Gratitude is the readiness to show appreciation for and to return the kindness. All self-help books preach that gratitude is amongst the most important practices in the world. Those who feel grateful for what they have on a regular basis tend to attract more of what they want into their lives.
Students, if you include the practice of gratitude in your life, you will begin to experience change both in academics and in your personal life. At a young age, it is easier to absorb new habits. So, the sooner you start practising gratitude, the faster life will begin to change for good.
Every day when you wake up, just think of 5-10 things that you are grateful for. It can be anything, your parents, your siblings, your recent achievements, your latest purchases, anything that makes you feel thankful can go on the list.
No matter how little you have, appreciate it. If you have scored 10/20 in a paper, try to feel grateful for the ten that you have scored, it will be difficult, but try.
To add on, don’t forget to thank your teachers, your parents, your friends and your loved ones for the little things that they do for you.
In just a day or two, you will see things changing. Please remember that to attract more of anything, you must be thankful for whatever you have.
Oprah Winfrey once said, “The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.”
So, go ahead, celebrate your life by feeling grateful.
