As we welcome the New Year, let us take a moment to inspire and motivate those who are working to improve their lives in any way they can, whether it be health, wealth, happiness, love, or simply making the bed each day. Let’s celebrate it.
Let’s normalize becoming a source of strength and support to help each other reach out fullest potential.
Let’s use this New Year to encourage and uplift those who are striving to do, be, and become better. Let’s lend a helping hand and spread positivity to encourage them to achieve their goals.
All living things crave recognition and validation for achievements. No matter how big or small they may be. It’s natural to want to be appreciated for our efforts and hard work. However, we often forget that others around us also need that same validation and encouragement.
Cheering others on for their accomplishments, no matter how small, can significantly impact their lives. It can be as simple as congratulating a friend on finishing a book, supporting a co-worker who has just completed a challenging project, or having a dance party over a clean room. When we take the time to acknowledge and celebrate the successes of both ourselves and those around us, we help to create a positive and uplifting environment that encourages everyone to thrive and want to do even more good.
One of the most important things we can do to support others is to actively listen to them. When someone shares their wishes, desires, and accomplishments with us, we should take the time to let them know we are interested in their success. Take a moment to hear their stories and ask questions to allow them to go deeper than surface level so that you hear the real struggle of it all. Offer congratulations and celebrations for each achievement that leads to big wins.
Accomplishments are never just one effort.
They are years in the making.
Remember, it’s important to understand that accomplishments are not always the outcome of a single effort. It usually takes hundreds of trials and errors to achieve. Think of the efforts and determinations you have put in to reach your own accomplishments.
The more effort the bigger the accomplishment.
Being a safe and caring space for people to share both successes and failures nurtures trust and strengthens relationships.
So, how can you better support others this new year? Ask yourself what you need. Whatever would make you feel more supported, heard, loved, and cared for, then do that for others. BE THAT FOR OTHERS.
Let’s Bring High Fives Back!
Offer genuine encouragement using specific supportive words when someone is facing a challenge or working towards a goal; a simple high five and “You can do it!” can go a long way. Highlight the strengths and abilities of the person you are supporting and remind them what they are made of.
Bonus points if you stop right there and pray aloud with someone for their worries, concerns, and fears. Also, stop and say a prayer of thanks for all the wins with them.
Let’s help to create a culture of celebration by recognizing and appreciating the accomplishments of others publicly. Whether it’s a like, comment, or share with a shoutout on social media or a mention at a team meeting, taking the time to acknowledge the achievements of others publicly can help to create a positive and supportive environment for all. And like a lighthouse in a dark sea, I guarantee your public encouragement will attract supportive and caring people into your life and create the positive impacting environment you need the most.
Your Vibe Attracts Your Tribe.
Let’s make a conscious effort to support and uplift each other and make the world a better place, one high-five at a time. 💞
