Older Lady in Pearls Paying Rapt Attention to Man At Party

We all want, or need, to find words for motivation every day. The problem is where to find them.

Of course there are plenty of authors and speakers who can give us the words for motivation we require but too often the people we meet face to face on a daily basis can undermine any positivity we get in this way.

There are ways to deal with those who seem to do there best to ruin our day but to me the key is to never, ever do the same to others. If each of us can make point to give words for motivation to everyone we meet it has two benefits.

Make Others Feel Important.

Firstly, I believe we all affect everyone we meet every day in either a good way or a bad way. This gives us a huge responsibility to help provide words for motivation to others. Even a cheery ‘hello’ to someone can make a big difference to their day – it may be the only thing you say to them but you might be surprised how much a small greeting can have a big effect.

I remember having a feeling low one day. It seemed everything was going wrong and I was in a bad mood. I made the mistake of listening to the news too and that hardly improved things. The car needed some fuel and, considering the rising price of petrol, that did not improve my attitude. I duly filled the car’s tank and went to the office to pay.

The attendant behind the desk was sunny and ebullient and her ‘good morning’ was as effective as a whole host of words for motivation. Just a few seconds in her company changed my mood altogether. Her smile was infectious.

But it is not just about being cheerful. People who have the biggest impact on others, and subsequently achieve so much, have the skill of making those they meet feel important.

Philosopher William James wrote, “The deepest principle in human nature is the craving to be appreciated” and he was right. We all like to feel we count and the person who can do that will provide the words for motivation for them to have a much better day.

How do we make people feel important?

Actually it is very easy. Learn and use a person’s name: it is a great compliment to someone to treat him or her as an individual and everyone loves to be addressed by his or her name.

In these times of easily available technology, many of us have forgotten one of the most important principles of dealing with people: when you are with somebody, be with them. I learned this lesson from successful businessman Jerry Scriven, who would shut out all distractions when he was in conversation with you. Doing this has a magically positive effect on the other person, as much as any words for motivation.

Another great entrepreneur, Mary Kay Ash, put it this way, “Everyone has an invisible sign hanging from their neck saying, ‘Make me feel important.’ Never forget this message when working with people.”

Give Yourself Words For Motivation Too.

Treating other people well has a great effect on you too. It is true that, if you criticize another person, the act takes away a bit of you too. By the same token, if you make somebody feel good about themselves, it improves your day too.

Treat others right and you will automatically feel the benefit yourself. Have you ever done a good deed for someone else? You will know how you felt afterwards.

No doubt we will return to the subject of skills with people but it is worth remembering the effects of your words and actions have on others every day.

Spread words for motivation and happiness around you and you will be surprised how the world will seem sunnier and easier for you and those you meet.

“Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.”
