September 2nd- a little praise goes a long way
Feelings of worth can flourish only in an atmosphere where individual differences are appreciated, mistakes are tolerated, communication is open and rules are flexible — the kind of atmosphere that is found in a nurturing family.
Never underestimate the value of praise. No matter where you are , at work, at home, or at school, a thank you for a job well done, is always welcome. I think that is what Labor Day represents. A THANK YOU for the work you do. Praise will motivate us and others to do their jobs better. It promotes loyalty and good relationships. Compliments can brighten someones day and even change their lives.
Sometimes the smallest bit of encouragement is what is needed to get us through the day. When a compliment is given, others take in the good noticed in them and in turn they respond and can pass along the shared recognition . When given and taken sincerely , we rise to the occasion with positivity from the place , gratitude grows and flourishes. A ripple effect occurs.
When giving and receiving a compliment, Mindufullness is present. By being gracious to the compliment given we honor people for their ability and boost their self confidence and ours as well. The easiest way to grow and develop confidence its to give and receive kind and empowering words.
Likewise taking a moment in time, just to relax and appreciate a compliment , opens up our feel good harmones and sets a time for healthier emotions. Remember what comes around goes around, as we learn how to compliment and receive goodness, it gives out from ourselves and into serving the greater good of humanity. So give compliments and receive them graciously.
I can live for two months on a good compliment.
