About the Book
One of the purposes of this book is to encourage the reader to develop an attitude of gratitude using the power of Thank you. There is something beautiful about the power of thank you and that is its ability to transcend the power paradox quite simply by shifting focus from you to the interests, needs, expectations and dignity of the people around you. This paves the way for the expression of gratitude, possibly the most important foundation of enduring power. When you say a genuine thank you in any way you choose to, it creates a strong connection and makes way for greater influence.

First I want to say something about the fact that Yemi wrote this book. I don’t know if you ever thought about writing a book, but I have and I found the idea really scarey: To publicly expose oneself to criticism and so on. So I think this is a very brave thing to do. To do anything in public you need self-confidence and this means we need to be proud of what we have been given, who we are and what we do. Not proud, in the sense that I think my achievements are all due to my own effort but proud that I have opportunities and gifts. Real pride that is, not false self-praise. Putting pride alongside gratitude makes pride the sister of humility. Not its’ opposite.
Some of the things in the book you know already eg. It is good manners to say thank you. Some things you will not know already, eg. Gratitude can help to reduce stress and worries, and can also help one think more clearly under pressure! However, this book takes you further, so what you already know takes on a new meaning!
