Encouragement

Monday, April 11, 2011

What would we all do without this important part of life? Isn't this part of what keeps us going at work? Think about the last time you were having a bad day and then heard a simple encouraging word from a boss or co-worker... I'll bet it made a difference in your outlook for the day!

Now think about how often you encourage those you love. Do you build up your family members with kind words to let them know they are appreciated? This may turn the tide in a relationship with a child or spouse. I know it works wonders in my life. If you practice this regularly - you may just get some encouraging words coming back your way.

We are all capable of changing someone's day for the better. Take the challenge and make an effort to build someone up today!

    My favorite encouraging quote:

Flatter me, and I may not believe you.
Criticize me, and I may not like you.
Ingore me, and I may not forgive you.
Encourage me, and I will not forget you.
-William Arthur Ward

    Great idea! You must first believe in yourself to believe in others! If we all take one moment just to say thank you, we could make at least one person's day - so thank you for writing in Spark today. You will touch others with your kind remarks.

  Thank you for those words... I try to live by them everyday! What a difference it makes to see someone smile because of few words of encouragement!!!
