THE POWER OF A COMLIMENT…..
It is amazing how a person’s face will light up when we say something nice to them aka a compliment……I love seeing that reaction after I have paid them an honest compliment…..Notice how I said “honest?”……A fake compliment is almost always noted and usually doesn’t do much for a person. It ends up causing you to lose your credibility when your compliment is not honest but fake…..An HONEST COMPLIMENT can do wonders for another person as well as endear them to you….
How about when someone pays you an honest compliment….How do you react….? Do you say “Oh no, that isn’t so” trying to be modest? Or do you allow yourself to embrace the compliment, soak it up, and allow your face to shine as a result……Yes, the power of a compliment can go a long ways…..
I look for things to compliment people on….honestly. Everyone has something you can find that is obvious and not so obvious that you can complement…..I didn’t say “over compliment” for then we begin to water down our compliments…..Compliments done right can have amazing results, and people remember that compliment for a very long time…
Learn the art of COMPLIMENTING……It is almost a lost art ….Many people hold on to a compliment the way a dog holds on to a bone….They just won’t give one up. It is as if they are giving a million dollars away from their own pocket……What many don’t realize is that we get what we give in life….If we are selfish with our compliments we are likely selfish with everything else…..and we all know about selfish people….They rarely are happy people and rarely if ever find the happiness they are looking for…..
So consider giving compliments everywhere you go….Honest ones….You are likely to be amazed at the positive reactions you get…
