“Thank you,” just two simple words which can make a person feel good, but many people find it so difficult to use it in their daily lives. Some even believe that saying “thank you” or “sorry” can spoil friendships, it’s logically unjustified. Thank you or sorry can never spoil things, they can certainly make things better.
What’s a thank you, profession?
Well, any profession where you exhibit zeal, give your 100% effort and in turn is made to feel appreciated, is a thank you, profession. It can be any profession especially the noble professions like teaching, nursing, medicine, home making (mothers surely deserve a thank you).
Professions dealing with human resources hold greater chance of giving immense satisfaction and appreciation, than those dealing with non-human resources like computer and file work. The reason why- teachers, mothers, doctors, nurses feel the joy of serving and receiving thank you.
Being an educator, my profession deals with interacting with young minds and helping them discover their innate potentialities. It is more than educating, it involves healthy interaction with young minds, diagnosing and solving their problems, helping them overcome their own difficulties, continuously motivating them, and boosting their self-confidence.
Dealing with age groups which are genuine and more giving than most adults, surely imbibes positivity and lifts the mood. Their innocent smiles and positive vibes work as a synergizer. I’m blessed to be in a profession where there is always someone who comes upto me with a big smile and says, “thank you” for motivating and educating in a way like never done before.
Thank you is a type of motivation. If someone does something good then kindly value it by saying thank you and appreciating the other person’s efforts. Every effort is actually priceless, countable, and deserves a thank you. Kindly acknowledge the efforts of your family, friends, employees, colleagues, teachers, students, doctors, nurses, waiters and the people around you.
“Files can never say thank you, nor can computers. It’s only humans who can add a humanly touch by saying thank you.” –Sadaf Siddiqi.
Never miss a chance to thank a person’s effort because it is not always that a person puts in such a great effort. Thank you, is certainly one of the best type of motivation to be gifted to someone. Once appreciated, the hard work of the person gets multiplied by 1000 times in the future.
Receiving a thank you, is like someone patting your shoulders and saying “I like your work, well done.” So, next time do uplift people around you by saying, thank you. A thank you, is like a magic wand that can work wonders. It’s always the best time and never too late to make use of “thank you” or “sorry,” so keep spreading the magic of “thank you.”
