When I was in high school, one of my teachers was a great encouragement to me.  Mr. Francour was the first person who noticed my writing abilities.  He gave me an opportunity to write a column for the school paper, albeit, short-lived.  But, that’s not the point.  His words to me were never forgotten.  Thinking back now, I’m sure that he only said a sentence or two, but those words changed the course of my life.  Those few, well-selected words instilled a quiet confidence in my writing that is unshakeable.

But, let’s suppose, the opposite were true.  What if he had chosen to pick apart what I had written with the focus on technical details and corrections that needed to be made? I would not be the same person.  What power words have.
