The Gift …..

The Gift of Praise
Appropriate mention, right in front of the other
fellow, of superior qualities or of a
job or deeds well done.

Today I learnt a really good lesson which I thought I should share ,I dont know who wrote it but if truely followed  you will reap great benefit …

 

The Gift of Consideration
Putting yourself in the other’s shoes and
thus providing your genuine understanding
of his side of the case.

The Gift of Concession
Humbly saying at just the right point,
“I am sorry, you are right and I am wrong.”

The Gift of Gratitude
Never forgetting to say “Thank You”
and never failing to mean it.

The Gift of Attention
When the other fellow speaks, listen attentively.
If his words are directed to you
personally, meet his eye squarely.

The Gift of Inspiration
Plant seeds of courage and action
in the other person’s heart.

The Gift of Personal Presence
In sickness, in trouble, or in great joy,
there is nothing quite equal to your
personal expression of sympathy or
congratulations.

Resolve to give these gifts
each day.. You will be pleasantly surprised
at what you will receive in return.

  1. Truely a great set of gifts!
    It reminded me of a poem from my 5th Grade and a chapter from my 10th grade which were on the same lines…the poem talked about “The gift of personal presence” and the chapter talked about “The gift of gratitude”!
