The Gratitude Attitude

Gratitude is one of the most powerful forces in the universe. Here are some things you can do to make the Gratitude Attitude a firm fixture in your life.

Create a Thank Bank. A Thank Bank is simply a place where you can jot down all the things that you are grateful for in your life. Put your list somewhere safe and pull it out when you’re feeling down – your mood can change instantly.

Show Gratitude Quietly. Don’t turn gratitude into a promotional or motivational tool. Express your thanks in quiet ways: a thought, a prayer, a one-on-one word, a note of appreciation. Give people gifts of thanks that aren’t bought at shops: a bit of your time, a sacrifice, something valuable to you.

Always Replace the 3 C’s With the 3 A’s. If you work or manage others, and sometimes feel the need to use one of the 3 C’s – complaining, condemning, and criticizing – replace them with the 3 A’s of Accepting, Acknowledging, and Appreciating. Accept people for who they are; acknowledge them for what they do; and appreciate them for just being around.
