Do You Know the Power of “Thank You?"

Did you know there is power in your words? Do you send thank you cards to others? Are you a constant complainer? Why not turn that around by making it a point to say “Thank You” more often? Yes, this can be done.

Thank you messages are very important.  There are some people that are so unhappy that their day consists of complaining. Do you know of anyone like that? Have you ever tried giving that complainer some encouraging words or just thanking them? Even a complainer has something to give that you can say thank you for.

1. Power of Words

John 1.1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

The law of attraction.com talks about how everything begins with a word. They further talk about words consisting of vibrations and sounds that create reality. I agree. The words in the bible are alive and those words also create reality. How awesome.

2. Choose Words Carefully

It is so important to choose words carefully. So often you may see those that feel it is okay to say anything to anyone at anytime. It is not okay. Also, it is not acceptable. When you thank someone regardless to how small a task or gesture may appear it can be a win/win situation for both of you.

I recall parking and discovering that I did not have change for the meter. A friend and myself were on our way to court. A gentlemen offered me changed. I thanked him and thought what a nice gesture that saved me, because I was not aware that I did not have change for the meter. Some might even call this a random act of kindness.

3. Something New

The world is full of knowledge. Other people are full of knowledge. When I learn something new from someone, I make it a point to tell them thank you, because people are not always obligated to share or tell you what they know.

4. Children

You know that we can learn from everyone young and old. I recall while on a field trip as everyone was beginning to eat at the picnic table.  A bee started buzzing around everyone and it was very annoying. My grandson somehow cupped the bee on the table. Everyone thanked him including myself, because it is very disturbing trying to eat outside with any insect flying constantly around your head.   You may also like the article  6 Encouraging Words.

5. Anytime. . . Anywhere

Recently while visiting at the hospital I observed that several of the nurses and staff would thank patients for being a good patient. I thought to myself, “That is so awesome.”  


Now my challenge to you is to go one day without complaining and to tell someone thank you.

Now for a constant complainer this may seem hard in the beginning, but practice will make perfect. I know that this can be done.
