Thank you very much for Speaking Up! last week. I received so much positive reinforcement that it reminded me that by hosting this forum I am not only helping myself but others.
Positive reinforcement. I forgot how much I missed it. Lane was very good at it. He was quick with a compliment but to me positive reinforcement is more than that. He helped me find confidence when mine was low. He patiently listened to me when I needed to vent. He helped me figure out how to solve problems at work, with the kids or whatever. He believed in me. He truly thought I could do anything if I put my mind to it.
I've adjusted to life without much positive reinforcement. I trust my instincts and do the best I can. But some days it is really hard not to hear Lane say "Good job Pie."
Where do you get your positive reinforcement?
