The Best Way to Get Help is to Give It

Now in all honestly, who better than one who works in the helping profession to know the importance of gratitude? I could not resist sharing two links to articles on INC. titled: The Stuff Strong Relationships are Made Of  and The Power of Gratitude, both written by Jeff Haden.

There are wonderful messages of gratitude from writing hand written ‘thank you’ notes to going out of your way to assist a colleague who lost their job find a new job. One does this because one wants to, not because one has to. Gratitude must be sincere.

“Appreciation is the one thing that should never be scaled or automated. If you’re truly grateful why not take the time to personally express your gratitude in a heartfelt, genuine way?”

and

“Pick a person who has helped you. Pick a person who has made a difference in your life. Pick someone you haven’t thanked or haven’t thanked properly. Then make gratitude a verb. Share it. Deliver it. Express your appreciation, sincerely and openly.”  -Jeff Haden
