From the Author:

Many people overlook a simple strategy to enhance their well-being, improve their relationships and be the positive influence they desire around them--giving compliments. Why? We're afraid we'll sound silly, worry about brown-nosing or being misunderstood, or don't know how to give meaningful praise! Yet compliments are a way to gain more daily joy for ourselves as well as be the loving presence we in the world that we always thought we'd be.

Compliments are not merely etiquette or sugary, self-help-styled positive thinking. Compliments reframe people's mindsets regarding what they see and what they say amid hurried lives, stressed relationships and a growing culture of callousness.

Just as little things that irk us and leave us feeling taken for granted add up to major stressors, simple recognition and kind words reap abundant goodwill and success. To give a compliment, you have to shift your focus from lack, impatience, resentment or over-familiarity to see with a blend of generosity, respect, gratitude or other attitude-shifting qualities that you share in words of praise.

We let other people respect our spouses, assume someone else is complimenting our friends, worry praise will spoil our children and think others will get ahead of us if we compliment them.

Yet simple compliments interrupt frustrations, to stop someone from going home to berate their children or set a relationship beset with criticism onto a new track of connection and even romance.

"Appreciative words are the powerful force for good on earth." Dr. George Crane

Don't we need this more than ever?
