Compliments are a gift that creates a 2-way street of happiness.
As the compliment giver, you feel good because of the positive impact you had on someone… as the compliment receiver, you feel like you hit the lottery as the “reward center” in your brain lights up.
“I absolutely love this product… I get a lot of compliments on my skin since using it!”
“At 81 years of age, I am impressed at the texture and firmness of my facial skin. I was actually mistaken for a woman of 63 years. How flattering is that?!?!”
“I just turned 71years old and people are always commenting on my skin and asking what is my secret?”
Compliments have this “pay it forward” quality.
That single moment of kindness can trigger a sequence of positivity that can have immeasurable benefits as it ripples across humanity.
Also, offering a compliment opens up a line of communication.
This opening when nurtured can lead to a great and beneficial relationship - be it a new lifelong friend, a business partner, or the love of your life.
To kick off this National Compliment Day, we want to share the 3-S’s for a knock-out compliment - every time!
Compliments shouldn’t be given out for the sake of saying something. Sincerity reflects in your tone and body language and the recipient can feel when you’re being genuine!
The best compliments are delivered with brevity and a smile. Don’t let nervous dead-air keep you talking. Let the compliment “hang” by itself so the recipient has a moment to ingest and embrace it. Watch as your kind words light up her face and perk up her spirits!
The best compliments are detail-oriented. Don’t just say “your scarf is pretty.” Rather, say “the color of that scarf makes the blue of your eyes really pop!”
Or “I love how the color of that scarf works with the red in your hair to brighten your whole appearance.”
When delivered with details, compliments have a lasting positive effect on the recipient!
As a 50+ Fabulous Woman, you are most likely no stranger to compliments. Let’s join together to make this National Compliment Day one to remember!
