You’re increasing your sales. Your team is more productive. You get out of the office earlier to do what you love with those you love…

…and yet there’s something missing. You struggle to keep all the business plates spinning simultaneously. It’s exhausting to be you some days. Your family and friends ask, “Are you okay?”

The missing something is Gratitude.

Here are 3 Ways to Positively Grow Your Business with Gratitude:

Gratitude Focuses on the Positive
You see what you look for.

Is your default zoom set on what’s wrong with your business? That’s a source of exhaustion.

Of course all of our companies have plenty of room for improvement. Systems and strategies can at least be tweaked for greater efficiency. Yet if that’s all you see when you look at your business, you completely miss what’s working positively.

Ask yourself, “What have we done that’s producing positive results?” and “What can we celebrate because it grew profits?”

Focus on this positive aspect. And be grateful. Allow yourself to experience happiness, joy, even elation at your remarkable accomplishment. Write it down in your Gratitude Diary so you read and relive it later.

Such gratitude that focuses on achievement instead of absence, that sees what you have done instead of what needs to be done creates a Work Positive attitude that is your jet fuel to stratospheric future results.

Gratitude Finds Positive People
Inevitably as you focus on the positive at work, you recall that these most excellent outcomes were done by people. These people constitute your Work Positive Dream Team. Every extraordinary goal met involves ordinary people who went the extra mile when others quit.

Instead of worrying about how to please the negative people—Eeyore Vampires—at work, be grateful for these people. They could work anywhere. They could do business with your competitors. And yet they chose you.

Then go one step further. Express your gratitude to them in very specific ways, remarking on their positive qualities that contributed directly to the growth of the company.

Gratitude Finishes Positive Actions
Once your gratitude focuses you on positive results and finds positive people, you find your energy level turbocharged, your attention riveted, and your time more productive.

Those unfinished to-do list items previously surrounded by road blocks like fear of failure are done, and you’re moving forward with ease.


Gratitude redefined your reality.

You now focus on positive results and know that if you did it then, you can do it now. What you have done and what you do have are your default zoom settings.

You now find positive people who contributed to those positive results. You discover that these ideal customers send their friends to do business with you, because they know you will appreciate them.

Instead of, “Are you okay?,” your family and friends say, “You look great! What’s going on?”

Your new-found gratitude propels your business upward on a profitability trajectory for which you say, “Thank you!” as you Work Positive and achieve your business dreams.
