I’ve been told by someone that don’t always take notice for what I’m inherently grateful for. Well, here we go.
I’m thankful for…
- My family. While we’re all a little crazy, I love them. I know this is a default answer for many people, but when I need help, they’re there for me. That I’ll forever appreciate it.
- My friends. While some are a better influence than others, they’re there for me before I need them.
- Working in a fast-paced industry. While it’s good to have a job, I really enjoy working in an industry that changes quickly. CRM is changing to become more customer centric, social media is changing to become more business centric, and community is becoming more relevant. Things change quick and they change usually for the better. This is good and I love being a part of it.
- I love challenge. I like being challenged and having the ability to grow.
- Age of entrepreneurship. I think we’ve reached the age of our industrial revolution where creating solutions is revered as godly. No longer is entrepreneur codename for someone with a lot of unfinished ideas. Anyone can succeed and there are no barriers. If you have a good idea and can execute, you can succeed.
- Creativity. When you want to bring a good idea to market, you need creativity. It takes a little panache and style to attract others to it. No longer are ideas marketed by gimmicks, empty promises or being obnoxious. The free market … public opinion … dictates that companies that demonstrate creativity earn respect. That’s awesome.
- Freedom to change. It’s okay to change. It’s evolution and it’s admired these days. I am grateful for that immensely as I work on myself and become who I want to be.
There are probably more things I’m thankful for, but one thing is clear – it’s not possessions. It’s experiences. I love meeting people and love growing. If I didn’t have an iPhone, my fancy TV, my computers, my awesome bed, I’d still feel complete with the above items and that’s what matters.
What are you thankful for?
