Encourage Others

Make yourself a blessing to someone. Your kind smile or pat on the back just might pull someone back from the edge.
Carmelia Elliot

A word of encouragement during a failure is worth more than an hour of praise after success.
Anonymous

The really great man is the man who makes every man feel great.
G.K. Chesterton

If you want to change people without giving offense or arousing resentment, use encouragement.
Dale Carnegie

So often we think that to be encouragers we have to produce great words of wisdom when, in fact, a few simple syllables of sympathy and an arm around the shoulder can often provide much needed comfort.
Florence Littauer

Christian Living

Our love of God is tested by the question of whether we seek Him or His gifts.
Ralph Sockman

The fullest, most meaningful way in which to experience life is to live in a relationship with God through the power and grace afforded us by Jesus.
Tom Osborne

The Lord has meant a great deal to me. I became a Christian one year before I took over the Dallas Cowboys and He’s been with me all these days here in Dallas and has meant a tremendous amount to me.
Tom Landry

That big smile people see on the outside comes from a place deep within me that isn’t affected by any of those day-to-day matters.
Mary Lou Retton

I have played and lived one way my whole life – full speed ahead, on my own terms, in my own strength and brushing aside any hint of personal heartache, fear or frailty. Looking back, it is easy to see why that approach was destined to leave me alone, empty and without hope. I now know there is a better way. God’s way.
Michelle Akers

The Power of a Smile

I have witnessed the softening of the hardest of hearts by a simple smile.
Goldie Hawn

No one who smiles is homely.
Robert Half

What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but, scattered along life’s pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.
Joseph Addison

As long as you live, keep smiling because it brightens everybody’s day.
Vin Scully

The humble daisy by the wayside has cheered many load-weary travelers. Common birds bring joy and gladness to many hearts as they fill the air with sweet song. Be the best of which you are capable. Try each day to make a smile grow where nary a one grew before. And with each low descending sun there will be at least two people in the world who will be glad and one of them will be you.
John Price

Effective Communication

Communication is less about speaking than about listening.
Rick Pitino

A genius knows how to make himself easily understood without being obvious about it.
Jean Anouilh

Discern where it is that you and your wife or children most easily talk – your bed, their bed, the couch, the car, the back yard, wherever – and return to that setting often.
Paul Lewis

Ninety percent of the friction of daily life is caused by tone of voice.
Arnold Bennett

Look people in the eye and smile. Your message goes where your voice goes, and your voice goes where your eyes send it. Eye contact validates the person and engenders trust. Smiling makes you appear happy and confident.
Nicholas Boothman

The Power of a Smile

Smiling conveys self-acceptance and an accepting attitude toward others. It increases others’ confidence in themselves and in you. Smiling makes you appear approachable, friendly, relaxed, open and comfortable.
Roger Crawford

Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

I used to be very self-conscious. I used to wish I was pretty. My cousin Georgia always taught me that if you smile, people will like you.
Ella Fitzgerald

Smile if it kills you. The physiology of smiling diffuses a lot of anger and angst. It makes your body and soul feel better.
Tom Peters

The smile reaches down deeply and relaxes us. A doctor would not be able to find anything in his medicine bag that takes effect so quickly, so harmoniously.
Alain

How to Give

The best servant does his work unseen.
Oliver Wendell Holmes

Find out where you can render a service, and then render it. The rest is up to the Lord.
S.S. Kresge

Always smile when you give service or anything else, no matter how much it hurts.
Harvey Penick

The greatest service we can perform for others is to help them to help themselves.
Horace Mann

Whenever we do good for others anonymously, our sense of intrinsic worth and self-respect increases. Moreover, we gain insight into the worth of others by serving them without expectation of publicity or reward. Selfless service has always been one of the most powerful methods of influence.
Stephen Covey
