Today, think of 1 problem or negative situation in your life that you'd like to see resolved. For example; if you have recently been laid off, instead of focusing on all the things that are upsetting about your situation, your going to list all the things your thankful for.

The additional magic comes from your SINCERITY and FEELING you have of gratitude towards each sentence you write.
Your list can be written in the following way:
I am so grateful for......
I am glad....
