Here at Jonathan Wesley (Oakbrook, IL), we are committed to developing well-rounded businessmen and women. A large part of this is teaching the fundamentals on the importance of gratitude.
Many people do not realize the POWER OF GRATITUDE is so impactful that it can change a person’s day or outlook on something. We would like to take the time to identify a few key ways that we can utilize this power in both our personal and professional lives.
Law of Attraction
Imagine if all day at your job people just kept thanking you for your excellent work and congratulating you on all your successes. I bet just thinking about that brought a smile to your face. In order for you to receive gratitude from other people, you must first be able to give and show gratitude. Give gratitude to others and you will receive it. Receive gratitude and you will find yourself giving it.
There is Always Time to Be Grateful
With everything going on in your day, you probably find yourself moving so quickly that you only focus on the negatives and move on just as quick when something good happens. If you ever find yourself going down this path…
STOP what you’re doing.
REFLECT on your day.
EXPRESS GRATITUDE for a positive person, place, or thing for that day.
CONTINUE with your day maintaining that positive energy.
How to Show Gratitude in Your Business
1. End each day writing down 3 things you are grateful for that happened today.
2. When you have a good experience working with an employee, client or customer tell them.
3. If someone holds the elevator open for you or simply helps you prepare for a meeting, don’t forget to say “THANK YOU”
One of the best pieces of advice we have heard at Jonathan Wesley is “gratitude is one of those things you can never use up. The more you practice it, feel it, express it, the more it grows.” We hope you find these tips helpful and start to see the happiness that practicing gratitude can bring you!
