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. “

    And here is a little Coaching Secret:
    You should hire a coach only after you have done your homework
    and you know WHAT SKILLSET you are shopping for!
    You are shopping for the skillset they can transfer to you.
    YOU are the consumer!
    The money you invest with a 1:1 coach should be well worth it.
    Ask Yourself: What do I want? Do they have what I need?
    After you have sorted out the direction you are going and the skillset you really need,
    then find that ONE on ONE coach that is a good FIT to move you forward.
    CHART YOUR COURSE MASTERCLASS™
    ... Tips to Develop your Leadership Skills
    1. Get a mentor, a coach, a GURU to develp your Sense of SELF
    As the Gutsy GURU Jane is the one who reminds you that: GEE You are YOU ( g u r u).
    To gain the most self-confidence
    a same-sex role model who has 30+ years of experience training LEADERS
    in all 50 U.S. States, 10 Countries, and 1-working vacation as a guest lecturer on Royal Cruise Line is the right Leadership Coach to work with you this year.
    2. Pay attention to your SKILLSET
    Whether you're looking to move into a position of leadership or you're already in one,
    it's important to pay attention to the skills & strengths you currently have to carry out the role, and then consider your future moves and the skills you can start building in readiness.
    3. Learn how to manage TWO things:
    (1) your Emotions and (2) your Team


    Always Remember: People remember the way you make them FEEL!!
    The way you react to situations will impact on the perception people have of you.
    Recognizing that a person, a situation or a task evokes an emotional response (you name it & claim it) allows you to have an objective internal conversation about why and what can be done to resolve the issue.
    Finding this neutral, grounded space allows for you to MANAGE the SITUATION.
    You are only as good as your team.
    Whether you recruited them or inherited them, your team is crucial to your success.
    A reoccuring theme throughout your Year to Clear will be:
