Be Generous with Praise

Be generous with praise.

You never know when you might change someone’s life.

When I was in high school, a teacher wrote on one of my reports, “I don’t know whether to grade this or publish it.”

I still have that faded, yellowed, handwritten paper.

It confirmed my secret desire to be a writer.

And gave me hope that I just might be able to do it.

A little praise and acknowledgement can go a long way.

Be generous with it.
