Climb down the Gratitude Ladder

The Gratitude Ladder is what I call one gratitude leading to another gratitude.  In some cases, you may be surprised where your gratitude ladder takes you!

I use this technique when I’m having a bad day and can only think of a few things to be thankful for.  When you start to breakdown how those few things came into your life, you end up having 1000’s of things to be grateful for!

Here are a few examples

Simple Ladder:

Be grateful you read a good book.

Be Grateful you can read:

Be Grateful for the person who taught you to read

Be Grateful you know the alphabet

Be Grateful for the person who taught you the ABC’s

Infinity Ladder:

Be grateful you read a good book.

Be Grateful for the Person who wrote the book

Be Grateful for the publisher who published the book

Be Grateful for the letter carrier who brought the manuscript to the publisher

Be Grateful for the paper the manuscript was typed on.

Be Grateful for the tree that became that paper.

Be Grateful for the Bookstore who sold the book.

Be Grateful for the money you have to buy the book

Be Grateful for the job you have, and the paycheck you receive

Be Grateful for the products/services you sell

Be Grateful for the customers who support your employer.

Be Grateful for the jobs your customers have.

Be grateful for the car you have to drive to the bookstore

Be grateful for the gas you have in the car

Be grateful for the people who made it possible for you to have access to gasoline

Be grateful for the fossils that became fuel

Be grateful for the living beings that became fossils.

Don’t just climb down your ladder to see how long you can make it, stop on each rung and truly be grateful and see how meaningful you can make your ladder.

Happy climbing!

Peace, Love, Joy and Harmony!
