Today, focus on encouraging others.
Encouragement can take many forms. Phrases like "Keep going! You can do this!" or probing questions such as "What's holding you back? What can you change? What's your next move?" can be powerful motivators.
The only challenge is knowing when your words are welcomed.
The true art of encouragement lies in discerning when to offer words and when to simply offer an ear. Sometimes, the most meaningful support is saying, "I'm here, and I'm listening," or asking, "How can I help?" This opens a space for understanding someone's needs rather than what you think they need.
Realize, with relief, that you don't hold all the answers, and instead, concentrate on being present and supportive, gently holding the space for others to navigate their own paths.
