There is no downside to encouraging others and building them up to achieve greater heights.
We all need to take the “it takes a village” mentality as we go through life and remember that if others are doing well and improving then that’s a great thing.
Cheer them on. Applaud them. Help them. Guide them.
But don’t discourage them. It’s okay to provide constructive feedback but simply being negative and shooting down their hopes and dreams doesn’t do anyone any favors.
We’ll be in that situation soon enough and we’ll want to look back and see that there is a cheering section rooting us on in our next endeavor.
Let’s put the ego aside and show our support for others. It’ll give them the confidence to keep going and we’ll have a much more positive experience from helping them move forward which will only help us the next time around.
