On gratitude

Yesterday, I met with a group of international coaches and photographers for a workshop entitled “Powerful Start with AHA – photos, that inspire”. I was explaining the reasons behind several coaching questions which I included in this tool, called “AHA – photos that inspire”.

There are 12 questions in the AHA. One of them is about gratitude.

I asked the group “Why did I put gratitude to the questions. Why gratitude is so important that I included a question about it? How do you think?”

The answers were very good. And they helped to formulate a very special reflection on gratitude. Just read.

  • You see life from a completely different perspective. A new point of view.
  • To be positive. To see what you already have instead of what’s missing.
  • Gratitude is some form of strengths.
  • Gratitude is difficult. And some people don’t know how to express it.

Exactly, I answered.

And today, we have to learn it. We just have to learn gratitude to be happier. Consumption will not make the world happier. But gratitude can do it.

Imagine a situation when you put this question about gratitude in front of the eyes of team members or a family or a teenager who suffers from depression. It can help to change the perspective for a better one. It can help to turn the face to the sun! But not only.

Gratitude helps to understand better the resources that we have within and around us.

It’s a deep thought, isn’t it?
