Take the time to express it

Take the time to say it.

“You know what I really like about you…”
“I love it when you…”
“I really respect you for…”
“This thing you did had such a good effect on me…”
“Thank you for…”
“I really appreciate it when you…”
“I admire you for…”
“One of my favorite memories of you is…”

Accentuate the positive in others and you may just have as positive effect on someone else as they have on you.

Yes, you absolutely make a difference.

Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.” — William James

Yes, you absolutely make a difference.

But do you know how you make even more of a difference?

Simply by being aware of times that you can do so and then following through with some kind of action.

A kind word, a sincere compliment, a bit of encouragement, a smile, a listening ear, some positive feedback…

These things often take mere moments of our time to give, but can be worth so much to the people on the receiving end.

Accentuate the positive and positivity expands. You don’t have to see it to know it happens, but when you do, it is its own special reward.
