“The Pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts. No Americans have been more impoverished than these who, nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving.”

 

~H.U. Westermayer
It’s been beat to death the need to show gratitude to our clients, our staff, our family and our Maker.  So why do we still stuggle with it?

 

We already know that showing gratitude will:

  1. Increase return customers
  2. Develop more loyal employees
  3. Improve our family relationships
  4. Make us happier people.

 

I know I tend to not show gratitude when I:

  • am focused on a goal that I have not reached
  • don’t feel the result is as good as I had hoped
  • have too much on my plate to accomplish
  • feel that the result is owed to me.

So here is my suggestion: Before setting your goals or moving on to the next one – count your blessing. I will try this week too . . .
