The word gratitude is derived from the Latin word gratia, which means grace, graciousness, or gratefulness (depending on the context). In some ways gratitude encompasses all of these meanings. Gratitude is a thankful appreciation for what an individual receives, whether tangible or intangible. With gratitude, people acknowledge the goodness in their lives. In the process, people usually recognize that the source of that goodness lies at least partially outside themselves. As a result, gratitude also helps people connect to something larger than themselves as individuals — whether to other people, nature, or a higher power.

In positive psychology research, gratitude is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness. Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships.

People feel and express gratitude in multiple ways. They can apply it to the past (retrieving positive memories and being thankful for elements of childhood or past blessings), the present (not taking good fortune for granted as it comes), and the future (maintaining a hopeful and optimistic attitude). Regardless of the inherent or current level of someone’s gratitude, it’s a quality that individuals can successfully cultivate further.

Research on gratitude

In one study on gratitude, conducted by Robert A. Emmons, Ph.D., at the University of California at Davis and his colleague Mike McCullough at the University of Miami, randomly assigned participants were given one of three tasks. Each week, participants kept a short journal. One group briefly described five things they were grateful for that had occurred in the past week, another five recorded daily hassles from the previous week that displeased them, and the neutral group was asked to list five events or circumstances that affected them, but they were not told whether to focus on the positive or on the negative. Ten weeks later, the gratitude group felt better about their lives as a whole, were a full 25% happier than the hassled group; reported fewer health complaints and they exercised an average of 1.5 hours more.

In a later study by Emmons, people were asked to write every day about things for which they were grateful. Not surprisingly, this daily practice led to greater increases in gratitude than did the weekly journaling in the first study. But the results showed another benefit: Participants in the gratitude group also reported offering others more emotional support or help with a personal problem, indicating that the gratitude exercise increased their goodwill towards others, or more technically, their “pro-social” motivation.
Another study on gratitude was conducted with adults having congenital and adult-onset neuromuscular disorders (NMDs), with the majority having post-polio syndrome (PPS). Compared to those who were not jotting down their blessings nightly, participants in the gratitude group reported more hours of sleep each night, and feeling more refreshed upon awakening. The gratitude group reported more satisfaction with their lives as a whole, felt more optimism about the upcoming week and they felt considerably more connected with others than did the control group. “

    Our Philosophy of Success
    & Individual Achievement Rocks!
    It takes courage to step out of your comfort zone,
    even then, there's no guarantees
    but your chances improve 100%
    when you discover what you are good at
    and then determine how to deliver "that" to the world.
    THAT is why you should work with Jane Herron!
    AND because . . .
    YOU are so done playing SMALL
    DONE hiding your LIGHT
    It's time to wake up feeling inspired and go to bed feeling like
    you have delivered your highest and best good.
    Yes, you have been living with a lampshade on your head
    foolishly trying to please others
    which has made it impossible for YOU to shine your LIGHT.
    You have been a people pleaser, wanting to be liked
    ... now you see that got you no where,
    and it cost you big time
    because now you are sooooo out of focus,
    and so disconnected from yourself.
    Some days it feels impossible to like yourself or manage/mother others.
    Hmmm, am I trying to be their buddy or their boss?
    Maybe you have begun to doubt your skillset
    because you are constantly talked over, second-guessed, or find yourself in toxic environments that suggest you are less than.
    Maybe you have been hanging with the wrong women.
    Cream rises to the TOP
    and if women aren’t hanging with other top leaders
    or champions of women
    it's hard to stretch, grow, build, or harness your power!
    Maybe you have forgetten to give yourself credit.
    Do you pat yourself on the back, openly celebrating your accomplishments and proudly discussing your success?
    Is it difficult for you to acknowledge
    'how great thou art'?
    Does it feel too braggy, too confident or too bold?
    To avoid stepping up, standing out and OWNING your power,
    did you choose to instead take a LIFE DETOUR?
    That darn TRICKSTER made that detour look so very very appealing,
    and I guess you didn't get the memo reminding you that
    ALL detours have a tangible or intangible COST attached to them:
    That nice little life detour allowed you to play small and dim your light for a little longer because it made it easier for you to get along instead of standing out!
    And detours are good because
    you deal with fewer questions, fewer doubters, and fewer haters, right?
    (ALL of those folks sit in the CHEAP SEATS
    meaning THEY have done NOTHING more
    than 'provide criticism' of which is a reflection of their fears of doing what you ARE wanting to DO)
    And what sucks even more...
    your still small voice did send YOU
    several loud verbal 'warnings',
    but you chose NOT to listen when it beaconed.
    So today is the day that you are now thinking and feeling UGH
    I dread facing the Time-Energy-Money that it is going to take
    to get out of this DETOUR and get myself back ON COURSE.
    UGH I really hate backing out of this mess
    while those CHEAP SEAT PEOPLE are watching me ...
    however it is time to regain lost ground.
    And even with all of that inner regret and fear of the future,
    YOU absolutely know
    you cannot + will not do that detour for another minute,
    another day, another week, another month, another quarter.
    You have proven to yourself time and again
    that living your life to please others does NOT work.
    YOU have the ABILITY
    to make better choices.
    YOU created your circumstances by your past choices,
    and You do NOT need more proof or more time to think things over
    to reach better conclusions.
    How do You get back ON course?
    You need the truth.
    The whole truth.
    And nothing but the TRUTH.

