Good evening, everyone. We are the gratitude, girls, the gratitude! Girls are in the house. Hello, Laurie! How are you. Hey, Kathryn?
Let’s start with. I’m so glad and grateful to be here. That’s first and foremost for those of you who are watching for the first time we’ll introduce ourselves. My name is Kathryn Asaro Mayers and am affectionately known as Ra Ra’s in the house broadcasting to live tonight from lovely Niagara on the Lake Ontario, Canada and I’m here with my awesome partner, Laurie, who’s taking care of the tech right now. Laurie, you have a minute to talk while you’re doing that.
Yes, and I am Laurie Delk, Radecki and I am outside of Nashville, Tennessee
We’re gonna talk to you about gratitude because this is what we are. What we do. What we embody. We embody gratitude, and lately we’ve been touching on the subject. This is a free coaching and training call that we do. Every week we’re going to talk to you about teams because we know about that. We we built teams. We are a team. Laurie and I are a team, and that could be as far as your team goes. And that’s a huge thing for us.
We are global team. And then amongst that team we have other team members, and some people would say, like family team family members depends on how close your team is If it’s new. Maybe it doesn’t feel like a family yet maybe it does. So we’re going to talk to you about today is, how do weave gratitude that’s in your heart That’s in your actions into your business of team building.
It’s really important to let people in your know how you feel, and if you’re grateful for them and you tell them
they’ll be extremely happy, and if you neglect to tell them. they may not know, because you didn’t say anything.
So today we’ll talk a little bit about that. So, Laurie. Let’s let’s talk about like I’m not shy to say i’m grateful. It’s very easy and natural for me to be communicative. My love language is probably communication for me. It would be unnatural not to say how I feel, and I don’t mean just say how I feel, no matter what, but to express myself. So how do you feel about telling your team, our team, and all the other people in our lives that you’re grateful for them?
Yeah, I think it. I think it’s hugely important, right? I mean one. Your team, If you’re building a network marketing business, you’re getting a check right because of your team. So if you’re grateful for that money, then you should be grateful for the team right because you don’t get that money without you right. There’s like they say there’s no I in team, right? So they are helping you. Whether they came on. And they’re bringing in other referrals. They’re bringing on other customers. They’re even just spending their own money each month.
They’re helping you get a check right and not to mention just being grateful for that team camaraderie like like Kathryn and I met in network marketing right because of network marketing. And so and she’s one of my very bestest, closest friends in the world.
And so you know all and realistically, almost all my friends that I have nowadays are from. Of course I’ve been in network marketing for over 30 years, too. But that’s it. So like that camaraderie that you get from your team, and with your team and your business partners, and the friendships that you create. I mean you just You can’t put a price on that.
No, you right, and you’re my bestest friend, because we thank you for saying that, and you are mine. We talk to each other about everything, so think about. If you talk to your team and you hear what they have to say, and you listen to them and you put them first. I know this is gonna sound difficult, but put your team first. It’s not about me how I feel me! What’s happening to me? Me? What kind of day am I having? It’s really not when you’re leading a team, it’s about your team. It’s giving your team the same space that someone gave you when you were starting and developing.
So if you put others first, if you’re grateful for them. If you share how you feel if you listen to how they feel you actually have a dialogue. and when you have a dialogue you get to hear what’s going on, do you ever watch someone totally clam up and not say anything? It’s a little bit hard to really work with that. So when you have a good team, you don’t have to be shy to say. You know what’s happening. I’m here. I’m here to listen.
I’m grateful for you, whatever kind of day you’re having. Let’s talk about it.
Think about that person that could make such a huge difference. Imagine if Laurie and I didn’t touch hands on the way down the staircase didn’t look at each other, and didn’t say anything or what we said to each other. We wouldn’t be here today if we didn’t reach out in kindness to one another that would have been catastrophic in my life not to have you in my life, and what we do together. That moment changed everything for us.
When you’re building a team you change the lives of people, and it’s about them. It’s really not about us as hard as that may seem to do
right. Yeah. And and and think about that, too, I think like what’s what it what’s in it for me. FM: right? What’s in it for me? Radio station right? And so. But think about that for them like that’s it. They want to know what’s in it for them.
