10 Ways to Actively Create Gratitude and Humility.

I don’t believe people find gratitude and humility difficult to acknowledge in themselves. I believe people simply don’t give attention or priority to them as often as necessary to make them driving forces in their daily actions.

When we slow down and acknowledge our reality, gratitude and humility become the natural and obvious realizations.

The key then is to create easy to access mental triggers that keep them in focus.

Here are 10 of my favorite ways.

  1. Imagine your life if you were born 200 years ago in the same place.
  2. Imagine if the three best things, or people, in your life had never happened.
  3. Imagine if only a few major world events had gone differently.
  4. Imagine if the people who believed in you had overlooked you.
  5. Imagine who you would have and what you would do if you lost all your money.
  6. Imagine all the people lying awake at night wanting what you have.
  7. Imagine the time and effort it used to take to do the things we easily do now.
  8. Imagine all the people from the past who lived out their lives with the cards they were dealt just like you also do.
  9. Imagine the people you would like to be connected with but they don’t know who you are.
  10. Imagine the mistakes from your past where you avoided any serious consequences and the good fortune when great outcomes happened despite average effort by you.

Gratitude and humility are not difficult concepts. They’re not even difficult to feel. But if you don’t actively create them in your life, they are easy to ignore and sometimes forget.

Everything is training for something. Do the work.
