In this world of downturns and difficulty it is easy to give in to the negative vibe around us…I think that is even more reason we should hold on to gratefulness.
Gratitude will not only make you healthy and happy, it will also change your perspective in life. Happy people basically focus on others; unhappy people focus on themselves and wallow in self-pity and doubt. Grateful people are far more optimistic and see whatever circumstances they’re in as an opportunity for good.
Gratitude sweetens our disposition, brightens our day, and encourages those around us. Gratitude will help make us healthy, is the antidote for every negative emotion in our lives, and that virtually every negative thought – anger, worry, fear, hostility or doubt – has at its root ingratitude.
This holds true not just in business but in life…my grandpa always said you do not have to be Happy to be Grateful. Think about how you feel attracted to a positive person with passion- it draws friends and customers alike.
Sure, this does not come easy for everyone, or in every situation. Here is a video by Zig Ziglar that speaks to me…make that list, I did and I can tell you, you will NEVER regret it!
People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.
