It’s time to take inventory! Remember I mentioned that in my last post? Let’s dig a little deeper. I’m always talking about gratitude and being grateful. Being grateful is what helps you take inventory of your life. Simply acknowledging that you truly have something to be grateful for is TAKING INVENTORY of your life. Keep doing that!
I want you to get into the habit of doing this daily and I’m going to help you! Below I’m going to provide you some tips on creating a habit of taking inventory.
Step 1: Get a journal or notebook
Step 2: Set aside 30 minutes every night right before bed to write in your journal
Step 3: Think of all the things that you’re grateful for in your life
Many of the successful people you follow guarantee has a gratitude journal. I’ve especially started seeing people talking about having these or starting one as of lately. During a time where spirituality is beating out religion and has almost become the singular religion for millennials, everyone’s intentions are to practice the mantra positive vibes only. Especially when they’re reading and seeing many of their favorite celebrities claim that having a positive mind and being intentional has helped them manifest everything they’ve desired. We all want a peace of the pie and that’s why many of us have started to practice self-care rituals and have placed more urgency on taking care of ourselves not only just physically but emotionally, mentally and spiritually as well.
We all want abundant lives as well and there’s nothing wrong with that. Now, I’m not a trendy person. In fact, I’m typically the person that tends to go against the grain. I value exclusivity. I’ve always disliked having something that everyone else has etc, however, I have jumped on the trend and highly support these teachings not because it’s trending but because I believe in what the teachings are exposing. The Law of Attraction is real and I will keep telling you this as many times as I feel necessary because I know it to be true. I’ve said before that I’ve been manifesting things way before I knew what manifestation was. I was simply doing what I had been taught by my family, the church and my environment they just didn’t call it that.
It was taught in sayings such as, “Be grateful for what you have or it’ll disappear before you know it,” “Count Your Blessings,” and “Thank God for your blessings in advance,” and “Have faith that everything will work out”. All of these sayings showcase thought processes that are necessary in helping you manifest what you desire, they just don’t tell us that’s what we’re doing. Occasionally throughout my life I’ve heard the word manifest or manifestation thrown around in church sermons or everyday life but it was just recently that I truly understand what it meant. This is why I choose to continue to help promote this concept because I know it works and I’m excited to continue exercising this myself now that I know what I’m actually dealing with. I challenge you to take your gratitude journal and every night write down 10 things that you’re grateful for.
Take one of your gratitudes and journal about it. Write about how it makes you feel and emotionalize it. Now this is what taking full inventory of your life looks like. You’ll tap into how happy you actually are because you have all these things and it’ll help you to remember how having all these things make you feel rather than focus on the current moment of life’s discomforts. That’s why you may have often seen people talking about being present or living in the presence. When you do the things I mentioned above it’ll help you live in the present and truly enjoy your life instead of living in the past and fearing the future. Newsflash: The future is now!
Until next time,
Stay Ambitious, Stay Motivated
