Live the encouragement

If you feel the need for encouragement, give it. You cannot help but be encouraged when you are encouraging others.

It is impossible for encouragement to flow only in one direction. Instead of striving to get encouragement, make it your business to live the encouragement.

Live the encouragement, in your words, in your assumptions, your attitude, your responses. Imagine the positive possibilities, then act in accordance with what you imagine.

Some situations seem to have little room for encouragement. But encouragement doesn’t require much room.

Encouragement simply asks for your presence, your caring, and your honesty. Make the moment a little more positive, and suddenly you’ve created encouragement.

You are a natural when it comes to encouragement because you can bring it forth just by being you. Live the encouragement by letting your highest thoughts, hopes and values flow out into every moment.

— Ralph Marston
