Gratitude is an important part of manifesting our desires, and when the going gets tough, many of us forget to express our gratitude for the good things in our lives.
Instead, we tend to focus on the tough stuff–and attract more of it into our lives (instead of the things we really want.)
Simply put, the best way to bring more good into your life is to be happy and grateful for the good things you’ve already got.
So, when you feel like nothing is going your way, take a moment to think about the things that are working in your life–the good stuff.
