Today is a good opportunity to stop and review the week that you’ve just had, and to just talk about some of the key lessons and those Aha! moments that you’ve taken for the week.
So, what about you? What’s been some of your wins over this last week that you can share down below? What are you most proud of? What are some achievements that you’ve done? Things that you want to highlight – and what about some of the lessons that you’ve learned this week as well?
I’m just heading out from the office today and I would like to share with you what I learned this week. What I want to share with you is about the power of actually saying one word, or maybe two words – THANK YOU.
It’s really a powerful thing, because of the energy that is associated with the words “Thank You” is quite profound and quite powerful.
So often we take so many things for granted, when things are expected and we receive them, we sometimes take them without any acknowledgement. But when we stop and actually just go, “you know what? Thank you for that. I really appreciate, I really acknowledge you for doing that.” No matter how big or how small it was, it goes a long way.
What you can actually see when you say those two key words or one key word is, it opens up their whole paradigm. It opens up their smiles and it opens up their whole energy. It only takes a second to say it, no effort on your part, really. Not only is it polite to say thank you, but saying it transforms the entire experience.
How many of you have experienced this? When someone – a coworker or family recognizes your efforts, no matter how small and gives you a sincere thank you, doesn’t the encounter leave you feeling positive? Wouldn’t you want to leave that same feeling to the person that you’re communicating with?
I hope the realization allows you to incorporate these two words when dealing with people. It enhances the experience for both the giver and the receiver.
So, who’ve we said thank you to over this last week? And who can you say thank you over the weekend, or over this coming week?
Make someone’s day! Really acknowledge someone, really light someone up. So – WINS, LESSONS and THANK YOU.
Thank you and have a good day.
