Cultivating Gratitude through Service

If you have read anything about the Law Of Attraction, you will most likely have read about how gratitude can activate this Universal truth.

While the concept of gratitude is simple, be grateful for all you have, stirring these feelings can be a bit more difficult.

It is pretty easy to intellectually know that  do have a lot to be grateful for — friends, family, heath, a home, food, etc — but it is sometimes difficult to emotionally feel grateful.

Today I want share with you a way to kick start those feelings of gratitude!

I’m talking about service. Now “service” can mean a lot of things, but at its foundation is doing for others for the plain reason of helping them.  Not because you want something in return, but just because.

When you do this you will find that it makes you feel good (another Law Of Attraction activation force) and it also makes feeling grateful flow through you with ease.

I think this is because by helping others you find a deep inner worth and this makes you at first feel grateful for being you and then allows you to “see” all the other things that you have to be grateful for.

But how do you serve?

There are many ways to serve.  It can be as simple as holding the door for someone or stopping and helping someone with a flat tire.

There are many other places to serve.  Here are few ways to find some opportunities:

  1. Look on VolunteerMatch.org and enter your zipcode.
  2. Call your local Human Society
  3. Contact a local Church.  They have many opportunities within the church and are also connected to many local charities that can always use a helping and loving hand.

Now, you don’t have to spend 40 hours a week serving others.  If you even take one weekend or night a month to start you will find that the time you spend helping will be repaid a hundred times in many different forms.

One last suggestion.  When you serve, do it not for yourself, but because of your love for others.
