HOW DO YOU PUT GRATITUDE INTO WORDS?

Writing a Gratitude Story

In reality, go-it-alone entrepreneurs rarely go it alone.

There is often someone who believed in them, someone who took time on their own journey to render aid.

Take a few minutes to ask yourself:

  • Who inspired you to become an entrepreneur?
  • Who led you to discover the great game of business?
  • Who helped you find your success?
  • Have you ever properly thanked them?

Now that you have that name, take a minute to write a letter letting that individual know how they helped shape you. Thanking your life-changing hero is not something that you can do sincerely with an email or phone call, so contact them and set up a lunch or meeting to read your letter to them. Face to face. Toe to toe. Eyeball to eyeball.

They took the time for you. It's time that you returned the favor. It will prove to be one of the most gratifying times in your life.
