The Power of Appreciation

By Song ChengXiang

There is a powerful force within each one of us that you can use to overcome any obstacles, no matter how bad the situation is. Once you know how powerful this force is and how it works, you will never have to worry about anything in your life, no fears, no worries, and no anxieties. Life becomes an easy and fulfilling process. You start to enjoy your life; you start to enjoy every moment of your existence.

Are you getting excited about knowing what this power is? The powerful force that I am making reference to is "The power of appreciation."

Yes, it is the power of appreciation. If you want to win, and win big in life, you have to know the power of appreciation, and you have to know how it works, and live by it. This is the secret weapon that you can use to win the battle of life, no matter how bad your current circumstances are. Don't let its simplicity fool you. Just this one simple idea will completely change your life.

Ok, let me make a clear statement, let it enter your subconscious mind. "No matter what circumstance you encounter, no matter what situation you are in, you always have the choice of finding something to appreciate in it, and you can immediately change your point of attraction at that moment!"

Remember, the quality of your life is determined by the quality of this moment. And you have a choice in every moment. You can choose to feel depressed and unhappy, or you can choose to find something to appreciate, and change your point of attraction immediately.

OK, now you ask "How can I find something to appreciate?"

Let's do a simple exercise...

Stop whatever you are doing now, find something right here that you can appreciate. Go ahead, find something.

Have you got it? If you haven't, let me remind you of something. No matter who you are, and where you are, I can assure you that you at least have one thing to appreciate, just because you are reading this. Have you got it? Yes! You got it... It is the internet! How wonderful it is that we can have access to the internet and find literally any information we want in minutes. Now, stop for a moment, and really feel it. What does that make you feel? Think about how fortunate you are, compared to those people living in third world countries where they don't even have a computer. Hold on to the good feeling for a few seconds, really feel it. If you can keep it for 17 seconds, your life will dramatically change. I guarantee you.

This is just an example to demonstrate how you can find something to appreciate anytime and anywhere. It is actually very simple, it only takes a few seconds here and a few seconds there, and your life will never be the same. You will find yourself full of energy and happiness.

Appreciate the food that you eat, appreciate the air that you breathe, appreciate the sunshine, appreciate the relationship that you are in, appreciate the room that you are sitting in. Appreciate everything.

Well, you may say "The food that I eat is not as good as what the rich eat", "the air that I breathe is not as good as the air in another city", "the relationship that I am in is not as fulfilling as it should be", "the room that I live in is not as big as I want". Maybe all these are true, but it is true only because you have chosen to perceive it this way. And the important thing is you can perceive it in a different way right at this moment. Ok, think about the food you are eating. Do you know there are millions of children in Africa who do not have enough to eat? Think about the relationship that you are in. Don't you remember that last time your partner gave you a hug when you were facing a major challenge? Don't you remember all the wonderful things that your partner has done for you over the years? Instead of focusing on what he/she did wrong, why not focus on what he/she did right? More importantly, appreciate him/her; appreciate what your partner has done for you.

So you get my point, there are always positive and negative aspects to any circumstances or any people, you can either focus on the negativities and blame what is wrong, or you can choose to appreciate the positive aspect and what is right. This will make a big difference to the quality of your life. I have to repeat, don't let the simplicity of this idea fool you, practice appreciating here and there, and you will find miracles in your life.

Beware of Garbage Trucks
How often do you let other people's nonsense change your mood? Do you let a bad driver, rude waiter, curt boss, or an insensitive employee ruin your day?

The Law of Attraction at its very basic level states that everything is created by thought and that thought attracts to itself physical things, people, situations and circumstances. Your thoughts are attracting these things in this very moment!

There is only one you. There is no one else like you and there will never ever be anyone else like you. You have a gift to offer that can touch the world in a way that no other person's gift can do. It is not the gift but it is you.
Every person is significant in their contribution no matter what it is.

Bad Luck ... Or Blessing In Disguise?
