Thanksgiving is obviously the perfect time to say thank you to those who have made a positive impact in our lives in some way. Perhaps what is not so obvious is the opportunity to thank people for the difference they will make. Acknowledging people for past accomplishments lets people know they have provided value, but acknowledging people for the value that you anticipate they will bring allows people to see your vision for them and step into that possibility.
Yes, Thanksgiving is a time to thank, but it’s the giving part that can create so many new possibilities. It’s not about giving things; it’s about giving people the opportunity to know they matter.
