Compliments create a virtuous circle
When I hear people telling me ‘Hey, what’s the matter with you, you don’t look very good? Hey, you have run down quite since I met you last!’ I don’t feel good. Do you?
I have seen people using these sentences as the first words at the time of greeting. These are sure shot relationship dampeners.
Instead, say these:
‘Hey, you look gorgeous in that dress! You have a wonderful sense of fashion!’
‘Aw, you’ve an adorable forbearance!’
Yeah, you may already be feeling how these words work. Sere magic, I must say!
You innately crave for appreciation; feeling valued and appreciated are our basic needs.
Have you ever realised how you take things for granted with your spouse, family, close friends, and colleagues? This is a sure-shot relationship dampener.
Giving and receiving appreciation also count as good leadership traits.
Do use compliments in your everyday life
Appreciation if articulated with grace and art can pave the way for an instant rapport and builds long lasting relationships. People get naturally attracted to you and love to be around you.
Some people are naturally gifted with the art of appreciation.
However, with many others compliments don’t come naturally. They feel awkward to compliment. You might have even come across people who even feel embarrassed when showered compliments.
The grace & the art of Appreciating
When you appreciate people with heart-felt love and respect, you attract people to you. They too reciprocate.
So how do we give compliments? Giving compliments is an artful and graceful indulgence. You must give your compliment freely, without any inhibition. You must not expect immediate return. You must know how people sometimes feel awkward.
You will be inhibited if you have self-doubts or you have an oblique motive. So your compliments should be genuine. Genuineness of your compliments reveals that you care for them. A genuine appreciation brings a genuine smile to both giver and even to a very shy receiver.
Your whole face including eyes and smile communicates all- your genuineness and warmth when you genuinely compliment.
Receive compliments with grace
You may have noticed how people react to your compliments with suspicion. You may even have noticed people flipping their head with arrogance.
In today’s time we are all surrounded by small talk and commercial messages marked with discernible insincerity. Therefore, a genuine compliment may get ignored.
This happens quite often. We should not stop giving our compliments nevertheless.
You must remember that you are bringing good into your own world by seeing the best in others and verbalising your appreciation in words.
