The power of two words ‘THANK YOU’

the power of words

From a child growing up, we are taught two important sayings namely ‘PLEASE’ and ‘THANK YOU’ and in business they are just as important.

So, how often do you say ‘thank you’ to a colleague, supplier or even a client?

Answer:   It should be every day.

Remember that simple things matter and by taking the time to say ‘thank you’ will make a big difference and can be what makes you memorable and stand out in a competitive world.

There are many ways that you can express your gratitude and I believe in being sincere, as you can’t ever assume that people know you’re grateful and, I tend to go for the old school method, by picking up the phone or sending a handwritten note.

Saying ‘thank you’ in business is powerful, thoughtful, memorable, inexpensive, and easy.

So, next time someone gives you a referral, comments on a blog, gives you a testimonial remember two words ‘THANK YOU’.

I found this poem sent to Valdenira by her daughter Raquel in 1999, which sums up the perfectly on the power of ‘thank you‘.

What does ‘Thank You’ really mean?

” Thank you” is one of those wonderful phrases

people use to express a special gratitude.

But there’s often a lot more to it

than those two words can say.

When it comes from the heart, from deep inside

the nicest feelings and the most special thoughts,

“Thank you”means so much.

It means thank you for taking the time to show

that you care. It means “you really made my day,”

and sometimes it means that you really make all

the days so much better.

It means you make me feel so nice,

and I wish I could do the same for you…

just by letting you know how much you mean to me.

“Thank you” means you didn’t have to…

but I’m so grateful that you did.

“Thank you” means that you’ve done something special

that I’ll never forget.
