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. There is a principle called “Cause and Effect” which generally means that the things that you do will cause an effect later in your life. So by being grateful for good deeds that are done to you can lead to many more good deeds being done in your life. This can suggest that having an attitude of appreciation can prove to be a very useful trait. Developing the habit of showing appreciation could be found to be a valuable asset to have. So you may see that being grateful could bring you benefits.

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. So this could give grounds for a belief, that you may have the means within you to communicate on a psychic level. This being said, you could find that thoughts of gratitude may indeed give you benefits. What do you think? – Thoughts to make you wonder.

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.
