You are now listening to Leverage for Growth. Hey everybody, this is Jesse P. Gilmore, founder of Niche and Control and creator of Leverage for Growth. Welcome to the Daily Leverage Edition. Today’s topic is this, harnessing the power of gratitude in business. So back, relax, and welcome to today’s Daily Leverage. So today, we’re gonna dive deep into a topic that’s both deeply personal and profoundly impactful in the business realm, gratitude. Recognizing and appreciating the positives even when you’re dealing with challenges, can revolutionize our motivations, our interactions, and the business approach. So let’s explore this powerful emotion together. Now, gratitude as a business catalyst, it’s not just a feeling, it’s a perspective. When we incorporate it into our business mindset, we can reshape our aspirations, our strategies, even our interactions. For me, gratitude means pausing. and acknowledging our achievements, valuing our team’s efforts, and even discerning the lessons hidden within the challenge. It’s the yin to the yang of entrepreneurial pressure. Now, every entrepreneur faces obstacles, be it a financial downturn, disagreements with partners, unforeseen external challenges. But while the initial reaction may be frustration or a sense of defeat, Using gratitude lets us see these hurdles in a new light. Instead of the pure setbacks, they transform into invaluable lessons, enhancing our experience and resilience. Let me share a few personal episodes where a change in viewpoint made a world of difference. Gratitude within a team is nothing short of transformative. This change of viewpoint leads back towards mindset. And in the process of… time of this recording, I am in the middle of writing my Leverage for Growth book, The Agency Owner’s Guide to Freedom. And it’s been a journey of figuring out exactly what mindset shifts are. We’re in the process of finishing the mindset chapter. And ultimately, these changes of viewpoint, these perspectives, these different ways of looking at the things that happen to you, ultimately, they’re happening for you. And that change of viewpoint where you’re looking for the gift in the midst of the challenge ultimately allows you to see things that you wouldn’t otherwise see. And gratitude within a team is nothing short of transformative. Recognizing and valuing each other’s input cultivates this environment of mutual respect and collaboration. It’s not merely uttering, thank you. It’s a sincere acknowledgement of the individual’s intrinsic value. When a team pulses with gratitude, cohesion and teamwork and collaboration is reinforced, the morale of the team skyrockets and performance often improves. Now our clients and customers form the backbone of our business. Envision the profound connections that we can nurture when we engage with them with authentic gratitude. It’s about more than just being thankful for their business. It’s valuing their feedback, their loyalty, even the challenges or the feedback that it might be either negative or seen as improvements that they’re bringing to the table. Such interactions not only reinforce trust, but cultivate a bond that transcends mere transactions. So now it is time for the daily leverage. So where in your world, whether in your life or business, have you been taking things for granted? Is it in your life with your health and body? Is it in your life with your spirituality or self-direction? Is it in your relationships with your spouse, partner, or kids? Is it in your business, finances, or team? Once you’ve located where you’ve been overlooking the value and the lessons and you’re aware that the change needs to happen, my question to you is this, what are you willing and able to do about it today?
