5 things to appreciate as an entrepreneur this Thanksgiving

It’s almost that time of year again  – a time to get together with our nearest and dearest, eat delicious food, take time out from work, and above all, reflect on the things we’re truly grateful for.

Thanksgiving is the perfect time to show gratification for the things that matter most in life – and rightly so, studies have demonstrated that gratitude is great for our health and our happiness!

As an entrepreneur, with frantic schedules and heavy workloads, gratitude is something that’s often not practiced as much as it should be! So while you celebrate Thanksgiving this year, consider these 5 important things to be grateful for as an entrepreneur…

1. Having a sense of purpose

Although entrepreneurship comes with plenty of challenges, it’s also a real gift to be able to wake up every day and do something you’re genuinely passionate about. Our purpose is often what keeps us motivated and fills us with drive and satisfaction.

2. Building something from scratch

Being caught in the whirlwind of business can often distract you from reflecting on how far you’ve come on your journey! You’re embarking on so many new things as an entrepreneur, often starting with nothing but an idea. No matter how small your steps are, progress is happening every day. It’s important to recognize and reflect on where you started and where you are today.

3. Your amazing team

One of the best things about being an entrepreneur is being able to choose and build your own awesome team. Hand-picking those people that share your vision and are able to passionately represent your company. It’s important to show thanks – not just at Thanksgiving, but throughout the year – to the people who make the dream work!

4. A close support network

Your support network goes beyond your employees. On your toughest days, and indeed those longer periods of difficulty, your family and friends are often the ones to turn to for encouragement and inspiration. It’s usually our family & friends who help to define and drive our goals, and keep us on track to achieving them.

5. Helping your customers

Depending on what it is your business does, it’s likely that your vision is to help people in one way or another, through your services or products – supporting both the people who use your products as well as the wider community around you. This is one of the unique advantages of being an entrepreneur and both an opportunity to be thankful for and an achievement to be proud of.

Wishing you all a happy thanksgiving

Although entrepreneurship can bring about some of the most testing challenges you’ll encounter in your lifetime, the pros and highs of your wins and incredible opportunities that come with them will make these tough times worthwhile in the end. Ultimately, there is so much to be grateful for as an entrepreneur!
