To help avoid confusion as to the expectations of the Gratitude Project, I have written this little list of guidelines.
First off, there are no “rules”. This is your project to do with as you feel it works best for you. If you’d like some ideas on how to express your gratitude, I recommend checking out my book, Positivity on Purpose: Intentionally Create More Abundance, Wealth and Happiness. (also available on Kindle).
There are no rules but here are a few recommended practices.
Step 1 – Join the Gratitude Project by registering at http://goldeneaglescoaching.com/gratitude-project-2012/.
Step 2 – Join the Positivity On Purpose Facebook Group by going to http://www.facebook.com/groups/positivityonpurpose/ and clicking Join Group in the upper right.
Step 3 – Participate by posting your gratitude each day. You can post on your own wall or on the Facebook Group. I recommend posting in both locations. Ideally, use the following format so that we can identify your posts as part of the Gratitude Project.
Day 3 Gratitude Project – Today I’m grateful that I can sleep for 10 hours straight when my body says I need to and not have to call to report sick to anyone! Positivity on Purpose.
By typing @positivityonpurpose, Facebook should provide a drop down list of options for you to choose from. Select the one with the shooting star and our group page will be tagged.
Then copy the text and post it on the Positivity on Purpose group page.
Alternatively – if you are not able to be on Facebook regularly, or choose not to participate in that way, please feel free to use a journal or notebook to record your gratitudes. There are a few people that stop in and post several days worth of gratitudes that they have recorded at one time. This works too. Remember, there are no rules.
Step 4 – Share. If you are so inclined, the registration page is the best page to share with those you know to get them involved in the project as well. That page again is, http://goldeneaglescoaching.com/gratitude-project-2012/. There is a Share Bar at the bottom of that page that you can use to share to your Facebook, Twitter, etc… Or just use the direct link.
