Gratitude as a Distinction.

book

According to Merriam-Webster, the definition of Gratitude is a state of being grateful: a feeling of appreciation or thanks.

We, at Gratitude Training, love the quote by Cicero that reads: “Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others.”

We assert that Gratitude is a choice or perspective we choose that brings value to anything. One of the Principles of Leadership we live by is “I am grateful for everything.” We believe that leaders choose Gratitude as it opens up possibilities in all relationships including, romantic, family, friendship, and business.  These possibilities may not be there otherwise.

Gratitude is not only a feeling of appreciation or thanks, it is a context in which we choose to play. I believe I always notice when I am accessing Gratitude, as opposed to ambivalence or judgment, simply by the energy I generate and create.

I say that it is impossible to be frustrated, envious or resentful AND to be grateful at the same time.
