Why Say Thank You?
“Thank you” is such a powerful expression. It means so much to the person you are thanking particularly if they need to hear it. It might even be for something that they are expected to do but it doesn’t mean that a thank you is not appreciated. This is a short talk, given by Dr. Laura Trice about the power of saying thank you. She talks about why we are hesitant to thank people and how important it is to actually say those words to as many people as you can. Thank your partner, your kids, your friends, your colleagues. Thanks has to be genuine but surely you have things to be thankful for. Since you are already on this page, why don’t you make a list of the people who could and should thank and make a printable for each one.
Dr. Laura Trice also discusses why we are hesitant to say thank you and to let people know we would like them to thank us. The reason is because some people are afraid that it will make them more vulnerable. Take three minutes to listen to the talk and you will be happy you did. As she says, how can we ever have world peace when we don’t each worry about creating it in our small circles.
