Daily ReadGratitude is Powerful

There isn’t a magic potion that can make you happier, healthier, more optimistic and more productive, but each of us possesses something that can make us all of these things with very little effort.  Gratitude.  Studies show us that a positive, grateful attitude is good for our health, but gratitude also adds to the bottom line in very real ways.

Gratitude attracts what we want – when you are consciously aware of what you are grateful for, you are focusing more clearly on what you want in your life and you will naturally attract more of it.

Gratitude improves relationships – good manners is a good habit, but truly letter people know you are grateful for their contributions, talents and actions lets them know how you feel.  Simple hand written thank you notes or phone calls for the sole purpose of saying thank you are great ways to show customers you appreciate them.

Gratitude reduces negativity – need I say more?

Gratitude improves problem solving – by entering problem situation with a perspective of improvement and opportunity rather than challenge or issue.

Gratitude helps us learn – behind every problem is an opportunity if you are grateful for the situation. Even in difficult situations, you can be grateful for the opportunity to learn from it.

Gratitude is an attitude. Gratitude is a choice. And gratitude is a habit. When we consciously practice being grateful for the people, situations and resources around us we begin to attract better relationships and results.

  1. Noteworthy subject. Now more than ever, especially considering the growth of social media as an asset to a well-run business, it can be difficult to be convincingly gracious. However, as you have stated, gratitude is good for the soul. It can significantly improve relationships and form positive perceptions about you (or your business) and is a direct correlation to how you interpret people. Gratitude, at the very least, can be infectious. The simplicity and thoughtfulness that goes along with acknowledging a good deed or commending solid work can become widespread if done properly.
