Gratitude can be a game-changer and as Steve Harvey puts it, it can help us erase negativity. No matter what we do, whether we own a business or work for someone else, we can all be grateful for it. It’s easy to lose ourselves to the humdrum and monotony of working day after day. It’s easy to cultivate negativity for our work, our co-workers or our boss, and forget to be thankful for what we have. It’s easy to get lazy, lackadaiscal, and just go through the motions of our workday. It’s easy to harbor hate and resentment over little incidences. And that’s why, as counterintuitive it may seem, we must cultivate an attitude of gratitude in our workplace.
Even if we don’t feel in a “joyous” mood, we can make our lives a whole lot easier when we express our thanks to our work and all the people around us. It’s good to cultivate a habit of saying “thank you,” and from my own personal experience, I can say that it makes life overall much more pleasurable and free-flowing.
The more we say “thank you,” the more we mean it, and the more positive impact it brings in our lives and others’. Also, those people who receive a “thank you” from someone, are likely to pay it forward to their co-workers and the other people in their lives who may need some words of appreciation and encouragement.
Strive to cultivate a mindset and heartset of gratitude first and foremost as you wake up in the morning. Being grateful is a conscious choice that you can make, no matter what your current circumstances are. This will not only help you redirect your focus and attention towards more constructive things but also ensure that you have efficient energy management throughout your day.
PS: Practicing gratitude is not only a great way to incorporate mindfulness and awareness into our daily routine, but it also acts as a form of self-care and reorients us back to our humanness.
