If you’ve heard anything about the law of attraction, it’s likely that abundance principle was mentioned at some point. The idea behind the abundance principle is simple: acknowledge all that you have in your life and celebrate it! When you begin to genuinely appreciate what you have, then you open up more space in your life to receive even more positive things. When thinking about abundance, it helps to focus on three main things: gratitude, positivity, and celebration.
Why We Need to Acknowledge the Good in Our Lives
It’s hard to feel abundance when we’re constantly noticing what’s wrong with our lives.
This is because we are trying to measure our happiness by looking at all of the things that are wrong in comparison to all of the things that are right.
We need to take a step back and acknowledge everything that is going well, even if it’s small or difficult for us to notice.
In order for there to be more good than bad, we need to make room for it by focusing on our strengths and talents and recognizing them as blessings rather than just taking them for granted.
Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.
How Acknowledging the Good Leads to More Good
It’s easy to get caught up in negativity, but if you want more good things in your life it’s important to acknowledge the good that already exists. When you’re grateful for what you already have, it’ll open up your mind and heart to new possibilities.
For example, when I was unhappy with my job I started looking for a new one without much success. But then I started thinking about all the great things I had going on personally and professionally and started feeling better about my current situation. The next day after my shift at work I received an email from a headhunter who was looking for someone with my skillset—the same skillset I’ve been honing for years!
Practical Ways to Acknowledge the Good in Your Life
- List three things that you’re grateful for today and what they mean to you.
- Reflect on your day and list one thing that made it great.
- Think about an event or person who brought joy into your life recently, and write a letter to them telling them how they impacted your life and why you’re grateful for them.
- Keep a gratitude journal where you write about anything that makes you happy or makes you feel lucky just to be alive, like having access to clean water or being able to live in a peaceful country with freedom of speech.
Why It’s Important to Be Grateful for What You Have

But practicing gratitude is an important part of living a fulfilled and abundant life. This week, we’ll explore why it’s important to practice gratitude and how to do it.
