How often do you thank?

Stuart Young, London, UK


Take the opportunity today to say thanks.

This is the simplest thing in the world to do – and sometimes the hardest. We all have occasions where saying thanks to someone really sticks in our side. Sometimes we might even decide not to say it at all.

But saying thanks under those conditions can really make a difference, not only to the person you’re saying it to, but to you too.

When you can say thanks, and mean it sincerely, you are on the path to building a bridge with that person. That relationship could end up growing stronger or at least more bearable.

You can even say thanks to the universe for just being alive!

On the easy side – saying thanks to someone who has just held the door open for you or moved aside to let you through can brighten their day.

That thanks will wind its way through the day passing from one person to the next and the next. Be the one that starts that process off and then enjoy the thought of where it might end up.

You never know, your easy thanks in the morning could end up being someone else’s difficult thanks at the end of the day.

Nice thought huh?

The quickest way to feel valued and appreciated.

Stuart Young, London, UK

This is January 3rd of my book:  ‘How To Change Your Life One Day At ATime‘.

Take the opportunity today to thank someone unexpectedly! It’ll change their day. 🙂

We all like to be thanked, it shows us that we are appreciated and valued and probably more fundamentally – noticed!

As we thank another we are sending that person something intangible and immeasurable. But watch the reaction of the recipient. Some will smile broadly and some will beam proudly while others will have a more subtle reaction.

A reaction there will be though. In sending out that thanks you will automatically open yourself to receive it more readily yourself and therefore feel valued and appreciated aswell.

Get in to the habit of enjoying thanking people and it could turn out to be one of the easiest ways to positively influence your life and the lives of those around you.

When you search for the opportunity to thank unexpectedly it will have the biggest impact. It’s second nature to most people to thank someone if we have the door held open for us or if someone gives us a lift but find that occurrence when someone does something they don’t expect you to notice.

Maybe the postman will pick up a piece of litter off your front lawn or the shop assistant might run to fetch that bottle of milk you forgot while you’re at the checkout.

Search for it and you’ll find it and when you do you’ll find yourself searching for that opportunity all the time.

Have fun looking. 🙂
