TIPS FOR YOUR GAME PLAN
An Attitude of Gratitude Creates A Business That Flourishes
By: Courtney Poullas, SHG Team Blogger
Gratitude. What does it mean? Simply put, it’s the simple act of continually being thankful and showing kindness to others. An old adage reads, “If you concentrate on being thankful for what you have, you’ll always have more…” And that is true not only for your personal life, but your professional life, too! One of our November Sparkle Hustle Grow box themes is gratitude, and we are so excited to help our tribe focus on being thankful during the month of thankfulness.
Why is it worth it to work on practicing gratitude?
Believe it or not, gratitude goes far beyond being thankful in a fleeting moment or thought. According to Happify, those who practice gratitude consistently will experience feelings of abundance in their lives and a deeper appreciation for the “small things.”
In the business world, it’s so easy for all of us to get caught up in the big goals: landing a new contract or client, making that big sale, hiring a new assistant, and more. We may get so caught up in the big picture that we forget about the joy in the small things: the business partner or co-worker who left a fresh coffee on our desk that morning, the assistant who organized our binder clips by color because she knows our loyalty to organization…
Learning to practice gratitude and make it part of your business model and plan has endless benefits. As they say, your cup will (continually) overflow. Plus, your team will likely feel more appreciated, and that’s always a positive.
The gratitude vibe attracts the gratitude tribe.
It’s true: you attract what you are! With an attitude of thankfulness, you will attract other like minded women to your friendship circle, products/services, and business opportunities. As leaders, our behavior has the power to influence others. Imagine your influence with an attitude of gratitude.
Our November box will give you tons of ideas for spreading gratitude among your customers, business partners, team members, and co-workers. Whether you send heartfelt notes in the mail or simply send a text showing your appreciation for their hard work, a little bit of gratitude can go quite along way. Of course, you can always treat your tribe to a Sparkle Hustle Grow box using our gift subscription option!
Sleep more and feel more energized all from an attitude change.
Over 40 studies have been done on the benefits of gratitude. Not only does this attitude come with mental and emotional benefits, but studies show that it comes with physical benefits, as well.
When we are thankful for what we have and take the focus off of what we don’t have, we are likely less stressed. Less stress means the potential for more sleep, and more sleep means the potential for more energy! Gratitude brings with it a sense of inner peace, and that leads to feeling calm and relaxed.
What would you spend your time doing if you not only felt more rested, but also more energized?
