Everyone needs encouragement. Think of the impact of parents encouraging their young child to take her first steps, or their middle school student to learn a difficult algebraic concept.

You can make a lasting impact for good in the lives of those around you.

The greatest help you can give to people in the midst of challenge is to help them see that they can triumph. They usually don’t need instruction, they need encouragement.

If you offer added pressure, or doubt their abilities, we discourage them—sometimes nudging them to decide to give up.

Your encouraging words lift others.

In Where Seldom Is Heard a Discouraging Word – Encouragement for Successful and Meaningful Living, David DeFord inspires you to take control of your own future. You really can live with greater success and higher meaning. Taken from the pages of his popular e-zine, this book will encourage you to aim higher.

• Eleven steps to getting what you want
• How to keep yourself motivated
• How you can achieve greatness by following some small principles
• The “Big Five” technique for achieving your most important goals
• How to fight discouragement
• How to attract success
• How to open the doors of opportunity
