My life has lost health, happiness and prosperity when I put my focus on the wrong thoughts. Perhaps, this has happened to you as well.
Then life changes for the better when I remember to be grateful for what I have.
I have written before about how to use an elastic band to change your mind for the better in an article titled One Snap Action to Change Your Thinking.
About a week ago I watched again the original version of the movie The Secret with my children and after the movie I saw an elastic band on the kitchen counter and I became inspired.
I thought may be I could wear an elastic band on my wrist and use it in a totally different way to what I wrote about in One Snap Action to Change Your Thinking.
I put the elastic band on my wrist.
Now every time I see the elastic band on my wrist (which is really an odd thing to be wearing on my wrist beside my watch) I am jolted to think of some experience in my day I am grateful for.
This has, in fact, brought many a smile to my face recently as I was having a rough time since one of my close friends is in hospital and I need to keep my focus on being grateful for what I have.
Go! Get an elastic band, put it on your wrist today and use it as a reminder to remember how wonderful life really is.
