Uplift People, Don’t Tear Them Down

We need to be more aware of what others are doing, applaud their efforts, acknowledging their successes, and encourage them in their pursuits. When we all help one another, everyone wins

We are living in a self-serving, self-centered, and self-obsessed modern day rush-rush society filled with negativity and the constant tearing down of others. If people really want to differentiate themselves in this world, they need to be people-oriented and start to Focus on building others up,

We are created to be relational beings, it’s our greatest privilege to enjoy companionship with the people who truly matter in our lives. How can we be a source of encouragement to everyone around us?

Here a few simple ways to uplift others

1. Esteem others higher.

Leaders esteem others hight than themselves. Have high regards, great respect, and favorable thoughts of the people around them of trust and influence.

2. Be wise with your speech.

Communicate more effectively by thinking before you speak. If there’s a word that’s more appropriate in a conversation, use it. Whoever you are speaking to, start with a praise use something like, “You look so good today.” Never confront others. Instead, point out on how both of you can make things better. Speak at the same level as the people around you, giving them respect. There’s no need to cone in with an authoritarian voice to get your message heard.

3. Be encouraging.

Encouragement is an expression and assurance of one’s hope and future in words, presence, and sincerity,

4. Be quick to forgive.

When others make a mistake, be quick to forgive and forget; releasing them from guilt and shame that may take root on one’s heart when not dealt with over time. The Bible says, “Forgive and you will be forgiven.”

5. Be understanding.

Wisdom and understanding go hand in hand. Understanding starts by being an active listener (not planning a reply as one is speaking), asking intelligent questions to gain further insight, and being accepting of what the other is sharing. Then, answer without condemning. Or don’t answer at all and decide to a listening ear,

6. Zero gossip.

Keep other’s secrets. Never speak anything that causes unnecessary hurt to others by speaking unclaimed rumors behind their back.

7. Share knowledge.

Sharing knowledge helps others to learn, discover, and understanding things that are interesting. They have immediate application for better result in our work and life, it edifies our soul, and improves our daily conversations.

8. Stay humble.

Humility and maturity are synonymous. A dignified person accomplishes much, but brags little. They are secure in their standing without needing to make noise, often treating everyone with respect, regardless of their position.

9. Be positive.

Positive thinking goes beyond having the drive and motivation for personal success. Positive thinking is explicit, definite, and outspoken. It’s contagious. Building people up with your positiveness, allowing them to be open for better things to come.

Never push your beliefs on others. If you choose a lifestyle, don’t expect everyone else need to follow your lifestyle.. It’s a “I’m doing this, so therefore everyone else needs to be doing it.” Stance.

Above all choose love. Be Patient, And treat everyone that way you would like to be treated.
