The power of thank you is a simple topic, but underestimated and chalked up as a cliche by most. Cliche or not, it’s a game changer for everyone, and you can put it to use right now. In the final episode of MindPower, Season One, allows both Rachel and Shane Krider to say “thank you” to their fans for helping to make their first season such an amazing success. See a snippet below about the power of thank you, and what the words mean to your inner power as a human being.
Hello there, folks! Thank you, thank you, thank you, for tuning in! We are here on the home stretch — episode number 57, the final episode of our first season — the power of thank you. I would like to express my gratitude for the message that went out yesterday. Many of you know that it was going to be our final episode of the season. I got so many messages of gratitude and thanks so I want to express my thank you for all of those messages.
Thank you guys, very much. I appreciate your listening and your attention. We get a lot of comments, shares, and emails and that means a lot to us. I think it’s appropriate to have our last show here to be about thank you.
One of our very first episodes we did under Born to Proper was actually a live video stream that was about gratitude. So thank you and gratitude are obviously similar things, but what’s the difference between the two?
Well, with gratitude you’re acknowledging and giving thanks for things that you have in your life and expressing your appreciation to the universe if you will, other people, etc. Whereas when you’re giving thanks — I don’t know, what is the difference, Shane?
So gratitude in general is just the feeling of being grateful. It’s acknowledging to yourself, to the universe, even to others that you’re grateful. Thank you specifically is acknowledging to another human being by telling another human being thank you.
In fact, some people are harder to thank than others because they seem to cause us challenges, but sometimes we benefit from those challenges. Regardless of of those challenges, there’s value. And sometimes, the most important people to thank are the hardest people to thank.
Think about the teacher that just gave you a hard time all the time. It wasn’t because they were trying to make you a better person, but because they just liked to give people a hard time. Imagine thanking that person, whether it’s a parent, a spouse, a sibling, a friend you grew up with. It’s hard.
You want to change your life, but you have to change the role that you’re playing in life. Most of us are playing the victim, to some degree. But to truly give thanks to someone is to reverse that. To me, thank you is one of the easiest ways to access your inner power as a being.
