Gratitude plays a big role in the life of Entrepreneurs and especially Real Estate Professionals; your business is a people business and you cannot succeed by yourself sitting on island. #KeySuccessIdeas - You are connected to the community, to your neighbors, and to all the people thinking about Buying and Selling nearby. You are in the business of People not Houses and therefore developing a Gratitude Mindset goes a long way to connecting you authentically locally.
What is Gratitude? The dictionary says: The state of being grateful. And Grateful is defined as: Appreciative of benefits received. So then what is a Gratitude Mindset? It is the state of living your life aware of the Gratitude so you can start noticing all of the achievements around you. In other words, living one’s life committed to noticing “The Good” that surrounds us, and celebrating it regardless of our participation in it.
Do not think it is easy to develop a Gratitude Mindset; especially when you are surrounded with “News” which really means terrible news about the world; and surrounded with people who some only see the horrible and terrible and have no time to celebrate the good. They look at you as being an Alien who does not understand what is truly going on in the world. When you say: “I am Grateful that the Plane is already at the gate and that the boarding process got all of us on the plane on time.” The naysayers would say: “Why are you grateful for this? That was their job in the first place; that’s what should happen.” I choose to see boarding a plane as an act of Gratitude because it gets me to be with the people in my Boot-Camp Classes; which is what I love to do.
How does a Gratitude Mindset manifest itself in one’s daily life? This is the beauty of this mindset, you get to choose. I say start by noticing those around you and catching them doing something Right. One of the things I do is to randomly call my friends on Social Media and chat about their life and what they are up to. When you give a friend a chance to articulate what is important in their life they become more passionate about it; so simply listening to their dreams and validating their journey is an act of Gratitude.
Another way to nurture a Gratitude Mindset is to bring to the fore this hard question: “What difficulties and/or upsets have I caused in others?” Not an easy question; but an important one. It will keep you grounded on your intention of being an Agent of the Good; and help you rectify any unintentional harm you may have triggered.
This is not an easy journey to embark on, and some will ridicule your commitment to have Gratitude flowering in your heart, but the journey is so worthwhile. You will ease your Stress; You will become more approachable; You will experience more Joy and become an instigator of Joy in the life of others; and you will receive back even though you are not looking for any rewards. Let me end with this quote by Melody Beattie: “Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” - #8WeekSuccess
