Appreciation is magic

Sunday, July 18, 2010
It is always nice to feel appreciated.
Some people seek out the need to feel appreciated.
If you are one of these people, try doing the things in this list.
I wrote these tips while I was being certified as a Life Coach.
I still happen to think they are pretty great!

8 Tips/Keys on Appreciation:

1. Ask your children/loved ones to tell you 1 thing they appreciate about you each night before bed.
2. A few appreciative words can motivate you to work harder.
3. Lead by example- Never forget to say thanks or how appreciative you are.
4. Graciously accept the appreciation- always say thank you for noticing.
5. Take the time to celebrate the small things you do well every day.
6. Convert your compliments into acknowledgements.
Ex. Excellent lasagna- you are a great cook!
7. When you take the time to show appreciation for someone else, you may just make their day when it's only cost you a few moments of yours.
8. Appreciate yourself, say it out loud. Who cares what the person next to you thinks! You are fabulous!

A word of encouragement during a failure is worth more than an hour of praise after success.
