Appreciation has Magic

The most exciting thing I have learned recently is the magic of genuine appreciation. It is said that ‘Death and life are in the power of the tongue.’ This is very true. There is no joy than to see people respond to genuine and sincere appreciation. It is only when we appreciate people that we build relationships and we all know that the world runs on relationships. Sometimes we learn lessons the hard way by making mistakes and falling. It is bad enough that you have fallen, the worse is when someone tries to discipline you harshly right after the fall. The power of appreciation is great, depending on how you deliver it and who delivers it. It is important that you get appreciation from someone who has a good credibility.

The greatest part about appreciation is that it makes people connect to you and start liking you. You can try hard to build a rapport with someone but the only thing that cracks it is open appreciation. Sometimes we are too stuck up in ourselves to give appreciation that openly. It brightens up someone’s day when you go to them and tell them you admire them or look up to them. Everyone works hard and tries hard to get success and an integral part of success is recognition and appreciation. I got appreciated boldly by someone I admire a lot and that has been the best day of my life. I would say that it is even better than the day I was proposed!! I love that experience so much and I will pass it on. It is important that we pass on the good that comes to us. The appreciation that I received has pushed me to the limits and made me try to do better and better. The human craving for recognition is never ending.
