The Power of Gratitude (PART 1)

Updated: Jul 30, 2023



First things first... Why should you care?

Our emotional state dictates the quality of our life. The 30 Days of Positivity Challenge is a daily personal challenge designed to condition the mind and body to maintain a positive emotional state. Our mindset contributes to 80% of our success. So, this challenge forces you to reprogram your mindset for success. When we're in a good mood and have a positive mindset, the probability of us being more productive, having better relationships, and making more money goes up. On the other hand, when we're in a bad mood and have a negative mindset, the opposite tends to occur.

Imagine living in a mansion but you're always upset, stressed, anxious, or sad. On the other hand, imagine living in a townhouse but you're always peaceful and happy. Your quality of life has everything to do with how you feel about yourself and the world around you. Your focus becomes your future. So, focus on nurturing a positive emotional state. Our feelings give us clues about the state of our emotions and environment, and tell us if we're progressing in the right direction. Progress equals growth. This challenge helps you to grow positive feelings to attract positive people and things into your life.

Let's get started with today's challenge!

Let's Get To The Point

Gratitude is one of the quickest ways to maintain a positive emotional state. During tough times, finding things to be grateful for is a great way to maintain a positive emotional state. Your challenge today is to answer this question: What are you grateful for?

Donnie Thomas:

Hey everybody. I hope everybody's doing well. So today, I decided to start my 30 Days of Positivity Challenge, and I also challenged some of the clients that I coach to also participate in this challenge with me, because I felt like I needed it, I felt like the world needed it, we felt like we needed it, and it would be a fun thing for us to do to be able to lift our vibrations.

Donnie Thomas:

And so, for me, for my first day of positivity, I am focusing on gratitude because I believe that gratitude is the root of positivity because through gratitude we're able to explore and display a lot more complex emotions like love, and patience, and gratitude, and empathy. And so, I will say the one thing that I've been grateful for during this time that we're all experiencing is the stillness. Now, I will never diminish all of the pain that this pandemic has caused in families, and businesses, and individuals because there are a lot of people that are suffering through this pandemic along with us.

Donnie Thomas:

And it's through these times that we need to reach out to one another, and share with another, and educate one another, and uplift one another as much as we can, but I appreciate the stillness because it's like a plant that needs to be re-potted, right? Because we're reaching a point where when a plant grows to a point where it can't grow anymore it needs to be re-potted or it will die. And so, I feel like as a global society, as a local society, we are at a place where we are re-potting ourselves, that we can reposition our thinking towards where we need to be for the future because there are a lot of moving pieces here that we are all not aware of.

Donnie Thomas:

And so, I appreciate this stillness because it's causing in some instances families to become close, friends to solidify relationships, relationships to become stronger, and I appreciate those things. And people are thinking differently about how they're going to move their business forward, how they're going to move forward as individuals, and those things are the things that I appreciate in this time of crisis that a lot of people will see, because sometimes when people see crisis we should be seeing opportunity, right?

Donnie Thomas:

And not opportunity like this is an opportunity for me to take advantage of somebody else, but an opportunity for me to start thinking differently about how I'm running the business of my life, so I'm grateful for the stillness that this situation has created because it's caused me to really do much more introspection, and to continue to challenge myself to get to places of peace that I never thought that I'd be able to reach.

Donnie Thomas:

So with that said, I appreciate you listening to my first day of the Positivity Challenge. I hope that you, yourself, are inspired to start your own 30 Days of Positivity Challenge and I'll talk to you next time. Peace.
