Gratitude Always Looks Good On You

What did you wear to work today? A uniform? Business casual? A suit and tie? Jeans and a t-shirt? A blouse and skirt? 

Whatever you wear, wear gratitude. Gratitude always looks good on you! 

Gratefulness is one of the most subtle yet infectious-for-good attitudes we can possess. It can change our own outlook of challenges we face, giving us courage to embrace them. It can infect our co-workers as well, becoming appreciation and respect for others. Gratitude transforms our perceptions of most everything, providing peace and new ways of seeing old tired situations and problems. 

Start showing and saying "Thanks" to the people around you right now. Folks are going to find you more attractive. 

When you meet today to talk about some seemingly intractable issue today with your team, start by saying, "I'm glad I'm not alone in this. I'm glad we face it together!". You will instantly be a more effective manager. 

Wear gratitude. Gratitude always looks good on you.
