THANKS !

Thank you so much for being with me again today.

I started today off with two of the three most important words in the English language. I started off with ‘Thank you.’ These two words along with ‘Please’ make up the three most important words. We teach our kids that they are magic words. They are words which make us want to act and feel good when we have.

These three words are free, and they make both the sender and the receiver feel better. Do you feel better when helping someone who says please, or when they just ask for something and don’t say please? Chances are, please puts the request on a higher plane of being accomplished.

I have seen emails where supervisors and managers are reminded not to say thank you too much to the employees. I cannot understand any reason for that request. Hearing a ‘Thank you’ means a lot to anyone it is directed at. And in the case of employees, we have to remember that they are usually the only people in a company who actually do value added to any products sold to a customer. These people deserve a thank you from everyone in the company, top down.

So, when you are out and around about, please remember your please and thank yous’. The words actually are magic, because they make both the sender and the receiver feel better.

Thank you for joining me today. Please join me again tomorrow.

He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future.
