As author Ken Blanchard suggests, “Catch people doing something right.” Genuine and sincere approval, commendation, and praise builds morale, esteem, confidence, motivation, and the quality of relationships. So, believe others want and intend to do well. Give them “the benefit of the doubt,” and act upon positive expectancy in all your interactions by assuming good faith. The more you reinforce and encourage the outcomes you want, the more likely you are to get them.
"I was literally thinking this just a few hours ago, the perfect guy is the one who thinks he doesnt deserve you, and spends his time trying to be the best he can be so that he can deserve you." So true! Speak to it. I'm trying to explain this right now.
