When I woke up this morning, the word encourage popped into my head. According to Webster, encourage means to “inspire with courage, spirit, or hope”. So I think we should inspire one another at every opportunity. But the key is to do it with courage. Don’t let your insecurities stop you from inspiring someone else. Everyone has something to offer so be courageous! Also encourage with a genuine spirit. People can quickly see when you are just blowing smoke or tooting your own horn. Focus on the other person and not yourself and be genuine. Lastly reinforce the hope of a brighter future and better things to come. FDR said “when you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on”.
Inspire with courage, spirit, AND hope!
