At Thanksgiving this year, we went around the table and each of us shared what we are thankful for. While it’s cliché, it felt good to publicly acknowledge how much I have to be thankful for. And I loved hearing the different and sometimes surprising answers around the table.
But I want to tap into that feeling more often — not just on Thanksgiving. So, in order to tap into that gratitude, I’ve come up with four easy steps:
- discover why you’re saying thank you
- connect and show appreciation for the gift
- acknowledge that you have more than enough (money, time, possessions)
- share your surplus in a meaningful way.