And so and when you are a leader of a team, you need to be looking at what’s in it for your team doing things for your team, you know, for me. With my team I am constantly doing all different things. I’m sending my team gifts, i’m sending. You know I have a spinner thing, and we do contest all the time in my team, and I offer different things that I win the different things that I buy, and different things that I do and like. This month. This last month I sent out 3 of our gratitude girls journals to different team members so they could learn how to do the gratitude in their lives. And if you teach that to people and they really get that then they are going to be so much better team member, anyway, because they are attracting more things in their life to be grateful and thankful for.
And so the more that you focus on that writing that 3 to 5 things down, specific and in detail every day. What happened that day. then? God, the universe, whatever brings more things to you for you to be grateful and thankful for each and every day. So if you want your team to grow and you want your team to do better then you teach them this gratitude concept.
SHe said so many wonderful things there, and one of the things I want to say is, you teach your team. You don’t do it for them. You teach them how to do it. If you’re a leader and you’re doing it for your team, you’re not growing your team If your team is learning, do you want to give someone a fish or teach them how to fish? If you teach them how to make their calls, place their sales, speak to their prospects, teach them how to set up a call a 3 way, call, hop on a webinar, teach them how to do it.
don’t mother them to do it. don’t be their wife or their husband. but teach them what to do, and teach them what Laurie just said, how grateful you are! Set the example, because if you find yourself in your team being the one that’s doing all the picking up the loose ends, Laurie. We don’t do this for our team.
We can still be the leadership, the foundation we do for ourselves, and we show and share by example.
We don’t do those little things that don’t really help someone? What will help someone? As if they understand on a bad day where to find the gratitude? Where to write down those 3 things in detail, what they’re grateful and thankful for, to read it at night, and then read it the next morning because when you have a bad day. If you pick up your gratitude Journal, you tell me how you feel. Can you still have a bad day?
You just saved yourself a whole lot of time sitting in some uncomfortable space.
When you read we read it in cards, we read it in journals. We read our book, we write in our book. This saves us all that time, just in case we were thinking of having that kind of day. So if your team were to write 3 things they were grateful and thankful for in our journal, or we’d love it in our journal right anywhere.
But if you did do that and that took 15 min a day.
You know. How long does it task? Take 20 min. 30 min. You want to do the task for 40 min. It’s up to you. It depends on how many things you want to do when you go back, and you reflect on how you spent your time and if it lifts you up then it was probably a good investment in time.
Right? Yes, so absolutely and so. Think about that, and think about the more that you do that you spend that time writing down the things that you’re grateful and thankful for. And then because, like Kathryn, said, those bad days, those bad moments they’re going to come.
Everybody has them. It doesn’t matter what color you are. It doesn’t matter what race you are, it doesn’t matter what financial status you are. It doesn’t matter anything. You’re gonna have some bad days. And when those come, if you reflect back on your Gratitude Journal. During that time it helps you to. It might not fix the situation immediately, but it helps you to lift your spirits because you get back into that vibration, that feeling, that thought of all those wonderful things, and a lot of times we quickly. So you know, we just as humans, we are so quick to forget all the wonderful things in our life, right?
And so when you reread those because you have them wrote down, you have them in black and white, you know. Then it just can quickly bring back to memory. Wow! Maybe my life’s not so bad, after all. Maybe my world isn’t so bad, after all, and maybe it can get better again, and you can lift your own spirits that way.
Hmm. Yeah. Help ourselves first. If you’re in the airplane First you put the oxygen mask on yourself, and then you help others. So keep your spirits lifted right in your gratitude. Journal. 3 things 5 things They start with 3 that you’re grateful and thankful for in detail, and then teach others how to do that without even knowing what business they’re in.
That will help them Just that action all by itself, because you’ll be happier. And if you’re happy, or whatever career path you’re on.
even if you’re not working, and you’re just doing other things art, You’ll be happier because it comes from inside. Laurie. I love this topic. I love this subject, and i’m so grateful that we have our book, and that we get to write in it multiple times. And sometimes, I must admit I do go further than 3, because I get kind of hooked. It is one of those things with a warning. It’s I’ll give you a disclaimer when you start writing about gratitude. You may not want to stop. It feels real good
