Words of encouragement are important when someone is going through a rough time, however, over encouraging is bad. Sometimes it is good to discourage someone if you know he or she is going down the wrong path. For instance, your friend that can’t sing and doesn’t have good looks with a dream to be a singer, not impossible but almost unrealistic.
“Don’t praise me, praises kill my determination. Don’t back stab me, because you are pushing yourself to the end. Don’t support me, critique me, I need that to complete myself.” Without further ado, here are some of the best Words of Encouragement quotes for those that almost made it to the finishing line.
You can’t have life without death, nor can you have success without failure. This is where the concept of Yin and Yang comes into play, yin and yang describes how opposite or contrary forces are actually complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another. Everything has both yin and yang aspects, for instance shadow cannot exist without light. Just like the philosophy of Buddhism, the path to enlightenment lay along the Middle Way, if the Sita’s string is too tight, it will snap and the music dies, if the Sita’s string is too loose, there will be no sound.
Remember that when you are failing, instead of giving up, take a look at the situation, are you too extreme or too slacking on the problem? If so, take a step back and move towards the middle path. The Buddha describes the middle way as a path of moderation, between the extremes of sensual indulgence and self-mortification. This, according to him, was the path of wisdom, it gives vision, gives knowledge, and leads to calm, to insight, and to enlightenment.
The struggle you’re in today is developing the strength you need for tomorrow. Don’t give up.
Always remember that your present situation is not your final destination. The best is yet to come.
Encourage yourself, believe in yourself, and love yourself. Never doubt who you are.
Today will never come again. Be a blessing. Be a friend. Encourage someone. Take time to care. Let your words heal, and not wound.
Whenever you feel weak, remember the things that made you strong. Whenever you start to doubt yourself, remember those who believe in you.
Life has many ways of testing a person’s will, either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen all at once.
Never let the odds keep you from doing what you know in your heart you were meant to do.
