What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the acronym C.E.O.? Maybe boss, leader, chief, head of the organization, number 1, decision maker, owner and the like. But we will not talk about a Chief Executive Officer here.
Today we will talk about being a Chief Encouragement Officer (CEO). Whether we admit or not everyone deserves or needs encouragement, either it’s coming from ourselves or from other people.
There’s a lot of negative people in the world already, we should not add up to that growing number anymore so it won’t multiply.
Let’s be honest, most of the time it’s more easy to find fault in other people, but it’s hard to find good in others. Why? Simply because finding good things, giving help, and saying encouraging words to someone is intentional or something you do deliberately with careful thought and action plan for proper execution. It doesn’t happen accidentally. People get encouraged when someone lifts their spirit, stimulates their mind and spreads hope in their present situation. Which results to more determination and confidence to face the future.
So, who wants to be a C.E.O. right now? Or who needs to be a Chief Encouragement Officer right now? The answer is all of us, because each and every one of us has the ability and capacity to do it. We just need to make a choice.
1 Thessalonians 5:11
Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.
Question: Are you ready to encourage someone now? If yes, find one or two people this week that you think needs encouragement, encourage them and pray for them. If you think you’re the one who needs encouragement, go talk to your mentor, leader or make time with the most positive person you know to seek advice.
