There is nothing more soul destroying than criticism, constructive or otherwise. Encouragement however, brings out the best in us. We all have a need to be appreciated, recognised and loved, and what better way than when someone is there saying something along the lines of
- You can do it
- I believe in you
- You are doing great
Receiving encouragement lifts and inspires us, and giving encouragement rewards us by making a difference in the life of someone else. Love is therefore flowing in both directions. A win, win for all concerned.
“Encouragement is love in a different form. Lead with encouragement not criticism”Cheryl Mary Coleman
