When I was 8 years old, I was watching TV at my father’s friends house. and I was watching the show “The Greatest American Hero”. I told him that one day I was going to be The Greatest American Hero, and he said “Yes, you will be.” Even though I was just a boy, that little act of kindness shown to me by an adult who barely knew me made an impact on my life that I will never forget.
I believe in any workplace, in any scenario, a few kind words can work wonders. Watch this preview for Man of Steel, and listen in to some really amazing quotes that can influence us all.
My personal favorite line from this trailer:
“You will give the people an ideal to strive towards. They will race behind you, they will stumble, they will fall. But in time, they will join you in the sun. In time, you will help them accomplish wonders.” Jor-El
Bring out the best in your people with just a few kind words.
