Your ability to receive compliments symbolizes
how well you receive love.
Be a wide receiver.
~ Alan Cohen
I woke up today and forgot that it was Wednesday. I almost missed today’s Notable Quotable. Being short on time, I thought I’d give a self-explanatory quote from Alan Cohen. Receiving compliments with grace and ease is not only good for our own self-love, self-worth and esteem, it’s affirmation for the one giving the compliment. It’s an all-around win-win.
If you find yourself about to negate a compliment, stop yourself and instead, simply say “Thank You. I appreciate that.” It might feel weird at first but it will become a second-nature response to future compliments. Start today. Be that wide receiver!
