Give honest and sincere appreciation.

When you give honest and sincere appreciation, you will lift the other person’s spirits and give them something to treasure for years to come, thus improving your relationship with them.


  1. Write down, “I shall pass this way but once; any good, therefore, that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer nor neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.”
    Stick it somewhere you pass by frequently—your bedroom mirror or kitchen fridge, for example.
  2. Express your appreciation for others.
    Take time to truly consider the other person’s good points and sincerely let them know how much you appreciate them.
