Inspiring Speaker and Sales Expert Tina Meitl on Differences Between Thanks and Gratitude

Author, Inspiring Motivational Speaker and Sales Superstar Tina Meitl points out that gratitude and thankfulness are often considered to be synonymous yet there are major differences that once understood can lead to a richer life experience.

OBERLIN, KS – January 12, 2017 – Tina Meitl, Sales Superstar, Inspirational Speaker and co-author of the best-selling book, Success Manifesto with Brian Tracy has posted a new blog on her website entitled, “The Gift of True Gratitude.” Ms. Meitl continues the gift-giving season with her first blog of the New Year.

tinameitlMeitl writes, “Happy New Year to all! I am so grateful to be able to express myself in this exciting New Year of 2017.” She continues adding, “And I mean I am truly filled with gratitude, which is different than merely being thankful.”

Meitl expounds, “Gratitude is often confused as being synonymous with thankfulness. I would like to point out the differences.”

According to Meitl, “We say “thank you” many times during the day when people show us kindness and respect. Someone lets us into the flow of traffic; we wave our hand and say, “thank you.” Expressing thanks is easy for most people.” She adds, “We thank the cashier at the supermarket, the teller at the bank, the person who opens the door for us as we enter a store.”

“Gratitude is different,” Meitl says. We’ve heard of making a “gratitude list” on a daily basis. Gratitude is acknowledging that what you have is exactly what you need.”
