Compliments: How To Accept Them Graciously

in

Do you remember the last time someone gave you a compliment about your looks or your work?

Did you accept that compliment with grace and appreciation, or did you, like most people, thank the person for giving it to you, and then immediately try to justify it?

Learning to accept compliments is an important self-growth and development step.

Perhaps you feel, like most people, that to accept compliments is to start on the pathway to self-pride and no one likes an egotistical person.

There is a big difference between having pride in one’s achievements and being egotistical and this is something that we all need to learn to counter the negativity of our self-talk.

Try saying a simple and genuine thank you the next time someone offers you a compliment or praises you for a job well done.
