If someone has touched your life in a positive way, please let them know. As an author, speaker, educator, and victory coach, my primary goal is to help others recognize their value and maximize their potential. With the help of mentors and coaches, I have been able to reach my goals quicker and easier. For this reason, I understand the importance of social support. After overcoming low confidence, I can now look in the mirror and say “I am beautiful.” With newly found courage, I can stand before an audience and share some of the secrets that have held my happiness hostage for years. However, what I cannot do is read the minds of the people whom I pour into on a daily basis.
Has someone encouraged you when you were feeling hopeless? Has someone inspired you? If so, please send them a thank-you note or give them a quick call to say thanks. The individual that took the time to encourage or inspire you might just be feeling down today. They might be feeling as though the work that they do is in vain. In fact, they might be thinking about giving up on their mission. However, hearing how they have made a positive impact on your life can provide the boost that they need. Your testimony can be exactly what they need to continue their mission and their assignment. God sends people our way for a reason. If someone has made a difference in your life, please let them know how much you appreciate them. Your words will help refuel their energy and reaffirm the need for their service to others. You never know what someone might be experiencing. This week I challenge you to give someone a few words of encouragement. Until next time…..
