When I get stuck, I tend to scroll through YouTube to “get ideas.” I’m still working on it, but it’s not a complete vice as recently I came across a video that analyzed what makes celebrities charismatic. As it turns out, charming people compliment to grow excellence.
I used to believe that focusing too much on the good makes you complacent. As such, I thought that the best type of compliment is the one that makes the receiver aware of weaknesses. Ironically enough, as much as I craved recognition, I would feel uncomfortable when I received it because I thought that in some way I didn’t deserve it.
Consequently, I wouldn’t give compliments, and I ran from compliments. I was in a downward charisma spiral!
Mark Twain famously said, “I can live for two months on a good compliment.” If it cost me nothing to give somebody two months of energy, why wouldn’t I do it? No wonder we can’t help but admire the people who compliment to grow excellence.
How often do you compliment? How can you do it more often?
