Episode 205 – Attitude of Gratitude

Episode Overview

Happy Thanksgiving!!  While we will be focusing on things we are grateful for today, we know that it’s all too easy to slide into a negative outlook and to get stuck in a loop of frustration and cynicism. Today Gina and Susanna talk about the importance of gratefulness in our lives.

Gina talks about how we have three things that we can control – our actions, reactions, and mindset. The attitude of gratitude isn’t just a platitude, it’s the foundation of resilience and creating opportunity after failure or disappointment. Gina also mentions giving yourself props and recognizing the successes that you’ve had each day.

Because it can be easy to slip into a negative headspace, they discuss the idea of having a ‘gratitude buddy’ who can be there to bring you back to a more positive space when you really need it. They also get into the pros and cons of being an empath, keeping a gratitude log, the strength of people who persevere through tragedy, and how sharing your own story and listening to other people’s inspiring stories can help you to shape a new attitude of gratitude. Listen to the end to hear what Gina and Susanna are grateful for.

More About Susanna

After graduating from Cambridge University in Music and Education, Susanna took her first sales role selling advertising space on websites.

She’s always been intrigued by the unfair negative stigma associated with sales and the way that after their initial excitement to work in sales, people will do everything they can to avoid actual prospecting.

With 14 years of experience in recruitment, Susanna challenges this mindset through her successful business sourcing sales professionals into recruitment roles.

Susanna decided to become a Sales Gravy Master Trainer because Sales Gravy’s vision matches her own beliefs and values.

She is committed to providing excellence and dedication to all of her trainees so that they can achieve their goals and succeed in sales.
