We can never underestimate the power of gratitude to transform tough things into tolerable.
Two forces for good—gratitude and kindness—are free and easy to apply.
Perhaps that’s the problem.
We can tend to discount things that are too simple as being ineffective. Yet isn’t that what many of us crave more of in this era of rapid change and complexity? The simplicity of gratitude to calm the heart and elevate the mind.
Focus on the Good and You’ll See More of That
It’s just that it’s too easy to see what’s missing… what’s wrong… what’s hard and to focus on that. Instead, remember to focus on the good and the gains, and truly, they will grow.
Focus on the Gains not the Gaps
We first heard this ‘focus on the gains’ concept from Dan Sullivan, cofounder of Strategic Coach. This is also such a simple thing, that is extraordinarily effective. To focus on the gains…on what’s good in your life is to automatically invoke gratitude.
Remember, gratitude works, it’s powerful and it’s free.
“Gratitude is the light that opens the blossom of the heart from which the seeds of kindness flow.”
