Our mom cooks for us, take care of us, protect us andmost importantly she bought us in this world. But how many times we say thankyou or praises her? We do things for her, take her outside but never say thankyou. There are so many other people in your life that always supported you butyou forget to say thank you.
We say everything good to them but never say thankyou. Sometimes the most suitable answer is ‘thank you’. Gratitude is the key tosuccess but how often we show gratitude to others, how many times we reallymean ‘thank you’? Here are the situations when you can simplysay thank you- 1- When anyone gives you adviceIt happens sometimes that we don’tneed advice but some people think that their advice is very helpful to you. Butsometimes it is annoying and unnecessary.
Instead of saying something like ‘I don’tneed your advice’ or anything that can hurt just say ‘thank you for your help’. Thank them for their concern for you.2- When someone praises youIt is natural reaction to say thankyou for the compliment. But sometimes unintentionally we say something elsethat devalues his/her compliment.
Think ofa situation- when your friend says ‘it is a beautiful dress, you are lookingbeautiful’ and in reply, we say ‘no it’s not new, just got the chance to wear ittoday.’ We think that saying thank you would sound arrogant but say thank you is always good.3- When you are late for workplaceMaybeyou are a punctual person but sometimes due to any reason you get late for a meeting, you let yourself down, your boss downand your company down. Instead of saying sorry and explaining why you are latejust say thank you for waiting. It shows your positive attitude and it alsoshows that you really value their time.
4- When you get feedbackWhenever we receive feedback forsomething, most of the time we take it in a negativeway. Feedbacks are useful because it helps you to improve your mistakesand to get to know what your mistakes were. Instead of taking it in wrong way or instead of explaining yourself on anegative comment, just say ‘thank you foryour honest response.’ 5- When you comfort someoneSometimes it happens that your friendcomes to you with some bad news andexpects comfort and guidance from you. In general,we say ‘I am sorry for your loss’ or ‘I am sorry that it happened to you’ butrather than saying this say ‘thank you for sharing this with me, I am withyou.
‘ Show them that you are thankful for their trust in you and you are therefor them. You should say thank you as many times as you can.Show them you appreciate their help, love,and concern.
