This week I want you to give a genuine compliment to at least one complete stranger everyday :-).
First off, when you compliment someone you give them a little, “pick me up.” You like when someone compliments you and gives you a little boost right? So, instead of just being a receiver, I would love for you to give someone else a little boost with a kind compliment. Also, you never know what’s going on in someone else’s life, a small compliment could make a huge difference and impact them in a BIG way. And you could be that source of change :-).
Second, being kind to someone else and giving them a compliment oftentimes lifts not only their mood but yours as well. So, if you’d like to be a little bit happier make someone else happier :-). I just noticed I’m leaving a lot of smiley faces in this text, I will try and refrain.
Third, by looking for people to compliment you will discover that you are surrounded by incredible people with incredible gifts and talents.
Fourth, it’s just plain old FUN!
Think about it, when was the last time you complimented a complete stranger in the grocery store or post office? Or anywhere for that matter? You can make a profound impact by doing something small and simple, give a stranger a compliment.
Also, don’t overthink this and freak out. You can simply say, “Hey, I really like your T-shirt” or “Thank you for holding the door.” I think you get the idea.
On a side note, if this gets you out of your comfort zone, awesome you’ll be better for it :-).
Now go be awesome!
