THE DEEPEST HUMAN NEED IS THE NEED TO BE APPRECIATED. – WILLIAM JAMES
When you appreciate others, God creates more avenues for your appreciation. As human, we love to be appreciated… appreciated for our efforts, for the work we do. Appreciation is a pure act of acknowledging someone’s efforts or act, without any desire of return of favor in mind.
Life is amazing and people around us are just awesome. They might be hidden behind rudeness, arrogance, shamelessness and many other social diseases… but they are awesome, as we all our created beautifully by the same Creator. Try finding one good aspect of every individual you meet. Praise him or her for that – and I guarantee, he/she will do more of that.
Few may say that appreciation spoils people. I condemn this statement. Appreciation beautifies the act and the person. Flattery and undue praising spoils people as it takes them away from reality.
Appreciation begets Appreciation… Appreciate someone right now. If, after listening appreciation from your side, surprises the person, you needed this book anyways!
