How To Quickly Manifest Your Dreams

Gratefulness is not something reserved for Thanksgiving. We should all make an effort to be appreciative for all we have every single day. Day eleven of the Twelve Days of Crysmas is all about gratitude.

Day Eleven: Attitude of Gratitude

The key to manifesting anything in your life is to practice gratitude. Once you’ve set your intentions, there’s no need to continue to worry about them. Worrying about what could happen, what might happen, and what could go wrong will only cause those things to manifest in your life because what you focus on magnifies (Click to Tweet).

Instead of focusing your energy on things you know will happen when they’re supposed to, be obsessively grateful for everything that you have. Show your appreciation for the things you have even if they aren’t the things you necessarily want. You may not like your job or your boss or your coworkers, but you have a job and many people are without. You will not receive a better job or better coworkers until you appreciate the ones you currently have. It may be difficult, but the things you really want typically require some level of discomfort.

I always make it a point to not only express gratitude for the things that I have, but also the things I don’t have. I’ve asked for a lot of things that I either didn’t get, or I got them, and then realized it wasn’t actually what I wanted, and it was taken away. Be thankful for the things and people who are no longer in your life. Often, when doors close and chapters end, it takes a lot of emotional labor to get past it, which is why I wrote Your Guide to Beating Heartbreak. It’s difficult, but in healing, you realize that losing that person was a great thing because it helps you move to the next level. It’s hard to climb higher when someone is weighing you down, so be thankful that the dead weight has been cut and you’re now able to reach another level.

If all you do is say thank you before getting out of bed and/or before going to sleep, it’s enough. Take nothing you have for granted because, at any moment, it can all be taken away.

What are you grateful for today?

  • Sapphire Kharyzma

    When I think about gratitude, I get to thinking about journaling! It’s an awesome practice to express gratitude. I need to get back into the swing of things!

  • Natasha

    It seems that I’m being directed to be grateful in the midst of my storm lately, and I’m hearing it loud and clear. I do know that sometimes focusing on what we’re grateful for can sometimes just look like list making, but it still doesn’t mean that we aren’t grateful. I’m working on DAILY stating what makes me grateful, and not always focusing on material things too.

    What a great message for the start of a new year. Being grateful and showing gratitude has always been a useful tool never more than now.

  • Nicole Williams

    It is indeed important to remember to be thankful. Practicing the attitude of gratitude also helps you to live in the moment {to learn to appreciate the things that are in the present].

  • Mimi Green

    I am grateful for the family I created.In particular my daughter, she turns 6 on Friday. She was the perfect addition to round out our family of four.

  • Kita

    I practice gratitude daily and I totally agree with this. Gratitude has a way of bringing you back to the present.

  • Jaye

    I live in a state of gratitude…my response to how I am doing is “I am grateful” because I truly am, for everything, good and bad. It all adds value in one way or another.

  • Eva Wilson

    Be “obsessively grateful.” I LOVE that idea. I think I will share that idea with my family – especially the kids.

  • Courtney CJ

    So the funny thing is I’m friends with the woman in your cover photo. She’s a BEAST at mindfulness. But to answer your question, I’m grateful that my boss has returned to work after a 5-week vacation. She’s a wonderful leader that works by my side and has made my transition into my new career a lot easier. Everyone doesn’t have a great relationship with their manager and realize that I am blessed in that regard.

  • Tiffany Haywood

    Today I am grateful for insight. I felt myself going into a spiral over a few things and was able to pull myself free. I am grateful for the ability to not get lost in the negative but instead use the positive around me to find a release.

  • ShaBree

    Gratitude is the doorway to happiness. Love this ronstart the new year.
