Remember the classic little book, Think and Grow Rich? I was reading an ezine today in which Rebecca Fine used this subtle twist on that title — Thank and Grow Rich. Isn’t that a great thought? Do you think you really could “thank” your way to growing rich?
It seems our ability to express gratitude is much like a muscle. The more we use and exercise it, the easier it becomes – and the more we find ourselves just naturally sharing gratitude. Try it out for a week or two. Show sincere appreciation to everyone who comes in your path. The waitress who re-fills your water glass, the mailman who brings a package to your door, the dry-cleaning attendant who hands you your shirts, and the speaker who just inspired you with her message. And yes, we know that expressed gratitude does tend to return to us, multiplied.
Exercise your gratitude muscle – and lets all get a little “richer” in 09.
