This month we have been talking about the importance of gratitude in our lives.
As Black belts in training, how can incorporate it into our daily lives?
By taking more of a leadership role!
- 1. Take time to regularly express your gratitude to the people you surround yourself with. Use phrases like “Thank you”, “I really appreciate your help with…..”, “Thank you for helping me with my……”, “I am so grateful for……”. I think you get the message.
2. Take the time to encourage your friends and family to express what they are grateful for.
The best way to make this happen is for you to take the lead by sharing some things others have done for you. Talk about the small things, too. For instance, perhaps you could share an example of an act of kindness that helped you when you were having a tough day.
Doing this on a regular basis will help raise your friends and families gratitude and awareness of how important it is to help one another.
