Encourage Others with Acts of Kindness
by Dale Brown
Most people will not reach their full potential without somebody else believing in them. We should be encouraging people, building them up, challenging them to reach for new heights. People should feel challenged and inspired after spending time with you.
Take time to make a difference in people’s lives. Don’t just obsess about how you can make your own life better. our attitude should be: Who can i encourage today? Who can i build up? How can i improve somebody else’s life?
Somebody needs your encouragement. Somebody needs to know that you believe in them. If you look back over your life—who believed in you and helped you get to where you are today?
Now, it’s your turn to do something similar for somebody else. Who are you believing in? Who are you helping to become successful?
There’s no greater investment in life than in being a people builder. am i improving somebody’s life, giving that person confidence, or am i just coasting along, doing my own thing? Take a look at your life and you be the judge of what you are doing to help someone else succeed.
True giving is done with no other motive than to try to make someone else’s life better. it does not have to be with financial assistance but with a word of encouragement and interest in helping another human being improve their life. real happiness begins where selfishness ends.
Jackie robinson said, “The only real measure of the stature of a life is its positive impact upon other lives.”
