    Why We Are Grateful

    It’s More Than Just Saying Thanks One Day Per Year

    The Thanksgiving holiday is the time of year we’re encouraged to pause and reflect on all we have to be thankful for – to reflect on and appreciate all that is positive in our lives, in others, and in ourselves. Once the day is over, it’s especially important to maintain an attitude of gratitude and not let the sense of gratitude fade. Remember, training a brain to remember the positive requires building a daily habit. At The Trembley Group Real Estate everyone is encouraged to celebrate Thanksgiving every day – to be grateful and happy on a daily basis, not just once a year.

    Life is Good

    Feeling Grateful starts with a simple acknowledgment that life is fundamentally good and rewarding. Such positive thinking is motivating. Waking in the morning and saying, “It’s a great day to be alive,” is a good place to start.  

    Today’s society is constantly encouraging folks to reach for something big and new in hope that it will somehow make them happier – that it fill some fundamental and often contrived need. Society encourages folks to believe that they’ll never be happy and feel satisfied until every physical and material desire is met. An attitude of gratitude helps people focus on what they have rather than on what they lack. And believe it or not, although it may not feel natural at first, this mental state grows stronger and more natural with practice.

    Gratitude is an emotion expressing appreciation for what one has—as opposed to, for instance, a consumer-driven emphasis on what one wants or thinks they need. Tossing off a half-hearted “thanks” doesn’t work. Real gratitude has to come from deep within and it has to come in a meaningful way. Practicing genuine gratitude means focusing on why we are thankful which results in feeling more kind and compassionate toward the world at large. It motivates people to make positive changes in their lives. Exercising an attitude of gratitude can increase well-being, health, and happiness. Being grateful—and more importantly expressing it—is also associated with increased energy, optimism, and empathy.

    Gratitude is a way for people to appreciate what they have instead of always reaching for something new in the hopes it will make them happier, or thinking they can’t feel satisfied until every physical and material desire is met. Gratitude helps people refocus on what they have instead of what they lack. And, although it may feel contrived at first, this mental state grows stronger with use and practice.

    Where focus goes, energy flows. So folks who focus all their time on the negative will only give power to their anger and resentment. But when they focus on the positive, they invite happiness back into their lives. It’s tough at first but practicing gratitude can literally rewire a brain to boost happiness.

    Gratitude Improves Relationships with Co-workers and Friends

    So, why does The Trembley Group Real Estate, the premier real estate company in Myrtle Beach and along the Grand Strand, promote an attitude of gratitude as a way of life?

    The Trembley Group Real Estate is a specialized, one-of-a-kind real estate sales and marketing firm offering a unique buying and selling experience unparalleled to the industry standard. The company’s Real Estate Professionals are hired for their executive power, professional knowledge, and authority. Whether buying or selling, they ensure a real estate experience that is closed quickly, skillfully, and seamlessly.

    When it comes to the company’s workplace, showing gratitude builds stronger relationships and helps get better results on the job. By giving compliments, being willing to help each other, and participating in team meetings, The Trembley Group Real Estate opens communication so that everyone feels comfortable approaching the company you with new projects or to address issues quickly.

    With gratitude, people acknowledge the goodness in their lives. In the process, people usually recognize that the source of that goodness lies at least partially outside themselves. As a result, gratitude also helps people connect to something larger than themselves as individuals — whether to other people, nature, or a higher power.

    From its inception, The Trembley Group Real Estate has had a primary commitment to positively changing the lives of its clients. All sales executives at The Trembley Group are encouraged and trained to have strong relationships with their clients – the sellers and buyers who are the company’s bread and butter. They also encouraged to have strong relationships with our strategic preferred partners – lenders, attorneys and home inspectors – to help close a sale quickly and hassle-free.

    Scott Trembley on Gratitude

    Gratitude has changed my entire life says Scott Trembley, President, and CEO of The Trembley Group Real Estate. “Gratitude is the antidote to all the things that make our business and our personal lives less rich. You can’t be angry and grateful simultaneously. You can’t be fearful and grateful simultaneously. You can’t be grateful and cheat your client or the Real Estate Professional sitting at the next desk. So, gratitude is the antidote to anger, fear, and greed.”

    “Gratitude actually makes business more profitable. The Trembley Group Sales Professionals, support professionals, and I are all more effective – we’ll all be more engaged – when we’re grateful. But the grateful attitude has to be genuine. If greater profit is the only reason we’re preaching it, both the employees and our clients are going to think we’re using them,” says Scott. “They have to recognize we genuinely want the best for them.” They all do and that largely explains The Trembley Group Real Estate’s phenomenal business success and that it’s the number one reviewed company online.

    For Scott Trembley, feeling grateful starts with an acknowledgment that life is fundamentally good and rewarding. Such positive thinking can be motivating and that can be seen in all The Trembley Group Real Estate Professionals. The bountiful emotion that life is abundant makes the Professionals feel grateful for loved ones, animals, mother nature, their spiritual families, and of course and most importantly for Scott as CEO of The Trembley Group, colleagues and clients.

    People feel and express gratitude in many ways. They can apply it to positive past memories and be thankful for their childhoods or past blessings. They can be grateful for the present, not taking business success and good fortune for granted. And they can be grateful for the future which them maintain a hopeful and optimistic attitude. Regardless of the inherent or current level of gratitude, it’s a quality that The Trembley Group Real Estate Professionals cultivate because it leads to further success. And one of the amazing things about gratitude is that its expression becomes contagious.

