TWELVE THINGS YOU SHOULD SAY MORE OFTEN

#benice, #happythoughts

Twelve things you should say more often….

1. Thank You

  • Two words that show you are grateful to someone and can really make them feel they’ve made a difference to your life.

2. You can do it

  • Empowering others to succeed will leave you feeling instantly better about yourself.

3. I forgive you

  • Only when you let go of the past can you move forward.

4. I’m sorry, I made a mistake

  • Taking ownership of your mistakes will help you grow as a person.

5. Please

  • Just by using this word, you will find people are more inclined to help you.

6. It’s going to be ok

  • Reassuring someone with a positive attitude can help them see a way out of a bleak situation.

7. I don’t know

  • We can’t all know the answer to every question or problem in life, saying ‘you don’t know’, isn’t a sign of weakness, it’s your way of learning more about the world around you.

8. You’re great

  • Encourage your friends and you will soon find they do the same for you, resulting in an increase in confidence for you all.

9. Hello

  • Strangers are friends we have yet to meet. A smile or a “Hi” can break the ice.

10. I disagree, but still like you

  • Of course, friends can disagree, if they do so respectfully and are prepared to listen to one another.

11. Something nice

  • It can be so easy to get into the habit of only every pointing out someone’s negative qualities…spinning this on its head and focusing on the positive is contagious and can make someone feel valued and more self-confident.

12. Nothing

  • Don’t ever feel you have to fill in the silences. If you really have nothing to say, then sitting next to a friend and just chilling is just as important and supportive as offering advice.
