.
