As a busy entrepreneur, it can often seem that you are beset by a never-ending mountain of problems. It can be extremely stressful.
One of the most valuable coping mechanisms I have discovered in the last few years to help me cope is carrying out some form of gratitude practice. It has helped me enormously in maintaining a positive attitude when things have been tough.
When you express gratitude, your energy immediately shifts. And when you shift your energy to a higher frequency, you will attract more good into your life.
One of the best exercises I’ve discovered is called the 3Ps (thank you to Dr. Rangan Chatterjee)
The 3 Ps stand for Person. Pleasure. Promise.
Person: Think of someone you feel grateful for on that day and focus on sending them love and wishing them well in their life.
Pleasure: Do the same thing but think of something you experienced during the day which gave you pleasure; however small it was. Maybe it was watching a kitten play. Eating a particularly yummy sandwich, or playing a great shot at tennis. Picture this in your mind and fill yourself with a powerful feeling of gratitude.
Promise: Think of something that happened in the day that holds some promise in the future. Maybe you’ve finally booked a few days away, you have found a nice pair of shoes you want to buy, or you have arranged to meet a friend for a good catch-up. Focus on this and form a strong feeling of gratitude.
I’ve found it really helps improve my mood and raises my general well-being… so why not give it a try.
I help entrepreneurs and go–getters turn their dreams into reality.
I can help you build a business that delivers the income, freedom and fulfilment you truly desire.
