There are two little words that can open any door with ease. One little word is “thanks” and the other little word is “please.” Most of our moms and dads taught or sang these words to us as young children. And that’s good because its truths are forever. And it serves as a good reminder for us adults, too. Thankfulness should fill our hearts (Col. 3:16). Especially towards those who have helped us succeed. Showing our appreciation further opens the hearts of those who have helped us, leading them to continue to do so. The word “please” shows humility before another person. No one likes to help another when they are arrogant or haughty. But humility causes us to be lifted up (James 4:10). It stimulates others to help us be successful in the future as well. Try it today: Say “please” and “thanks” often. Your parents would nod in approval. And see if closed doors before you start opening up with ease.
