Daily Prompts- The power of praise

What is the biggest asset in public and personal dealing?

Lift up the spirit of your co-workers and employees with due praise. Giving the credit they deserve and praising them for a job well done does wonder for the morale. The same principle can be employed for close family and friends.

This doesn’t mean that one shows complete and flagrant disregard for the truth, and heap praise undeservedly. It means that you recognize the positive traits in people around you and encourage them in their strengths.

The simple acknowledgment of a job well done can make someone’s day, and give their morale a big boost. This really increases productivity and builds up the team spirit. Indulging and inspiring others so that they feel valued will benefit us too. Similarly in our personal relationships, if we praise anything good or positive, the people around us not only feel cheered up but our interpersonal relationships are strengthened too.

In response to the following prompts;


Complete, Truth, Crimson










MLMM- Saturday Mix – Mad About Metaphor, 7 December 2019

Sarah is the host of Saturday Mix

Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Mad About Metaphor, 7 December 2019! 

Our metaphor this week is:

 The cut of your jib.


Stephen presented himself nervously on the day of the interview. He was qualified enough for the job but was lacking in confidence. He thought that if he failed to impress the panel, his chances of getting this job would be nil.

As he was called in, he drank from the water cup he was holding and adjusting his shirt walked in hesitantly in the room. A table faced the door, and on it, three people sat looking at him intently. As the interview started, he gradually relaxed. At the end of the session, the older man on the panel said to him, “Young man I like the cut of your jib. We will give you a chance and if you prove your worth in the three month trial period, we will hire you on a permanent basis”

Though Stephen wasn’t sure what the cut of his jib meant, he was elated by the rest of the news.

The first thing he did after he thanked the panel and can out, was to Google the meaning of those words!



Weekend Writing Prompt # 135 – Barricade

Sammi Cox is the host of Weekend Writing Prompt.

A word prompt to get your creativity flowing this weekend. 

Word Prompt





Police were wearing riot gear and standing behind the barricade. An angry mob was on the other side shouting anti-government slogans and telling them to step down.

The chief of the police tried to negotiate with the leader of the protesters but to no avail. The leader was an old man and his only condition was the resignation of the President. This was not the only site of protests. All over the country, people had risen up against the government policies. The most unacceptable was the discriminatory laws against the local population and so was the ruling class’s attitude who had usurped the power almost a century ago. The locals were forbidden from using the clubs and posh dining areas which were exclusive for the white skinned ruling class.

Now it was time of change!
