Power of Words and Actions

Posted by Mrs. W. on Jan 24, 2011

All of us communicate with others with our words. The words we use though have the power to build other people up or tear them down.  I’m sure you know exactly what I’m talking about.

Words/Actions That Tear Down Words/Actions That Build Up
“You can’t do that!” “Way to go!”
“You didn’t do that well.” “I like the way you….”
Making fun of someone “I believe in you.”
Teasing Pat on the back
Criticizing another person High 5!
Putting someone down Being Supportive
Pointing out faults Encouraging someone

So, there are ways that you can make someone feel better, encourage them and inspire them to be the best they can be. You  also have the power to tear someone down. What kind of person do you want to be?

Feel free to share a comment about a time when someone inspired and encouraged you to be the best you can be and to believe in yourself. Remember, you ALWAYS have a choice!

Inspire greatness!!!!!!!!!!!
