“Unless you have bad times, you cannot appreciate the good times”. Joe Torre
One of the habit of highly successful people is noticing even small accomplishments of others and timely appreciating.Some of us have developed the reluctance ourselves to appreciate others, even they deserve for the same. It is applicable for both on family relationship as well as in the professional / business environment.
The psychological reasons of this reluctance to appreciate others are
- Fear of losing control
- More of self centered as if no time
- Taking granted
- Poor self-esteem or low confidence
The study shows that the person who is appreciating others needs to be in a positive frame of mind. If one is not in a positive state, he / she cannot able to appreciate others. Hence, appreciation is not for only motivating others, it is a measure of our wellness of mental strength.
