Is appreciation really necessary?
Yeah! Appreciation is necessary and Showing appreciation means you are grateful in whatsoever may comes your way, be it big or small, at some point i have noticed that a lot of people tends not to appreciate when something small or meger is given to them but this is wrong, as it may be a kind of test to you and if you failed to show appreciation, that would be the end for you and nothing more for you next time, we all know, they will always be a next time, then asked yourself this question, how would the next time be like?
what would it seems like?
Would i be remember or recognized in the midst?
I use to be a victim of not showing appreciation when i am offered something i did not expect to be given and i would be bragging and bragging that i deserved more than what was given to me, yeah, it may be true, that i deserved more than what was given to me, now since this is what was given to me, why can't i just be grateful and expect something bigger and greater in the future but i didn't know this and I would choose to look the other way out, making me to missed more and more opportunities in my life, as some people may not like my reactions and may choose not to do anything with me again or would refused to engaged or do business with me.
I see appreciation as a motivation for your supporter to do more and more, that you acknowledge their kindness and generosity and that you are grateful for that which he is doing for you, That is why, at some point, you would easily come across some people carrying around this phrase " Never despise your little beginning" because your beginning May be small but the end point may be greater tomorrow, we all are familiar with the words that "Nothing good comes easy" and that the begining does not matter, yet all what that matters is the end.
There was once someone paid my transport fare, that was two years ago, i was on my way going to a friend's house, me and the other passenger had a conversation and i told me that, i am new in the neighborhood, i asked him where to locate my friends residence, for the fact that, he had stayed there for a longer time, he knew all the routes and he directed me, and i thank him wholeheartedly, i reached where i am to drop, when he noticed that i am so grateful for the little assistance he gave to me and thanking him for giving him the right direction on how to locate my friends neighborhood, he was so happy and he said, do not worrying about your transport fare, i would pay it for you, and that was it, i showed appreciation and being grateful for the little assistance he offered to me and he did more for me and also requested that I gave him my number, he was calling me to check if i landed on the exact place as he directed and up till date, we are still friends and he is more like a father to me.
Gratitude is important to life. A thankful spirit connects us where a sense of entitlement can tear us apart. For some of us, this sense of appreciation comes with maturity. I am pleased you made a new friend which began simply from opening up your heart to a spirit of gratitude.
