Are you THANKFUL or THINKFUL?

are you thankful or thinkfulIn this post title, I asked the question “Are you thankful or thinkful?” I purpose they are connected and being thankful isn’t just something you do once or twice a year on a holiday, but something you should do every day.

Thinkful

When you think about someone or something beside yourself

Thankful

When you are thankful for something you have received or others have done for you

Do you see the connection? In both scenarios, you are thinking and reflecting upon others’ goodness verses your own.

7 Ways to Be More Thinkful Year Round

T Take the time to reflect on what you are thankful for

H Help others to succeed

I Inquire on how others are doing and what you can do to help them

N Never do something that hurts someone else

K Keep your integrity by always being honest

F Find new ways to contribute to the community

U Understand you don’t have to be right all the time

L Love others unconditionally

Of course, there are many ways you can define “thankful” or “thinkful.” You might have noticed “thinkful” isn’t even a real word, but one I made up. That is ok with me and I hope it is ok with you. (Read Wikipedia’s definition of Thankfulness. It is quite interesting.)

One of my goals has always been to help others succeed, and being thinkful is just one way that I can make sure what I am doing in my life and work aligns with the goal.

One way I do this is to continually be watching out for opportunities to support those in my circle of influence. And when I say circle of influence, I am not referring to the big wig down the street, the who’s who of my industry, but those that are experts in their fields. How popular they are or how much influence or affluence they have doesn’t matter to me.

I have countless success stories I could share relating to this. I will share just one today:

I was on Facebook and a major player in the social media industry made a simple post that he would like to be connected with someone doing something unique on a specific social media platform. I commented on the post with a few words “Jane Doe does a series on this topic.” He immediately reached out to her privately and scheduled her for his series. From that interview she got the opportunity to present at an international conference on the topic, multiple other conferences and now is a expert contributor on a blog relating to this topic. (Names and networks have been removed for anonymity.)

Every time she sees me she thanks me profusely. The fact is her success is my success. It thrills me to no end to know that my paying attention and making one simple comment made such a difference in her life and business.

So I ask you, “What are you doing to be thinkful in you business?” And how has it been working for you. Have you been able to help others succeed in their business? Share below.

I challenge you to start looking out for others online and offline. Help others succeed and you can enjoy their success also!
