Many people are constantly looking for success. They are convinced that once they feel a certain way, then they will finally know that they are successful. But the issue with that is many times that said feeling will change, evidently pushing the feeling of success further and further way. Some spend their entire lives finding this success, often never truly reaching it.
Today I am going to tell you why gratitude is the only way to ever truly feel successful.
The holidays are an excellent time to reflect. It's almost the end of the year and we are starting to look into the next year. Goals and dreams begin to change a little as we continue our journey to be more successful. But what most people miss is the opportunity to be grateful for what they have now.
People believe that success will bring you happiness, but it's actually the complete opposite. Happiness and joy will bring you success. This is why we start our daily huddles with gratitude moments. We want to reflect on our wins and celebrate those. We know we have our bad days, but we can't sit and sweat the small stuff. It's all small stuff.
So, I invite you to take on the challenge of discussing the good stuff. Hell, if some days the only thing I can think of that I'm grateful for is my coffee, then so be it. This coffee may be the first happy thing and perhaps a whirlwind of other great things may soon come. We can't dwell on the bad days or the thoughts of, "once I feel XYZ, I will know that I am successful." You are already successful, and only once you learn to acknowledge your current success will you be able to unlock higher levels of success - the successes you have been searching for all this time.
