How To Encourage Your Friends & Family to #BeGreatOutThere

This post was sponsored by Nature Valley as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central.

You don't have to wait for the big moments in life, like graduations, marriage or birthdays, to tell your loved ones you're proud of them.

We all get by with a little help from our friends, family, and the communities we are part of. Kind words, a little dose of encouragement, and simply letting people know you are there for them goes a long way in ensuring the people we love have the support they need to succeed.

At GenTwenty, we’re always encouraging you to do your best, set and reach your goals, and find your own happiness. We’re always here for you and we always support you.

We know our language is so powerful, and frankly, we could all use a little encouragement every now and then. Even when life gets busy, the difference we can make in each other’s lives with our words can have a huge impact on us all. You never know what someone is going through, and hearing a kind, positive message can help them through.

We believe in you. #begreatoutthere @NatureValley #ad #IC

What do you tell them?

Sometimes it feels silly to tell people you believe in them without feeling cheesy, but the more you do it the easier it will be! Here are a few things you can say to show your support:

  • I’m so proud of you.
  • You’re going to be amazing today!
  • I believe in you.
  • You’re the greatest.
  • Good luck!
  • Trust in yourself.
  • Your confidence is contagious.
  • You inspire me.
  • You go girl.

You don’t have to wait for the big moments in life, like graduations, marriage or birthdays, to tell your loved ones you’re proud of them. 

Nature Valley is teaming up with Facebook to help you send support to your family and friends and encourage them to #BeGreatOutThere. They’ve made it easy to send a personal video to inspire and encourage the people you love.

Send a message on a big day or do it just because–there’s never a wrong time to let your loved ones know you’re on their side. A few simple words can change everything.

Growing up, my parents always told me and my siblings that it was important to support each other because there’s a lot of negativity in the world and we didn’t need negativity to come from the people who are closest to us.

Trust in yourself. You are greatness. #begreatoutthere @NatureValley #ad #IC

For this reason, I love the message behind Nature Valley’s #BeGreatOutThere hashtag. I also love sending my friends and family encouragement and little doses of love through Instagram photos, sending flowers or a handwritten card, or just a simple text. You can send your own personalized message to your loved ones through the Nature Valley Facebook page here.

Nature Valley helps provide the physical and emotional support you need to be your best self. In support of this campaign, Nature Valley has shared a coupon which you can print to redeem here on your next purchase!

Go on. #BeGreatOutThere. We believe in you.

Tell your friends you believe in them, too.
