The Attitude of Gratitude

Thanksgiving it the beginning of the Holiday Season, it is the time of year that we look back over the year and appreciate all that we have done and those who have helped us along the way. We are thankful for our family, our friends, and our health.  This is the time of year; we stop and think about what we are thankful for.


When developing your network, it is important that you stop regularly throughout the year and thank the people around you who are helping you achieve success.


There are a great many people whom I am grateful for this year. Some have passed me great referrals, some have been a positive influence, others have been there to help me with whatever I have needed and some have been willing to walk me into opportunities that I never thought possible.  For each of them I am grateful.  I have learned that if I am in a constant attitude of gratitude, I attract more things and people to be grateful for


I have two affirmations that I say repeatedly throughout the day:


1.  Everyday in every way I create abundance and prosperity for myself and others.

2.  I am grateful for the abundance in my life and the opportunities to learn and grow.


Commit to yourself to be grateful all day, everyday not just the Holidays. Gratitude is not something that we do; it is a way of being.


Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. The “attitude of gratitude” is so important! How often do you thank the great people around you throughout the year? Writing a hand written note (or using Send Out Cards), sending a quick email, phoning them just to say hi (or thank you), taking them to lunch,buying them a box of candy- people love stuff like that.
    You also need to be thankful for your problems! That’s right-for if they were less difficult, someone with less ability would have your job!
    Words to live by:
    Disregard your complaints,
    Discover your gratitude,
    Release your trouble,
    Restate your blessings,
    and, most of all, “Be grateful for the doors of opportunity-and for friends who oil the hinges!”
