How much more grievous are the consequences of anger than the causes of it.

Appreciation

There’s a way you can instantly make anything you have more valuable. All you have to do is more fully appreciate it.

The more you appreciate your skills, the more useful they become. The more you appreciate the people around you, the more helpful and enjoyable they become.

Appreciate your circumstances, and you’ll get more out of them. Appreciate the challenges, and you’ll transform them into achievements.

There’s a word commonly used to describe a financial, real estate or other asset that has gained value. That asset is said to have undergone appreciation.

Yet appreciation is about more than an increase in monetary value. By offering your own appreciation, you can add richness to every part of your world.

Consider all the good things in your life, and even the not-so-good things. Give them more appreciation, and they will all grow in positive value.

— Ralph Marston
