Yours Truly was the guest speaker tonight. My subject was “The Importance of saying Thank You.” I asked the question, “What are two of the most powerful words in the English language. Kalei Luii gave The right answer, “Thank you. “
Feeling appreciated is one of the most important needs that people have. When you share with someone your appreciation and gratitude, they will not forget you. Appreciation will return to you many times.
A simple prescription they can help you feel better and aid your mental health is to freely give out intentional and genuine thank you’s.
Although there’s so much rushing in life you can still find time to be helpful and to show gratitude. Did you know that people who are appreciated by a simple thank you demonstrate a 50% increase in their willingness to help?
At DAP, we teach the men that the little effort of saying “thank you” can have benefits far beyond the value of the moments involved. “Thank you“ can enhance their relationships immeasurably and make it well worth the time spent. They cannot afford to not say thank you frequently and graciously to those around them including the brothers they live with.
They are learning that the gift of a thank you is positive for both giver and receiver.
