Did you know that you get more of what you focus your attention on?
So if you'd like fewer problems and more joy in life, inject a little gratitude into your conversation. Crinkle someone's universe by saying something like “Wow I'm so grateful for that awesomely tough deadline today! It just made me laugh it was so tight!” or “I am really grateful for him lying to me straight away, because now I know that's what he might do and I won't get caught out!” or “How did we get so lucky with the blue sky today – how much fun can we have?”
What if you found one thing to be grateful for every day and told someone? Perhaps you'll surprise them and they'll stop complaining mid-stream? You may even infect them with gratitude and spread it to others? Or you may just have giggle on your own.
So ask“What am I grateful for today?”
