A great gratitude exercise is what I call Gratitude, Intention and Delegation (GIDs). Every day I have a group of people that I do this with. Every day I will write out what I’m grateful for: I am grateful for my family, I’m grateful for my kids, I’m grateful for my customers. I just start to write out everything that I’m grateful for.

Then I set my intentions. Intentions are about how I want to feel and what I want to experience that day. That’s how I define intentions in this exercise, so I will intend to feel creative. I intend to be inspired. I intend to be empowering.

With intentions you get into feeling, being, and experiencing states. Then I make delegations. A lot of times the things that I want are a little beyond what I know how to create, so what I do is I use a method that I learned from Jerry and Esther Hicks. I delegate them to the universe. I say, “I’m so thankful to the universe for providing me with three opportunities this month to make $50,000 dollars or something better.” I always add “or something better” at the very end, so gratitude, intention and delegation. Me, personally, I like to do it with a group and have a structure where everybody’s sending it to each other. It is much more powerful.

You’re going to find that practicing gratitude is going to make a huge difference. As you’re walking around throughout your day, spend time appreciating the beauty of everything around you. Just that state of appreciating beauty will put you into an incredible state. Try these techniques of using gratitude, intention and delegation, while appreciating the beauty all around you. It will make a profound difference in your life.
