Find something nice to say . . . .

Are you ready? Let's try this! Give five heartfelt, honest to goodness compliments today. It costs nothing but a little time, energy, and the desire to make your life and the lives of others better. Compliments are defined as gracious words, given freely, which create happiness for both the giver and the receiver. Who doesn't love a good compliment? It's amazing that such a small, simple skill like giving away compliments can change the way you view yourself and the world around you. 
Each time you give a compliment, you focus completely on the other person. Be sincere. Actively look for positive traits or attributes. It's not that hard! By doing this on a regular basis, i.e. 5 times a day, you begin to see how richly multifaceted people really are. People's positive traits jump out at you. Your thought processes shifts from looking for the worst in people to looking for the best. Being proactive spills over into your life. You see the possibilities, not the obstacles. Compliment giving is a jump-start for looking at the world in a positive, refreshing, stimulating, and creative way. 

Not sure what to say? Give these a try.
