An attitude of gratitude. Seems simple, right? Yet many people seem to practice exactly the opposite of it.
Here's something you may not have considered: every time you complain (even silently in your head) you're practicing the opposite of thankfulness.
Gratitude is a word that you likely use without giving much thought.

Contrary to what you might have been taught, feeling grateful is a conscious habit that requires practicing with a present mind.
You were probably conditioned to give lip service to gratitude with quick, courteous but shallow thank you's that carry no actual connection of a feeling of gratitude.
What I'm talking about however, in emphasizing the importance of practicing an attitude of gratitude as an abundance mentality, is to actually feel and be connected to the emotion of gratitude, on a deep core level.
Author Rhonda Byrne certainly emphasizes the use of gratitude as a powerful process of consciously working with The Law of Attraction.
