Here are five simple ideas to inspire your gratitude practice. Roberta created these prompts to shift your mindset from focusing on the weight of responsibility to recognising and celebrating the seeds of abundance that are sure to grow.
1. Make a list of all the prospects you have reached out to this month. Next to their name, write down one thing you are grateful for from your interaction with them.
2. Make a list of your current clients. Devote one page in your gratitude journal to each of your clients. In your gratitude practice, write down the things you are grateful for in the work you get to do with them.
3. Choose ten names from your email list. Write the names in your gratitude journal, then verbally say their names out loud. Follow their name with a statement of gratitude. For example, you might say something as simple as, “Sara Jones, thank you for subscribing to my email list.” You can take this one step further and send a personal email thanking each person for their support. A little gratitude will let your community know that they are seen and important to you.
4. Look up customer reviews for your business on Google or social media. Make a list of the people who have posted positive reviews in the past month. Begin your day by sitting quietly and verbally thanking each person for the time they took to write a review.
5. Make a list of the people who have helped your business grow in some way. This list may include friends who listened to your ideas, family members who have encouraged you, mentors who have offered support along the way, and vendors or consultants who have offered services and expertise. Next to each person’s name, write down what you appreciate about their contribution.
“While the road to building a business may sometimes feel like an isolated journey, your gratitude practice can easily yield the seeds of abundance when you narrow your lens and specifically offer gratitude for the people who support you,” shares Roberta.
