Giving a genuine compliment is an amazing positivity boost! But compliments are not only good for the recipients—they’re good for the people who give them as well. When you go out of your way to say something nice and give thoughtful praise to another person, it amplifies your self-confidence and nourishes your self-esteem. 

You can make someone’s day by sharing your positivity in the form of a genuine compliment. Telling someone, with a smile, that they have beautiful eyes, or that the color they are wearing suits them, will also increase and enhance your own sense of well-being. 

The act of giving compliments creates a virtuous circle. Telling someone that they have made a positive impact on your life, or that you admired the way they handled a situation, is a powerful gift. You reinforce their value in the world, while strengthening your relationship. 

Seeing the good in others has another powerful benefit. By appreciating and respecting others, we become a magnet for their reciprocated love. So, how do you give a compliment? First of all, you give it—freely and without the expectation of anything in return. This may feel awkward at first, but that’s OK. If your compliment is genuine, the receiver will feel the power of your words. They will see warmth in your smile and genuine appreciation in your eyes.
