What Are You Thankful For?

As we celebrated Thanksgiving this weekend, I reflected a lot on the things I am thankful for.  Personally, I am thankful for everything that I have: life, health, family, and friends.  These are things that I sometimes unknowingly take for granted.  In addition to all of those things, I am also thankful for all of you who have been reading and subscribing to my blog.  It’s a great feeling knowing that I am creating value through my blogs and helping people the way I originally intended to.  But anyway, the reason I wanted to blog about being thankful is because I believe that as a leader, it’s important to be thankful for several reasons and be able to communicate that to the people that surround you.  Here are some of the things that you should be thankful for as a leader:

Your Employees

While there may be disagreements among you, you have every reason to be thankful for your employees.  Your employees are the people who trust you to lead them, and while you may not agree on everything, they still accept the fact that you are the leader.  At the end of the day, it’s your job to produce the results, and they’re the people there to help you achieve those results.

Your Growth

As a leader, you have a unique opportunity to not only play an integral role in your organization’s success, but you are also allowed the opportunity to learn about yourself as a person.  Through your actions as a leader, you learn a lot about yourself and those that you lead.  The leadership lessons that you take away from your experience are absolutely unforgettable, so enjoy every moment.

Your Opportunity to Lead

You have the chance to make a positive impact on your organization, as well as your employees.  This is not an opportunity that everyone gets.  You get the chance to impact and inspire others and bring out the best in them.  You play a vital role in helping your employees become the greatest version of themselves.  This is a golden opportunity that should not be taken for granted.
