Gratitude simply means having an appreciation for the things that you have


As we approach Thanksgiving, it is especially important for us to reflect on those special things that we have been gifted. As entrepreneurs, we are often focused on the next move however, we need to remember to take the time out to smell the beautiful roses and be happy for what we have today. An attitude of gratitude is one that will help you appreciate where you are today, and remain steadfast in your journey of accomplishing bigger and better things.
The term gratitude simply means having an appreciation for the things that you have. No matter where you are in your business growth, there is much to be appreciate about. The truth is, all of us entrepreneurs should be grateful. To have a business is a blessing, and we should express gratitude for this every day. The journey of being an entrepreneur is filled with unique learning experiences that we should feel gratified to have. With Thanksgiving coming up on Thursday, we should remain extra vigilant to express our gratitude. Here are some methods and ways to make sure that you can remain thankful all year round.
 
Reflect
At some point your business started with only a dream. Somehow you were able to put the pedal to the metal and make it happen. This took a lot of strength, gumption, and even a little bit of luck at times (it’s perfectly fine to admit it). Reflect on how far you have come over this past year, from where you were before. At some point you built a business from the ground up. This is an amazing feat and much to be thankful for.
 
Create Lists
Don’t you just love jotting down a list? So, effective! Making lists is a great idea when you are trying to keep organized. A list can also help to put things into perspective. If you are looking for things to be grateful for, you should make a list. Looking for things to be thankful for should be easy for entrepreneurs. A sample list would look like:
*Large profit margin
*Great customers
*Positive reviews
 
Lists will help you find things you may not have paid much attention to all year. Every little thing adds up into a lot to be happy about.
 
Motivate Yourself
A characteristic that every entrepreneur should have is being self-motivated. When reflecting over the past year, motivate yourself to do even better in 2016. Set up an action plan for how to increase the different parts of your business that can use work and focus on how to build up your brand even better overall.
 
Read Inspiring Literature
Take some time out to read uplifting books or stories from other entrepreneurs can lift your spirits as well as give you a few tips on how to grow your own business. There is nothing more inspiring that hearing about other business owners having a success story. Allow their accomplishments to motivate you as well.
 
Giving Back
An important part of gratitude that is often missed is giving back. It is necessary and good karma to give back to the community, people, and companies that helped you to become successful. Some of the ways that you can give back are through offering discounts, holding giveaways, and donating money to causes and the community. Expressing your gratitude through giving is sure to get you noticed and bring more business your way.

Positivity can change your life !

What makes positivity so important? A positive attitude is important for a great many reasons. Having a positive attitude helps you cope more easily with the responsibilities of everyday life and helps to relieve stress and strengthen personal relationships. A positive attitude will help you to avoid worrying unnecessarily and will enhance your physical and mental well-being. We have all had to deal with a ‘Negative Nelly‘ at one time or another throughout our lives. A Negative Nelly is that person who is always full of complaints and is never satisfied with anything that happens in their life. If you have ever been around a ‘Negative Nelly‘ for an extended period of time you know how draining this type of person can be an effect they can have on your own level of positivity. Negativity is exhausting, it takes a ton of effort and it doesn’t do one bit of good for anyone. Having a positive attitude is actually quite easy to achieve. It consists mainly of being aware of your thoughts, ac

7 Inspiring Ways to Maintain Your Motivation

When it comes to getting things accomplished, motivation can be hard to come by. Yet, motivation is exactly what is needed. A small amount of motivation is required to do small, simple things, like brushing your teeth. Bigger tasks require more motivation to complete. But how do you manufacture motivation when you have none? Learn to motivate yourself and you’ll accomplish more: Use pain. If you fail to complete a particular task, what damage will be done? It might just be the inconvenience of having even more to do the following day. Or it could be the prospect of someone dropping by and seeing how filthy your home is. Come up with several good reasons why failing to take action would be painful to you. Use pleasure.

Make a long list that will help to keep the fire burning inside to successfully deal with those unpleasant or

Discover Your Passion: What Are Your Secret Talents?

What talents are hiding within you?  Many people have grown up believing they didn’t have anything special or unique to add to the world. Perhaps they came from mediocre surroundings or had no encouragement for their gifts so they went unrecognized. Or maybe they repressed their talents because they felt ashamed. Whatever the reason, it’s all too easy to believe our talents and passions are not worth pursuing.   Everyone Has Talent A great many of us are wandering around with the belief that we aren’t all that interesting when it comes to our natural gifts. But we all have more talent than we think we do. Very often we hear news stories about children with incredible abilities. Many of them are entertainers or child prodigies featured on daytime talk shows. While it’s incredible to see these talented young children, don’t forget about your own children’s talents, which might not be as obvious. They may not be as advanced as the kids on television but everyone’s talents are worth develo
