Everyone needs encouragement. As small children our parents encouraged us to take our first steps. They smiled and held out their arms to us in invitation. If we fell, our parents stood us back up and encouraged us to try again. “You can do it,” they cheered.
We continued to benefit from the encouragement of parents and teachers as we entered school, participated in athletics, studied difficult subjects, and chose college programs. The teachers who encouraged us the most became our favorites. We thrived in their classes.
The need for positive reinforcement does not end when one receives a diploma. The need never lessens.
You can make a lasting impact for good in the lives of those around you by cheering them on. The greatest help you can give to people in the midst of challenge is to help them realize that they can triumph. Instruction helps, but encouragement lifts.
When you add pressure or express doubt about their abilities, you leave them with feelings of discouragement and futility. Discouraging words weaken, and they can make tough times more difficult. Very few can succeed in the absence of encouragement.
People love to be in the company of encouraging people. Positive energy attracts people. When we show confidence in others they feel more confident and are more likely to press forward. Most people need the encouragement of others when facing opposition.
