It's too easy to start your day with negative thoughts and dreading what the day will bring.
- A Performance Review with your Manager
- A meeting with a difficult buyer or seller
- An intense negotiation
- A meeting with your child's teacher
- A phone call delivering unpleasant news
- An enormous "To Do" list
The very thought of any one of these items is enough to make you want to stay in bed. But what if you made the decision to approach your day from a place of gratefulness? For some this would be difficult, but let's see what that would look like.
A Great Starting Point
This one may sound extremely basic, but it's the foundation of being grateful. You woke up. It's just that simple. The mere fact that you woke up should make you happy. It doesn't matter if you are in good health or poor health, the fact that you woke up means that you get another opportunity to live a full life. Another opportunity to help someone. Another opportunity to make a difference. Another opportunity to be the best person you can be. This is a great place to start being grateful because not everyone woke up this morning.
Your Mind is Right
You may have some friends and family who might argue with you on this one, but for the most part your mind is sound. Be grateful that you can think about the options you have today. You can think about and decide for yourself how you will respond to the opportunities and challenges that come your way throughout the day.
Know You Have Choices
There are some days when you feel as though you don't have any choice and the world is conspiring against you. When the truth is simple...you ALWAYS have choices. Be grateful that you live in a society where you have so many choices. It is your choice what kind of day you will have. It is your choice whether the driver who cut you off impacts the rest of your day. It is your choice whether to work with someone you know will be difficult. You have a choice in everything you do, but you must be willing to accept the consequences of those choices.
No matter what you are going through or what you may facing during the course of the day, try to approach it from a place of gratefulness.
- Be grateful that you have a client, let alone a difficult client
- Be grateful that you have an occupation that you love (most days)
- Be grateful that you are healthy
- Be grateful that you have food in your home
- Be grateful that you are loved
- Be grateful that you can work or not
- Be grateful that you woke up to see another day
Being grateful for what you have can change your life and can definitely have an impact on your business. You attract what you are. If you constantly find yourself working with difficult people or having difficult transactions, try a new approach. Wake up with an attitude of gratefulness and see if that doesn't change things.
