We all need encouragement, don’t we?

It is so easy to talk down to people, to insult someone, never to praise a person for work well done, isn’t it? But, I think that we all need encouragement. I want to kick myself when I say something without thinking it through, but words cannot be retracted, can they? So, I have spent a great deal of time trying to put together all the positive words of encouragement that I could think of and here are some of them.

Some phrases that display confidence are:

I know you’ll be fine. You can handle it.

Phrases that recognize effort and improvement:

It took a lot of courage for you to follow through. I can see that.

You have achieved a great deal.

I can see that you put a lot of work into that.

Phrases that display acceptance”

I’m pleased that you are doing that course. It will help you.

You look so happy. I am pleased for you.

Phrases that acknowledge appreciation:

Thanks for helping. You made that work so much easier for me. I appreciate the effort you put into it.

By speaking this way to a person who is unsure of himself/herself, you boost their  morale and it can make a huge difference to their self image.
