This is the announcement post for the 14-Day Gratitude Challenge held in Aug 2013, where we practice gratitude for 14 days. The challenge is now over but you can do the tasks in your own time. Visit the overview page for all the challenge tasks.
Do you practise gratitude in your life?
Do you love giving gratitude to others?
Would you like to cultivate the habit of gratitude?
If you answered yes to any of the questions, then the upcoming 14-day Gratitude Challenge is just for you!
Introducing: 14-Day Gratitude Challenge!
Come 15 Aug, I’ll be conducting a 14-day gratitude challenge, where participants from around the world will practice gratitude for 14 days till the end of the month (28 Aug, to be precise). Every day, I will post a task of gratitude which you have to complete within the day itself. The task can range from giving thanks to your food, to transforming an ungrateful thought, to showing your appreciation to someone.
At the end of the day, you are to report back to the site to share your results for the day itself and to join other participants in their discussions.
The challenge will end on 28 Aug, where you reflect on your journey of gratitude in the past 14 days as well as create your plan on how to continue practise gratitude moving forward.
This will be an extremely simple yet exciting challenge which will permanently impact your life as well as others’ lives around you. Given that it’s been almost eight months since I ran any challenge (the last one was the 2013 Countdown Challenge), I can’t wait to start this with all of you! :D
