World Compliment Day is celebrated every March 1 to spread joy through verbal affirmations of appreciation.
When was the last time someone gave you a genuine compliment? Not just one of those things that people say to fill the awkward silence but an actual, legitimate compliment?
Do you recall the way it made your day and made you feel appreciated? It’s a lovely feeling, right?!
Appreciation makes people love life–and are often even motivated by it.
Studies have been showing that people who receive compliments on their work are much more likely to improve their performance than those who are not complimented.
For those wishing to have a positive impact on the world, giving a compliment is a powerful and easy tool!
Remember, though, that empty compliments are meaningless, so it’s best for compliments to be genuine.
There is nothing better than knowing that you make a difference in other people’s lives and that what you do matters.
History of World Compliment Day -This creative day was originated by Hans Poortvliet, a recognition professional in the Netherlands. -In the early 2000s, after he started the initiative in his own country, the success of it made him wonder if making it worldwide instead of just national would eventually turn it into “The Most Positive Day in The World”.
How to Celebrate World Compliment Day -Giving compliments might seem difficult at first, but it doesn’t have to be! Really, it’s just a matter of observing something good about another person and then communicating it to them. - Even though 61% of people say compliments embarrass them, that doesn’t mean they don’t need to hear them.And World Compliment day is a great time to practice!
Give Verbal Compliments (Obviously!)
The best way to give a compliment is to be sure that what you are saying is sincere and heartfelt.
It doesn’t need to be earth-shattering, of course.
But if you can offer a deeper compliment and tell them what an impact they have made in your life, that’s even more meaningful!
Send a Card or Note
Handwritten notes and letters have gone by the wayside since the invention of the computer.
But a handwritten note or card always adds a personal touch!
Keeping a stack of blank cards in your desk or bag makes it easy to leave a note for someone, even on the go.
It doesn’t have to be very long, just a short little message to say something nice is perfect.
Thank Service People
Another thing to do on World Compliment Day is remembering to smile and say thank you when you encounter people who do a daily service for you.
Share the Passion
Feel free to offer reminders to friends and family so that they can pass them on as well.
The planet is to be a positive and enjoyable place to live the more people learn to appreciate each other.
Other Compliment Opportunities
People in education, medical professionals, and public servants are just a few other areas in which compliments might be effective.
With a little thought, it is sure to reveal itself who in life could use a boost!
