Show appreciation for effort
If you have the opportunity to observe Friends taking steps to achieve a purpose, look for opportunities to show appreciation for their efforts.

Yesterday while taking a walk with my wife Betsy, we called our daughter on our cell to visit with her. She talked enthusiastically to Betsy about her progress with a problem she is facing and mentioned it briefly to me as we talked about other matters. After we disconnected, Betsy and I talked about our admiration for our daughter. I called her immediately just to tell her that I was proud of her. The call lasted less than a minute, but from her reaction, she was touched.

Everyone needs a cheerleader and the respect of witnesses to their efforts to persevere.
