Thank you.

imageHow many times have you either heard or (worse yet) been part of one of these conversations:

“Your hair looks great!”
“Oh, thanks, but I really need a trim.”

“I love your dress!”
“Oh, this old thing?”

“Thank you so much for your help.”
“Oh, it was nothing.”

“Congratulations on your award. You must be very proud.”
“Oh, it’s not really a big deal.”

I hope that you have never been guilty of any of the above responses. But if you have, now is your opportunity to change that.

Think about it this way – If someone whom you respect gives you advice about how to do something differently or better, you would listen, wouldn’t you? Then why would you discount their praise? If someone looks at you as a role model or an example, either by your dress, your work, or something else, why would you diminish yourself in that person’s eyes by not accepting their kind words? Let’s completely forget about the fact that YOU DESERVE IT!

So, let’s take it from the top…

“Your hair looks great!”
“Thanks! I love being red!”

“I love your dress!”
“Thank you! I feel ten years younger in this color!”

“Thank you so much for your help.”
“You’re welcome. It was my pleasure.”

“Congratulations on your award. You must be very proud.”
“Thank you. I appreciate your kind words.”

And when all else fails, how about just “Thank you” – period.
