If you want to have a life rather than existence, then learn to be bold – learn how to give and receive praise. Giving praise can change your life and the lives of those around you, but most of us have no idea how to give or receive it! Praise costs nothing, takes practically no time and is available to all. It would be considered a crime to allow someone to go six days without food, yet we let people go sixty days, sixty weeks, sixty years without praise or recognition. The power of praise will encourage you to embrace change, take risks, fail and try again, act on your dreams and believe in yourself.
