Can you imagine what a different world we would live in if everyone practiced gratitude? There would be so much more love and care in the world if we would all just take a little bit of time each day to express thanks for the things and the people we have in our lives.

Gratitude can be such a powerful force for good. Think about the last time someone expressed true gratitude towards you. How did that make you feel? It is energizing, uplifting and motivating to feel appreciation from others.

Not only that, but it puts out a positive energy into the world around you and creates an environment of peace and positivity, which in turn can help you be more productive in your life. As you lift your spirits with gratitude and enthusiasm, you can be motivated to put more good into the world and generate a legacy of abundance around you.

Every goal that you have set for yourself begins first with a single positive thought. The more you can find ways to generate positivity and abundance around you, the more you will attract success into your life.

I think one of the worst insults would be to be called an “ungrateful” person. Maybe you know someone like this in your life. They have probably been given everything they have without having to work for it, and they have never appreciated it.

They have developed a sense of entitlement that makes them cold, harsh and unlikeable. I definitely know people like this and they are not fun people to be around. Think about it, ungrateful people are arrogant and are often spoiled, unteachable and set in their ways. They don’t always see other people’s perspectives because they have been blinded by pride and a perceived superiority over others.

On the other hand, think about people you know who are peace givers. They are grateful, humble, kind and loving. They go about the world doing good and leaving things better than they found them.

GRATITUDE precedes GREATNESS.

 

This is why gratitude is such an integral part of the G-Code. When living by the G-Code, the first thing you do each day is to record at least 5 things you are grateful for. The more you do this, the more you get your mind to open up to positivity and abundance, which ultimately leads to greatness in all that you do. You will have a renewed drive and excitement to help sustain you on your path to your goals.

You will also notice that as you continue to acknowledge things you are grateful for, that you will begin to see a pattern around you of others doing the same. People who may not have shown you gratitude before will see that joy in you and will begin to reciprocate that to others. It can create a positive ripple effect with everyone around you.

Here are 5 benefits of gratitude:

Strengthens Your Relationships. When you are taking the time every day to look for the good in people around you and acknowledging the people you care about, it can only have positive effects on those relationships. People will feel more loved when they feel appreciated, and you will develop closer, deeper relationships as a result.
When you take the time to express gratitude to those around you, make sure that you are open, honest and sincere. Sometimes we assume that people know how we feel, but it’s really important that they actually hear those words from you.

Improves Communication With Others. This kind of goes along with number 1, because as you learn to show gratitude, it can tear down walls, and open lines of communication that otherwise may not be there. It can cause a reciprocal effect around you that will make people want to be around you and want to work with you. Also, when you find the need to give someone constructive criticism, expressing gratitude and appreciation for that person is so important and can help preserve relationships. Remember that gratitude is a two-way street. When other people express gratitude to you, make sure you graciously accept their kindness.

Helps You Reach Your Goals. The more you practice gratitude in your life, the more it instills a feeling of selflessness and abundance. This is more than just a temporary burst of positive energy, but when done consistently every day, it has a staying power that can give you the boost you need to stay focused and motivated toward accomplishing your goals.
Don’t wait until the end of the day to think about your gratitude. Make it the first thing you do each morning, so that throughout the day you can be thinking of those things and letting that positivity energize you first thing to help sustain you through the day.

Preserves Memories. Have you ever heard of a gratitude journal? Well, this is a way that you can keep track of all the things you are grateful for, and will be a keepsake for you.
If you don’t want to keep a detailed journal, the G-code app is a perfect option for you because you just open it daily and enter the things you are grateful for that day.
Tracking gratitude is a way to keep you focused on those things that will enrich your life with positivity and abundance and ultimately lead you towards becoming the most elite version of yourself.

Repels The Force of Average. Showing gratitude might seem like an unselfish thing meant to benefit those around you, but the reality is that you sincerely benefit from it as well. When you express daily gratitude, it changes the way you think and the way you live.

The force of average that bombards us daily with negativity and inferiority can be kept at bay by the positive impact of a daily dose of vitamin G-code. This is a powerful inoculator of mediocrity, so don’t starve yourself of this incredible “supplement” to success.

When you face a difficult situation or have a tough day, especially with loved ones, just think of the big picture and realize that rainy days don’t last forever. We all have numbered days on this earth and life is too short to live with grudges and regrets, so cherish every moment you have as though it were your last.
