Hi All!! Today I got thanked from one of a mylot member,as I helped her by giving some tips and suggestions regarding online earning by writing articles of 500 words.... I am really very happy and in the future too,I will be very happy if I get opportunity to help others by showing them the right way to earn much more through Internet.After all we all are here for earning money. Do you ever get any opportunity to help other,even if you don't know the person personally or he/she is your Internet friend??? How do you feel after helping them???Please share your views and opinions. Happy Mylotting!!

I always blush when somebody thank me for something that is not a big deal for me, because I just can't use to it. I know that it is polite to say "thank you" but it is not a matter of thanking... I always thank people who help me, but I never feel comfort when somebody thanks me. And I am talking mostly about live conversations, because it is not the same thing when you read "thank you" than when you hear it

I have seen many people who are uncomfortable with this unnecessary courtesy.So,in that case you may say " please,don't mention" or "its ok".Thanks for the post.

Yeah, mostly I say just that, but when someone is DETERMINED to thank you, these words can only make him/her to continue with words such as "no, you are wrong, you really helped me a lot.... and so on and so forth" I am trying not to pay attention and to think of it as a good think rather than bad one. But trying is not as doing, so I am just a step closer :)

I feel very happy when I have to thank someone for the favour, but sometimes very nervous too bcoz if the person is very new to me and I dont know whether he is really favouring me or pretending to do it without a true heart.

It happened when I was still a recruiter in a call center. I cant really say that I helped her because I was not aware of it. She was an applicant, and she passed my initial interview and she was really thankful then I endorsed her to one of our accounts, she did not make it, I called her again and recommended her to a different account and she finally passed the final interview but unfortunately she failed the training period. After a few weeks, she visited me again in the office just to say thank you. she said that she appreciated my patience and kindness to her. She update me that she's currently working for another call center and she just dropped by the office to thank me. I was really touched because I did not even realize that some people appreciate me for just being me. I will never forget that girl. =)

i think that is a great feeling, that you really did something worthwhile and it encourages you to do the same to others, to help because people appreciates what you do.

The feeling is overwhelming especially if your assistance was life-changing for them. It feels great that you had made a difference in somebody else's life.

I will never forget to thank anyone who has done me a good deed. Even here if I get a Best Response Tag I record my gratitude. Being in the attitude of gratitude is the best attitude to be in as it is with God that we remain in gratitude when we thank those around us.

Receiving thank you and gratefulness from the person you helped really feels good. It makes us happy that we have assisted them in some way. However, I do like to help people out not because I want to receive gratitude but rather because I like to extend any help I can give. There's a saying that it is better to give than to receive. I believe in this and I really do prefer to be on the giving end than on the receiving end, the reason being, when you're receiving help that means you're the one in need. I'd rather be the one giving help because it's less stressful, less frustrations than the one in need.

Helping is always a good feeling especially if its genuine and requires nothing in return. I love helping people because I feel it is my duty to help others on things I have learned and know information about. I think it's the least I can do for having the opportunity and being so blessed for knowing what to do and what things are all about . People dont always know everything or cant always perform everything so it is important to lend a hand so when the time comes that it is me who'll be needing the help, people would also be there to lend a hand and help me. :D

Well to tell the truth when i get thanked for doing something to help another it make me feel reliable and giving. I dont care if i get paid or not for helping if i i feel like anyone needs help i help them it makes me proud of my self and i get gratitude from the person i helped. I think helping is a good way to spread kindness to others and the world.

It's a great feeling when somebody thank you because of the help that you had given. For me, saying thank you is more valuable than giving monetary or any material things just to give thanks for the people who had helped you. I am contented hearing the people saying thank you because I helped them because it is one of the good deeds that we can do while we are still living in this world.

Hi all, i am new to MyLot and wow, this happens to be my new post and believe will receive all the support around MyLot. Well, Tuyakiki, i am a firm believer in Internet marketing, and the way to success around the internet is reaching out to someone that needs help online. The net has brought us together as humanity, different nations, toungues, colors and backgrounds. One way i do to help others online is through blogs, i am a constant blogger and i normally share information about anything new that i find around, it may be a business opportunity or advice..it's a great thing to have someone being grateful for the help you have offered. " A giver always has more, and the opposite is true." Happy Mylotting to all!!
