“You are the best at…”
When you head off to work in the morning it can be easy to put your head down and ignore the people around you. Just trudging through the day without thinking about the people in your office or life who might be struggling to feel like you notice their hard work. Take a quick minute to tell someone what they are the best at. How do they always shine bright? It’s a quick and easy way to make anyone feel a whole lot better about life.
“…saved the day by…”
There is usually at least one person who saves the day. Call them out by name! If there is someone in your life who is stepping up, helping out, saving your day when you need it most, this is an excellent opportunity to compliment them on that behavior!
“I like the way you…”
Everyone from roommates to strangers can fall into this category. You never know what someone is struggling with but it’s easy to see where they feel most put together and where they are trying hard. Stop and tell someone what you life about the way they are handing those important things in their lives!
“Nobody works harder than you!”
We all have bad days. When we are feeling off or slacking in some department, chances are there is someone who is picking up our slack. Give them a shout out today by complimenting the fact that they work harder than anyone to keep things running smoothly.
“Your sacrifice for me and other complete strangers is amazing, thank you.”
Do you encounter public servants in your daily travels? Stop and give them a simple compliment on their sacrifice and braveness. Too often we overlook the fact that they are doing selfless work and often encountering dangerous situations in order to make our lives carefree! A single compliment on their choices and sacrifices can mean a lot!
“Your dedication to…inspires me!”
How many people in your life are doing things that you wish you could do? Instead of feeling envious, turn those feelings around and compliment them on their dedication and effort. It takes a lot to make “dream worthy” things happen for yourself so chances are, they’re working hard behind the scenes. They deserve a compliment. Who knows, you might make a friend who can help you with your own journey.
“You make my life so much easier!”
There are a lot of people in my life who do things behind the scenes that keep my day to day life running smoothly. If you are encountering people who do this for you, stop and give them a compliment. They deserve to hear that you recognize all the things they do for you. It will make them feel happy and appreciated!
“…I really like your…”
This is probably the simplest of all the compliments in the world. I wouldn’t recommend overusing a generic compliment like “I like that” but instead take the time to personalize the compliment. Tell each person what you like specifically relating to them. They will love that you’ve put some thought into their compliment and taking the time to think about all the people in your life who have incredible skills and styles and determination will in turn brighten your day! How lucky we all are to be surrounded by such fantastic people!
“Your smile is contagious!”
I always notice when people are smiling around me. It doesn’t matter if I’m passing someone on the street or sitting near them on the bus, a smile truly is contagious and in this busy, crazy, chaotic, and sometimes mean world…a smile is worth stoping to compliment! A quick and easy compliment like this can truly brighten the world.
“You are one of a kind.”
It’s really not hard to find the people in our lives to stand out. Giving them compliments does not have to be difficult. Try this one out the next time you see one of those stand out people in your life!
