Is being grateful a scientific fact for living a better life? Or is it just wishful thinking caused by a new age of hippies and heart centered community lovers?

The reality is, back when I was living on the streets, homeless, and addicted to violence, drugs, sex, and loud music… I was like most people – always focusing on what about my life and the world was wrong, bad, and unfair.

I was focused most of my day on what was bad, who did me wrong, who I was against, who was against me, who didn’t like me and who I didn’t like.

I was like most people when I felt like life was a crapshoot…

…and I was at the other end of the shoot, receiving all the crap.

It wasn’t until I had an awakening in my life at eighteen years old that I realized my life, my choices, my outcomes were not controlled by my external circumstances, but rather, they were controlled by my perception and my choices and my actions that I choice each day.

I struggled for the next four to five years to get my mind under control – to begin directing my focus on what was good about my life, rather than what was bad.

It wasn’t until I was about twenty four years old that I finally began the practice of being grateful for all of the positive things in my life.

I even began a daily practice of gratitude for the things I was working towards, and so desired in my life.

I still have this practice today.

The most amazing thing is that my life has changed in ways that are so profound that I wake up and go to bed feeling grateful for all that I have and for how many people I’ve been able to help.

I’m grateful for being alive, for breathing the air, for making a difference, for eating healthy food, for a beautiful family, and for the community who I’ve been able to help support and transform their lives.

But it wasn’t always easy to be grateful, even when I knew it could change my life.

When you have a wife and daughter to feed, a house to pay for, bills stacking up the wazoo, and a fluctuating and unreliable income, it can be challenging to continue the practice of gratitude.

But I stuck it through, focused on the small things I was grateful for, and one day, as if a waterfall of abundance was building up month after month, it all came raining down and lit up my world.

Gratitude has been a huge contributor to the success of my life, not doubt, but I thought it was interesting that there are scientific studies appearing all the time around the research of being grateful.

Here’s just a couple;

In 2001 the Greater Good Science Center at the University of California, Berkeley—in collaboration with the University of California, Davis—began a $5.6 million, three-year project, Expanding the Science and Practice of Gratitude.

They obviously see the importance and value of understanding the value of gratitude in our daily lives that they are willing to invest five and a half million dollars into it’s research and testing.

And in 2003 there was a study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology around gratitude and it’s effect on the psyche and physiology of the human.

This study had three parts, and each part had three groups of people.  One group that wrote a gratitude journal each day.  One group that wrote a burdens journal each day.  And One group that wrote a neutral journal.

The grateful group reported increased well-being, had better health, exercised more (40 min./week), felt life was better (8% better), and had increased optimism (5% more).  In one of the studies the gratitude group also slept an additional half hour of sleep each night.

They also noticed that journaling for nine weeks instead of two weeks increased the  results.

And there are many more studies out there showing similar outcomes, and new studies appearing all the time.

What we can take from my life, and from some of these scientific studies, is that the more you focus on what you’re grateful for, no matter how large or how small, and the more often you focus on it, the more likely you are to feel better, be healthier, attract that which you desire into your life, and experience a more happy and fulfilling life.

So I want you to start a practice in your life right now.

Do me a favor and comment below this video with what you feel grateful for in your life – right now.

Then start writing that down or thinking about it, and a list of 10-20 things you’re grateful for every morning and every night, just upon awakening and just before falling asleep.

One or two minutes each day is plenty to start.
