Thank you. Those are the two sweetest words.
Isn’t it nice when someone thanks you? Don’t you feel good when you thank someone?
We all have nice things done for us and we often don’t acknowledge those who have done those good things.
What about the person who helps you to solve a problem: Have you thanked them properly? What is properly?
What about the person who has suggested that someone does business with you? Have you spent the few minutes it takes to thank them for the introduction?
It’s amazing how few people ever get around to acknowledging to thanking those who help them. We all get help. None of us have made it on our own.
If you want others to continue to help then making thank you part of your vocabulary will go a long ways in keeping the help coming. I know that when people thank me I’m motivated to help them even more.
What about you? Are you motivated to help when others thank you?
My suggestion: Find someone that has helped you in the past and find a reason to call them to says thanks for the help; both parties will feel great.
