Praise

Posted: January 20, 2011 in Uncategorized

As water is to flowers – so is praise to the
heart of man. We thrive on being appreciated,
loved and needed. When we make others feel
important, and show them respect and praise,
they do their best. Nothing stimulates growth so
much as praise. Whatever we praise, we increase.

We increase whatever we praise. The whole
creation responds to praise, and is glad.
To say, well done to any bit of good work is
to take hold of the powers which have made the
effort and strengthen them beyond our knowledge!
The deepest principle in human nature is the craving to be appreciated.
If human beings are perceived as potentials
rather than problems, as possessing strengths
instead of weakness, as unlimited rather than
dull and unresponsive, then they thrive and
grow to their capabilities.
We are all motivated by a keen desire for praise,
and the better a man is, the more he is inspired by
glory. The very philosophers themselves, even in
those books which they write in contempt of glory,
inscribe their names.
There is no investment you can make which will pay
you so well as the effort to scatter sunshin
