A Simple Sincere Compliment Can Make Someone’s Day
There are so many opportunities to copy and paste things on Facebook, and I usually don't get involved. But something convinced me yesterday to participate in the "Monday Compliment Challenge." I saw this on my friend's wall, posted my name, then proceded to read her saying some qualities she admires in me. Well that sure was a nice start to my day!
Wanting to pay it forward and brighten the day of some other people, I decided to copy and paste the following onto my page: Hello! Monday COMPLIMENT CHALLENGE: comment your name and I'll tell you something I like about you! Don't be scared. #copyandpaste
My friends quickly "lined up" posting their names and waiting for me to say something nice about them. I pretty much wrote down the first thing that came to mind, so it was easy. And I think it made everyone feel good.
Research has shown that the same area of the brain is affected whether a person receives money or a compliment. Compliments don't cost anything to give so I think this Facebook challenge is a good one for everyone.
Have you or will you consider doing the Facebook Compliment Challenge? Do you tend to compliment people during your day?
