Words of Encouragement

MEDiAHEAD: Words of Encouragementword of encouragement can help to calm us and make us stop to analyze what’s going on in our life. It has the power to make us see the situation from a better perspective.

Have you ever known someone who believed in you, someone who frequently spoke words of encouragement and praise? The kind of person who made you feel you could do it, whatever it was?

Several years ago, when I was going through a particularly scary period in my business, my father started sending me letters with words of encouragement and pictures that he drew.

He used phrases like Go Girl Go, WE ALL Knew you could make it, Today is Good- TOMORROW WILL BE BETTER!

And finally, this letter when things got better:


“I don’t know what you DID…but I think you DID GOOD! You went down on the count of 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 and then you rose up to living and came (ROARING) back.


Signed, A Proud Father

I will always treasure these letters and I have them hanging in my office along with all the other words of encouragement that clients and friends have sent me.

MEDiAHEAD: Words of EncouragementNow more than ever…

I think right now, more than ever, we need to have words of encouragement around us.

There will be times we feel powerless and out of control — but we can fill that space with kindness and be a part of the solution to a world problem. We can create healing by learning how to be kind and take care of each other and ourselves during this time.

Let’s all make a plan to check on our friends and clients and try to lift them up with encouraging words right now.
