GRATITUDE (and a challenge for you, if your game….)
^^^ I see that a LOT online, and people talk about it a lot but I wonder how many ACTUALLY show it – and will explain this turbo-fruity pic in a sec
What do I mean by that?
Well it’s pretty simple really…when did you last take a moment to thank someone, to be grateful, for something they did or for being in your life?
It could be your partner…
It could be a member of your family…
It could be a client (for investing in you)…
It could be your coach/mentor for supporting/helping you…
It could be an employee or contractor for doing a great piece of work…
But why not pick up the phone and call them, send them a message, shoot them a video – your choice
And just thank them for whatever it is they have done
I did this with my parents, mentor, and a few close friends lately. There was NO agenda, I just felt that these people deserved a moment of my time to let them know how much I appreciated them, what they have done for me….and what they have tolerated ha!
Which brings me to this picture, now Pat Divilly is a fair bit deeper than me, but we had a great weekend – honestly It was good to just kick back and have some fun (there wasn’t a work agenda)
But as we were waiting for Big Papa Nige to take us to Bristol airport, he came back upstairs with a bottle of Goose and a thank you card (gloriously pink) to thank me for hosting him
^^^ honestly I was made up by this!
So think how you could make someone else day, and think how that in turn makes YOU feel
This is especially powerful if you are in a little bit of a funk yourself
Let people know
So the challenge?
Pick 5 people
Send ‘em a message WHY you are grateful for them being in your life (in whatever capacity, and it doesn’t have to be all emotional and shit – could just be thanking them for what they have done with/for you)
Let me know what happens?
PS The Pic? Well Pat’s s tough Irishman, so I decided to make it as camp as possible just because it looks deeply wrong….enjoy!
