Believe in yourself. You are braver than you think, more talented than you know, and capable of more than you imagine. ― Roy T. Bennett
Sometimes what comes between us and success are our unrealistic fear. We turn around on the first sign of difficulty. But how would you know that mountain is surmountable if you don’t try to climb it; that river can be crossed if you don’t try to swim, paddle a boat or push a raft against its raging current to get to a place where it is least swift and you can easily mount the river bank. Don’t envy the next successful man you see for you cannot fathom the extent of his sacrifices and how deep was the hole he climbed from to get where he is now. Well, one of these encouraging quotes tell all that you need to hear to keep you moving forward.

Why is encouragement important?
For any human being, life is not always a bed of roses. There comes a time when you face challenges that push you beyond your limits. You may be so downhearted to the point of despair. This is where encouraging quotes come in handy.
It may seem quite unrealistic that a bunch of words can serve to uplift you during your lowest moments. It is not uncommon for a person to regard encouragement as a temporary solace. What we often forget is that what we need is reassurance.
Sometimes all you need is someone to tell you that you will be ok. It is not just a show of sympathy, but a reassurance. Probably the person talking to you has been in a similar situation before. All you need is someone to say it with an assertiveness that will catch your attention and you will definitely come out of whichever situation it is in good shape.
Encouragement enables you to be brave and face future situations more stoically. By the fact that you are out there looking for encouraging words during your darkest moments, it shows that you are confident enough to talk about them. It gives you the morale to slay the beast. A person encouraging you can excite your will to fight your problems and soldier on.
Words of encouragement from someone else not only uplift you, but also show you that someone cares about you. Through being encouraged, you learn that you are not alone in this world. There are people out there who can fight through hard times with you.
Once you understand that, you are assured that you can count on such people any time in future. In this way, you can build a better and closer relationship with them.
Gaining problem solving skills
Words of encouragement do not just come with an empty promise of a brighter future. Encouragement comes with advice and tips on how to go about a certain situation. A person encouraging you can offer their opinion on how they would deal with what you are suffering .
You also get to view your problems from another person’s perspective. They probably view your problems as a really small one that they can easily deal with. Once you realise that your problem is not as big as it looks to you, you get more motivated to fight through it.
How can I get encouragement?
Sometimes, the biggest issue that derails you from healing is not knowing where exactly to get encouragement. Who do you approach? Not to worry, I am going to give you a few ideas of places and people from whom you can seek encouragement.
The closest social circle to you is probably your family. If you urgently need reassurance, the family provides the closest shoulder to lean own. It doesn’t have to be from your immediate circle comprised of your parents and siblings. You need to talk to that one member of your family who you mostly confide in.
Some friends know so much about you. They know what you are going through and actually care. Moreover, they are more than ready to offer emotional, social and practical help. There is truly no better feeling than to walk through depression with those whom you share joyful moments with.
All you need to do is figure out who your right friends are. Not all friends are there to handle your problems. Some of them just don’t know how to go about it whereas others simply don’t care. Talk to those that constantly check on you and try to find out what’s going on in your life.
Sometimes your problem may be so deep that it may require professional help. Good news, there are people trained for it out here. You do not have to worry about the cost. In these days, many organizations such as schools, hospitals and churches offer free counselling services.

A lot has been said about getting encouragement; how about you encouraging someone else? You have a responsibility as a good friend to look out for your other friends. Offer them a shoulder to cry on during their lowest moments. They need you just as much as you need them.
How do you provide encouragement?
This may seem like an uphill task for may people.You may not know exactly what to say to a person seeking emotional help. However, i am going to share a few tips that you can try out. It will work out just fine.
1. Recognize their struggle
If you are a close friend to someone, you will definitely notice when their moods change. If you observe that your friend is constantly in a bad mood, ask them about what is going on in their life. Try and convince them to talk about it.
2. Offer solutions
Do not just listen to them and say nothing. Try and come up with ways to solve the problem; otherwise you will be of no good. Do not try showing them that you have bigger problems than them. If there is anything that you can provide whether financially or emotionally, please do so if it’s within your means.
3. Refer them to counsellors
Sometimes, you may not be in a position to offer help to someone. Their problem may be too big for you. Do not just turn them down. Refer them to counselors that you know. In addition to that, be part of their struggle. You can offer them company as they visit the counselor.
It is also a kind gesture to enquire about their progress from time to time. In this way, they will know that you actually care and they can count on you during whatever storm.
4. Cheer them up.
