When you express gratitude, it lets others know your depth of appreciation. Receiving help from others is less about fortune and more about their desire to support you in your endeavors. It's easy to say "thank you" but more difficult to let our sincere appreciation be known. Showing how thankful you are from a place of sincerity lets you communicate the fullness of your gratitude. Accept the opportunities you receive through the generosity of others with gratefulness, and you will appreciate how the universe works more deeply.
