The Power of Appreciation
Appreciation goes along way in building healthy and happy relationships. People respect you or take to you because you make them feel important.
1) A Boss who says to his staff at the end of each day or week. “Thank you so much for all your help” will get the best out of staff and they’ll be more than willing to do an extra hours work, if ever the company has urgent deadlines. Ofcourse bonuses and Pay rises go a long way too.
2) A Parent who appreciates any little progress made at school or home by children, will bring out more of that child’s potential because the child will feel loved and would want to please more / do better.
3) Partners/Spouses who appreciate themselves and what they do for each other will always be happy and will constantly think of things to do, that will make each other happy. Remind your partner of how special they are to you. (◕‿◕)
4) A Business Owner should think of ways to appreciate customers, so when other competitors try to “snatch” them, the customers won’t be swayed.
There is a lady who cleans our office. Very quiet. Sometimes, I teach 6 – 9pm, so I see her. At Christmas and Easter, I give her gifts. The smile on her face Priceless!! She doesn’t expect it. (To me, she is just as important as other Colleagues and Directors). People never ever forget how good you make them feel, no matter how small and I am grateful to all who have made me feel the same way too.
Ps. Appreciation should never cease. Many relationships breakup because people no longer feel appreciated.
