The Secret Power of Thank You

Uncategorized Nov 30, 2022

Were you taught to say “please” and “thank you” when you were a child? In my family those words were called magical, and what we wanted didn’t happen without a “please” attached to it, so they did feel kind of magical.

And “thank you” has a hidden, even more magical power.

Most of us remember – at lease some of the time – to thank those who do things for us. When we thank them we make that other person feel good, which makes them more likely to do nice things in the future. That’s a powerful way to impact the world, and yet there’s another power that “thank you” has – it’s a polite way to ignore unsolicited advice.

People give advice because they want to help you, yet often the advice is unwelcome, unwanted and unuseful. (is that even a word?) Instead of arguing with or ignoring the person who’s trying to help you, say “thank you.” Nothing else – just “thank you.” You let them know they’ve been heard and appreciated and you’re free to flush the advice out of your brain right away.

Powerful!
