How to motivate?

Just as negative comments and experiences destroy motivation, positive comments and a series of little successes can begin to repair motivation. Encouraging words like “Wow, you put a lot of effort into your work” or “I like the way you worked on that” regularly will go a long way to acknowledge the strengths and build some confidence. It is easy to tell someone what they have done wrong, but for many it is surprisingly difficult to think of positive comments.
