Yes, the #BennettBlog is back. We are taking things deeper into personal practices. You want to read a blog solely about capitalization rates or the federal reserve’s interest rate moves, go find it elsewhere. Here we apply actual life lessons to business.
I used to think having gratitude in business would or could make you weak. That acknowledging what I’m thankful for while I am fighting for more success would be a self-inflicted wound. That somehow it would stop be from earning more or feeling better if I stopped to “smell the roses”. No way can someone in the real estate business use this word and action as a cornerstone to their daily grind right????? WRONG ! Nothing could be further from the truth. Anyone that knows me knows I spend a lot of time mentioning gratitude. In my personal social media posts to my hashtags.
Acknowledging the power of this word, it’s action, and the thoughts and beliefs behind it is the first step in reaping its rewards. But do not let it allow to be singularly tied to this Thanksgiving Holiday. The more gratitude we have, the more fulfilled we are. The more fulfilled the happier you will be. The happier you are the more productive you will be and the more you will have to give to your friends, family, co-workers, clients, and even competitors. Do you see the point ??
And here is the thing, the benefits get better and stronger the more you acknowledge the things you have gratitude for. Acknowledge, to yourself or others that you’re thankful for a business partner, an assistant, your husband or wife, children, and watch how your relationship with them grow, get’s stronger and is more productive. You see
Every day, I express my gratitude for 3 non-financial things in my life. It centers you, keeps you focused on what matters, and brings more fulfillment to you.
Do you think Bill Gates or Sam Zell ignore gratitude in their business? I doubt it. You can have all the success in the world but if you ignore the practice of gratitude you will never be truly fulfilled.
I’m thankful that I have learned the meaning of gratitude and its power.
