I believe there is a cycle to gratitude—the more gratitude you express, the more you find you have to be grateful for. There are also significant, scientifically demonstrated benefits to living in gratitude.
Scientifically Proven Benefits of Gratitude
According to an article written for Forbes Magazine by Amy Morin:
- Gratitude opens the door to more relationships.
- Gratitude improves physical health.
- Gratitude improves psychological health.
- Gratitude enhances empathy and reduces aggression.
- Grateful people sleep better.
- Gratitude improves self-esteem.
- Gratitude increases mental strength.1
I also know, from personal experience, how healing it can be to hear words of gratitude, and how receiving gratitude can give you the mental/emotional fortitude to continue with difficult tasks.
As you probably know, I have been working with Progressive Awareness for well over 25 years now. I love what we do and absolutely believe in the InnerTalk technology, but as with most small business owners (or wives of the business owner) there are times I can work very long hours. The fact is, there was a time I would get up regularly at 3am in the morning just so I could get some work done before the kids awoke, and there have even been times that I have worked right through the night. I have dealt with stupid tax issues, employee problems, equipment failures and too many ridiculous deadlines to count! What always keeps me going, no matter what challenges I may find, is hearing from customers who are anxious to express their gratitude to InnerTalk.
Sometimes the customer is happy for the overall improvement in their lives:
“Your recordings are like gold to me! I was overweight, a junk food eater, never exercised, a complete mess. I’ve listened to my recordings (approximately 4 years now), and they have helped me more than anything. I listen all night on an auto-repeat player. Thanks so much.”
“I think I’ve listened to about every recording you’ve got, I started my own business with just $100 and now I’m making an absolute fortune in my eyes, and have five employees. Using the recordings helps in everything you do. It allows you to be a peak performer. I credit my success to using these recordings.”
“Your programs have helped me get from an uncertain future and feeling unhappy in New York to near paradise, a great relationship and my own business in natural cosmetics. I listen four or five hours a day. My favorites are Unlimited Personal Power, Have It All and OZO Success. The change was gradual, but little by little, I really changed.”
“To say that I am impressed is an understatement! I have been a customer of Progressive Awareness for many years. I can’t thank you enough! Your recordings have changed my life! When I started using your recordings I was locked in a very abusive marriage. Since listening to your recordings I have divorced my abusive husband and I have lost over 100 pounds! My self-esteem has risen dramatically! Dr. Taylor—I am not a dreamer—I am a doer!!”
Sometimes, there can be a specific issue that they have been unhappy about for a long time, that they finally resolved using InnerTalk:
“Went to a weight loss clinic and diet centers, lost no weight. While listening to the recordings I went from 165 lbs to 140 lbs, that’s a total of 25 lbs.”
“I’m forgetting to smoke. I smoke about 3 packs of cigarettes a day and after 2 weeks, I’m down to 1 pack a day.”
“It started working for me in 48 hours. I was more satisfied with 1/3 the amount of food. No hunger pains and have enjoyed a 5 to 7 lb weight loss per week. It’s the only thing I have tried that works, and I have tried them all.”
“I have used the recording for 8 weeks. During this period of time I have been able to lower my blood pressure to 145/78 while still taking my medication. Before listening to the recording I couldn’t control my blood pressure with the medication!”
“My 8 year old son seemed to be having a rough period at school. Within a few weeks his “Friday Folder” reports from school were showing positive feedback. On his report card he went up in 14 areas!! I’m very proud of my son but better yet he is proud of himself. Thanks for the boost.”
“I bought the recording in the middle of midterms, I listened for approximately four hours before studyingand 15 hours while I was studying. The results were impressive. I feel that I was able to accomplish more in a shorter amount of time than I had ever experienced before. My retention was better, my mind was clear and organized. I felt prepared for my midterms. Consequently I was confident and did very well on my tests.”
“I purchased the recording Neat and Tidy, it worked. I listened to it twice and cleaned my house made my bed, took out the garbage and decided to stop the recording before I became exhausted!”
And sometimes, the customers attribute near miracles to the InnerTalk process:
“My husband was diagnosed with brain cancer and given only 9 months to live. He used your health recordings day and night and is now cancer-free. His doctor says it’s a miracle.”
“I’ve been using daily (1-3 hours) your recording on Prosperity and Abundance and very quickly walked into a lucrative career, after having been dirt-poor for years.”
“I have had amazing success with the Prosperity CD. On the days that I listen to it on my way to work, my stock portfolios go up in value. Sounds crazy, I know, but this happens predictably and consistently At first, I dismissed this as dumb luck, but after months and months this phenomenon continues like clockwork virtually every time I listen to it.”
Many Aspects of Gratitude
I cannot begin to tell you how grateful I am for all the gratitude customers have expressed. It is a thrilling feeling to know that I am part of an organization that is improving the lives of people around the world. I am also grateful for many other areas of my life—my family, health, prosperity, animals, beautiful flowers, the sound of birds singing, clear blue skies and so much more. Gratitude really does make the world a better place.
Express your gratitude and watch the universe return the gift many fold!
Wishing you Love, Light, and Laughter, always!
