Although I have gotten better at it over the years, I could still do a MUCH better job of telling others how I appreciate them. Saying "I appreciate you" to someone and then backing it up with telling them WHY can feel a bit uncomfortable .... perhaps because we simply don't PRACTICE it enough (by doing it on a regular basis).
It DOES, however, FEEL GOOD once you do it .... and it's ALWAYS apparent that it makes the other person feel good. It's really no different than giving them a gift, and giving feels good doesn't it?
Try this today .... write down the names of THREE PEOPLE you can CALL or who you expect to SEE today .... the goal being to USE YOUR VOICE to tell them that you appreciate them.
Make sure you have clarity on the WHY -- being able to explain the REASON you appreciate them.
Now .... commit to DOING IT today. Make it a point to reach out to at least one person in the next 10-15 minutes. You'll make their day .... I guarantee it.
I've got MY THREE written down ... have you?
