I recently told a student in our Coach Training program “you can do it!” That is not a profound life changing statement, or is it? Apparently, it impacted the student greatly and another student commented on it as well. Her comment to me was “you have no idea what a simple statement like that could mean to someone. Apparently someone had recently told her –“you can’t do that!”
Incredible isn’t it? The things we say and even the things we listen too. Someone’s breakthrough could happen with just a few words of encouragement like” you can do it!”
So how are you at handing out words of encouragement? More importantly, how are you at being your own cheerleader? Next time you are feeling down or discouraged, maybe you need to say to yourself “you CAN do it” and more importantly, pass it along!
