Demonstrating Gratitude for a Great Year’s End

Big Gratitude
It is impossible to be grateful and unhappy at the same time. Choosing one of these emotions makes it impossible to feel the other. “Grateful” and “unhappy” literally can’t occupy the same space at the same time.

You have to choose between being grateful or being depressed, too. These emotions are so far apart that from one pole the opposite pole is not accessible to you. Being “grateful” and “depressed” are mutually exclusive emotional states.

If you are occupying the feeling of thankfulness, you can’t also occupy the feeling of anger. When you are angry, you are occupying the emotion of fear and the state of need. Thankfulness is not a place of wanting. Thankfulness is a place of abundance.
It’s the end of the year, and it can be so easy to get swept into the chaos of the holidays that we forget to take a step back and reflect on what’s truly important in our lives.  And who is truly important in our lives.  It’s important to remember that it’s the people in your life who shape who you are.  Without them, you wouldn’t be the same person you are today.  So it’s important that we take a moment to celebrate those people- and to be grateful that they are in our lives.

Gratitude goes a long way, not just in sales, but in life in general.  It shows humility, respect, and paves a path that can lead to success and happiness.  Therefore, it’s important to tell the people in your life that you’re thankful for them.  Thank your prospects, your coworkers, your managers, your friends, and your family.  Thank them for their time and for being a part of who you are.
