I want to share with you the most important daily ritual that I have in my life. I practice this ritual every day and it has made a big difference in my life over many years. That ritual is the power of gratitude.
I believe that gratitude is one of the most important emotions that you can experience.
Like any emotion, you have to proactively and consistently practice it every single day in order to embody it fully. If you fail to acknowledge and appreciate the blessings in your life, than what is the point of receiving more?

If we all stopped for a moment and looked around us, we would find endless things that we have that others would only dream of – clothes, food, clean water, shelter, etc. The list goes on and on. Research by UC Davis psychologist Robert Emmons, author of Thanks!: How the New Science of Gratitude Can Make You Happier, shows that simply keeping a gratitude journal can significantly increase well-being and life satisfaction.
No matter how horrible you think your life is, gratitude is always the antidote. Appreciate and enjoy the little things in life, because these will be the moments that you remember most. Dan Millman once said, “Life is a series of moments. The quality of attention and action that we bring to each moment determines the quality of our lives”.
As you reflect on each day, ask yourself, “What moment stood out for you that made you smile?”
So many people wait until something big happens in order to celebrate and experience happiness. If you do so, you will not enjoy your life on a daily basis. If you constantly live in your head, you aren’t able to be present. You end up becoming your worst critic, and you start looking at things from a negative lens.
Your head is always going to analyze everything, whereas your heart has no limits. The more grateful that you are every day, the happier that you will be, and the more positive things that you will attract into your life. Take a moment and ask yourself, “What are three things that I am grateful for?”
John F. Kennedy said it best – “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them”.
Make gratitude a part of your daily ritual. Live by your words and be appreciative for what you have.
