Synergy Success E-Zine

November, 2011

 Today, look as many people in the eye as you can, and give them two heartfelt words that make all the difference --"Thank You." ~Brook Noel



Greetings to YOU and a Warm Thanksgiving Welcome to our new Subscribers!  I'm so delighted you're a member of our fast-growing community of high-achieving women who want to know how to work smarter (not harder) while moving through your challenges with more confidence, grace and ease.


Yesterday I received a phone call as my daughter and I waited in the check out line at WalMart.  Deep in conversation I failed to notice it was our turn and the cashier had greeted me with a smile and friendly "hello" until Dani-Grace pulled on my sleeve and said "mommy, say hello back to the nice lady!".  (gasp!)  I was embarassed yet so grateful for the wake-up call to pay more attention.  Needless to say, I quickly got off the phone, and after a warm exchange with the cashier we were off and running.


How about you?  Have you noticed In our rush to get things accomplished it's easy to forget to use common courtesy?  We can unintentionally make others feel un-welcomed, taken for granted, or hurt when we're not truly present or mindful of our surroundings.


My Coache's Challenge for you is to make "thanks" simple today.  Tell as many people as you can "thank you" for whatever they have done, large or small.  Buy some cards, send some emails, pick up the phone, sincerely thank the person at the drive-thru window--keep it simple and be gracious. 


"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around." ~Leo Buscalgia


Here's A Huge, Heart-felt "Thank You" for sharing the gift of appreciation with others!

In this ever changing world there are only a few things I feel certain of.  First, the only thing constant is change, so learning to adapt quickly is essential.  Second, it's not what happens to us but what we do with what happens to us that matters most. Third, whether we're making the most of our time or not, our clocks will continue ticking away the seconds, minutes, and hours of our lives without missing a beat.  Click here to continue reading article...
