A TRY SHOULD COUNT!
Perfect people who succeed at everything they try don’t need your encouragement. Perfection carries its own rewards. However…
Regular (imperfect) folks – like the ones you love – always are blessed whenyou celebrate their honest efforts, NOT just their victories.
When was the last time you told someone dear to you, that full-out achievement of their goal is great, but their faithfulness to keep at it, impresses the heck out of you?
Literally or figuratively, throwing a party for sincere effort alone isquite in order. Well-celebrated efforts often lead to full-out success stories.
Stop along their path of progress and point out how far they’ve come – notjust how far they have to go.
