Showing Appreciation in Business and Life

Showing appreciation in business and life are so very much the same. There are so many things and times that you can take for granted. A lesson I have learned while studying some very interesting philosophies are that taking a step back to realize all of the great things that are happening in your life. There is a plethora of things right now either teaching you a lesson and/or guiding you through your life. Appreciate the hard times just as much as the glorious times because without the hard times you could not possibly be where you are at right now. They shape and mold you to be the best person you were meant to be. Do not forget to appreciate all of the people that were put in your life at the exact moment to teach you and give you support. Memories of coaches, parents, strangers, and friends all come to my mind especially when I face a challenge that I am unsure of and they guide me through. Appreciation is very much underrated and it is not shown enough in our society because we are all sooo busy doing things that seem so important yet, we don't stop to thank. Thanking someone for helping you or loving you or believing in you can truly make the receiver feel great. It reminds me of a song that Kanye West sang where he quotes "no one gets the flowers while they can still smell them". Always always always thank and show appreciation to people because none of us could do the great things we want to do alone. And when I say no one I mean even the most powerful figures in the world could not do what they do alone. They too have felt insecure, vulnerable, not good enough but still made it through because of someone or something believed in them. Today and for the rest of your life show appreciation tell people you value them and most of all enjoy it because it is what life is all about. THANK YOU
