Seven Powers of Gratitude

Seven powers of gratitude:

#1. Gratitude energizes those who receive it and frees those who express it.

#2. Gratitude invites a painful past to expand vision and mission. But ungratefulness frowns at the future.

#3. Gratitude beats back fear and worry.

#4. Gratitude absorbs frustration.

#5. Gratitude deflates arrogance.

#6. Gratitude fuels creativity.

#7. Gratitude expands influence.

Four gratitude practices: think of gratitude as a behavior not a feeling. Practice it; don’t wait to feel it.

  1. Before composing an email think of one thing you appreciate about the recipient.
  2. Before meetings write one thing you respect about each person around the table.
  3. Avoid the “but” after noticing something you appreciate. Give yourself permission to let gratitude stand on its own.
  4. Schedule brief gratitude walks three times a week.
