“It’s not happiness that makes us grateful; it’s gratefulness that makes us happy.” —David Steindl-Rast
The holidays are approaching fast, and with it being Thanksgiving we thought gratitude was the perfect topic for this week’s post.
Gratitude comes up a lot when we talk about success in our work and in our lives. But it’s only through developing a consciousness of gratitude that we can maximize the gifts it brings.
So what is having a gratitude consciousness all about?
For me, it’s seeing all the blessings in my life through the prism of being grateful. It’s the awareness that even in the darkest times, there are things and people to be grateful for. And it’s about acknowledging my inner strength and ability to persevere. If I stop to look within, gratitude surfaces.
Today we’ll explore some of the gifts of having a gratitude consciousness, and how it can positively impact your business and your life.
