Actively express thankfulness.
According to one study, couples that expressed gratitude in their interactions with each other resulted in increases in relationship connection and satisfaction the next day--both for the person expressing thankfulness and (no big surprise) for the person receiving it. (In fact, the authors of the study said gratitude was like a "booster shot" for relationships.)
Of course the same is true at work. Express gratitude for employee's hard work and you both feel better about yourselves.
Another easy method is to write down a few things you are grateful for every night. One study showed people who wrote down 5 things they were thankful for once a week were 25 percent happier after ten weeks; in effect they dramatically increased their happiness set-point.
Happy people focus on what they have, not on what they don't have. It's motivating to want more in your career, relationships, bank account, etc. but thinking about what you already have, and expressing gratitude for it, will make you a lot happier.
And will remind you that even if you still have huge dreams you have already accomplished a lot--and should feel genuinely proud.

The Connect Global Team was able to provide 3 new concrete floors for families in San Lorenzo, Honduras.
Dirt floors are very common in many parts of the world. In Honduras, many homes have very simple walls and a roof, but many of the homes are lacking a very basic, important element— a concrete floor.
En 2015, Connect Global lanzó una iniciativa en Honduras que llamamos Comunidad Conectada. Como parte de nuestro continuo apoyo e inversión en la Comunidad de La Ceiba, Honduras, nuestro equipo proporcionó una capacitación de 2 días para varios miembros del departamento de policía local. Desde entonces, también nos hemos comprometido con los departamentos de bomberos de La Ceiba y El Porvenir para proporcionar trajes contra incendios, equipos médicos y otro tipo de apoyo relacionado con el trabajo.
