What is your reaction when someone offers you a compliment? Do you feel grateful or awkward? Do you try to reciprocate or to change the topic?

If you feel uncomfortable, you can keep in mind that when refusing a compliment, we might just be stealing the joy of the person who offers it.

In this video, John Arnott shows us to see compliments as gifts that should be appreciated and accepted. By doing so, positive benefits can be felt by both the recipient and the complimenter.

To help you accomplish this mindset, never forget that you have values and there will always be things you do that will please others.

Do you agree with this point of view? I would love to hear your thoughts about it!
