Harness the Power of Gratitude


Expressing appreciation for the good things in your life, however trivial they may seem, may be just the medicine to get us through our current national funk. Gratitude has the power to improve our mental and physical well-being. It can strengthen our relationships. Help us problem-solve more effectively. Not to mention build trust and promote excellence.  “Thankfulness is a key to business health,” writes Tim Askew in his Inc. article on Thanksgiving and the power of gratitude in business.

In fact, showing gratitude year-round has significant benefits for any business, Kristin Marquet writes in Medium. Here, Marquet shares the stories of 20 entrepreneurs who demonstrate gratitude year-round and share how it’s changing their lives and businesses for the better.

Harness the Power of Gratitude

To begin, think about ways to celebrate life and feel gratitude for things big and small. If you have decided to apply to business school, take a moment to celebrate the big decision to invest in yourself, to take a step to learn, grow, and advance.

Then, remember to celebrate when you wrap up the applications and submit them. If you leave a doctor’s appointment with a clean bill of health, don’t take it for granted; celebrate it. Celebrating these things seems to slow down time. It also increases our gratitude and our ability to live in and experience the now.

We encourage you to find more reasons to celebrate and feel grateful for the blessings in your life. Wake up each day and celebrate life, friends, overcoming challenges, doing something hard, successes and failures alike.

If life is giving you a hard time lately, try looking at things from a different angle. Perspective is everything.  Shift your perspective, and it just might help you get where you want to go and feel gratitude for having a chance to experience the journey.
