Classroom-2-Boardroom: When gratitude speaks, the universe listens.
4-minute read: An attitude of gratitude is a recipe for a higher altitude.
Hi friends 👋🏾
Happy Wednesday ✨
Welcome to Issue 11 of Classroom-2-Boardroom. This is a 3-minute read, no more no less. 👌🏾
This week, we’re exploring an often-forgotten yet phenomenal experience- gracias! 🙏🏾
Last week, I pitched Dot at the annual Startup Lehigh Valley pitch competition and lo and behold, WE won three cash awards. 🚀
I know what you’re thinking…Dulra stop flexing…we saw your LinkedIn. 💁🏾♂️
Here’s the catch though. 👇🏾
When I received the first award, the host asked me…”How do you feel? Are you excited or sad?”
👉🏾My response: “I’m grateful” 🎯 (#mic drop!)
The point here though is that I didn’t know what was coming next for sure. 🤷🏾♀️
It could have been that I was only going to win one award that night. 💁🏾♂️
Expressing gratitude for what I had just won was my way of letting the universe know that I was content with my haves, but also ready for my haves not.
The rest, they say, is history. 🔥🔥
As the night became darker, we shone even brighter✨.
We won two other awards leaving the event with three cash prizes, in one night. 💯🚀
👉🏾So here’s the kicker, as we go from classroom-2-boardroom or from zero to one, it’s easy to get carried away by what’s not working 😞 and forget what’s working.
We can be so focused on going from 0 to 1 and we forget to be grateful for what brought us from 0 to 0.5. 😃
We so badly want to connect the dots ahead but the reality is that you can only connect the dots by looking backward- and gratitude helps you do just that.👌🏾
Gratitude sends a message to the universe that you’re appreciative of what you have and ready to receive what you don’t. 😇
Here are a couple of things I’ve learned in my journey going from classroom-2-boardroom.👇🏾👇🏾
The universe believes gratitude is from a place of abundance. 🎯
And because like, they say, attracts like, your gratitude is a pre-cursor to “more”
When you are grateful, you are sending a message to the universe that you are happy with what you have and that you are ready for more.
It signifies an understanding that we already possess abundance, and this sense of abundance is the magnetic pull that attracts more positivity into our lives.
Gratitude is your secret frequency, your direct line to the cosmos. 🎯
And when gratitude speaks, the universe listens. 💯
Gratitude helps you trade your expectations for appreciation 🙏🏾 , convert your worries to wishes 😇, and replace your doubts with dreams 🚀.
Gratitude is not merely a personal reflection; it's a cosmic exchange.
It's a message we convey to the universe, expressing our deep appreciation for what we have, and our readiness to receive even more. 🎯
When we’re grateful, we create a resonance with the cosmos, a connection that echoes back with abundance.✨✨
Be grateful for your haves and haves not- and your haves not will soon become your haves. 💯 🚀
The open secret to having more is not asking for more. It’s being grateful for what we already have. 👌🏾
Gratitude, therefore, is our quiet acknowledgment of the vast potential that lies within the present. 🎯
It's the catalyst that propels us forward, not by wanting more but by aligning us with the flow of prosperity and opportunity. 🔥🔥
It's a powerful emitter, resonating with positive energy and, in return, magnetizing similar energy back to us. ✨🕺🏾
An attitude of gratitude is a recipe for a higher altitude. 🤌🏾
Every now and then, I get the popular question “How…❓”
Going from classroom to boardroom starts with being grateful for the opportunity to be in the classroom. 🙏🏾
Same way, going from zero to one starts with appreciating the days of being at zero. 👌🏾
As you navigate going from zero to one, I employ you to be a living gratitude.
Sleep with gratitude and wake up with even more gratitude. 💯
Greet your day with gratitude and experience the ups and downs with gratitude. 🎯
It won’t be easy, for sure. But an attitude of gratitude elevates you to another level.
Personal recommendation on gratitude 😊
Listen to this song: It says “Thank you for joy, thank you for pain. It’s a beautiful day.”
Check out the book: “The Secret” by Rhonda Bryne.
You’re welcome- thank me later. 😇
Lastly, here’s our quote of the week. 👇🏾
Gratitude helps you trade your expectations for appreciation, convert your worries to wishes, and replace your doubts with dreams.
Until next time,
Don’t Forget to be Awesome,
