21 EPIC Quotes on Gratitude!


By: Martin Grunburg

Our Goal Achievement Series “G.R.O.W.I.N.G.” continues. We’ve already reviewed the importance of 1) Being On Your Toes (that aggressive, confident and positive mindset) and, 2) Always Be Growing (which is the general theme behind goal-setting ; ). We’ll continue exploring each letter of our GROWING acronym (in no particular order) in the weeks ahead — running through 7 essential mindsets that foster growth and goal achievement!

I’ve written two posts already on this week’s topic, GRATITUDE. (Both were published right before the end of 2016, not coincidentally around Thanksgiving.) They were, respectively: Gratitude is the Game-Changer, and More on Gratitude: 11 Ways Gratitude is the Game-Changer (please be sure to read these first!).

To round out our gratitude series of posts, I figured we could use some brilliant and powerful quotes on the matter to make you ponder, and then ponder some more!

BTW: Here is where YOU say, “I already know all this… I know gratitude is important!”

Now, knowing you might think this, I’m going to bribe you with a really cool and free Gratitude Guide, Tool/Template.


Because I’m so grateful for you.

(Ha ha, you didn’t think I’d let you get away without slipping that one in?)

Seriously, I’ve created a really neat and FREE Gratitude Guide; it’s a PDF that includes a cool 8 -week tracker!

Seems to me, we can all use a “fine-tuning” of our minds from time to time — some of us more than others. So, please reference this gratitude guide; it also includes these EPIC 21 quotes on gratitude too!

Until next week… always grateful!
