How an Attitude of Gratitude Helps Your Business Succeed

Feeling gratitude has been shown to have significant positive effects on an individual's health and happiness.  When we're grateful for all things big and small, it shows in our relationships with ourselves and others.  Having an attitude of gratitude helps our business relationships, too.

 

Increased Happiness and Satisfaction - When we incorporate gratitude into our daily lives, we have a more positive outlook on everything we do.  We are more appreciative of everyday things including our profession.  Aspects of business are often disappointing. Gratitude lets us see the brighter side of those disappoints; learning lessons and ways to improve our business.

Increased Self-Esteem and Optimism - A high level of self-esteem builds confidence in our ability to succeed.  In turn, we experience more optimism. We all know that optimistic someone (maybe that's you) who always bring light with them into a room.  Their confidence is contagious. Surrounding ourselves with confident, optimistic, and successful people automatically makes us strive to do better.

Increased Levels of Success - Those with a grateful attitude are more likely to achieve their goals faster. Those who hold managerial positions report that showing genuine appreciation and thanking their colleagues and clients improves productivity and motivation.  Grateful people are more likely to be willing to help others succeed.  Their generosity extends beyond materialistic things and what's in it for them.

 

Being grateful for the opportunities we have to build a successful business, provide support to our family and co-workers, and help those less fortunate than ourselves translates into everything we do.  It enriches and transforms our lives as well as those we work with.

Start a journal and write down at least three things every day that you're grateful for.  It might be hard in the beginning or on especially difficult days,  but persistently doing this on a daily basis will transform your life and your business.

Taking an extra moment daily to think about what I am grateful for, sure helps me. Not only at work, but at home, and  I find myself smiling more..

The Law of Attraction teaches us that the more we are grateful for, the more we will have to be grateful for.

Even on a tough day, it's easy to find a reason. For instance, I've gotten in the habit of going back to the beginning and saying thank you for all of the people who contributed to things I appreciate, such as a hot shower.

If you think about it... start with the invention of electricity and power lines. Then think of all the men (like my son) who work to build and maintain those power lines. Then - I thank whoever invented water heaters and water pipes - and shower heads and faucets. Of course I thank my husband for building this house and installing my shower. Lest I forget - I thank Mother Nature for the spring that bubbles out of the hillside and provides us with fresh clean water.

No matter what it is you appreciate in your life, if you stop to think about all the brain and muscle power it took to provide it to you, you won't run out of reasons to be thankful.

I started a journal years ago for something else.  Writing down 3 things each day for what I am grateful is a wonderful idea to add!  Thank you!

I think too many people ignore the power of this. Gratitude shows greatfulness for what you have. By focusing on that rather than what we don't have we welcome more into our lives. 

 

Some call it whoo whoo but success leaves cluses and gratitude, belief in your aim/purpose and discipline are the keys to a happy and succesful life.

 

Great Post! And I think we all need a reminder every now and again.

Don't forget to tell those who you work FOR that you are grateful for the opportunity and any leads they have given you.  Thanking others for your success is an honest gesture.

Being truly grateful for your blessings is projected in your appearance, your voice and your body language.  We all would rather be around someone who is positive and smiling....living in gratitude makes that easy!

As it is said, you can't control what happens to you, but you can influence your attitude about it.     I like how attitude and gratitude rhyme, too!

I am in agreement as well--we are so fortunate to live in the USA and take many things for granted--food, housing, freedom.  Instilling a sense of appreciation and gratitude in  mykids is a priority!
