Daily Post: Add a little "gr" to your attitude

Research at the Berkeley University of California shows that if you add a little "gr" to your attitude, then it will help to "find, remind and bind" you to the people that will enrich your life and help you get the results you want.

The researchers also found that gratitude:

  • is expansive as it broadens your thinking and increases perspective which leads to
  • increased creativity, better problem solving, and
  • is contagious and lifts and energizes those it touches - we all prefer positive, enthusiastic people as opposed to members of the BMW Club (bitching, moaning and whining)
So who do you know that needs a hand written note (one of the most effective ways of expressing gratitude) reminding them how you feel about them?

And next time someone is a little prickly and rubs you up the wrong way, remember that you always have a choice how you respond: you can either complain because rose bushes have thorns, or you can be grateful that thorn bushes have roses.
