Take out a pen and write down the name of one person you forgot to thank recently. It’s okay, even the pros are not perfect. The good news is that your sharpened sense of awareness will soon make it impossible for you to forget again.
Now think of somebody who could have, or should have, thanked YOU for something recently but – for whatever reason – did not. How does that make you feel? I would suggest you give them the benefit of the doubt. Maybe they were busy, they forgot, or they might still be meaning to thank you. The important thing is to make sure that nobody is left wondering why YOU haven’t been grateful.
OK, now write down the name of somebody you could thank for something TODAY. If you send a Thank You card every day, you’ll see an instant change in your life. The more you practice this, the more you’ll make it into a lifelong habit. As you get better at this you’ll find improvement in your relationships and in every area of your life!
