Power Of Being Grateful

“Gratitude is a powerful catalyst for happiness. It’s the spark that lights a fire of joy in your soul.” – Amy Collette

We are successful because we have enough money. Really! Does being rich means that we are successful ?

We are successful when we learn to stay happy within limited resources while staying progressive. Gratitude is one of the key factors for self-satisfaction that we all have to practice from the very beginning. We can start feeling grateful and appreciative in our lives by using the following steps:

  • Start finding good about everyone. Pen down at least one good quality of the person with whom you have come in contact with, irrespective of your experience with them.

  • Start absorbing good things from others.

  • Expressing gratitude by using "Thank you", "you are so kind", "you are the best", etc., will build your bond with others in a positive mode.

  • Start appreciating the things god has given us like food, water, clothes, house, good health, etc.

  • Be in a practice to pen down good things that came across during the day in your gratitude diary.

  • Always pray before having your meals.

  • Be expressive to share your feeling to tell people what they mean to you.

  • Be kind. Help your friends when they ask for your support in academics or their personal life.

  • Don’t be judgemental. We all make mistakes, we all fall, we all rise. We all learn from our mistakes.

Gratitude is like a muscle, as we use it, it builds stronger.

It seems to be a challenge to make a child thankful for homework or chores. This challenge enables them to see what is good about homework. Making them grateful about homework will help them to learn and prepare them for school and life.

We can have a fun activity to develop interest and practice gratitude in the classroom. Ask students to pen down gratitude on sticky notes and to put them on the classroom door, so that they get a positive reminder every time they enter or exit the classroom. This idea can be practiced at home too and believe me it works. It has magical results in the child’s behaviour.

Maintaining a gratitude diary enables both students and adults to be more optimistic, satisfied, and less envious of hatred or depression. It also brings positive results in a lesser number of physical problems and mental stress. Gratitude has transformed many lives. If we make our students learn to focus on the good, good will come to them. For me, the fruit of the focus on gratitude is happiness. Latest research also points to gratitude as a potential bridge between students’ scholastic and co-scholastic.
