…can you believe this……..people are picking up on Gratitude!

I saw this entry on Facebook the other day:

"…..just got back from my Gratitude Walk….when I go for my walk I focus on all the things I'm grateful for: my faith, my health, my family, the gifts I have been given and my business…."

So what is it about Gratitude….and does it apply in Business to have Gratitude and be grateful….and how does that relate to Goal Setting?

I used this story in a previous post but let me use it again to illustrate the importance of Gratitude this time:

Nan-in, a Japanese master during the Meiji era (1868 – 1912) received a university professor who came to inquire about Zen

Nan-in served tea. He  poured his visitor's cup full, and then kept on pouring…

..the professor watched the overflow until he no longer could restrain himself.

"It is over-full. No more will go in!"

"Like this cup," Nan-in said;"you are full of your own opinions and speculations. How can I show you Zen unless you first empty your cup?"

In exactly the same way…only when we give Gratitude and acknowledge what we already have are we "empty" to receive more!

So…before you set your goals…acknowledge what you already have, be grateful and revisit what you are grateful for daily….and watch for more Business coming your way!
