lives. We often fail to appreciate the full value of our health, of the people we love, of our peace, freedom and prosperity, and the very fact that we are alive at all.

there, your commitment to create a focus on thankfulness will serve you well. • Pick any topic in your life start by finding the best thought or feeling you can about it with gratitude. Then, find the next better thought or feeling about that then go to the next better one thought and feeling about that soon you will be in appreciation. • There are two branches of appreciation one is gratefulness and second is thanksgiving. If you go through grateful motions, the emotion of gratitude should be triggered. Grateful motions include smiling, saying thank you that can make you a good appreciator. • Energy is contagious,
so by spending time with people who are natural appreciators rather than complainers sets you up for success. At the minimum, limit your exposure to those who have tendencies toward pessimism and negativity. • Appreciation must be sincere and immediate. • Appreciation in public is more powerful than appreciation in personally. • Develop a culture of appreciation at homes and at working places as a part of environment.

When I see someone less fortunate than myself, I realize how lucky I am • I acknowledge to others how important they are to me • I remind myself to think about the good things I have in my life • As I get older I find myself more able to appreciate the people, events and the situations that have been part of my life history • I often appreciate others immediately and sincerely. We’re all more vulnerable and needy than we like to imagine. Authentically appreciating others will make you feel better about yourself, and it will also increase the likelihood they’ll invest more in their work, and in you. The human instinct for reciprocity runs deep most important thing is that we have to appreciate both ourselves and others.
