The Power of Praise Each person may have been in trouble and feel hard to solve their problems. At this moment, a few words of praise will create unimaginable power. In the last semester in m
y elementary school, I once took part in an art competition and was told that I had to make an art poster by myself. Maybe it sounded interesting to make colorful stuff, but for me, it was quite difficult. A few days passed, but I just drew some simple lines on the paper. Just when I lose heart and decided to give up, my best friend, Betty gave me sincere praise to the lines I had drawn. She told me how beautiful those lines were and how confident she was of my success. Her words build my confidence again. I worked harder and spent more time on the poster. Finally I finished it and won the first prize. My experience made me realize the power of praise. It helps to improve self-confidence and it helps to overcome any difficulties.
