1 habit every aspiring healed, free, and thriving individual should cultivate
What do healed, whole, and thriving individuals fully functioning in their true identity do every morning… that others don’t?
A weird habit that gets them in a positive mindset and establishes their mode of operation for the day?
Have you noticed this…?
It seems like everyone and their mother’s dog is talking about how “HABITS are the key to your success” these days…
First it was cold showers…
Then it was Bulletproof coffee…
Next it’ll be replacing your shampoo with bacon grease…
Well, there’s good reason that habits have gotten so much attention recently. See…
Habits are the bridge between
what you think and what you do.
And in the age of information…
… when ANYTHING you could EVER want to know is just a “Hey Siri!” away…
… it has never been so needed, that we find constructive things to DO with all our information!
And that’s where habits come in;
They take the information in your head…
… and implant it in your daily doings.
Because we all know that *doing* something trumps *thinking* something every time!
Needless to say, I’m a BIG believer in changing your habits… and speaking of changing your habits… here’s one that has made a huge difference in my life:
Cultivate this quick and simple habit, and you’ll
Start each day in thriving and overcoming mode, with your thoughts and expectations aligned with the posistive flow of life and syncronized with the heart and mind of God.
No, I didn’t pull this from some “top 10 success habits” blog post…
I live this;
And it works.
Right upon waking up in the morning, before you put your feet on the floor or roll out of bed, start thinking of everything, and I mean everything, for which you are thankful. Express your thankfulness and gratitude to God and say thank you for every thing you can think of, no matter how big or small. Be thankful for the new day, that you have a warm bed, that you are alive, or any possible thing that comes to your mind. Turn your thoughts to thankfulness and and be thankful for the blessings and opportunities that are headed your way that day. End this “time of cultivating thanfulness,” by declaring, ” I will rejoice and be glad in this day that God has made.” By implementing this practice, you are actually choosing, with your will, how you will approach and respond to your day.
Everyday has a mixture of difficulties and challenges along with blessings and opportunities. It is up to you to decide on which of these you will focus and turn your attention. The truth is, wherever you place your focus, that is the area you empower.
Cultivating Thankfuness Habbit. It trains your mind to align and agree with the good things and positive posibilities of life. which exist in in the thoughts and intentions of God’s heart.
The plans and intensions that exist in the heart of God are good. Establishing this one small habbit, shifts your mindset to expect these good plans to unfold in your day. As a result, you will begin to notice the goodness and the small blessings throughout your day . Even if things go wrong you will respond positively to stress because you will be more aware of the goodness and the blessings than the stress.
So try it out.
. Are you Depressed?
. Are you prone to getting discouraged and overwhelmed?
. Do you dread the day?
Then this morning habbit is transformational for you!
Yes, it may seem (and feel) counter-intuitive at first.
But after you really master it… I think you’ll find that it’s a great way to align with a positive flow … and establish a positive mindset that is eagerly anticipating goodness, instead of expecting things to go wrong.

Thanks for this Holly! I do some stretching before getting out of bed in the morning. I will add gratitudes to that time. Something for my mind and voice to do while I’m stretching. Also, upon waking during really difficult times in the past, I would say aloud, “This the day the Lord has made for me. I will rejoice and be glad in it.” as sort of choice when I’ve not felt like rejoicing or being glad. But I’ve never considered declaring that during good times. Thank you for the suggestion!
I love it Suzy – combining stretching and thankfulness is perfect! The fact that you were choosing to be glad in the difficult times is remarkable! That is harder but strengthens you in the long run. Cultivating thankfulness in the good times or in between times, creates a habit for your subconscious mind to view all circumstances through a positive lens and walk through each day with a positive expectation.
Thanks for your comment!
