The science of getting rich - gratitude

We continue in our journey to look at the timeless advice contained in the book   by Wallace D. Wattles.

This articles looks at the chapter regarding. The bottom line about this article is simple: "what comes around goes around".

Wattles mentions a law of gratitude. He says that it is absolutely necessary that you should observe this law if you are to get the results you seek. The law of gratitude is the natural principle that action and reaction are always equal and in opposite directions.

The moment you permit your mind to dwell with dissatisfaction upon things as they are, you
begin to lose ground. You fix attention upon the common, the ordinary, the poor and the
Mean. Eventually, you will take the form of these things and then you will transmit these forms, or mental images to your subconscious  and these things will come to you.

I think it is important that no matter where we are in our journey to we always remain grateful for what we have and for what we will achieve. This mindset helps us to remain motivated.

Dwelling in bad experiences and failures will discourage us. If you spend enough time on negative things you will stop focusing on the positive and your mind will move from a positive frame to a negative, which will in consequence affect your actions and you will begin to attract failures and negatives things towards you.

In some ways it is like the one bad apple that spoiled all of the good apples in the basket. Don't let negativism and lack of gratitude ruin your journey towards riches or whatever it is that you are trying to achieve.

Being grateful also helps you to keep things in perspective, to remember where you have come from, how much you have travelled and how much you still have to go.

The grateful mind is constantly fixed upon the best. Therefore it tends to become the best. It takes
the form or character of the best, and will receive the best.
