The Power of Gratitude

An Attitude of Gratitude makes Life Beautiful and Meaningful…
Gratitude is the ability to say ‘Thank You’. To be thankful for what you have and thankful for the
wonderful opportunities life has presented to you. It is the ability to connect with yourself and
make the heart and the mind work on the same frequency. It means that you did something
right or you are at a level of energy where something works for you.

 

Why do so many researchers and studies show that practicing gratitude increases the level of happiness?

 

When you focus on the things that you are grateful for, you increase your level of energy and
allow more good things to walk into your life. When you practice gratitude every single day,
you increase your level of energy on a daily basis and then you start to magnate different
positive things into your life. Therefore, when you make this a daily practice you do not allow anything to “disturb” your calmness, and you unlock the code to happiness.

 

You don’t depend on the outside world for happiness and your happiness is steady and
completely in your control.

 

In addition, no one or no outside situation can harm you. Such a state of mind, makes you feel secure in the world. You have true happiness within you and no situation or no person can change that.
The secret is the balance between thinking and feeling. When you think of something pleasant
your body starts to react to it. So every positive thought filled with gratitude increases the level
of serotonin in your body and “opens your heart”.

The Challenge of feeling yourself with gratitude

 

The challenge is to start being grateful and thankful for all the wonderful things you have around you instead of focusing on the things that you don’t have. By practicing gratitude on a daily basis you can change the way you think and feel, and reprogram your mind, ultimately increasing your level of positive energy.
The final challenge is to start being grateful and direct your feelings positively towards the
things you don’t have. If you know how you feel when you have something or achieve
something, direct this feeling to every area in your life and achieve your desires by practicing
gratitude. In this case, gratitude means to be thankful for a future that is yet to manifest. When
you live a life of gratitude you unlock true happiness and begin your journey towards fulfillment.

What are the most popular positive affirmations?

After three years of reading so many positive affirmations and getting thousands of emails about people’s challenges and successes, I would like to share the positive affirmations people love the most.

For all the people who are not familiar with ThinkUp: it is an app that helps you make your self-talk positive. In addition, with ThinkUp, you choose the mindset you would like to adopt, record positive affirmations in your own voice, and choose your favorite music to go along with them.

 

How does it work?

 

First, choose your affirmations and then record them. Once you’ve recorded your affirmation, we recommend listening to it at least once a day for one month. For better and longer-lasting results, listen to it when going to sleep, that is when your brain is generating Alpha brain waves. The Most important part is the repetition. Through repetition, you can rewire your brain and make your thinking patterns more positive.

 

A list  of the most popular positive affirmations on ThinkUp:

 

1.“I am grateful for the good things in my life.”   Chosen 20403 times

2.“I believe in myself.I have the ability to succeed.”    Chosen 20386 times

3.“The more I focus my mind on the good, the more good comes into my life.”  18083 times

4.“I love myself, respect myself, and accept myself exactly as I am.”   15828 times

5.“I accept myself and know that I am worthy of great things in life.”     15201 times

6.“I deserve to be happy and loved.”  13831 times

7.“I can accomplish anything I set my mind to.”          12264 times

9.“I am willing to step out of my comfort zone.”    9179 times

10.“I am letting go of all my worries and fears.”   8988 times 

 

What should you do when you listen to yourself and the positive affirmations make you angry as if it is not true?

 

If a certain affirmation is provoking an angry or negative reaction, you can revise it and make it softer. For example, if your affirmation is “I love myself” and you don’t believe it when you hear it, try “every day I love my self a bit more.” Your mind will look for evidence that you love yourself more than yesterday.

Practice your happiness

Soup of Happiness

What is happiness?
Can happiness be measured?
Is it possible to be in a state of everlasting happiness?

Happiness is a state of mind. It’s a practice, a concept and something that is beyond measure. There are things and people that make us happy but true happiness can only enter our lives when we allow it too. Yes, it can be controlled and the only person who can control it is you! The problem is that most people believe it’s things and other people that are responsible for our level of joy. When you bring in a paradigm shift towards your understanding of happiness and realize that nothing and no one can give you happiness, except you, then you will be in a forever state of happiness.