    What The Trembley Group Real Estate Professionals Think

    Grateful for You Our Clients

    Several of The Trembley Group Real Estate Professionals and some of the company’s strategic business partners were asked what they were most grateful for during the season of thankfulness. Without exception, they all expressed gratitude for the relationships in their lives – relationships with children; family; their Trembley Group colleagues, clients, and support staff; strategic business partners; and the opportunity to make a positive contribution to the lives of their clients.
    John F. Kennedy once said, “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” That means truly espousing gratitude and living lives in a way that reflects it. Gratitude, then, is more than mere words. It is a state of mind, a conscious choice, life’s foundation for positivity. For all of The Trembley Group real estate family, gratitude is part of the company culture and Thanksgiving is a lifestyle, not a one-day celebration.  When it comes to the workplace, showing gratitude builds strong relationships and helps get better results for the clients.

    That relationships are at the top of everyone’s gratitude list is not surprising. Psychologists tell us that relationships with other human beings should be the most important thing in peoples’ lives, but sometimes people get so obsessed with things that they forget how beautiful it is to care and to be cared for. Relationships are the only way.

    When we face difficult times, people need other people for support. No one can take care of everything alone. When the world looks dark and the problem looks big, nothing is more valuable than the support of other people. They give encouragement to keep up the fight, they’re company in the time of trouble, and they are willing to share the burden. The journey will become much easier.

    Grateful For Support

    Brad Emond has been with The Trembley Group Real Estate almost from the beginning. Brad is approachable and always has a smile on his face. Brad has lived and worked around North America and has left a long list of valued relationships in his wake. He doesn’t hesitate to tell you how grateful he is for those relationships. But Brad will also tell you how grateful he is for all the support he gets from the company and beyond.
    He’ll express gratitude for all the people who support him, who push him to succeed, and all who love him. “I always try to thank the folks who ring up my groceries or greet me at the doctor’s office,” he says. “I’m thankful for all of the experiences and connections that have made me who I am today. I’m even grateful for all of the people and experiences that are yet to appear in my life. They all shape who I am and who I am meant to become.”

    Brad is grateful for his success and he’s keenly aware that his success is a direct result of his good relationships with his clients – that without them he would have no success at all. Healthy, productive business relationships are all about giving. In fact, there are no genuine relationships without giving. Brad knows that whether it is giving his time, attention, or just a smile, a genuine relationship is all about giving. He has discovered that there is great joy in giving. “If I’m thinking only about myself, I forget the joy of giving and how life is wonderful when I’m thinking about others and not just myself.” Brad says, “I know that genuine charity is a direct outgrowth of gratitude.”

    “To be an effective Real Estate Professional,” Bra continues, “I know my clients will respect and value my advice if they know that I genuinely care about what’s best for them. We appreciate the people we trust more than anyone else. Their words sink deep into our heart, not just our mind. So the most effective way to make a lasting impression with a client is by building relationships with them. Be their friend and care about them, and they’re more likely to listen and respect your opinions.’

    Grateful for Life Itself

    Brett Branham of the Tide Law Firm, one of The Trembley Group’s Strategic Business Partners, says he grateful for his Trembley Group Real Estate family. But Brett will also tell you that he grateful every morning he wakes up – he’s simply grateful for life itself. “Life moves pretty fast,” says Brett. “I try to stop and look around every now and then. I don’t want to miss it. It’s pretty easy to get swept away in the fast lane and forget to stop and show your appreciation for what you do have. A life well lived is one of gratitude and thankfulness.” Gratitude doesn’t have to be saved for the “big” things in life. The habit of being grateful starts with appreciating every good thing in life and recognizing that there is nothing too small for you to be thankful for.

    Grateful For The Trembley Group Team

    Director of Marketing, Nancy-Paige Robinson says, “I am thankful for the entire Trembley Group Real Estate team. Whether it’s owners and managers like Scott Trembley or Jeremy Jenks, the Vice-President of sales, or maybe it’s the amazing Real Estate Professionals. Perhaps it’s the awesome support staff or the company’s strategic business partners. No one at The Trembley Group works completely alone.” That means every person who works for the company does a vital job. “I am always most grateful for the people who do work that I’m not particularly gifted at doing or don’t have the time to do. Anytime I don’t have to do things like logistics and numbers (fill in whatever you don’t like to do.) is a good day and fills me with gratitude.” Nancy-Paige does an awesome job as Marketing Director but recognizes and appreciates that she couldn’t do it alone – without the support of everyone in the company. Her gratitude shows in acts of kindness and in the way she welcomes new Real Estate Professionals.

    “I’ve been fortunate (and grateful) to work with a number of people at The Trembley Group Real Estate who actively practice gratitude,” Nancy-Paige says. “Being around them makes me feel valued and appreciated for my contribution. I know others feel the same. Often, in our professional lives, saying thank you is about recognizing extra effort. But it’s also nice to hear “thank you” for simply doing a good job.”

    Gratitude is Helping Others and Helping Others Creates Gratitude

    Jill McNeeley, Director of Operations, New-comers Eric Graham and Sally Cormier, and seasoned all-star Bret French are all grateful for a variety of blessings in their lives. Some are thankful for children, their spouse, their pets, their health and for the spiritual center in their life. But they all share Nancy-Paige’s appreciation for The Trembley Group team and the opportunity to work in such a supportive and positive environment. They all agree that gratitude and kindness seem to form a positive loop in the Company. Gratitude creates an opportunity to help others and helping others creates one of the major sources of gratitude in the office.
