Pathway to Gratitude: How to Create Thankful Habits (SlideShare)

Pathway to Gratitude: How to Create Thankful Habits | Soultiply with Brittany Ritcher The south side of 37th Street, between 5th and 6th Ave is my favorite street in all of New York City.

If you live in NYC, or you’ve visited – there is a very good chance you’ve never been on this street.

It’s dirty and filled with Midtown hotels and cheap wholesale clothing stores that sell nothing but fur or beads.

But a walk along this street has the magic to transform my day.

Without having to think about it, I’ve created a gratitude habit SO STRONG that it jars me out of worrisome thoughts without the use of my conscious attention. This habit has put my ego in its place. And it’s a habit that we all have inside of us.

And in this kick-butt SlideShare, I’m going to show you exactly how you can harness the power of your own daily routine to create a habit for unprecedented abundance in your life.

Buckle up and join me on the Pathway to Gratitude!

BREAKING NEWS: The Surprising Way You Can Change the World with One Simple Action (Infographic)

Breaking News: The Surprising Way You Can Change the World with One Simple Action (Infographic) | Soultiply with Brittany Ritcher I’ve never traveled the world. In fact, I’ve never even ventured outside the United States. I know, it’s a little embarrassing to say out loud.

But thank God for the internet and all the technology that allows us to connect worldwide each and every day.

And it just makes me think…THERE IS SO MUCH OUT THERE IN THIS WORLD.

Millions of people are living out their moments in time every day. By that fact alone, we are all so incredibly connected.

What series of events had to happen for you to find yourself reading this post, on this website? Every choice you made today has led to this very moment. Take a deep breathe and soak it in. This is your incredible life to live.

Now that’s what I call a WHOA moment.

And boy oh boy, do I live for those moments!

Whoa moments can be best described as those periods in time where your mind can briefly comprehend our place in the grand universe. Those moments of awe while overlooking the Grand Canyon. I’ll never forget the time when I was reading and for a brief smidgen of a moment, I was able to wrap my mind around the fact that time is relative and all that exists is the present moment. No, I wasn’t high on drugs. I was running on a treadmill, to be exact. But I’ll never forget that WHOA moment for as long as I live.

Wait But Why just published a brilliant article about “whoa moments” and how they connect us to our highest selves. I strive to be in a state of awe, each and every day. It’s all just too beautiful to fully comprehend.

But WHOA moments are only little blips in time. And once they pass, the reality of our world becomes glaringly apparent.

For example, I’m not a fan of the nightly news. In fact, it’s probably the most depressing thing you could watch on television. I make an effort to stay informed on current events, but I don’t let them consume me. I choose to send a prayer out to those in need, and focus on deflecting that negative energy instead.

I know why news outlets exist. They aim to inform, but ratings always seem to win in the end. An anchor makes a hurtful sexist or racist remark, and the video goes viral. Their audience craves staggering numbers and incredible circumstances.

But what if we all chose to focus on this instead?…

Don’t Erase Yourself: 2 Oaths for Looking at Selfies

Don't Erase Yourself 2 Oaths for Looking at Selfies | Soultiply with Brittany Ritcher You know what app I’ve been crushing on lately? Timehop . Have you tried it?

If you love walking down memory lane, this app is pure gold. It goes through your most popular social media accounts and let’s you see what you posted 1 year ago, 2 years ago, and so on… (I have some posts that go back 7 years or more! Depends on how long you’ve been hooked to those precious social media accounts). It’s a beautiful little reminder of our life events and what we’ve chosen to share with our friends and followers.

But there are days when a reminder from the past can sting. When the present feels all too real.

And if you are currently embarking on a weight loss or body transformation journey, there’s nothing like looking at old pictures to stir up some unwanted emotions.

But it’s not worth our time and energy to get sucked into the past, to battle the comparisons of ourselves, or to even fathom the thought that these pictures are any sort of indicator of our worth.

So instead, I’ve developed two promises to myself, two main feelings that I refuse to feel when looking at pictures, and I hope by the end of this post, you’ll pledge the same.

How to Stand Strong Behind your Work & Art, Even when it’s Scary

Create How To Stand Strong Behind your Work & Art Even when it's scary | Soultiply with Brittany Ritcher Well, I didn’t get a lot of sleep last night…soooo…

Well, I didn’t have very much time to prepare…soooo…

Well, I wasn’t really invested in this idea anyway …sooo…

Sound familiar?

We dish these lines out like they are candy on Halloween.

The moment we come in contact with anything that we truly want, anything that makes us start shakin’ in our boots, anything that makes our hearts start to pound with excitement – we freak. We start to formulate the excuses that will buffer ourselves against the possibility of failure.

We can be afraid to put our name on our own work, afraid to say “This is my love, my life, my passion. THIS IS THE BEST I CAN DO AND I AM PROUD OF IT.”

Has this ever happened to you? Lord knows it used to happen to me.

The Gift of Give

The Gift of Give 3

Are you “Giving Constipated?” Here’s some “Giving Activia”…

Blog Seperator

Giving is powerful stuff. So much so, that I challenge you to try to name an influential moment in your life that isn’t associated with the concept of giving in some way, shape or form. Come up empty? I sure do – giving goes right to the core. Giving is relatively simple, yet leaves such a lasting impact. When my sister was little, she used to tear her food into smaller pieces so she would have “more” and then she would give half to me. She loved to share everything –Barbies, candy, stickers – you name it. It was just so simple to her. It amazes me how children can wholeheartedly embrace the simple logic of giving, yet it takes years of strength and energy to remind ourselves of this lesson as we get older.

Are you sitting back right now and thinking, “Brittanyyyyy…I know I SHOULD be in a giving mindset, but how? What’s the point?” Hey, I don’t blame you. Sometimes it’s just plain hard to give to others. Or maybe you’ve been out of the habit of giving for so long, that you’ve forgotten how to give and how simple it can actually be. Here are some surefire ways to get your giving gears in motion.
