With Thanksgiving just a few days away and the idea of "giving thanks" in the air, would you say you live with an attitude of gratitude? If you do, then you're on the right track, say three spiritual leaders from Generation Y. As Mastin Kipp -- founder of -- puts it, "[Gratitude] is one of the most powerful tools that there is out there."

Bestselling author and online entrepreneur Marie Forleo adds, "Gratitude is a life saver." She says that whenever she's frustrated or annoyed, she stops to ask herself what she's grateful for at that very moment -- and it instantly changes everything. "It's a trick that everyone should know about," she says. founder Gabrielle Bernstein says, "Gratitude unlocks all that's blocking us from really feeling truthful, really feeling authentic and vulnerable and happy."
