“Success Begins From The Inside Out!”

Express gratitude to maintain your personal and business relationships.

As we grow up and go through life, there are going to be countless people who do favors or nice things for us. Without these favors we may get stuck between a rock and a hard place.

Usually, these favors are done with nothing expected in return. When that happens we need to at least say “Thank you.” But sometimes, we’re looking to do a little bit more to show appreciation for the things people do for us. Showing gratitude can be as simple as a handshake and a smile, but there are many ways to express gratitude to the people who do things for you in life.

Here are a few ways to express gratitude:

1. Buy Dinner – If someone has done something for you that’s deserving of at least some kind of reward, the easiest way to express gratitude is to take them out to a moderately expensive dinner, while fitting the bill. Don’t be afraid to throw in a few beers. You may not think that showing gratitude in this way means much, but when someone isn’t expecting it at all, they’ll be plenty happy with your method of thanks.

2. Offer Your Services – Everyone is advanced in one trade or another. If someone does a favor for you, feel free to take your professional skills and offer them up for nothing. Expressing gratitude isn’t about a discount, it’s about being kind of enough to not put value on what you offer. Let’s say you’re a landscaper. Perhaps you could mow the lawn of a friend who has done you a favor as a way of saying thanks. Whatever your skill may be, you don’t need to spend hours doing it to express gratitude, but a simple effort can go a long way.

3. Send Flowers – Sometimes, the ones who do us favors are too far away for us to be able to thank them personally. If you’d really like a way to express gratitude toward these people, order flowers online, or send them an Amazon gift certificate to show appreciation for what they’ve done. While the amount of money or value of the flowers would have to be determined by you, keep in mind that most people don’t expect things in return for favors, and the thought of sending something is more than enough compensation for those who do those favors.

4. Send a Thank You Email – As I wrote in a previous post, “Showing Gratitude, How To Maintain Your Important Relationships,” one way to express gratitude is to take 5 minutes each day to send an email or text message thanking someone who has helped you.

There is so much to gain when you express gratitude.

Here are examples of relationships that can prosper by expressions of gratitude.

1. Husbands and wives – The embers of love can be quickly extinguished if spouses do not show each other gratitude.
2. Grown kids to parents – As everyone matures, it becomes very apparent how fortunate we were.
3. Bosses to employees – Employees can start to resent their jobs and their bosses if they don’t feel appreciated.
4. Business people to clients – Showing gratitude can increase customer loyalty, retention and sales.
5. Students to teachers – This may be the first expression of gratitude that they receive.
6. Friends to friends – Don’t assume your friends know how you feel.

How do you feel when people show gratitude for something you’ve done for them? That’s how you’ll make these people feel when you express gratitude to the special people in your life. Make a gratitude list of all the people you are grateful to. Then express gratitude for all they’ve done.

Find a reason to express gratitude to these people every day. The more you express gratitude, the more it will come back to you.

You can cultivate your gratitude using a program sponsored by Send Out Cards called, “30 Days of Gratitude.”

    Gratitude lifts the heart from set backs that seek to weight it and brings a glow from the positive stream of gratitude expressed in words or actions. There many ways by which gratitude can be communicated; form something as simple as a nod, a smile a kind and thankful word to cards, videos, flowers, podiums and poems.