Happiness as a soup

Let’s look at this way- happiness is a delectable soup that requires 7 unique ingredients. If you want to perfectly cook it and make every day full of flavor and aroma, you need to bring in these 7 ingredients. While every ingredient in itself is capable of achieving happiness, a combination of all 7 is the perfect mix!

Are you ready to cook up some happiness?

 

Practice your happiness

 

Here are the 7 ingredients you will require…

 

1.Look at the fraction as a whole -Embrace what you have

 

Take it as an 80-20 formula! When something gives you 80% joy and 20% disappointment or unhappiness, focus on the 80% and look at it like it 100%. For example, when you have a baby 80% happiness comes in the form of love and 20% comes in the form of sleepless nights.  Expect only to 80% from any situation. Change the way you think and train yourself to love the unperfect. Every time you want life to be perfect change your perspective and accept the 80% as it 100%. Most of the time an expecting perfect situation will bring only suffer and disappointments. Train yourself to look at the imperfect situation as a perfect one.

 

2.Practice Positivity

 

Happiness comes by practice. When you consciously allow the positive thoughts to take over the negative and make a choice to only allow joy in your life, you will receive it! Every moment gives us a chance to be positive or negative- choose the positive.One way to practice positivity is by the ThinkUp app.

 

3.Make a Difference!

 

There are so many people around us who need help. Donating money to a cause or volunteering to help those in need brings in a sense of satisfaction and joy that is unmatched to happiness received by material things. You can help someone with good advice or just your empathy. Try it, you will feel much better.

 

4.Learn and Grow Every day

 

Never stop learning and never stop growing as an individual. Allow new things and experiences to open up your mind to newer possibilities. Create yourself every day and do something you may have never done or even thought off. Never stop expanding your horizons.

 

5.Make Someone’s day, every day!

 

Every day of life is a new challenge and a new opportunity to help someone or make someone’s day. Reach out to anyone around you who may need your help. Be open and approachable and be someone that people seek when in need.

 

6.Bring out the Child within!

 

All of us have a little child inside who is waiting to be let out! Play, sing, dance, run, laugh, love, paint, create… do everything the child in you wants to do. Don’t stop the child from being a child. Be a child and embrace the child within you.

 

7.Reflect and Introspect

 

Sometimes our happiness gets hidden or buried under other emotions. Take out time to just relax, reflect and introspect about life. Talk to yourself and slowly unburden the mind until it finds its way to the top. Remove everything that is hiding and make it shine and radiate it through all your senses.

These are the 7 unique ingredients that guarantee true happiness in life! Cook it up and nourish your mind and body every day. It’s delicious, addictive and something you don’t want to miss! Happiness is in every corner, waiting to be found and embraced… don’t ignore it! Seek it in everything you do, allow your inner happiness to be the main element in your life and you will never stop being happy. Do you want to be happy? Yes, of course! SO BE!

As you probably know, happiness already exists within you; all you have to do is find it! Be positive, think positive and allow only positivity to rule your life. You are in charge of how you feel and if you decide to feel happy, nothing can stop you! ThinkUp app team

Find Satisfaction with ThinkUp

How to increase your life satisfaction.

All we want in life is to find satisfaction. We are raised to believe that more money, a better job or finding true love is the secret to leading a more satisfied life. But the answer isn’t found in material objects or other people, but rather within ourselves, who we are, and what we do.

 

“Satisfaction is a skill that needs to be developed by practicing”

 

 

Satisfaction is a skill that needs to be developed by practicing, like our other muscles or skills we may have. In order to find satisfaction, first, try to develop gratitude and gratefulness as a skill. Complaining all the time and focusing on your challenge will decrease your energy level. Furthermore, it will continue to make your problem continue to grow.  

If you would like to stop the process of being unsatisfied, I suggest you to start finding positive things in everything you do. Try to learn how to focus on the good things and practice that skill daily.

 

Let me share with you my personal story.

