Words of Encouragement- Encouragement Quotes

Encouragement Quotes

 Have you met him? Or have you met her?

Always happy. Always satisfied. Always upbeat.

Never a dull moment. Never sad. Never a doubt.

Never a loss or hurt. No weaknesses. No difficulties.

Does not need any help. Always knows his or her way.

Did you ever meet him or her?

I haven’t.

Therefore, this haven filled with encouragement quotesBecause somewhere, someday, someone would not mind a word of encouragement. And if we were to be totally honest with ourselves, most of us would not mind receiving some sort of encouragement every day. Any day.

Isn’t it strange? We know that it’s impossible to do it all, know it all and be it all by ourselves, and still, we try. Some of us try until we have no strength left to try!

Wherever you are on the face of this earth, chances are that there are many around you who could use an encouraging word. Like, right now. Many who would not mind a bit of help as they carry their load.

I know you are most probably carrying your own load as well. And probably you are carrying loads. I hear you.

Yet, think about this.

What if your life, experiences and abilities could be (part of) the answer to someone's need? And what if his or her life, experiences and abilities could be the key to yours? Are we willing to pay attention, exchange and receive?

Are you willing?

Am I  willing?

Willing to pause and take 1 minute a day to consider who we can reach out to. It does not even have to take much.

A word. A smile. A listening ear. Your presence. Authenticity. Being real.

Or simply paying attention to the way we use our words. Caring about more than the profit or benefit a co-worker or employee could bring us. Providing whatever it is that we promised to deliver. Keeping our end of the deal.

There is no shortage of harshness in this world. 

Are you willing to be the difference?

How do you choose to live your life?

To pull down or to build up.

To destroy or to encourage.

The choice is yours.

I hope that these encouragement quotes will inspire you to be

a positive, constructive influence.
