Join John Ullmen for an in-depth discussion in this video Action-based gratitude and the power of thank you, part of Influencing Others.
…As we conclude this course, there's one more influence tool that I want to share.…Albert Schweitzer said, at times our own light goes…out and is rekindled by a spark from another person.…Each of us has cause to think, with deep…gratitude, of those who have lighted the flame within us.…One of the things I've learned from the extraordinary influencers…in my research, is that they make gratitude a habit.…They not only pay forward positive influence they…received, but they express gratitude genuinely and often.…A great way to do it is by using what I'll call the power Thank You.…
It has three parts.…First, thank the person for something specific that he or she did for you.…Second, acknowledge the thought and effort the person took to help you.…And third, tell the person how his or her action made a difference…in your life and what actions you'll take going forward because of it.…I want you to have this experience right away…and see what an impactful habit it is to develop.…Do it for one of your role model influencers by tomorrow.…
