The Life-Changing Way to Have Gratitude

Don’t dedicate only one day of the year to be grateful.

Here are quotes Wallace D. Wattles, 1860 – 1911, wrote in his classic book The Science of Getting Rich.

Wattles was the inspiration for the book and movie The Secret.

It’s a key to manifest whatever you choose in your life, too!


There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.

A thought, in this substance, produces the thing that is imaged by the thought.

A person can form things in his thought, and, by impressing his thought upon Formless Substance, can cause the thing he thinks about to be created… 

Our gratitude liberates an energy within us that immediately expands into the Formless Substance, where it is instantly returned to us in kind…

And if your gratitude is strong and constant, the reaction in Formless Substance will be strong and continuous; the movement of the things you want will be always toward you…

It is necessary, then, to cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you; and to give thanks continuously.

Wallace D. Wattles, The Science of Getting Rich

What’s the life-changing way to have gratitude?

During a group discussion of the above-mentioned book by Wattles, I suddenly heard this quote in a new way. It’s not just occasional gratitude, it’s living in a state of gratitude – continuous gratitude.

Gratitude, continuous gratitude, will change your life!

I made a decision for this moment, and then extending it to this minute (more moments), this hour, today, this week, lifetime and beyond, to give thanks continuously. 

Will you join me?

Inevitably, I will get distracted from my choice to live in continuous gratitude. I do know that the more I practice it, my life continues to improve.

However, when I catch myself straying into the hinterlands, I’m not going to get upset with myself. I can shift my focus away from lack, worries, any kind of pain, my pity pot, complaining or what’s not working to being grateful for what’s working and what I have, instead.

It won’t matter how many times I fall off my wagon of continuous gratitude; I can always get back on.

So can you.

Sometimes all you need is to look at life from a different perspective.

Happy Days of Continuous Gratitude and Giving Thanks!
