One of the biggest lessons I ever learned fit on a Post-It note. Back in 1994, I worked with a delightful woman named Lana. Very positive, gentle and bright. I stopped by her cubicle one day to ask a question and spied a yellow Post-It note pinned above her phone with these three words:
Be An Encourager
That’s all. Be an encourager. A powerful message–I knew instantly exactly what it meant and I’ve carried that simple message for 20 years.
“You can do it.”
“It will be OK.”
“I believe in you.”
“Go on, Girl!”
“You’ve done scarier stuff than this.”
“Just keep swimming.”
Give Lana’s advice a try today! You can do it!
