The Most Powerful Motivator

I've been reading John Maxwell's book the 25 Ways to Win with People and came across this sentence that is important in so many areas of life - business, leadership, relationships, parenting, coaching, mentoring, etc. It's such a simple piece of wisdom, with incredible value:

The most powerful motivator is "I believe in you."

Letting someone know that you believe in them is so important, yet overlooked. That phrase alone has the power to change people. A little support goes a long way. People naturally want to do a good job and are able to rise to challenges more effectively when they know that someone is in their corner. It makes all the difference.
  • Who in your life has done this for you?
  • Is there someone in your business, team, or life that might benefit from having a vote of confidence from you?
