I believe that one of the biggest motivators in my life is appreciating everything around me. My family, friends, work colleagues and the thousands of people I meet traveling the world. Not a day goes by that I don’t wake up thankful for what my life is all about.
Simply stated, I love life and even through the toughest moments I have learned that the ‘show must go on.’ That show is MY LIFE!
A lack of appreciation causes people to become entitled and arrogant. In business this attitude will destroy your future. Taking customers for granted, not thinking like an owner and jumping from job to job will never allow you to have the appreciation you need to live your best life. There are people that feel the world owes them something. Well I have news for you – no one owes you anything. You earn it.
Don’t let arguments get in your way. Don’t allow disagreements separate you from others, or differences in opinions, drive a wedge between you and the other person. Life is not always a walk in the park. There are issues that need to be dealt with, and when you appreciate others, you will put in the time, energy, and heart, to get to the root cause of anything that comes your way.
No appreciation means that you don’t care and therefore will not give the emotion to make things better.
Find appreciation this week in everything you do and everyone you touch. XO
