Encouraging Words Can Transform

Author Jon Gordon says ” Believe in others more than they believe in themselves and you will be more than a coach/teacher/leader. You will be a transformer of lives.”

My experience is we often neglect describing what we think of others.

We forget to say how much we care.

We forget to acknowledge the talent we see.

We don’t recognize the effort put forth.

We don’t describe the potential we see.

Not often enough.

Gordon’s quote reminds me of the power of the encouraging word. It reminds me of the power of an attitude of gratitude expressed toward others. It reminds me of the awesome opportunity I have everyday to transform the lives of others.
