Your 'Gratitude Attitude' Can Shape
Voice-Over Success. So Be Thankful!
By Bobbin Beam
Gratitude, by definition:
Also, I found an intriguing description of gratitude in Wikipedia. Gratitude can be viewed as emotion. And as a motivator of behavior, there is a suggestion that people who are more grateful have higher levels of well-being:
At the web site, Abundance-and-Happiness.com, an article on the topic of gratitude states how sincere gratefulness works from a strictly scientific perspective:
SEEK POSITIVE VIBES
I agree. I find I am gravitated to people who seem to have what I call ďpositive vibes.Ē
And I do believe that the human mind follows in the directions of its thoughts.
That is in an incredibly empowering truth, which has everything to do with gratitude.
YOUR VOICE-OVER DESIRE
Now, some may wonder, what in the heck does this have to do with voice-over work? In my opinion, absolutely everything!
Do you have a desired outcome in mind when you create your business, strategic or marketing plan for your voice-over business?
If so, be grateful for your vision and belief in your abilities.
Do you have any blessings to be counted today? A loving family? How about a great audition? Are you healthy? Had a good meal? Seen a gorgeous sunset? You get the idea.
CHANGE YOUR VIEW
Now, are there any obstacles in your career path you can view in a new light?
How about ways you can optimize your business by obtaining voice-over coaching that will keep you current with new trends?
By following through with the direction of your thoughts, youíll be happy to reinvent your value proposition to the marketplace.
NOTE YOUR THOUGHTS
Perhaps you can begin a routine of journaling what you are thankful for, or by posting affirmative quotes or words in your workspace or in the studio.
I have all sorts of self-talk messages posted around my office and in my studio.
Try a weekly assessment of your ďgratitude attitude."
BE THANKFUL FOR YOU
Donít forget to thank your clients!
And donít expect too much too soon. Slow and steady wins the race, so donít give up.
And please donít compare yourself to anyone else. Be thankful for the one and only you on this planet!
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
