A couple of years ago I was inspired by LIFE business co-founder Orrin Woodward to write an article on encouragement. Its a topic you can’t get too much of. Without it you can slip into hopelessness and despair and with it you can move mountains.
The root word for encourage comes from an old French word corage – which means heart. To have courage can be thought of as “to have heart.” The prefix ‘en’ in encourage means “to make or put in.” To encourage someone can be literally translated as to give heart or to put heart in someone.
Read the post from my good friend Dan Hawkins, LIFE co-founder and fellow encourager.
As I watched this video I could not help but smile and think of the all the people in the LIFE business who have encouraged me over the years. Greg was kind enough to send me this link and is a friend who has always had a smile and a kind word for me.
It will take courage to accomplish in todays world and become awesome! Encouragement is the best way to help others muster up the courage to go out and succeed in LIFE.
Enjoy this video and remember to be an encourager of others! Make 2013 your year to be awesome!
