Gratitude in Life and Business
I have always thought of myself a grateful person. I’ve been blessed to live a good life. I was raised by two amazing parent. Throughout my life I’ve served my country in military, and served my community through various jobs and giving back.
A few years ago I launched Wowsers Web Design and as I have discovered being in business for yourself, one must be filled with faith, trust, and gratitude. As I learn more about my “spiritual” self, the universe, and grow in my relationship with God – I learned to understand that All Things Are Possible.
And those “possibilities” begin with being grateful. Months ago I started a daily (let’s say hopefully daily) gratitude journal. I end and begin each day with a conversation with God about what I am grateful for in my life. Some days it can be as simple as I am grateful for the amazing weather. My gratitude also translates to business – I am grateful for all the great clients that I have been fortunate enough to provide service to, and help with their websites. Also I am grateful for new clients who seek out my services.
Living in a state of Gratitude or Developing an Attitude of Gratitude is about attracting joy and prosperity through acts of kindness and expressions of gratitude. Every day we need to be reminded to stop, “smell the roses” and be thankful for our blessings—both large and small.
The simple act of saying, “thank you,” either written or spoken can have a dramatic effect on the recipient. By that small gesture you made a difference in that person’s life, and your own. Life is literally and echo – what you send out to the world always returns to you. I have learned I have the power to control what the world sends me, and I have the power to make good things happen.
“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” William Arthur Ward
