Be A Money Magnet: How To Make An Epic Gratitude List

I love this time of year, especially being in the coaching and personal development world.

Over the next two days and beyond, we’ll receive a veritable smorgasbord (ha! I kill me!) of posts on gratitude, love, appreciation and giving thanks.

I say, bring it on!

It’s time to double down on the gratitude – especially this year.

And it’s the perfect time of the year to start, or renew, a gratitude practice.

Now, I’d bet a milkshake that you already have a bunch of gratitude tools in your toolkit.  (Indeed, I realized today that this is our second article on gratitude in less than two months.)

I’d like to add to that by giving you one of my all-time favorites.  (And it’s something I’ve never shared before.)

I call it – The Epic Gratitude List.

Its origins are in a practice an old friend taught me many years ago, called The List of 100.  (You can steal this too.)

The List of 100 is a list of one hundred things you’d like to be / do / have / experience in the coming year.

Some are big.  Some are small.  Some are really 3-year and 10-year goals.  The point is not to do all of them (though you will many of them, especially if you print your list off and tape it to the wall, like I do), but to list them all and put down what you really want.

So we’ll get back to that a little later (though if you want to start your List of 100, by all means go for it)… for now, you can see where this is going.

The Epic Gratitude List is a list of 100 people, situations, experiences and things you’re grateful for right now.

Some are big.  Some are small.  It really doesn’t matter.

What DOES matter is that you get them down, because the goal of this is to create a tangible, physical representation of the abundance you already have.

So what makes The Epic Gratitude List really special?

The length, for one. Sure you may be checking in with gratitude every day… or making a list of 5 or 10 things…

… but how often do you make a list of ONE HUNDRED THINGS you’re grateful for?

Answer: probably not very often.

The point here is to dig deep – go past the usual stuff you give thanks for every day, and really notice the good things all around you. And how many good things you have.

Another point of The Epic Gratitude List is evidence.

Have you ever noticed that when you’re feeling like sh*t, it’s really hard to make the gratitude list?

I mean, here it is supposed to be this high-vibe tool and all… and it is. But when you’re in the thick of it, you may have noticed that gratitude can be really hard to access.

That’s when you pull out The Epic Gratitude List and look at the facts.

The “squishymind” – as my husband puts it – has a really hard time arguing with the facts on the ground. Which means it’s really, really handy to have the right kinds of lists (those with evidence of awesomeness) at your disposal.

So over the next couple of days, when we’re all swimming in the sea of gratitude… I invite you to make an Epic Gratitude List. Not just for now, but for the days where you’re not. (Not swimming in the sea of gratitude, that is.)

And if you really want to go the distance – I invite you to blow past 100 and go all the way to 1000!

One more thing about this practice – and it’s really the only “rule,” per se…

Make your Epic Gratitude List fast.

This is not the time for overthinking. This is the time for gratitude momentum. Plus, it’s always fascinating to see the order in which it comes out. And what we forget. (No judgment, just fascinating and you can always add more later.)

To inspire you, I’ve included my own Epic Gratitude List for this year. I made it in about 40 minutes.

To your health, wealth, joy and LOVE this Thanksgiving. I am grateful for you!
