Affirm

Richard Branson

Spend more time smiling than frowning and more time praising than criticizing.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

A man is known by the books he reads, by the company he keeps, by the praise he gives…

Norman Vincent Peale

The trouble with most of us is that we would rather be ruined by praise than saved by criticism.

Dale Carnegie

You have it easily in your power to increase the sum total of this world’s happiness now. How? By giving a few words of sincere appreciation to someone who is lonely of discouraged. Perhaps you will forget tomorrow the kind words you say today, but the recipient may cherish them over a lifetime.

Gregory & Lisa Popcak

…unless a couple is at least fives times more complimentary, affectionate, supportive, and encouraging as they are critical, nagging, and confrontational, their rapport will deteriorate until it ceases to exist.

Gary Smalley

Affirming words from moms and dads are like light switches. Speak a word of affirmation at the right moment in a child’s life and it’s like lighting up a whole roomful of possibilities.

Brian Andreas

Remember to use positive affirmations. “I am not a dork” is not one of them.

Diane Loomans

If I had my child to raise all over again, I’d finger paint more, and point the finger less. I’d do less correcting, and more connecting. I’d take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes. I would care to know less, and know to care more. I’d take more hikes and fly more kites. I’d stop playing serious, and seriously play. I’d run through more fields, and gaze at more stars. I’d do more hugging, and less tugging. I would be firm less often, and affirm much more. I’d build self esteem first, and the house later. I’d teach less about the love of power, and more about the power of love.

William Arthur Ward

Blessed is he who has learned to admire but not envy, to follow but not imitate, to praise but not flatter, and to lead but not manipulate.

William Arthur Ward

When we seek to discover the best in others, we somehow bring out the best in ourselves.

Brian Tracy

Look for the good in every person and every situation. You’ll almost always find it.

Sam Cooke

You got to accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative, and latch on to the affirmative. Don’t mess with Mr. In Between.

Victor Hugo

…Man lives by affirmation even more than he does by bread.

Charles Schwab

I consider my ability to arouse enthusiasm among men the greatest asset I possess. The way to develop the best that is in a man is by appreciation and encouragement.

Leo Buscaglia

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
