GRATITUDE SERIES: YEAR ONE
MINDSHIFT NINJA Thanks You!
By Ayla Khosroshahi
MINDSHIFT NINJA is one.
Our personal and professional experiences have paved the way for this moment. We have upgraded our training to empower our mandate and our partnership has been many years coming. However, this is our first official year as “MINDSHIFT NINJA” — and we are ready to celebrate!
We thought a lot about what it meant to us to celebrate this occasion. We decided that two important things must happen — and both have to do with gratitude!
- We must acknowledge the people whose work in the world has inspired us, challenged us, and made us curious for more.
- We must acknowledge the people on the ground who supported us, invested in us, and trusted us during our first year.
This resulted in two other things: a Gratitude Series via social media (for #1) and a Gratitude Party (for #2).
While gratitude is a daily practice, it never hurts to make it intentional and public. We hope this series sparks new ideas, deepens conversations, and inspires more gratitude work. We believe acknowledging these moments in life makes us better people and makes for better companies. After all, the brain is a social organ, and connection builds understanding and community.
Gratitude Series — #MINDSHIFTNINJATHANKSYOU
This gratitude series is about acknowledgement. It’s about noticing and saying thank-you to the people who choose courage, peace, inclusion, and love, and thus help us to do the same.
From October 10 to November 24 we will be posting two “you inspire us because…” posts a week, on our socials. We have whittled down our list to 14 people. This wasn’t an easy task. But we asked ourselves: why do these individuals inspire us, how do they inspire us, and what effect have they had on shaping our thinking.
We want to say thank you for helping us be brave, generous, and encouraging us to continuously learning.
These are the people we will be thanking in the next seven weeks, follow along to find out why.
- Week of Oct 10: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau + Brené Brown
- Week of Oct 17: Michael “Mike” Babcock + Elizabeth “Liz” Gilbert
- Week of Oct 24: Gordon “Gord” Downie + Alicia Keys
