Review On Being Appreciative

What is appreciation? What does it mean being appreciative? Well here is a story that should put things in perspective.

I had come across a similar article before but never thought of it in the way it occurred to me today and that is being appreciative and not taking things done for us for granted.

I recently read the article again about a youth who went for an interview.

Briefly when asked by the director who conducted the interview, who paid for his education his response was that his parents did. When asked where his parents worked  he replied that they worked as clothes cleaners.

The interviewer looking at the youth's hands noticed that they were perfectly smooth so he asked whether the youth has ever helped his parents.  The youth replied that his parents only wanted him to read books and pay attention to his studies.  The interviewer suggested that the youth on his return home clean his parent's hand and return the following day.

The youth did and realized that the hands that enabled his school fees to be paid were wrinkled, bruised, and sore to the touch... and the tears fell. 

When he returned to the interview his tears could still be seen and he was asked what he did and what he learned. He responded by saying that he finished washing the clothes for his arents and referred to the fact that only then did he realize that his parents bruised and painful hands were the price they paid for his education. 

His comment: "I now know what appreciation is. Without my parents I would not be who I am today."

The director told him:

"This is what I am looking for in a manager.
I want to recruit a person who can appreciate the help of others, a person who knows the sufferings of others to get things done, and a person who would not put money as his only goal in life.”

As we go through life and experience the benefits from the work of others we should learn to be appreciative of the efforts made on our behalf. Too often both the young and the old take for granted things others do.  

Children growing up in a home should have chores so that they do not grow up with the feeling that the world owes them a living, and hopefully they have a better understanding of the work, sometimes the struggles, and the sacrifices parents/others make so their offsprings become who they are.... the best they can be.

Not being overly protective

Parents need to guide, not being overly protective, but  give their offsprings room to develop and to grow, so by their experience they gain an  understanding and appreciation for others and in turn be of service to others.

Are you ready to change your life? Let me know your thoughts
