What do you understand by the words Thank you? Thank you is a way of showing your gratitude towards a person. This word may or may not be important to you but it is important to the person who helps you. It is important for a person to say Thank you frequently to develop friendliness in his attitude.
So, how often you use Thank you? No idea, isn’t it? Many of us don’t even use this word frequently For example, many of us don’t say thank you to our mother even-though she serves us the whole day because we think that it is her duty and it is. But just go home today and say thank you to your mom and dad and see the joy, pleasure and glow on their face.
There are many reasons to say thank you. One should use this word frequently to become friendly and avoiding rudeness in his behaviour. When you say thank you to someone, that person will try to serve you better next time and the joy and pleasure that those words invoke in that person is priceless. It is also responsible for the duration and nature of your relationships. It is the foundation of healthy relationships. A person using these word a lot will be surrounded by more friends, family, society etc. and will always be a respected and familiar figure in the society compared to a person saying it seldom.
Now, since there is a right way of doing everything, so is the case for Thank you. I am here to give you some tips on how to say sorry and thank you.
1) Always bear a smile while saying Thank you – It helps a lot while conveying a message. It shows that you are happy with his/her service, you respect that person for the service he/she provided you. It shows that you appreciate him/her.
2)Say softly instead of using loud pitch – Voice plays a very important role in communication. Your mood and mind set is determined by the pitch you use. Using loud pitch can hurt the receiver and will lead to misunderstandings.
3)Keep Body language in mind- A little bend in your body is regarded as showing gratitude and on the top of that saying thank you will enhance the positive message. Standing straight while saying Thank you will often lead the receiver to think that you are arrogant and do not appreciate his/her service. Making eye contact with the receiver will prompt your message and it is also a sign of surety that you are sincere while saying thank you. So, one should take care of his/her body language while saying thank you.
4)Don’t mutter. Be audible! – Don’t mutter while saying thank you, be audible so that you can reach the receiver. If your thank you doesn’t reach the receiver, it is of no use. Muttering a Thank you is often regarded as arrogance and the consequent confusion which will invoke negativity in the receiver.
According to me, little words like thank you, sorry, please should be used more often. They won’t subtract anything from you but instead adds to your quality as a human being. So go and say thank you to all those who has ever rendered you a service. But before that, Thank you for reading this article.
