Why We ALL Need to Practice More Gratitude

As Thanksgiving is upon us, I’m filled with gratitude for our Tap the Potential team. They bring their best every day to serve our clients, and they are committed to our mission to help entrepreneurs take their lives back. Our team is impressive, for sure! I’m also grateful for our clients over the years; every single business owner has helped me learn so much on this journey of 17+ years.

For today’s show, I want to focus on ways we can all work gratitude into our daily experiences. An intentional gratitude practice can be a way to lift our spirits every single day. When we acknowledge what we are grateful for, we are recognizing that the source of goodness lies, at least partially, outside of ourselves. That sense of connection with something larger than ourselves is beneficial in many ways. According to positive psychology research, gratitude is consistently associated with greater happiness, positive emotions, improved health, more resilience, and better relationships. Don’t we all need more of those things in our lives? Join me for a closer look at the benefits of gratitude!

Profit by Design is a Tap the Potential Production.

Show Highlights:
  • Remember that the success you wished for and worked for brings more challenges–and it’s the success that someone else is wishing for right now.
  • How gratitude helps us to focus on the good—and grow more of it
  • How our gratitude impacts our team AND our personal self-esteem as business owners
  • How gratitude causes “synchronized activation in multiple brain regions” to produce more serotonin and dopamine (from a 2008 study)
  • What leading gratitude researchers discovered about gratitude, optimism, and improved health
  • What the impacts are when a business owner expresses gratitude–both on their team AND on themselves

About The Author

Dr. Sabrina Starling, The Business Psychologist and international best-selling author of the How to Hire the Best series and The 4 Week Vacation™, is the founder of Tap the Potential and host of the Profit by Design podcast. At Tap the Potential, we work to free business owners from the constant demands of a growing business.

We believe work supports life, not the other way around. Clients in our Better Business, Better Life coaching program have more time for what matters most and more money in their bank account than they’ve ever had. Next, we send them off on a 4 Week Vacation™ to celebrate their hard-earned journey to take their life back!

Dr. Sabrina and her team at Tap the Potential are on a mission to change the story of entrepreneurship from one of long hours, grinding it out, to one of sustainably profitable businesses that support and enhance life. The Tap the Potential Solution™ and our Tap the Potential Family of Business Owners are disrupting small business as usual. We are on our way to making the Tap the Potential Solution™ the mainstream model for growing business.

By 2023, 150 Tap the Potential clients will have taken 4 Week Vacations. These are the trailblazers, role modeling what’s possible for entrepreneurs. In many entrepreneurial circles, it is becoming more and more common for one entrepreneur to ask another, “Have you taken a 4 Week Vacation™?” (as opposed to asking “How many employees do you have?” or “What is your annual revenue?”). Taking a fully unplugged 4 Week Vacation is rapidly becoming the recognized symbol of entrepreneurial success.

Never one to accept the status quo or back down from a challenge, Dr. Sabrina’s How to Hire the Best series grew from her desire to solve the toughest hiring challenges interfering with her clients’ growth and profitability. What sprang from her experience working with entrepreneurs in rural areas catapulted her into becoming the world’s leading expert in attracting top talent in small businesses—no matter what hiring challenges those businesses are facing—and earned Tap the Potential’s reputation as the go-to resource for entrepreneurs committed to creating Great Places to Work with thriving coaching cultures and highly engaged team members working from strengths.

As The Business Psychologist, and with her years of driving profit in small businesses, Dr. Sabrina knows what it takes to find, keep, and motivate exceptional performance out of your biggest investment—team members.
