The “Midnight Positivity Ritual”: How To Make Gratitude Your Default Setting

What if we could change our default emotional domain to one of happiness and appreciation? What if we could stay in a constant state of gratitude?

In the video above, the legendary teacher of personal mastery techniques at some of America’s major business schools, Srikumar Rao, shares one of Vishen’s favorite rituals that can turn this into your reality too.

We spend way too much of our emotional energy on the two, three, or four things that are wrong in our lives (…) completely ignoring the twenty, thirty, fourty, twohundred things which are pretty good in our lives.

– Srikumar Rao

Is it possible to change your default emotional state? It certainly is.

When you follow that ritual, it is possible to (1) go to sleep in a state of gratitude, (2) wake up in it, and (3) stay in that state throughout your entire day.

We tend to think about the minor frustrations of our day before we go to bed, says Srikumar Rao, but what if we flipped that around?

Watch the video to discover the 3 step ritual and learn how to focus your emotional energy on the many things that are very, very good in your life.
