Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Encouragement . . . . Just Do It

Encouragement . . . . Just Do It

Encouragement . . . . Just Do It

“Flatter me, and I may not believe you.

Criticize me, and I may not like you.

Ignore me, and I may not forgive you.

Encourage me, and I will not forget you.”

William Arthur Ward 1921 – 1994, American Author, Editor,

Pastor, Teacher and One of the Most Quoted Writer




As I see it. . . . . . . .

Encouragement . . . . Just Do It


When you encourage others you help to build their self-confidence . . . . and they will stretch themselves as a result of your encouragement.


Encouraging others cheers the person up . . . . and can make their day.


The people that you encourage will appreciate your kind actions . . . . and will not forget you for your kindness. 


Encouraging others can change the course of a person’s life . . . . That puts them on a path that they did not recognize as being available to them prior to the encouragement.


Build people up with encouragement . . . . It will support more weight on their success journey . . . . and help them to support your success journey. Encourage others for maximum impact in their life.


Encouragement . . . . Just Do It

When I owned retail stores I had a mentor that told me the only two thinks to do with employees is either compliment them or fire them. Constantly harping on them does not work.
