When times are tough and people are worn down by the uncertainty of life, what do you do?
One of the easiest pick-me-ups and gifts to give, and the most appreciated, is your praise.
An affirmation of a job well done. A hearty thanks for a gift given… time and energy invested. It is a gift… and a rare one indeed.
When was the last time you received this precious and valuable gift? When was the last time you gave it… to your spouse, your children and grandchildren, your colleagues, your donors?
This is one gift you can’t bankrupt yourself by giving away too much. The more you give your praise, the more people will be attracted to you.
However, you must cultivate the habit of giving praise.
Who can you give praise to today?
Even the guy who parks your car or serves you coffee. Look for and reward a job well done with a cool, thirst-quenching cup of praise.
“When I chased after money, I never had enough. When I got my life on purpose and focused on giving of myself and everything that arrived into my life, then I was prosperous.”
– Wayne Dyer
