Did you say, Thank You?

GratitudeThank You! Two words and they make our lives beautiful – either we say or hear, we feel good. But as tangled as we are in our daily lives, targets, deadlines, submission dates, appraisals, salary-corrections, travels etc. that we forget to thank people for what they have done to us. Thank your parents, mentors, guides, bosses, friends, colleagues, team-members, janitors, guards and anyone and everyone who has ever helped you.

Thanksgiving, New Year wishes, Holi, Easter, Diwali, Eid, 4th of July etc.. can be used to convey feelings especially thanks. Make it a habit to send out a personal note to everyone who impacted your life in the last year. You will be amazed to see how better your relations become and how much love and respect you will get. The text could be anything as long as it is heartfelt – don’t waste your time and others too by copy-pasting something from the web.

#ThankYou Khalid Raza #SocialGlamorGenuine appreciation goes a long way in building stronger ties and in today’s world relationships shape futures. So take this reading as a poke and scribble down that feeling and send it across.

Who are you thanking this year? And how are you showing your appreciation?

Thank you for reading, liking, commenting and sharing this post with everyone you care!

    Hey Khalid I agree to the letter what you have written. Saying Thank You is an Integral part of a personality. Thanks comes in Three different routs – Mouth, Mind and Heart. If they comes from the first 2 then it more points to One having learnt the art of saying Thanks but when it comes from the 3rd rout it indicates One is Thankful. Being Thankful is most important and this enables us to understand values in Life. Building oneself to be Thankful, knowing more of Values in Life simply scales up the Integrity of a Person. Trust me it builds relationships in leaps and bounds…Happy Thanking !!

    Owen +1/agree with your comment. Khalid, thanks for the reminder, too, to be grateful. While I’m at it, I’ve been lucky for your partnership in the social business and social learning arenas and Owen, you’ve been an amazing advisor in the web-based video space. Thanks to both of you!
