Giving Thanks is Not Just One Day a Year!

Do you become embarrassed when someone gives you a compliment or praises your work? It’s surprising how many people respond with, “It was nothing.” If you’re one of them, stop! This type of response is a subtle rejection of the person giving you the compliment and a subconscious hit to your self-esteem.

When you receive a compliment, accept the praise as well earned and say, “Thanks! I appreciate that.” If the compliment was for a team or partner effort, mention the contributions of others. “Thanks. I appreciate that. My partner/whole team worked hard to pull this together. I’ll share your comments with them.”

Remember to smile!

I wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving. I am grateful for my loyal followers and those new to my blog. May you enjoy the warmth and blessings of family and friends during this holiday season!

“We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.”

 Thornton Wilder, American playwright and novelist
