First off, I don't expect you to watch this entire video. It's 16 minutes long! Who has time for that? But within the first 120 seconds, you'll understand the premise of this teaching.
Validation. Affirmation. Compliments. However you want to put it––they are the secret to making long-term relationships. These small words of intention can change a fellow human's journey, forever? So why do we so rarely give them? What is holding us back? Is it our selfishness? Is it just forgetfulness?
“To affirm a person is to see the good in them that they cannot see in themselves and to repeat it in spite of appearances to the contrary.”
The video below proves this to be true. Speak up. We all need it.
Has a stranger ever affirmed you? How did it make you feel? Let me know in the comments below.
Some know me as a serial entrepreneur and Founder of Sevenly and StartupCamp, others know me as the guy who can ride a unicycle and still kickflip on a skateboard. I’m on a mission to inspire people. Will you join me?
