Every man who wants to be successful, must train his mind to be appreciative. Appreciation refers to a feeling and show of gratitude for something done or received. Thus, true gratitude reflects not only in your words but also in reciprocal action.
To begin with, learn to express your appreciation to those who work with you, support your business, clients, and staff, etc., and those who contribute in any way to your comfort. Their help, no matter how small, makes your life easy. Do not take any form of help for granted.
However, there is another aspect of appreciation that you need to learn. This is appreciating people for who they are, especially those who are better than you are, or have attained more success in the area you are striving to succeed. It is wisdom to recognize that everyone is not equal or at the same level with you hence, they should not be treated the same way.
There are those who have gone before you and have made a success out of their lives. The fact that they have succeeded already shows that there is something they know and understand that you do not, and they have something to contribute to your success. Having this perception, translates into appreciation, which may translate into a mentorship relationship.
Therefore, do not let pride stop you from appreciating and acknowledging their achievements and accomplishments. Your appreciation may lead you to the open door you have been praying for.