 

While I was in my 20’s I received my degree and started to work in a high tech company as an engineer. I earned a lot of money, especially for a newly graduated student, had a boyfriend that I loved, and had a nice job. But my soul felt that something was imprecise and still missing in my life.

Then, for the first time of my life, I felt that something was “wrong” with me.

 

“Start finding positive things in everything you do”

 

Find Satisfaction with ThinkUp

“How could it be that everything was in my hand, I have everything I wanted and yet still feel miserable”?
”How could it be that all of the creation stands for me and yet I am still complaining?

 

This job probably wasn’t my purpose or one of my strengths but 20 years later I look at things a bit differently. My suggestion is to find the happiness inside of yourself. The outside circumstances never make you happy if you are not trained to be happy. We all find reasons to be unhappy but if you want to enjoy the life and find the satisfaction I suggest you to focus your mind on the things make you feel uplifted, stronger, and empowered you.

Life doesn’t need to be perfect.

A great exercise to help practice gratitude and the skill of being happy.

  • Download the ThinkUp app from the AppStore.
  • Write down 10 things that you grateful for.
  • Choose music that you like.
  • Listen to your personalized affirmations for one month while going to sleep at least 20 minutes a day.

Please keep practicing and write in the comments below what it does for you.You don’t need to memorize or put any extra effort into this. After one month your satisfaction skills will be much developed and you will be able to look at things a bit differently.

This exercise has helped out so many people that wanted to help themselves, so why wouldn’t it work for you? You are worth the effort.

increase self-esteem

6 Ways to Increase Self-Esteem

Would you like to increase self-esteem?

If you are prone to harsh self-judgments or negative self-talk, you may be holding yourself back from happiness and opportunities. The unspoken words inside of our heads, the ones that make up our unending internal string of private thoughts, emotions and attitudes shape how we think about everything around us.

When those words are negative, they are embedded deep within our brains and make our experience harder.

 

Here are 7 ways to help you improve your self-talk to positive and help you increase self-esteem

 

1. Change your self-talk to positive

 

One of the best ways to increase self-esteem is through starting the day with positive affirmations. Simple “I am” statements can have so much power. Think about what is decreasing your self-esteem, and create an affirmation to counter it. Repeat your affirmations throughout the day, and you will eliminate self-limiting dialogue.

 

2. ThinkUp

 

One way to reprogram your mind for positivity is by using the ThinkUp app. ThinkUp is a self-help app which enables you to develop a healthier mindset. This app allows you to record your voice reading affirmations. With the recordings and relaxing music of your choice, you can use this app to create a personal meditation that inspires you. Your brain trusts and understands your voice more than anyone else’s. Try out the free version of this helpful tool, and embrace your inner strength.

 

Overcome challenges with ThinkUp

 

3. Recognize Your Uniqueness

 

There is no one on this planet like you. Consider what are your strengths. Maybe you are creative, or your work ethic is driven by your powerful story. Do you have a strong passion for something? Is there something that you do so well that other people can’t help but take notice? Own that uniqueness, and use it to look at the world in a new way.

 

4. Reward Yourself

 

When something goes well because of your actions, treat yourself. Often we don’t take the time to give ourselves a pat on the back. A reward doesn’t have to be lavish, but by appreciating yourself, you are establishing a practice of self-love.

If someone notices your work and offers a compliment, accept it. You have won their esteem, and they recognize your value. Know that you have done something well, and use that to boost your sense of self.

 

6. Read Inspirational Books or movies

 

Reading the inspiring stories of others can motivate a shift in your mindset. If you need help owning your greatness, read books or see inspirational movies. I personally like to her inspirational lectures on YouTube while I am exercising. Through hearing about the struggles that others have overcome, you may find strength. Choose a sentence or phrase from an inspirational work, and create a meditation around it.

 

7. Find Positive Friends

 

The people with whom we share our space can impact how we feel about ourselves. Seek the people that accept you for who you are. These positive people will encourage you to let your light shine, and they will reflect back the light that you put forth.

Work on the self will improve your quality of life and will help you to increase self-esteem. You will notice that new opportunities arise as you learn to love and accept yourself.
