Everyone needs to be valued.
Maybe someone has a small spark of interest in something but are afraid to proceed. Can we not give them a nudge, provide them with some training or coaching to excel at something they are interested in? Personal achievement can go a long long way in building up someone who may feel beat down.
Give someone a goal. Coach them to achieve that goal, provide constructive feedback, not negative criticism. Then, award! Reward! Praise!
We all need to be valued.
