Don’t you feel good when people acknowledge you? In fact, studies show that acknowledging people is more important than paying people. Nine out of ten people never say thank you. Well, that is not exactly accurate, but it sure feels true some days. The good news is that you don’t have to wait for others, you can ride the gratitude train yourself by creating a gratitude list.
Jot down a list of things you are grateful for, it will change your perspective on the day (or at least the moment) and it can jumpstart a new attitude that will help you focus on the positive aspects of your life.
Start each day with a gratitude list. Wait, let’s do it right now. Get out a piece of paper or open another window and create your list.
Really, I’m not joking, let’s do it.
Ok, I’ll go first.
I am grateful for . . .
- The ocean.
- My partner.
- My friends.
- My new record player.
- My surfboards.
- The delicious breakfast I made today.
- My ideas book (and the ideas).
- The Book I am reading called Mastery by Robert Green.
- My bed.
- The heat in this room.
There, that was easy, and damn it feels good.
