Appreciation towards Motivation

  • Things go right or wrong, but certain situations will definitely need some attention.
    Being truly appreciative isn’t only important in your personal relationships but also when working in teams – like in the workplace, sports teams, and other organizations – it is an attitude that can help you reach your goals.
    ​​If you are wondering what makes high-performing people/teams and what keeps them on top? 
    One of their common secrets is appreciation. Pointing out the good things that each member does may be a trivial thing for many people, but this basic practice that’s often forgotten has the power to give that extra fuel that every team/person needs to win.
    Feeling genuinely appreciated lifts people up. At the most basic level, it makes us feel safe, which is what frees us to do our best work. It’s also energizing. When our value feels at risk, as it so often does, that worry becomes preoccupying, which drains and diverts our energy from creating value.​
    ​Every difficult task you may have can always be easy and simple that a small appreciation might push youself to get motivated everytime you are doing the same thing.  Of course we may not expect this at all, but let's be frank when someone appreciates for who you are and what you are/can do, there will always be a smirk in your face.

    ​That exact time will give us the right restart for some motivation!
