All of us love to be appreciated. A pat on the back, a few words of encouragement, a tight hug, a motivating smile or any thing else can work wonders on anyone. It motivates us and pushes us forward to work even better in future. Have you ever experienced it ? This one act of appreciation by someone can make our day. It gives us a lot of pleasure. It gives us satisfaction and fulfillment.

But when all of us love to be appreciated then why can’t we appreciate others in the same way ? Why is it so difficult to say a few good words ? Why don’t we express our feelings openly ? Even the Golden Rule rightly says “treat others as you would like to be treated”. If we like to be appreciated then why not wholeheartedly appreciate others as well ?

Let’s try it out from today. If we feel good about something then lets share it. Lets learn to appreciate others. The biggest source of happiness is to make others happy. Appreciating others is one of the best ways of encouraging others and spreading happiness. Lets try to become the cause of others happiness. Lets make someone feel special and wanted. Lets not be a miser while praising others.

  1. I appreciate your appreciation for the rarely used human quality “appreciation”.
    I think the reason people don’t appreciate well, is because of the sense of obligation that gets attached when you appreciate someone for a favor. And the reason people may be miser about appreciating good thing is purely out of jealousy. Can’t stand something better (material or quality) in someone else’s possession.

    1. true … jealousy is one of the main causes of not appreciating others.
      Sometimes its very difficult to accept that someone else did something better than you. So ego hinders appreciation. Only strong people can overcome it !

  2. You hit the right point. Good one.

    Your writing has shown significant improvement, from the beginning of your blog to Jan 2012. I can see that clearly. Keep writing.
