Your Personal Self-Esteem Coach strongly suggests ...

Saying 'Thank You'

... whenever anyone helps you in any way.

Steve Coerper

Whenever you are in a period of transition, one of the best investments you can make is to get a box of thank-you cards and a few books of first-class stamps, and then make it a habit to send a brief note to everyone who helps you toward your objective.  Almost everyone who hears this suggestion responds with, “Yes, that’s a good idea.  I should do that.”  But hardly anyone does.


Less than half a buck to cement a good impression into the mind  – and heart  –  of someone you’ve dealt with.  Perhaps a prospective employer, business partner, secretary, or just someone who can network for you.

Listen  –  you can’t easily buy that kind of good will, so when you have a golden opportunity to have a positive impact, don’t just say, “I should do that.”  DO IT.

The road to failure  –  or at least mediocrity  –  is also paved with good intentions.

Take this positive action step today.  Get your cards and stamps, be attentive when being introduced to someone who can help you on your way, and if they do ANYTHING that benefits you in your transition, send a card promptly.
