Encouragement 101


Everyone appreciates a little encouragement, but for some reason, we dont give it as much as we expect to get it.

Encouraging others is contagious. If you encourage someone, you will both feel good and in turn that person will be more likely to also encourage others.

If someone comes to you and tells you something they are excited about, it helps to be excited with them, even if you arent really. :)

If someone tells you something they are excited about, be extremely careful not to "one-up" them, which means you tell them something similar that makes their achievement look smaller.

It is hard to be wrong when you are trying to emotionally uplift someone.
