Positive Encouraging Sayings to Motivate You

Whenever you see an employee or coworker doing a great job, be willing to make the effort to let him/her know you appreciate the good work that's being done. Simple words of appreciation, sincerely stated, are extremely powerful, highly appreciated and have important, positive consequences.

Have you ever thanked your husband for "choosing you" above
all other women? He found you attractive as a person, and appreciated you. Though
many circumstances in your marriage may have changed, let your husband know that
you are glad God led you together, and that you want to be a blessing to him for the rest
of your marriage. Let him know that he can trust you to be in his corner.

Do you bring sunshine or gloom into the room? If you are a negative person, don't say, "I'm just a worrier. I was born that way." Or, "It’s my nature to be depressed." God is in the personality-changing business. He wants you to "be conformed to the likeness of his Son" (Romans 8:29). You can change. You can become known for your encouraging words.

Have you ever noticed? … when your boss praises your work or encourages you in the morning, how delighted you are! You feel like pouring your heart in the work you do, even if there is no other good reason. The words of praise keep ringing sweet bells in your ears throughout the day. In the evening, you even tell your wife about it.

It is easier to memorize, and subsequently repeat, positively experienced images. There is plenty of time to discuss/practice things that need to be improved the next day by viewing objective films or gaining feedback from others. What is most important is to reinforce the positive aspects of performance immediately after the event, since focusing on things to improve the next time, or things that were not liked about performance, increases the chances of "choking" or performing worse in the future.

Think of work as a vocation. It should be something that calls to you as something you want to do, and it should be something that gives voice to who you are and what you want to say to the world. It is, above all else, something that lets you love.
Kent Nerburn, Letters to My Son

Words can be deadly weapons or protective layers of love. Words, thoughts and expressions send out a vibration into the universe. What we say and think about we bring about. Encouragement is an ongoing blessing. The underlying message is “keep going, you are on the right path.” It is an ever moving process, with an eye for the future and a vision of achievement.
