Keeping a Gratitude Diary invokes the Law of Correspondence. This powerful mental law says, "as within, so without." It says that your outer world is like a mirror that reflects back to you what is going on in your inner world. And the law of correspondence says that everything that happens outside of you corresponds to something that's going on inside of you. When we say that your outer world is a reflection of your inner world, we mean both at a conscious and at a subconscious level. If you consciously believe that you have the ability to achieve your goals and you can hold a picture of those goals clearly in your mind long enough and hard enough, eventually your outer world will correspond with it. You will see this law of correspondence in action when your outer world of people starts to correspond exactly with your own attitude. You will always see your attitude reflected back to you in the faces and the behaviors of the people around you. If you have a positive, optimistic attitude, people will respond to you almost immediately, even before you open your mouth, in a positive and cheerful way. If your attitude is one of gratitude towards everything around you, then this will also be reflected back to you.
