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.

POTENTIAL – Leaders look for what something/someone can become, instead of what something/someone is.

We all have POTENTIAL to be greater than we are.  Through dedication, discipline, and hard work we can reach our POTENTIAL if we are willing to sacrifice what it takes to reach it. 

Sadly, most people find a “comfort zone” and never reach their full POTENTIAL.  If we are to grow and develop, we must do things outside of our “comfort zone”. 

Join the conversation.  What are you doing to reach your POTENTIAL or helping someone else reach theirs?
