Show gratitude for every opportunity that comes your way, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant.
One of the most powerful phrases in the English language is “Thank you.”
You don’t need to take my word for it. Study Ho’oponopono, which is a beautiful traditional Hawaiian practice centered on reconciliation and forgiveness.
In this practice, four simple phrases were identified as being the most healing:
- I love you
- I’m sorry
- Please forgive me
- Thank you
Get in the habit of saying these phrases more often – to yourself and to others.
More to the point, send “thank-you” notes to your mentors, event organizers, collaborators, and whoever connects you with new opportunities.
Giving and sending “thank-you” notes is good manners. It helps you focus on the positive in life. And while this is not the goal – it can also help you be remembered, which can lead to more opportunities in your music career.
