If you are ever given the opportunity to encourage someone, please do so.
Even your enemies.
Don't be so quick to dismiss someone you have the ability to influence in a positive manner because you see them as undeserving - or you are worried about he/she getting ahead of you.
That's not what it's about.
Yes, your growth is important and it should be a priority for a number of reasons, but setting aside yourself to guide someone else can be life-changing.
It has been proven time and time again, yet for whatever reason - we pass up multiple opportunities to do so ...
A kind word or gesture takes no time at all nor does it cost any money.
Choose to shine a light into the lives of others as we are all battling a darkness that is unseen to the eye.
