It’s been said that gratitude unlocks the fullness of life, and in this episode, James and Phoebe discuss how this has affected the both of them personally. They also provide examples of random acts that you can do to add more meaning to your own life, and others, today. To James, gratitude is a state of being and a feeling, and not just a word or concept to be memorized. He shares that gratitude is an actual frequency you can resonate on.
This frequency unlocks more in our lives, which is backwards to what we’ve been taught.
Many of us don’t realize just how lucky we are, especially if we’re online entrepreneurs, as the technology that is available now wasn’t 10 or 15 years ago.
Nothing motivates him more than the fact that he has the ability to help others. Unfortunately, most people starting a business are so focused on having a survival mindset that other people aren’t a priority.
When performing a random act of kindness, the big fallacy is that it has to be a big financial commitment. However, no matter where you’re at in your life or your business, you always have something that you can give.
One of Phoebe’s mantras is “the more I give, the more I grow.” She says that society isn’t use to accepting help from others though.
Some random acts of kindness that you can do today are:
- Pay for someone’s groceries
- Leave big tips at bars and restaurants
- Help someone load parcels into their car
- Give a gift to someone who has helped you on your journey
- Sent a thank you note (in writing)
- Give a simple smile, or ask how someone is doing
- Spend time with people in a nursing home or hospital
- Give compliments to others
- “Adopt a family” or donate to charity
What we can do and create gives us such an extraordinary life, and when we can step into gratitude it’s just going to continue to come back to us, as well as make a ripple effect in the lives of others.
It really comes back to helping just one person! How can you lighten their day?
