This is the kind of subject that is not necessarily business-oriented but has so much impact on your business. Gratitude is so important to be able to approach business in a healthy way. You cannot avoid experiencing huge highs and huge lows in your business. Gratitude allows you to balance out the mistakes you learn with the great things that are also happening. This allows you to create longevity for your business. I try to have some kind of gratitude practice on my walks everyday. When I fail to do that, I noticed that little things start to annoy me. My two Community Managers in our Female Indie Musician Community, Cayla Brooke and Beth Matthew, will discuss this on today’s podcast.

Gratefulness has a lot to do with our mindset. When someone is grateful, their mindset is different. If we come from a state of gratitude, it makes our music better. When we’re positive about things, that makes life worth living. We become more solution-oriented than problem-oriented. It’s a really important subject that changes a lot of things in our lives. We can choose to focus on the good things going on instead of the bad.
Imagine going through this pandemic without technology, we would not be able to do Facebook lives or access courses at a price next to nothing. Depending on our mindset, we can either sit at home and whine or look for something to be grateful for. Even if you don’t have support at home, you can actually find support online. We are so fortunate.
Gratitude is the quality of being thankful, the readiness to show appreciation and return kindness. When we’re grateful, we tend to look for the positive and attract more opportunities. We can help train our minds to be grateful. We can also do small routines like sending thank you cards to people weekly or thinking of three things to be grateful about each day.
People who are more grateful are less-stressed, less-depressed and more satisfied. It lifts our wellbeing mentally and physically. Even if we don’t feel grateful, we can cultivate an attitude of gratitude. Practicing gratitude makes us happier. If we can start being grateful even in really tough situations, it can help us process things and lessons we’ve learned. Why don’t we start practicing gratitude everyday?
