When Chips are Down, Encouragement Goes a Long Way
By Denise Hall (C) 2003
Have you ever been so discouraged that you were ready to give up? Do your dreams of a profitable home business seem very far away at times?
I think we all go through it. We work into wee hours of morning, day after day, night after night. At times it seems that our hard work will never pay off. That no matter what we do, no one is paying attention.
But chances are, that along way someone, somewhere has given you what you need to keep going and become successful.
What is it? A very simple thing, really. ENCOURAGEMENT!
Kind words and compliments can boost our self-esteem and keep us going. They are lifeblood of mankind. Sometimes they're just thing we need to realize that we CAN and WILL succeed in achieving our goals, no matter what those goals may be.
In last few months I've written several articles about internet businesses. I've had many compliments about my work from numerous ezine publishers and readers. I've also had home business "newbies" ask for my advice to help them get their businesses off on right track.
Every time I get such e-mails I think, "Who, me? I'm GOOD at this? Thank you very much. I'm honored that you enjoyed my work."
Let me just say that I'm not writing this article to toot my own horn. I'm writing it to remind everyone how powerful words can be.
Recently I was very honored and humbled to receive an e-mail from someone who had just read one of my articles. Here is what he said:
"Great article. I was very impressed.
You summed it all up rather nicely and concisely in a clear and very readable message. Nice personal touches as well, to keep it very human and real! I particularly like your down to earth style and attitude. Well done, and “Thanks”, I enjoyed it a lot.
