When was the last time you stopped and simply appreciated where you are amidst the hustle and bustle of life?

In my observations of those individuals who have experienced vast success personally, professionally, or entrepreneurially, one thing many of them have in common is that they have a daily practice of expressing gratitude for what they have, even at their lowest points.

If you’re lacking motivation for small or large tasks or goals, one amazing, powerful practice that can take your action to the next level is expressing gratitude.

Last year, I found out that there are actually “Gratitude Trainings” that exist that cost hundreds of dollars. These trainings teach people how to feel, show, and express gratitude in a more powerful way. I personally know individuals who have attended and have had their lives completely changed, experiencing greater abundance in every way after that training. Gratitude is that priceless. 

In the next few weeks, I urge you to try a few ways to express gratitude daily. Here are a few ways you can try to do so: 

  • Create and state five affirmations that state, in present tense, what you’re grateful for now and in the future
  • Create a blessing jar where you add in what you’re grateful for at the end of each day through writing a statement of gratitude on a small sheet of paper daily
  • Meditate or pray on 10 things that you’re grateful for soon after you awake daily


Determine what works for you, experience the benefits of taking your gratitude to the next level, and make whatever practice you choose to express gratitude consistent!

I believe in you!

As always, please send me a note if this resonated with you, and feel free to share this post with family and friends!

Also, feel free to share with me via email at how this post has helped you think of what you are already grateful for in your life or business! I’m excited to hear about it!
