How To Give Encouragement To Someone

In life, there are times and situations that we may think of giving up because we don’t have the courage to fight the situation or challenge. Thus, encouragement is very important. 


Encouragement can give us the strength to look ahead, move forward, and reach for the next goal. The whole emotional tone of a tough situation can be transformed through encouragement. 


Put another way, encouragement can help us do the things that we might not ordinarily do.


September 12th recognizes the Day of Encouragement each year. This day is dedicated to uplifting people around us and making a positive impact.


Offering encouragement to someone is free. It never costs us anything to say a few words to inspire a family member, coworker, or friend. Even a reassuring word to a stranger may make a difference in their lives.


Encouragement lifts up someone when they are down. It also motivates a person who has an eye on a goal. When we’ve failed, the right words remind us to keep trying. A little dedication to finding the right message may create a spark that changes a loved one’s perspective. 


Sometimes, the act of noticing a job well done improves someone’s day. Developing a habit of recognizing emerging talents motivates us to speak up and offer a kind word or helpful tip. It’s a practice worth having, to improve relationships at work, home, and in the world around us. There really is no simpler way. 


So, since this Sunday is the Day of Encouragement, let’s make deliberate acts of encouragement. 


You can practice providing reassurance and inspiration to the people around you. Below are some very simple gestures that you can try: 


  • High five someone for a job well done. 
  • Take notice when a friend is getting close to a hard-earned goal, encouraging them to keep going. 
  • Send a card or give a call or text to a family member who may be struggling. Remind them how important they are to you. 


After all, you will feel great too by giving encouragement to others!
