It may be a little saccharine but some of the most interesting Power Players keep a gratitude diary. It’s a daily reminder of all the good stuff. They write down one thing a day for which they should be grateful.
Why? When success becomes a way of life, it’s easy to forget just how good you’ve got it. That’s why Power Players don’t tempt fate by becoming complacent (and arrogant) about good fortune.
Sure, Power Players make their own luck but they also know that if they forget to acknowledge how much they’ve got, it can quickly go away. Be grateful. Do it every day. Don’t get lazy about seeing all the good things in your life because Power Players never do.
Be grateful. It will serve you well and will stop you from falling into the smug trap.
