Pursuit Guests on Gratitude

“Be curious. Release expectations. Take pleasure in small things and expect good things. Cheerfully engage the moment. Let this become our practice, our mastery, our art... Have a gratitude practice. Write down all the things you learned, accomplished or are thankful for each day. Then, write down what you need to do tomorrow so you can free your mind and relax. Making lists help you relax.” - Brendon Burchard

“When I started learning about gratitude and focusing on gratitude … things in my life just started happening and happening. Every single day, I say the things I appreciate.” - Kimra Luna

“It was eye-opening for me to appreciate my life. I get to make films for a living? How lucky am I?” - Joe Berlinger

“You cannot be grateful and angry at the same time. You can not be grateful and fearful at the same time.” - Tony Robbins

“Gratitude is more powerful than any pill you can pick up at the pharmacy.” - Marie Forleo

“To inventory your success is to practice gratitude. Gratitude in key to our happiness, health and an attitude of abundance. Only when you are grateful for what you have and what you’ve done and all that you’ve accomplish will you be blessed with more.” - Chalene Johnson

“Several years ago, at the encouragement of a friend, I started carrying a gratitude rock in my pocket. It’s really just a small, smooth stone that I picked up from the fish pond behind our house. I carry it with me where ever I go. The idea is simple. Whenever my hand contacts the stone– usually several times a day–I give thanks for whatever is happening at that moment, whether good or bad.” - Michael Hyatt

“I’m often asked what fuels me, and 80 percent of the time my answer is gratitude. Gratitude is what has gotten me through my toughest moments in business (yes, there have been some, though I don’t talk about them much). Whenever I have lost a deal to a competitor, or an incredible employee, or millions of dollars in revenue because a state changed its shipping laws and won’t let me sell there (damn you, Texas!), I default to gratitude. Because I recognize that even if I had invested in Uber, and Woody Johnson decided it was time and I did buy the Jets tomorrow, none of it would matter to me at all if the next day I got a call that someone I love was sick or had died. Keeping that perspective allows me to handle anything and everything.” - Gary Vaynerchuk

“This is something my wife and I do at least once a month, not just once a year — and we do it with the whole family no matter their age! Gratitude On Demand. This is a drill where our family meets and we each share 3 rounds of all the things we have to be grateful for one at a time. No one is interrupted, there is not input from others and we just listen. Each round the person sharing goes a little deeper on those things they have that they are grateful. [This exercise] is magical, causing everyone to come together as a team, getting them focused on the positive, listening to what each family member is grateful for, and often times revealing what others may have been taking for ‘grant-ed’.” - Grant Cardone

“[Every day] I try to think of everyone in my life I’m grateful for. Then I try to think of more people. Then more. Its hard. Forgiving – I picture everyone who has done me wrong. I visualize gratefulness for them (but not pity).” - James Altucher

“If you start every day by diving within, you’re going to notice a big shift in what you see around you — I promise. I know, because I have a [gratitude meditation] that I do first thing every morning and it makes a huge difference in my day.” - Natalie MacNeil

Cultivating gratitude is a very important aspect of a happy life. It’s very helpful to find cues as part of your everyday life to remind you to think about all the things you have to be grateful for.” - Gretchen Rubin
