The Beneficiary of Praise
Praise is a powerful thing. It can boost morale, increase productivity, and even improve physical health. But what happens when you praise everyone? Does it lose its meaning?
According to a study by the University of California, Berkeley, people who are praised excessively actually start to believe that they are not worthy of praise. This can lead to feelings of inadequacy and low self-esteem.
So what’s the solution? The answer is to be selective with your praise. Only praise people when they truly deserve it. This will make your praise more meaningful and have a greater impact.
There once was a man who praised all
He met, from the young to the old
But when he was asked
Why he did this so fast
He said, “I just want to be bold!”
Praise is a gift,
Use it wisely, or it will be lost.
Be selective with praise.
