The Power of Gratitude

One of the most powerful Truth Tools is Gratitude. It is absolutely amazing how using this tool can chase away the vexing thin in your life—for one thing it changes how you see life and it also brings joy to moments in which we normally overlook the joy. 

To help sharpen this tool, make a commitment that for the next 21 days you will identify three things that you are grateful for that happened that day. It can be something you see or experience or do and to facilitate the sharpening process you must write those three things down each night before you go to bed.  

As the days go by while doing this you can feel yourself change. While going about your day knowing that at night you are going to have to record three things, you find yourself looking for good all day long. And you find things to be grateful for in some surprising places! Writing it down at night brings back the warm memories of what you discovered that day and reinforces the good feelings which contribute to a peaceful night’s sleep. Three weeks of doing this makes it a habit—a habit you won’t want to break.
