I recently encouraged a group of business leaders to take a few moments each day to journal things they are grateful for. At the time, it had not crossed my mind to journal my gratitude on twitter but just this week a significant influence in my life encouraged me to tweet the things I’m grateful for and it’s been a great tool for me.
“Thank you, Don Dalmyrple! I’m grateful for the ways you speak positively into my life. You’re making a difference and for that, I’m #grateful”
“Thank you, Mary Zirkle, for caring enough to give the best of yourself to me. Your investment of time is much appreciated and your words of wisdom are making a difference. Thank you!”
“Thank you, Wealth Builders Connect, in just one hour last meeting you shared 33 referrals, you engaged in a dynamic discussion about preparing for networking events, and you expressed your appreciation for the members of our group who have connected you with people, ideas and resources that are helping to build your wealth. Way To Go! I’m glad to be part of such a dynamic team with you, you are making a difference!”
So why start a gratitude journal?
- Gratitude has influenced my attitude and positively shaped my thinking
- Gratitude has made me keenly aware of simple things in life that I otherwise may have missed
- Gratitude has given me peace of mind knowing that life is actually very good to me and in the midst of challenges, life is getting better!
