With just one gesture, you can ensure wonderful trips no matter where you’re going, every time you travel.
Before any departure, pack some “Thank You” cards. You don’t need to be a traveling popup Papyrus store; but a few will guarantee great travels. (Shout-out to the people of Papyrus – love your stuff!)
When you pack with gratitude, you are sending feelings of gratitude ahead of you, which will come back to you as circumstances you experience that you will feel grateful for. When you’re on a long flight or one that is potentially stressful or turbulent, you may have a flight attendant who goes above and beyond to ensure your comfort and happiness. Learn their name, write them a card before you deplane telling them what they did to make your flight wonderful – and you’ll make their day. If you’re a business traveler or people in your company travel frequently, leave your business card in the envelope. You never know who you’ll meet again along the way. Plus, the next time your company requests your input for new ideas, you can share this practice with them. Being known worldwide as a company who puts its people and gratitude first can only help productivity!
When you pack with gratitude, you are expecting to have circumstances to be grateful for. How many times have you been on a cruise or had an extended stay at a hotel where the staff was just fantastic? You had every intention of writing to thank them when you got home but life happened and you just forgot. Rather than forgetting or leaving a note on the little hotel notepad, leaving a handwritten card expressing your gratitude will certainly make it home with them and will keep them inspired to keep doing a great job.
This life of yours is 100% your responsibility – make it great. When you make your life great, you experience infinite circumstances to be grateful for! The ultimate way to travel and the ultimate way to live, is with gratitude!
The time for happiness is NOW.
The time for joy is ALWAYS.
The time for you to create your ultimate life, has come. Join me! We’ll do it TOGETHER!
