Gratitude- President's Letter

I am sure you are wondering what gratitude, trust and superpower has to do with each other, good question. How are they connected and why are they important? All of them are words that are used by many and have importance personally and professionally. So how do we connect the dots and make those words come alive for each of us.

Have you ever noticed that when you focus on the upside or positive through the lens of gratitude it creates an energy that can pull us into an attitude shift? I don’t know about you but 2020 has been challenging with many ups and downs and frankly has proven to be exhausting at times. Through the last 7 months we have been faced with many things, COVID, Social Justice, politics, distance learning, social distancing, masks, great sadness and yes, the loss of some of our friends and loved ones. To be honest trying to focus on gratitude has, at times, been difficult. While we navigate the situation I wondered, if we did focus on what we can do versus what we cannot, how that could change the landscape and create light in the darkness.

I was once told “what you think about you bring about” so the question I asked myself was what I was thinking about and what was the impact. I realized that the more I started focusing on the joy of the little things that we sometimes take for granted like taking a walk, talking to friends virtually, the gift of time, etc. I am sure many of you already have a daily practice, no matter what it is, the ability to reflect and enjoy the little things creates an energy that others can feel, which, by the way, can be contagious.

As we either begin or continue a practice of gratitude it’s companion, the trust factor, becomes key. Being able to trust that as we use gratitude on a daily basis it will help us find and use our superpower. I believe that the world is waiting for each of us to use our superpower to make a difference in the world. one person at a time, one action at a time and one day at a time. When we have gratitude, we begin to send out a positive energy into the world.

· What are you grateful for today?

· How are you practicing an attitude of gratitude daily?

· How has your gratitude practice changed you personally and professionally?

I am grateful to be a part of this wonderful coaching community. My hope for all of you is that you take a little time to reflect on what you are grateful as we enter this time of Thanksgiving.

In Gratitude,
Deb Johnson
