I was pondering on why people are successful (I know – yet again). You and I both know that appreciation is the core of any success. I believe that it emerges from the three aspects of appreciation:
- Thank you – be able to see, value, and recognize the resources around you
- Acknowledgement – have the capacity to celebrate others’ successes without comparing yourself negatively to those individuals
- Encouragement – dig deep to be able support others who may not act they want it or seem like they deserve it
The “miraculous” thing about the three aspects of appreciation is they lead to greater success as they demand that you expand your courage, compassion, and wisdom.
What a gift!
