We all know how important attitude is in our lives. Our ability to maintain a balanced perspective often makes the difference between reacting and responding to specific situations.
While perspective is important, as is remaining positive, there is still one other dimension of attitude that often goes unchecked – gratitude. This is something that can literally change how effective and impactful you become, especially in your work and day-to-day routine.
Gratitude is a deep-seeded belief. It’s an ongoing acknowledgement of thankfulness not entitlement. It’s an attitude that says I get to do this vs I have to do this.
As Thornton Wilder put it, “We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.”
Studies on gratitude repeatedly show that it helps people perform exponentially better than those people that remain more neutral in their views.
