These journal writing prompts will help you write your way to success in business by changing your mindset and attracting things to be grateful for.
Thanksgiving may be a seasonal tradition, but with journal prompts for gratitude, you’ll be encouraged to name and reflect on all things that deserve your utmost appreciation.
And why not be grateful?
Studies have shown that when we choose to focus on the good things and be thankful, our “happiness hormones” get activated, our blood pressure drops, and our heart rate decreases.
This speaks volumes on how we can properly function as entrepreneurs.
Sometimes, in our haste to get things done and in the midst of business difficulties, we often forget what truly matters—being grateful for even the littlest things.
So instead of getting overwhelmed by business matters, I recommend that you start and end your day writing down your thoughts with the aid of these gratitude prompts.
Here’s a list of 100+ journal prompts that will help you attract more positive things into your business than what you’re already thankful for.
