The Power of Appreciation — 3 Comments

  1. Hi Tara
    Thanks for a great series and congratulations on your accomplishment! I did not hear every broadcast, but sampled the ‘casts of greatest interest. I also loved Mike’s final session and gained the same learning as you did for the difference between appreciation and gratitude. My insight was that if we really focus on any given situation (good or bad) we can find things that we can appreciate about that situation and fundamentally change our perspective to a more positive learning perspective.
    Thanks for the series!

    • Hi Kathy

      Thank-you so much for your acknowledgement and for your insight! I totally agree with what you shared! I often say “there is a gift in everything if you are willing to look hard enough for it”. One of my favorite stories around that is about two young boys that go to their Uncle’s farm for the Summer. He immediately puts them to work in the barn, shucking out the horse stalls after a long winter of accumulation! One of the young boys is complaining and swearing under his breathe. “I thought this was going to be a summer VACATION. I can’t believe he put us to work right away. This stinks (on every level)”. Just then he notices his brother whistling and seemingly having an amazing time shucking out the stalls. “What’s got into you?”, he asks. His brother replies with a smile “With all this poop, there has to be a pony in here somewhere!”. That story always makes reminds me of the power of perspective and looking for the gift in everything!

      With appreciation,

  2. Hi there!

    I’m sorry you missed it, too! We will be having a season 2 so stay tuned! You also can still buy the upgrade package (www.broadviewcoaching/upgrade) for $97 if you want to have downloadable files for all the interviews plus some bonus interviews.

    With appreciation,
