Rachel & Shane Krider’s second episode of their personal development podcast is all about gratitude. Below is a snippet of the podcast where Shane discusses the final step of creating a culture of gratitude.
3. Encourage others to share their gratitude.
Now, this could come off the wrong way. I’m not talking about putting a guilt trip on them. I’m not even talking about telling them to do it. I’m definitely not talking about telling them to do it.
One way to encourage others to share their gratitude is just to be the demonstration of it yourself. Another way to encourage other people do is to point out something someone else has done really well. For example, you could say “hey Rach, did you notice what a great job Joe did on such-and-such?” Rach will probably be like “yeah, I did, I did notice that!” This could prompt Rach to reach out to Joe herself about it, or maybe she’ll be the first to point it out next time.
Subtlety works the best.
There can be really negative people that decide that they’re gonna be the gratitude police. You don’t want to be the gratitude police. You don’t want to be the gratitude enforcer. That kind of takes the positive benefits away from gratitude.
You know, it’s like Gandhi says, “be the change you want to see in the world.” and you know what, let everybody else get in where they’re going to fit in. But in your bubble of reality, it’ll be very difficult for people to not demonstrate some of this stuff.
