Hey, it’s Marie Forleo and you are watching MarieTV, the place to be to create a business
and life you love. And this is not Q&A Tuesday. It’s a special episode of MarieTV in honor
of the US holiday, Thanksgiving. And today we’re gonna talk about the dark side of
an often cheery topic. Today I wanna talk to you about the downside of gratitude.
Being grateful seems like a harmless turkey day ritual, but really it’s a dangerous
state of mind. Let me explain.
Look, we all have negative thoughts from time to time. “I don’t have enough money. My
house sucks. I’m having a bad hair day.” I don’t have those. Just kidding! Or, you
know, “Why is this person flying in first class and I’m stuck in coach?” Yada, yada,yada.
Complaining can be an easy way to bond with people. Feeling like things are less than
perfect can be an automatic place for your mind to rest, kind of like a big, negative,
fluffy pillow.
Well, watch out, because a little gratitude will yank that fluffy pillow right out from
underneath you.
Gratitude kills. It kills self pity, it kills jealousy, it kills bitterness, and it kills
regret. It’s kinda like Raid. It kills negative thoughts, dead.
And you wanna know how fast acting it is? Check this out. Here is a stat from a study
done by Professor Emmons at UC Davis. People who kept a gratitude journal for just 3 weeks
measured 25% higher on life satisfaction. They exercised more, they drank less alcohol,
and their families and friends noticed that they were nicer to be around. How cool is that?
And the effects lasted several months beyond the initial 3 week study.
So here’s the deal, the only downside to gratitude is that you have to give up some
time sucking, negative habits and emotional patterns that hold you back.
Because it’s talked about so much and we’re supposed to be grateful on Thanksgiving, it’s
really easy to dismiss gratitude as just self helpy or a once a year kinda thing.
But the truth is, gratitude is one of the most fast acting tools for personal transformation.
No matter what negative state you find yourself in, no matter how bad things seem, the simple
act of writing things down that you’re grateful for will instantly change your mood. And if
you do it consistently, it will totally transform your life.
If you’re saying, “Yeah, yeah. I get the whole gratitude thing,” but you don’t
actually do it, you are doing yourself a disservice. Now listen up, because this is a tweetable.
“Gratitude is more powerful than any pill you can pick up at the pharmacy.”
It’s a natural mood enhancer! No dry mouth, no constipation, and no hot dog fingers.
The only effect is the one I warned you about.
Loss of negative thoughts, loss of pity parties, inability to stay stuck in a miserable state,
absence of limiting and soul-sucking beliefs, a lack of ability to blame your parents for
everything that’s wrong with you.
Pretty great, right? So let’s get this gratitude party started right now. In the comments below
I want you to tell me at least 10 things you’re grateful for.
Then I want you to report any instant side effects, and I should not be hearing about
hot dog fingers.
I’m gonna do it too, over where the gratitude party is taking place, at MarieForleo.com,
so go there now and leave a comment.
Now, before I go, do you wanna know one of the things I’m most grateful for?
It’s you. MarieTV is one of the things I love most in my life, and getting to connect with you
each and every week is awesome. I so appreciate your emails and your comments and everything

that only you have. Thank you so much for watching this special episode of MarieTV.
I’m sending you and your family all of my love.
Catch you next time.
