How Being Grateful Will Help You Attract Success

inspiration leadership Dec 22, 2021

I’m sure you work really hard and you do everything you can to achieve your dreams and to have a successful enterprise. But sometimes, the easiest way to attract that success is by being thankful for what you have accomplished. 

Thanksgiving is one of our treasured traditions in the US and an occasion where we reflect on the things that we are grateful for. But we have to be thankful all year long! So, taking that holiday spirit, I want to invite you to constantly ponder on what you are most appreciative of your business and of the things that you have. Trust me, it’s a great exercise and it’ll bring you many benefits! Here are two of the most tangible ones:

  1. Having a mentality of abundance

If you focus on the things that you don't have and the things that you wish you had, you are attracting scarcity. But if instead, you focus on the things that you do have and you are thankful for them, then the mindset of abundance will come into your being. 

Here’s a truth that I’m not sure you have realized: if you are reading this blog post, then you have more than most people in the world. That means that you have enough to be able to live a life that is healthy and happy. Do we want more? Absolutely! But if you really focus on that and the reality of what that means, you’ll see that anything that you accomplish beyond that is just icing on the cake.

Growing up, I always had the American dream, and I ended up accomplishing it back in 2002 when I bought my first home with my husband. It was a beautiful house with three bedrooms, two and a half baths, a living room-kitchen combination, and a backyard in a fun, safe American neighborhood. For me, that was the ultimate dream to be happy and healthy. Ever since things had just been icing on the cake. 

For me, every day is a day of being grateful for everything, for what my life is, and for what I'm able to do, sharing this information with you, and I'm so grateful to have this opportunity and to have the abilities and the tools to do so.

Have you realized that you are already successful because you have all these amazing things to be thankful for? You already are successful. Focus on the things that you do have to keep that mindset of abundance and to always be grounded in knowing that you have enough and everything else is just going to be icing on the cake.

  1.  Getting allies to help you grow

When you are truly thankful for the contribution that everyone in your team does, and the time and effort they dedicate to you, whether it's little or a lot and your actions show this appreciation, wondrous things happen. Because when you are grateful you are more patient, more caring, and more giving

That means that as a leader, you probably train them more to help them be successful and confident. Perhaps you’ll pay them more because you know that they deserve to get a salary increase. You will probably communicate more with them and let them be more involved in the organization. 

If you do all these and other actions to show them you are truly thankful for everything that they do for you, they will know it, they will feel it. And then, what will happen is that they are going to willingly do the things that are necessary to help you be successful.

Learn here why caring about your people is another key to being successful.

Reflect on this: during a recruitment process, the employer is not the only one that chooses; candidates also choose the company they want to work for. Don’t forget that the people that work for you could be somewhere else, but they chose to be with you. You have to be thankful for that, and that action will then come back when they help you achieve your goals and dreams. But first, you have to be thankful for them.
