If you want your children to improve, let them overhear the nice things you say about them to others.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
When you have once seen the glow of happiness on the face of a beloved person, you know that a man can have no vocation but to awaken that light on [all] the faces surrounding him.
You need to be aware of what others are doing, applaud their efforts, acknowledge their successes, and encourage them in their pursuits. When we all help one another, everybody wins.
Pretend that every single person you meet has a sign around his or her neck that says, Make Me Feel Important. Not only will you succeed in sales, you will succeed in life.
Mary Kay Ash
Each person has an ideal, a hope, a dream which represents the soul. We must give to it the warmth of love, the light of understanding and the essence of encouragement.

Personal Stories About ‘Encouragement’
Notes Of EncouragementSubmitted by Diane
The charter school my children attend promotes learning 9 different moral character traits that change monthly. I volunteered to create a bulletin board each month that would help explain and highlight the different moral character traits. One of the traits is encouragement. I wanted to do something that would...
Love BombSubmitted by Cleaves M. Bennett MD
I parked my car in the large crowded lot and walked toward the supermarket. A blond woman passed me pushing a nearly full cart to her car. She smiled at me and said hello. I did the same. She was a plain Jane, probably in her 40s. She reached her car and began unloading her groceries. I walked back toward her and...
ConcertSubmitted by Cris
I don't have a story to tell, but want to thank you for the ad on Fox TV which airs every morning. It was just on again and I got a lump in my throat again watching it. It shows a little boy playing the piano at a concert and the theme is Encouragement. I look forward to it every morning. What a wonderful way to...
Stories About Everyday Heroes Who Portray ‘Encouragement’
Kim PSubmitted by Dave Poedubicky
My hero is my wife. I am a 41 year old colon cancer survivor. She did not let me feel like a victim, and her love helped me persevere. She was strong when I couldn't be. She gave me hope when I thought the worst. She let my cry, but didn't cry herself. It was only after my ordeal was over, did I understand how...
Unknown SoldierSubmitted by Irene Fahrberger
I can't even remember my hero's name, but not a day goes by that I don't think of him. We were stuck overnight in a bus station in the middle of downtown Detroit in a fairly bad section. It was the only place to go and we had been told that it was open 24 hours. When we got there, however, we were told that...

If you leave behind a single vestige of your passage - let it be encouragement. No single relic costs so little and has such worth.
An act, a gesture, a helping hand. A positive word placed correctly can produce results unknown or realized in your time. The germination of a thought or an action in others can be produced years later on this invisible chain.
Be secure with your words for they can both help and harm with exponential power. Your interactions can be devastating in their consequences,unrelated to your motives. Both self esteem and potential can fall victim to a misplaced word or action. Unknown accomplishments may go unrealized by self confidence misplaced.
Be wise, that what is contained in others remains unknown and private,needing to be respected or left untouched. Your dealings should be free of self interest or intention. For like any contact the sensation will be unique for both. Rewards may be exclusive, never shared or directly tied. Let the best direction for your actions be as the Hippocratic oath commands “First do no Harm”

Just saw your 'Twinkle, Twinkle' advert. Beginning had me cringing, as expected, but by the end I had a lump in my throat. Beautiful, much needed campaign. Thank you.
GREAT DAY, Thank you for the little boy at the piano. The word of "ENCOURAGEMENT" is 1 of the foundations our house will be built on with LOVE and INTEGRITY

I appreciate your spot that reminds us to treat each other encouragingly. Alfred Adler said children need encouragement like plants need water. I think children are not alone in this.
William A., Minnesota
Never underestimate the impact that your belief and faith in someone can have on their life. That kind of goodness is so powerful that it, alone, can turn the tide of the world.
Thank you so much for this beautiful organization and for inspiring me.
I would like you to show a video where a little school child is crying because of a little bully and a kind teacher stands up for him. Thanks for all you do for others. You are #1
Maria P, Miami, Florida
There is a very valuble class that i believe our president should implement in schools several times throughout the learning experience called Love and Logic. It teaches people how to handle situations and learn from them without the use of pain and put downs. We should all come together to put this in action in all schools today. These tools of encouragement are probably the most effective way to a better life.
Jana A, California
I just saw the spot on encouragement with the little boy at the piano. It left me with such a great feeling that the mastro took that moment to augment the feeling that the little boy was feeling. Thanks for such a positive spot.
