Giving Thanks: A Time to Express Gratitude For Your Career Success

Giving thanks to show gratitude for your career success

Here in the U.S. we are approaching our Thanksgiving holiday. A traditional time of family, friends, celebration, and feeling grateful for all we have. Often overlooked at this time are our professional and business connections - customers, clients, business partners, mentors, friends and family. These are the people who help us build our business and career success in one way or another. The cornucopia is a symbol of bounty and prosperity. What fills your cornucopia and who helps you fill it? The bounty we experience (housing, food, entertainment, vacations/holidays) is the result of our interactions with everyone who helps us be successful

Now is the perfect time to stand out from the crowd and express your gratitude by sending a Thank You note to your contacts. Tell your contact why you are grateful that he or she is in your life. Connect on a personal level. Whether you send an e-card or traditional paper card, showing your gratitude at Thanksgiving will have a unique impact. Why wait for the Winter Holiday Season to offer "Seasons Greetings" when you can be thankful now.

Here are two simple examples you can use or adapt if you like:
