NATIONAL COMPLIMENT DAY - January 24

What a wonderful way to brighten someone’s day or to give credit for a job well done!  Give an extra compliment on National Compliment Day which is observed annually on January 24.  

A compliment has a powerful effect. It can instill confidence in a child, or validate someone’s hard work. A compliment not only improves the receiver’s mood, but it also says something about the giver. It tells them you noticed. Whether we recognize someone’s achievement or their classic style, a compliment can go a long way.

To give a great compliment, first be sincere. People have a way of knowing when we are fake. If you don’t mean it, it’s worse than getting a thoughtless birthday gift.

Complimenting character versus a new haircut are different rewards. The first says you respect the person and the other tells them you paid attention. Sometimes the receiver needs to hear one or the other, or both.

Human beings like to be unique, original. Strive to compliment what makes a person stand out above the rest. Take the time to reflect on what you admire about the person.

HOW TO OBSERVE

Make sure to compliment someone and use #NationalComplimentDay to post on social media.
