Why Gratitude is Important

Why Gratitude is Important

Every year people reflect on what they are grateful for on Thanksgiving. While the annual tradition is good, gratitude is something we should have and practice every day. Gratitude is being grateful or thankful for someone or something. Gratitude is important because it is impossible to be grateful and negative at the same time. When you are grateful, you are happy. If you only focus on what you do not have, you will never have enough. Being grateful also opens you up to receive more. Where there is appreciation, there is duplication. Below are four key lessons on gratitude.

Anthony Robbins – Gratitude is the antidote for the two things that stop us: fear and anger. Fear is why we do not take action. Anger is why we get stuck. You cannot be grateful and fearful or angry at the same time.

David Steindl-Rast – There is a connection between gratefulness and happiness. When you are grateful, you are happy. It is not happiness that makes you grateful, it is gratefulness that makes you happy.

Oprah Winfrey – If you focus on what you have, you will always have more. If you focus on what you do not have, you will never have enough. When grateful, you will be more alive and respect of the goodness that comes to you.

Steve Harvey – Gratitude and the lack of it is one of the biggest blessing blockers there is in life. When you are grateful, you open yourself to receive more. If you are not grateful for what you have, why would God give you more?

TD Jacks – Everything you can touch, see and feel is a gift from God greater than you. Gratitude and thankfulness align your attitude to a place of appreciation. Where there is appreciation, there is duplication.
