The 5 Cs of Acknowledgment

1. Consciousness: Become Conscious of the acknowledgments and gratitude that you already have in your mind and spirit.

2. Choice: It is your Choice whether to deliver the acknowledgment or to merely keep it floating around in your mind. Choose “yes” whenever possible!

3. Courage: It is courageous to deliver heartfelt and authentic acknowledgment—it makes us vulnerable. If you feel that you need to summon Courage, you are on the right track!

4. Communication: Determine the best way to reach your recipient. It is simple to Communicate your gratitude and appreciation once you choose to do so.
