The Gratitude Power Workbook: Transform Fear into Courage, Anger into Forgiveness, Isolation into Belonging is a pretty good book. It talks about how being grateful can make you happier and can even improve your business.
Everyone wants to be happy and you probably know someone is almost always happy. If you check with them you will most likely find out(if you don’t already know) that they are grateful people.
They find beauty everywhere and are thankful for just about everything they have and anything you do for them.
The authors of this workbook says that just about everyone can train themselves to be grateful and that they will become happier if they do.
As for improving your business, customers do tend to prefer to do business with upbeat, happy people. And they also like to be thanked. Knowing that they (and thier business) are appreciated makes them much more likely to come back and do business with you again. So remember to thank them!
This book contains lots of advice and activities for improving your gratitude. It has pages for makeing notes too as you go through the excercises.
