Affirmation

Sam Walton

Nothing else can quite substitute for a few well-chosen, well-timed, sincere words of praise. They’re absolutely free and worth a fortune.

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.

Leonardo Da Vinci

To lie is so vile that even if it were speaking well of goodly things it would take something from God’s grace; and truth is so excellent that if it praises but small things they become noble.

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.

Victor Hugo

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

Patrick Henry

A leader must lead. Where others see obstacles, he must see opportunities. When others see problems, he must see possibilities … Civilization is not built on a negation but on an affirmation- an affirmation of the bright and promising possibilities that the future holds for those who are enterprising enough to pursue them.

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.
