Compliment is an in-built weapon you have by which you can win biggest wars. A real compliment comes from inside, say something you purely believe to be true, your genuine warmth will not go unnoticed.
Praising people for qualities relevant to a situation may help motivate them and also feel good about themselves. You may just end-up making someone’s day.
Giving compliments and recognition lets people know that you notice and value them. And you know, human are creatures who don’t take debts, you will get double of what you give.
A genuine compliment can help you gain respect & love but a fake one can ruin your conservation. If you tell people “I like your outfit” or something similar, the end result will be that the people you compliment won’t feel very special.
It should be something unique & relatable. So, think before you speak, come up with something genuine to say, or don’t say anything at all.
How you give a compliment is almost as important as what you say. Eye contact is key when giving a compliment. It’s all about face-to-face contact. It’s an easy way to show that you mean what you say.
Also it’s important that you are quick. The best time to compliment is immediately after someone does something praiseworthy. If you wait for long, you will miss the chance.
Now, don’t complicate things, i just wanna tell you it should be a genuine compliment, that’s all. Examples of compliments that i find most powerful are:
#1. You are smarter than you look
#2. You are such a fun person’
#3. I love how you don’t care what you look like
#4. It’s great how you deal with peoples
#5. you look so happy, it’s infectious
#6. you should be proud of yourself
#7. You bring out the best in other people
At last, i want to remind you nothing can ever be good in excess. If you keep complimenting someone on a daily basis chances are you can be seen in a different way, you know what i mean. Find the right mix between too little and too much.
That’s all you need to know to make people’s butterflies come alive.
