The words “thank you” are powerful generators of positivity.
If “I am” are the most important generators of positivity, then “thank you” are the next most important.
Thank you is the simplest and yet possibly the most powerful means to convey gratitude. Thank you can change a negative moment into a positive one.
It is not just powerful when you are thanked, but equally powerful when you are thanking. Hearing “thank you” conveys a sense of accomplishment, of positive reinforcement, of appreciation. Saying “thank you” expresses your gratitude both for people and things, and can open up innumerable doors.
These two simple words, spoken with sincerity and conviction can change the world. We are loathe to express gratitude, but there is no good reason for this to be so. We should more frequently and willingly share gratitude with one another.
Don’t you love how it feels when you are thanked for a gift, thanked for a compliment, thanked for a job well done, thanked for helping, thanking for thinking of someone? I have not met anyone who did not receive sincere thanks and NOT felt better and more positive because of it. As such, doesn’t it make sense to SAY “thank you” more often?
People joke about how words matter. But as important as it is for you to be conscious of what follows “I am”, it is also important to express gratitude frequently. Gratitude generates vast amounts of positive energy. Positive energy generates feeling good, and feeling good makes people happier. Is that not what, ultimately, most of us want to feel?
People do not realize the power of these two words. In a similar manner as “I am”, “Thank you” can be a vehicle to both give and receive positive messages, and can change a negative to a positive, a bad moment to a good moment. Just saying “Thank you” for being can build and grow positivity.
As we express gratitude, to ourselves or to others, we open up to greater positive experiences and more opportunities as such to be happy.
Finding positivity is not hard, it just requires action. Knowing that the words “thank you” are amongst the most powerful creators available to us, we have an unlimited capacity to generate positivity for ourselves. When we generate more positivity for ourselves, our positivity can bring about positivity in others, and we can work together to use the positive energy to be happier. If more people receive “thank you” for what they do, this leads to them to give “thank you” to others. Gratitude leads to happiness. Happiness is the ultimate positive attitude. Positive attitude begets positive energy, and that is always a good thing.
