The Two Magical Words "THANK YOU"

I sometimes get a little bothered by ingratitude. I try to treat people well but many times unintentionally hurt them. But i also do pray that they win.Sometimes after helping any of ma friend,relative,teachers etc, I'd just love to hear two magic words: "THANK YOU."

Yes, i know that if you do something good for someone with the expectation of a reward it's not a gift _ it's a trade. And i also know that good things happen to people who do good things.And i know that life has a very fair accounting system and as one sows, one grows. But I'd like to still hear those two magical words often.

Recently i had breakfast with ma cousin who is working as a head group manager in some company { cannot reveal his name}. He's helped so many people in his organisation to realize their highest potential as leaders and as humans. He looked at me and said: "Rohit,after all these years in business, i can count on one hand the number of people who have told me that they appreciate what i've done for them."

I believe I'm offring you a very real point. According to a reasearch, the number one reason employees leave their organisationis not because they were not being paid enough, they leave because they were not given enough appreciation.

Mr.Arun Sarin, the former CEO of Vodafone observed: "the first responsibility of a leader is to define reality . the last is to say Thank You."

So today, take a moment and think about the people in your life who need to be cherished, appreciated and told that their suuport has been helpful, offer a heartful and enthusiastic "THANK YOU."
