In a blog post related to the power of gratitude adapted from his book, The Earned Life, the renowned leadership coach and bestselling author Marshall Goldsmith explores how gratitude can be a tool for enabling change. One exercise he describes is a chance to express gratitude for who you have become.
As countries welcome refugees from war-torn Ukraine, Marshall Goldsmith explores how to use gratitude as a tool for moving ahead with positivity.
Recently, a top-level U.S. congressional delegation led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was in Warsaw to express gratitude to Poland for their humanitarian and other support for Ukraine. Pelosi and other U.S. lawmakers met with President Andrzej Duda and Polish lawmakers in Warsaw. The visit followed a weekend visit to Kyiv where they met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, pledging to support his country until it defeats Russia.
Despite uncertainty and terrible devastation in the world, gratitude remains a powerful tool for moving forward in life and understanding how quickly things can change.
In The Earned Life, Goldsmithin uncovers the source of today’s existential crises, including regrets that stem from choices that irrevocably alter our lives, reroute destinies, and haunt our memories. These are particularly timely themes today.
With Goldsmith’s book as a guide, readers can close the gap between what they plan to achieve and what they actually get done—even in a world full of inescapable unfairness and curveballs—and live an earned life that is fulfilling in the long run.
