It is that time of year where we all stop and reflect. What are you thankful for? Here are 3 tips that help me reflect and shower myself in gratitude during this time of year.

  1. Respect The Struggle- I would like you to be thankful for the challenges you face, the struggles that you have endured, the obstacles that have been put in your way, and the sadness you have felt. It is easy to give thanks for the good things in life especially when those things have come to us easily. But being truly thankful is being grateful for what you have because of the struggle, heartache, and pain that you endured and were then rewarded for your persistence, dedication, faith, trust, and hard work.entrepreneurship struggles
  2. Respect Your Bravery- Do you ever tell people you're an entrepreneur, and they get that far-off dreamy look on their face? ("Wow, I wish I could do that," they sigh.) You know that it's a ton of hard work to launch and grow your own business, but you've got to pat yourself on the back for just a moment and realize that you were that person once, too. You didn't believe it was possible, and now you're doing the impossible. You are incredibly brave!
  3. Respect Your Boundaries- There is no work life balance, but we are mastering/mastered the work life integration. Setting boundaries with clients and how you want your business to grow is a freedom we did not have when working for someone else. Kudos to you for earning that!

The word that jumps off this page is, R-E-S-P-E-C-T! You are amazing, awesome, bold, and vibrant. Always remember to respect your mind, body and soul. Way to make the world a better place and set a great example by chasing your entrepreneurial dreams.