    There are lots of great reasons to work with Jane Herron
    as your Leadership & Individual Achievement Coach
    specializing in emerging Leaders and Sales Professionals
    Jane Herron
    teaches leadership and personal achievement
    to executives and emerging leaders around the world.
    Named Who's Who of American Women,
    Jane’s groundbreaking programs and speaking engagements
    have been instrumental in teaching women the navigational skills
    required to emerge as a high achieving leader!
    CHANGE begins with CHOICE
    Your VOICE carries POWER
    Your ACTIONS carry IMPACT
    Jane has been called
    The Gutsy GURU
    because she reminds YOU that
    Gee, You Are You (g u r u)
    and nobody does YOU quite like YOU".
    She is GUTSY
    because for the past 30+ years she has criss-crossed the country
    as motivational speaker, writer, corporate trainer, executive coach
    and member of National Speakers Association.
    SHE has trained over 300,000 professionals in full day workshops in:
    Sales, Self-Esteem, Leadership, and Powerful Communication Trainings, Productivity, Outdoor Team-Building/Ropes Courses.
    You've already accomplished so much in your life.
    On the outside, it looks like you've got it ALL together.
    But, on the inside, you can sense of the fact that you're not living a life that truly FILLS you UP. You long for purpose and meaning.
    As Brené Brown would say:
    "You are lost in the Wilderness",
    and you are on a "Quest for True Belonging"
    Jane has been a student and advocate of Brené Brown's powerful work on daring greatly, vulnerability, self-compassion, how shame affects your courage and how important this work is to women's personal growth!
    She KNOWS what it means to live with a lampshade on her head,
    having to deal with the consequences
    of staying lost in the wilderness too long,
    and not shining her light for her whole life.
    She is a RECOVERING people pleaser
    a lamp shade wearer,
    and she did not have a map in her pocket, a compass in her hand,
    or a FULL commitment in her heart for years,
    so she knows what it feels like to be LOST in the Wilderness.
    She also knows how good it feels to SHINE her LIGHT
    and to be a lighthouse for others who are lost in the storm.
    ONE lighthouse principle she teaches:
    **When the LIGHTHOUSE strikes its LIGHT,
    it does not measure the size of the storm,
    it does not judge the storm.
    It does not say to itself:
    'I' must understand where that storm is coming from
    before 'I' choose to SHINE my LIGHT.

    NO-it does not judge, measure or wait
    because it knows its PURPOSE!
    It has ONE purpose and that is to SHINE.
    And that is also your purpose-to shine your light!
    Jane is a Transformational Leader who is willing to RISK
    your feelings temporarily so she may affect your future permanently!

    This is your year to look at HOW got you here and WHEN you are going to step into being the true leader you know yourself to be ... inspiring and propelling women in your organization and on your team to take their leadership positions.
    And here is a little coaching secret:
    hiring an expensive coach to help you sort-sort-sort through
    "WHAT do I want" and "HOW am I going to get there" is sort of dumb!
    The average price of coaching packages typically ranges
    between $200 to $750/mo
    and if you want 1:1, I have seen the price up to $800/hr.
    Are you in SHOCK?
    I was
    You should hire a coach only after you have done your homework
    and you know what SKILLS you are shopping for!
    You are shopping for the skills they can transfer to you.
    YOU are the consumer!

    YOU need to shop until you drop to find the coach
    who has the years of experience that 'you need' to add to your toolbox!
    YOU do not need to buy from the person who has NO skills,
    but got your attention with a fancy website and some great marketing!
    Make sure you find a coach that is a good fit
    and has the training & experience to move you forward in your life.
    Jane has priced her
    Chart Your Course Leadership MasterClass
    well below industry standards.
    The money you invest with a coach should be well worth it. Consider what experience this person truely offers and ask yourself:
    What do I want?
    Remember THEY may have hired a really great marketing company to sell them, you absolutely have the right to interview them before you plop down $1000's of dollars.
    Invest in yourself wisely!

    the clarity and the confidence that you will have will be so compelling, so life changing, you will look back and wonder WHY
