Give the Gift of Encouragement
This season is the perfect time to give a gift everybody wantsâ€”and everyone needs
by John C. Maxwell
For more than a decade, I led an organization that put on an elaborate Christmas program each December. It was a big production, with over 250 people participating in more than 20 performances. By the end of the season, everyone who participated was exhausted.
Like any good Christmas show, this one included dozens of children. One particular year as I stood in the wings while the children came off the stage, I saw that they looked tired and a little discouraged. That’s when I decided to make it my mission to encourage those children and let them know what a wonderful job they were doing as they came off stage during every show.
“Good job!” I exclaimed as they marched by. “You were wonderful,” I said to one child. “I love the way you smiled at the audience,” I said to another. In the few seconds I had with them as they filed past me, I showered them with as many sincere compliments as I could.
ONE WORD CAN CHANGE A LIFE
At first, they seemed surprised and a little embarrassed as I praised them. Some looked at the ground or turned red. Only a few smiled. But after a couple of performances, I could see that they were becoming more confident. They began walking taller. More and more of them were smiling. And before long, I could see that every time as they exited the stage, they were looking for me in the wings, hoping and expecting to receive praise for the work they had done. By our final performances, they were jumping around, giving me high-fives, and cheering one another on.
Are You Using Your Gift At Work?
Each year it is estimated that US corporations lose an estimated $350 Billion due to low productivity of actively dis-engaged workers. To help people and corporations solve this problem, The Milestone Brand (TMB) co-founders, Darrayl & Derrick Miles have authored Superhuman Performance, a two-part book series emphasizing Utilizing Your Gifts to Perform at Extraordinary Levels.
In this series, the Miles brothers called on their friends who many regard as some of the worldâ€™s most powerful leaders and influential personalities to partner with them to â€œTransform Organizations and the Lives of Millions of People around the World.â€
