Two Magical Words
The two words thank you contain magic within them. They have the power to bring the best out in people; to open closed doors; to make a cold person warm; to generate more business; to generate loyalty in our team members; promote happiness in our homes and our workplaces.
If we come from a place of entitlement—in that life and people owe us—then just saying the words thank you do not have the same power as when propelled out of a heart of gratitude. The more deeply grateful we are, the more meaningful thank you becomes.
As you wrap this year up with those people you work, live and play with, take some time to reflect on what they contribute to your life and express a heartfelt thank you by way of written or spoken words.
And lastly, I would like to say thank-you to all of you here who read and comment on my writing; the wonderful business owners and managers I have had the privilege of working with this year by way of consulting and speaking; the editors who have published my writing; and the association directors who have promoted my work.
I trust you have a wonderful Christmas and a New Year that is blessed beyond measure. May you see unimagined new doors open for you in 2019.
