As a law of attraction practitioner, I have come to understand just how powerful gratitude is in our life and business. For those of you are new to the idea of the law of attraction, let me give you a really quick run down. The law of attraction draws to you that which you focus your attention on the most and that which you are a match for.

There are 3 key steps in the law of attraction process.
- Raise your vibrations
I want to focus on raising your vibrations just for a minute so that you understand why gratitude in your business is so important.
Law of attraction and gratitude
I’m not going to go too deep into talking about the law of attraction other than to say that the way we monitor our vibrations (the energy we are sending out) is through the way we feel. The energy at any given moment is either POSITIVE or NEGATIVE. The idea is that when you feel negative, you are a match for negative things coming into your life. When you are feeling positive, you are a match for positive things coming into your life.
So it’s in our best interest to feel positive as much of the time as possible.
One of the easiest ways to stay positive and indeed switch from negative to positive quickly is to focus on GRATITUDE.
Gratitude is what I call our SUPER POWER EMOTION
Using the power of gratitude in your business
Okay, so let’s do a little recap. Gratitude is a very positive emotion. The law of attraction tells us that when we feel positive we are a match for drawing more positive things into our life.

So let me share a few ideas of how to add more gratitude into your business day.
- Keep a gratitude journal or gratitude list. At the end of each business day, you can sit down and make a few notes about everything you’re grateful for. For example, people who have helped you throughout the day, compliments you’ve received about your business, sales, new leads, completing a project, getting tasks completed, money coming into the business…
- Focus on being grateful for what you already have. Maybe you have a website/blog that you’re not entirely happy with right now. Rather than focusing on it not being right, focus on being grateful for having a website or blog as a starting ground knowing you can change it in the future.
- Use gratitude to increase sales or new clients. If people aren’t getting enough sales or new clients the tendency is to focus on “Not Enough” in terms of the law of attraction, by focusing on a lack of something, you are attracting what you don’t want into your life. Instead, focus on gratitude, for every single client you already have, every person who even shows an interest in the business, every amount of money coming into the business.
Keep that thought in your mind ~ What you focus on expands.
Here are some of my favourite gratitude quotes.
Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation. Brian Tracy
Gratitude is the healthiest of all human emotions. The more you express gratitude for what you have, the more likely you will have even more to express gratitude for. Zig Ziglar
When we focus on our gratitude, the tide of disappointment goes out and the tide of love rushes in. Kristin Armstrong.
Whilst these quotes talk about life, the same rules apply in your business. As business owners, it’s really easy to focus on things like social media, marketing your business, networking, creating contents, sourcing products… dealing with the day to day running of your business.
However, what I’ve learned in my own business and through working with many clients over the years, is that having the right mindset is also important. With the wrong mindset, everything is against you and you’ll find yourself sabotaging yourself and blocking your own success.
Try adding more and more gratitude into your life and your business and just see what happens.
So my question to you today is what are you grateful for in your business today? I’d love you to go ahead and share a few things in the comments below.

Great blog Wendy and so very true. Sometimes things don’t quite work out how you wish but to have gratitude for what you do have will far out weigh what you don’t. ☺️
I’m loving this thought process. I’m a firm believer in staying positive. We tend to focus on what we’re thinking. It’s that while if I’m looking for the bad I’m going to find it, but if I’m looking for the good that too will be found! Wonderful.ideas here Wendy
Thanks so much Robyn. Yes that’s so true. You get what you’re looking for. xx
Exactly, certainly in my life things don’t always go as planned, it’s the way we look at it and focus on that matters.
I really like the quotes, definetly pinnable posts. This is a beautiful article by the way! Well done!
Thank you Paola. That’s much appreciated.
I recently read a book that touched on quite a few of these points. Totally opened my eyes up to a lot. It’s really powerful advice. Gratitude is insanely important!
It certainly is Mariah. I’ve had clients who’ve just done gratitude work and seen massive changes in their life. Thanks for commenting.
I lovelovelove this! You’re absolutely right – gratitude is the KEY. It literally does a 180 on our daily lives and holds so much power, so why *not* incorporate it into our daily business happenings, too?? It’s essential and such an asset! Not to mention it just helps us be better people. 🙂

What a fantastic comment Erica. Yes, it certainly does help us to be better people.
Gratitude is an amazing practice for every area of life and one that is definitely overlooked in business! Thanks so much for sharing and reminding me to be grateful even in the rough times!
Hi Lori, thanks so much for taking the time to comment. Yes, I think we can all use a reminder now and then.
Great post, resonates with me on so many levels!! I have always believed in being grateful for all we have, and on point “attitude of gratitude”.

It’s a lovely way to live Kusum.
Great post! I am a BIG fan of gratitude and have blogged about it myself 🙂 What am I grateful for in my business? I’m grateful for… my business, my clients, the fun I have working on the projects – doing something I love… lately I took part in the #100happydays project (for the second time) and that was GREAT for finding something to be grateful for each day. I recommend it to everyone!
I’m big on gratitude. It’s far too easy to moan about what we don’t have and forget to remember the wonderful things/people we do have around us.
Today I’m grateful for being connected to incredible people in business and to have spent all day yesterday working with Sarah Arrow from Sarke Media working on my business. Exciting times.
What a wonderful comment Amy. We all have so much to be grateful for don’t we?
Oh how fantastic Sarah. What a great way to spend the day.
What a great article! I love the quote “What we focus on expands” and the way you’ve positioned the need for gratitude in your business. Thanks for sharing!
