This holiday season, give yourself the gift of a gratitude mindset.

I don’t think we talk about gratitude enough, and I believe incorporating it into our daily lives can make a significant impact.

One aspect of my routine that not many people are aware of is my commitment to accountability partners. Every day, I share with them my top ten things that I’m grateful for. The key here is to keep the list dynamic, changing it daily. Why? Because I’ve discovered that the more actively I search for things to be grateful for, the more my subconscious uncovers, creating a beautiful cycle of gratitude.

Early on, a mentor shared a valuable insight with me — a truth that changed my perspective. He pointed out that too often, people fixate on what they lack. The consequence of this mindset is perpetual dissatisfaction, a perpetual focus on what’s missing, leading to a negative mood and an absence of gratitude.

“Direct your attention to the aspects of your life that bring joy.”

When you intentionally focus on the things you’re grateful for, a profound shift occurs. You start noticing more reasons to be grateful, creating a positive feedback loop. This wisdom resonated with me deeply, prompting a personal commitment: regardless of how challenging my day gets, irrespective of the hurdles in real estate or the toughness of life, I will consciously reflect on at least ten things I’m grateful for daily.

As we approach the holiday season and usher in the New Year, I extend a challenge to you: embrace gratitude. Direct your attention to the aspects of your life that bring joy. By consistently focusing on the positive aspects, you not only amplify your sense of gratitude but also attract more reasons to be thankful. It’s a mindset that transforms challenges into opportunities and cultivates a life filled with appreciation and love.
