From time to time, we all need a few words of encouragement.
The thing is, people in need of encouragement do not always tell us. On the outside, they may seem fine. Confident and courageous even. However, on the inside, they may really need to hear our words of encouragement. They could be at a crossroads, about to quit or desperately looking for external confirmation that they can turn things around.
Become a catalyst of encouragement
We often underestimate how important our words are, to others. Think about it, even a smile from a stranger can lift our spirits, let alone some words of encouragement from someone we know. I believe we all have the ability to leave the people around us in a better position, than before we spoke to them.
- If you have faith in a person’s ability, tell them.
- If you value their input, tell them.
- If you think they look great, tell them.
- If they have impressed or inspired you lately, tell them.
Sometimes, just a few words of encouragement can make a world of difference, to someone who needs to hear them. Why not make them your words?
