Who can you encourage today?
What would happen if today you paid attention? Listened for the dream in someone else’s heart? Encouraged her to take the first step?
What would happen to her? To you? To the world?
“When you encourage others, you in the process are encouraged because you’re making a commitment and difference in that person’s life. Encouragement really does make a difference.” ~Zig Ziglar
Each of us really does have the power to change the world for the better by encouraging one another to be our best selves.
This is the real power of a life – to be a life-changing force for others by the way we honor their dreams, the way we cheer them on, the way we believe in them and tell them so.
It may seem like it takes money or fame to make an impact in the world, but that’s just not true.
The biggest impact we can make is to honor the struggles, dreams, and accomplishments of each other.
You may never know what your words of encouragement have accomplished in a life. You may never see that your belief in someone ignited a flame of hope. You may never know that your honoring someone’s dream helped bridge the gap between giving it up, and giving it one more try.
“A gift that costs no money but one that costs time and your attention is giving someone words of encouragement.” ~Catherine Pulsifer
You do have the power to change the world. And so do I. And no, it doesn’t take money or fame or power or luck. All it takes is a listening ear and a heart that wants the best for each other. All it takes is a word or two of encouragement.
So what would happen if today you paid attention and listened for the dream in someone else’s heart?
What would happen if you encouraged just one person to take the first step, the next step, and to keep on stepping?
I think the world would change.
