Would It Kill Us To Say “Thank You” Once In A While?

Would It Kill Us To Say “Thank You” Once In A While 


 thank you


Perhaps it’s a sign of the times. People are working longer hours, have less free time and seem to pulled in so many directions.  Sure, I get it, it’s a me me world and we all expect certain things from others, but I’ve noticed lately that people in general are lacking a little in the manner department. 

I’m not just speaking to my fellow real estate agents, it’s everyone. Heck, even though my parents raised me with good old-fashioned Midwest values, I am just as guilty as the next guy. It seems like we are all so busy and distracted and self-absorbed in our own lives that we rarely take 2 seconds out of our day to utter two words that can make a huge difference to someone else: THANK YOU.

Think about all the things you do on a daily basis and the many people who come in contact with you. Surely during the course of your day you are presented an opportunity to show even the slightest sign of appreciation for something that someone has done for you. It could be an employee, co-worker, a vendor, a teacher, the bagger at the local grocery store, even a friend that sent a great link or funny email. It could even be a spouse or family member, people that are often taken for granted.

I’m sure someone has recently gone out of their way for you, and that gives you a great opportunity to give back to them. 

Did you ever stop to think what it would mean to take just a moment of your time to stop and genuinely thank someone. Everyone loves to be appreciated and valued and saying thank you is the easiest way to do this, and best of all, it’s free.

So do yourself a favor today, stop and thank someone, seriously try it. You will most likely brighten up their day and make them feel good, which in turn should make you feel good as well.

Oh, by the way, if you’ve made it to the bottom of this post, then I want to thank you for reading. I realize you are busy and took time out of your day to read this, and I really do appreciate it. 

See, doesn’t that make you feel better?
