Growing Gratitude

 

Do you find yourself complaining? Negative? Feeling depressed or anxious? Emotionally drained? Experiencing strain in your relationships?

sad-angryGood News! There is one shift you can make that will help not only increase your positive emotions and change your mindset; but is proven to improve your health and your relationships – GRATITUDE!

 

Really? That’s it? Be grateful? Didn’t my mother tell me to do that?

So why don’t we do it?

For many of us, we get into a place of entitlement and taking things for granted. For example, when you pay $5 for a cup of coffee, you expect to receive your coffee a certain way, within a certain amount of time and with a certain attitude from the barista. If comes out the way you like it, you may utter a quick “thanks” – and if it doesn’t, you get upset because you are paying good money for your coffee and you have places to go and things to do, and this is now hindering your plans.

Did you know this entitlement attitude is killing your joy?

Are you ready to increase your joy, happiness and impact those around
you in a positive way?

What does a Gratitude Perspective Shift  look like?

gratitude-coffeeIn reality, a $5 cup of coffee is a luxury item.  There are people who don’t have clean water to drink or food to eat. Now this isn’t meant to make you feel guilty or that you shouldn’t enjoy your extra-large-half-caf-skinny-dry-mocha-cappuccino – or whatever your drink of choice might be. What living a life of gratitude does require is instead of demanding things to be a certain way when order your designer coffee, take a moment to be grateful that you have the ability to purchase a $5 cup of coffee and recognize the people that create for you – even if it is their job. The barista who is there creating this drink for you – you don’t know what is going on in his or her own life. They may be going through a divorce or watching a parent die, or maybe they are doing whatever it takes to put themselves through school and make ends meet, therefore running on just a few hours of sleep or maybe, their life is going exactly as they want it to. Whatever the scenario, they are human, and as all humans, we desire to be noticed and acknowledged. Not with just a “Thanks” looking over our shoulder as we walk away, but a genuine appreciation for what they are doing.  It may be learning their name and remembering it and using it day after day.

The way you get better with anything is to practice it every day. Surrounding yourself with like-minded people and being accountable for your commitment to implement change in your life.

Testimonials

I had a dispute with my bank. Due to a miscommunication, I had received multiple service charges. I was speaking to the first line customer service rep and he kept telling me there was nothing he could do. In a friendly voice, I told him I believed him and was grateful for the information he gave me; and then asked if he had a supervisor I could speak with. When I was connected with his supervisor, the first thing I did was mentioned that the service rep I was speaking with was friendly and polite, but I wanted to see if anything else could be done. By addressing the situation with a positive attitude and gratitude in my mind, I got the fees reversed AND an additional $62 credited to my account for my trouble!
