change a life forever

If we’re going to bring out the best in people, we, too, need to sow seeds of encouragement. – Joel Osteen

The right word said at the right time can inspire or encourage someone. The perfect words can provide hope or just give someone a boost when their energy is flagging.

For all walks of life, here are a few words of encouragement for the person in your life who can use it. Maybe it’s you.

1. To make the first step toward change, you must begin – To paraphrase the Lao-tzu quote: the journey of a thousand miles starts with one step. To finish successfully, you have to get started. There is no time like the present.

2. Let go of the bad and focus on the good – Positive energy and a positive attitude will get you a lot further. Let go of what you can’t change and, instead, look to what you can change. Choose to dwell on things that are going well.

3. “Peace comes from within; don’t seek it without,” Buddha – This wise quote makes great advice. Material possessions, external circumstances, other people’s behavior–nothing will make you happy from the outside. Happiness starts with your own heart and soul.

4. Without the struggle, there is no strength – You can’t build strength without a little heavy lifting. Storms and tribulations will come; but you will out the other side stronger and better than ever.
