ENCOURAGE or DISCOURAGE
(from Daily Fuel for LIFE and LEADERSHIP)

How often have you ever been told that you cannot do something?  Have you ever been discriminated against because of your gender, religion, age, sexual orientation, or even race?  When these things happen it is very discouraging, defeating, and down right degrading when it happens.  Would you agree or disagree?

Instead of discouraging someone, my challenge to you is to encourage someone.  By giving someone a “can do” attitude, you will have enabled them to believe in themselves, and accomplish more than they ever thought they could had you disabled them with negative comments or actions.

I like to look at “encouraging or discouraging” others as “enabling or disabling” others.  When you discourage someone, you disable them. But, when you encourage someone, you enable them.  Be an enabler, not a dis-abler.  You never know you may have to rely on that other person one day to help enable you.

Are you a STAR?

Someone That Anyone Recognizes. Don’t hesitate to allow your talents to shine through. Are you easily recognized for your efforts and abilities within your organization?

If you are a STAR, then everyone knows your capabilities and will use them. Otherwise, you will just be tasked out with random things that are not in sync with your ability and capability. Work to your strengths and make yourself recognizable within your organization, make yourself a STAR.

There is nothing wrong with standing out in a particular area. Sure, every time that one or few things you are a STAR at needs to be done, everyone will come to you to get it done, but there is nothing wrong with being specialized in something.Let it be known that you are good at something and you will be a valuable asset to your team or organization. Be a STAR.
