Say Thank You to People That Have Helped You

You never know how thanking someone is going to affect them. For anyone that read my book, you know about Mel Kerper, my 5th grade teacher that I wrote a "Thank You" letter to in 1999.

It's been so long that I had practically forgotten that I had written a letter to Mel about how things were going at Steiner and how much everything he instilled in me as a young kid carried through to my work at Steiner Sports. A couple of weeks ago I got an email from his brother in-law showing that he had saved the letter.

I am grateful for all of the things that Mel did. I am even more grateful that by writing the letter it meant something to him. Truly unbelievable- having that type of impact on people is not something you ever think about as you go through life. Yet, here it is, proof that even just a letter can have a tremendous impact on someone. 

What types of things are you doing to have an impact on people?
