Most people love to be noticed, but few know how to accept a compliment gracefully. It’s just like accepting a gift, even if you don't like it~you always say thank you. You don't want to hurt the feelings of the person giving you the gift.
It’s the same for complements.
When someone gives you a compliment wether you agree or not, just say THANK YOU.
You have to OWN IT! Look them in eye, smile and take a moment to appreciate what they have said, then be gracious by saying thank you.
When you accept a compliment it shows the other person that you trust their judgment and opinion.
Here are great responses for how to accept a complement:
Thank you, that means a lot.
I appreciate that, thank you.
I really needed that today, Thank you.
Thank you, that’s a lovely thing to say.
Thank you, that makes me feel really good.
Thank you, that’s so nice.
Thank you, you're very kind.
and remember if it fits, give them a compliment back… never hurts to leave some sparkle every where you go….
