All of us have experienced the positive feeling when someone says something nice to us and we know they mean it. A genuine compliment or appreciation often takes 2-3 words but can result in instant happiness and an immediate shift in your mood. Here’s a list of some of those 2-3 word phrases that can change somebody’s life, even if for a few hours or days – of course, you can’t use all of these with everyone:
- Thank you
- Appreciate it
- Great job
- Fantastic service
- Excellent idea
- Nice shirt / shoes / bag…
- You look gorgeous / pretty / young…
- You’re so kind / thoughtful / amazing…
- You’re the best
- I love you
I think someone’s quality of life and level of happiness can be measured in the number of compliments they give and receive. What was your last compliment?
“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” -Leo Buscaglia
