Gratitude is important. Every day we go through life and good things happen to us. Sometimes this may not be as significant or frequent as we like, but it does happen, nonetheless. Many years ago, I had a colleague tell me to spend more of my energy looking for what’s right or going well with the organization and this positively affected my overall attitude. I’ve always found it a bit odd how perception can influence reality, but it does. I encourage you to spend some time thinking about what you should be grateful for in your life and then express gratitude to those deserving of your sentiments. It will make a positive difference for them and you.
