Research confirms the power of encouragement and positive affirmation by parents and teachers and the difference it can make in a life. Everyone has a story about that one teacher that could see their hidden potential and encouraged them to step out of their comfort zone and take the next step in life.

Delaine Eastin, a former California state school superintendent, was a shy student until a drama teacher encouraged her to try out for the play. A single comment by a single teacher, who saw potential in Delaine, inspired a passionate career of public office, education and speaking. Never underestimate the power of one.

Look around you…every day you have a choice to make a difference in someone’s life.
Every person you meet suffers disappointment or a setback and needs encouragement.

Genuine caring and knowing how to inspire others brings meaning and purpose to your life and gives you influence in your world.

You can make a difference with your words.
