The Power of Gratitude

Leadership & Inspiration

As I write this blog post, I am over 30,000 feet in the air, heading towards Orlando for a quick lunch meeting with a potential client of ours here at Chop Dawg before nearly immediately flying back to Philadelphia, just in time for my dinner meeting to meet another potential client.

The concept of flying is one of my favorite things. The idea that within a few hours, you can be across the country, across the globe, meeting and collaborating with people you otherwise would never have the chance to meet. Not to mention on a plane, being in an environment that more-often-than-not, you can only focus on your work and/or you. It’s almost a meditative state for me and something most people will complain about, I absolutely love.

This particular flight is no different. I’ve decided to spend my morning while in the air, working on the blog, and wanted to write about a subject not often discussed on the blog but means the world to me. That is the power of gratitude. The concept of being thankful.

The concept of being thankful.

More often than not, I do a very poor job looking back at previous accomplishments and those who have helped grow Chop Dawg to where it is today. It’s a design flaw in my own DNA that I’ve been open about. I’m so focused on the future that sometimes, I am not fully living in the present or worse, taking advantage of the past. The thing is, though, in recent months, I’ve been able to fix this by understanding more about my own goals, my own motivations, what makes me tick. That is the impact that I have been able to make for others, the opportunities that my company has been given, and most importantly of all, the amount of gratitude that I have deep inside to those who have gone above and beyond for me, and how I want to do nothing more than every single day return that favor to everyone that I can.

Gratitude is what fuels me.

Gratitude is what makes me go all in with what I am doing, each and every day.

Gratitude is what makes me thankful for the amazing clients that we have and had in the past at Chop Dawg, for not only giving us the opportunity to work with them and help grow their companies but helping us get to the next level.

Gratitude for all of the potential clients that reach out to us every single day, giving us the opportunity to not only help them and their companies but work with many of them to bring their mobile apps, web apps, wearable apps, websites, user interfaces and everything in-between to life. That without new opportunities, we would become stagnant and stale.

Gratitude for those who have helped us when we have needed it, even without asking. Our friends who also run companies across the globe, our friends who are in the media, our friends who are investors, our friends who are attorneys, accountants, and much more. So many individuals that help guide us in our paths, that go above and beyond, and that for me personally, want nothing more than to return the favor ten fold.

Gratitude for the opportunities that are presented to my company, day in and day out.

I’ve thought about the power of gratitude a lot. It’s amazing to see that this isn’t just an individual phenomenon but a character trait that you will find in countless successful entrepreneurs, executives, creatives.

To me, gratitude is the most powerful piece of fuel that gives our motivations, our belief systems, our day-to-day hustle, meaning, and power.

I challenge all of you who are reading this, no matter if you’re a serial entrepreneur, a successful executive of a major company or even just an aspiring entrepreneur, to take some time, perhaps on your next flight, next car ride, late at night when you’re getting ready for bed, to truly think about what gratitude means to you, what you’re truly thankful for deep down and how you can use to your advantage.

Gratitude gives us that competitive edge, that extra drive, that awareness to stay grounded even while you’re chasing the stars. It’s such an incredible feeling that most overlook but need to be self-aware about if you’re going to succeed, especially in the incredibly competitive business world that we all shoot to thrive in.
