Greetings!

 

  

"Gratitude makes sense of our past, 

brings peace for today and 

creates a vision for tomorrow." 

~Melody Beattie~

 

What we focus on expands and what we appreciate appreciates. Unfortunately, we tend to focus on what we don't have and what's going wrong. When we choose to be grateful for what we do have and what's going right, we are more positive and confident and that helps us attract more good things to us.

 

Here are three proven practices for cultivating an attitude of gratitude:

 

1) Write in a Gratitude Journal. Keep a notebook by yourgrateful bed. A few nights a week, make a brief list of what you are grateful for that day. Include at least one unique entry. Soon you'll be thinking during the day, "What am I going to write in my gratitude journal?" For example, when was the last time you expressed gratitude for hot and cold running water, a healthy body or a colorful sunset? You'll stop taking "little" things for granted, put challenges into perspective and sleep much better.

 

2) Accelerate Your Eventual Success. After a disappointment or perceived failure, like not getting that job offer or new client, do you tend to feel despondent and insecure? Instead, choose to be grateful for lessons learned and what's to come in anticipation of your success. 

 

3) Transform Challenging Relationships. Think about someone you see on a regular basis who you don't get along with. It might be a boss, coworker or family member. For one week, commit to refrain from being critical of that person in what you say and what you think. Instead, each day write down one thing about them for which you are grateful. For example, you might start the week by writing that this person teaches you to be more patient. By the end of that week, because you chose to focus on the good, that relationship will improve. (For very challenging relationships, it might take two weeks!)

Have You Heard What They're Saying? 
 
Turner"We've all been inspired by motivational speakers in the past. However, within a day or so, that inspiration fades and we go back to business as usual. Tricia Molloy's 'CRAVE Your Goals!' program was different. Tricia is a warm, friendly and engaging speaker who showed us practical steps to get from where we are to where we want to be. As administrative assistants, we tend to put everyone else's needs first. Now, we're clearing clutter and creating vision boards and affirmations as we pursue our certifications and health goals. Best of all, we're having fun as we support each other's successes."
