“Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.”
What this quote means for business:
If everyone we met in our lives and businesses was easy as pie to get along with, there would be no growth. Be grateful that there are people in your life and business that challenge you, encourage you to grow … even if they don’t know that’s what they are doing.
Gratitude is a very powerful and transformational habit to nurture. When you are grateful for what you have, you tend to get more things to be grateful for. It can have a snowball effect, creating more things to be grateful for that you don’t have now.
Every day, I write down five things that I am grateful for. Sometimes this is an easy list to write. Sometimes, not. But I do it anyway … even if I just have to be grateful for something small like air to breathe or food in the kitchen.
When your business or life is not going according to the plans you so carefully (or not so carefully) crafted, it is often easy to pout and fill your mind with un-gratefulness. This is a sure way to bring about more unpleasantness. That’s just the way the Universe and the Law of Attraction works.
What you focus on expands. What you focus on is what you get. Therefore, when you focus on all the things you are grateful for … practice gratitude as often as you can … good things are magnetized to your presence. The reverse it true, too.
I challenge you to start looking for things in your life and business to be grateful for. Create a Gratitude Journal and write about all the things you are thankful for each and every day. You might be surprised by how much your life shines even now.
