Welcome to before breakfast a production of iHeartRadio.

Good morning. This is Laura. Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is to accept compliments graciously many of us have a tendency to bat compliments away or belittle ourselves and response, but it's much healthier for ourselves and others to come up with ways to acknowledge the truth of the compliment and just be thankful.

Take it like a few others. This week comes from Meredith fine men's nubuck Bragg better Master the art of fearless self-promotion. Some people are over-the-top braggart, but a lot of us suffer from the delusion that good work speaks for itself it can but often it needs a little amplification.

Fineman talks about a sketch From the Inside Amy Schumer show when a group of female friends go around complementing each other when someone says something nice the recipient responds by immediately thrashing herself when it gets to Amy she decides to accept the compliment and her friends had just blow off. Yep. Pretty much many of us finding notes have been taught to overdo the modesty. However, it's totally possible for you to accept praise without your head blowing off. She writes it letting others celebrate your accomplishments can make you feel good. Let your legacy carry on and also bring Goodwill and joy to those around you

One obvious response to a compliment is just thank you. You can in fact just leave it at that if a simple thank-you feels a little incomplete then come up with something that reflects. Well on the person who complimented you like thank you. That's so thoughtful of you to point out tour. Thank you. I really appreciate your support. If you like you can use the complement to Pivot to a trait that you feel more sure. If someone tells you that your presentation was Brilliance, you don't have to say yes. I'm brilliant. You could say thank you. I worked really hard on it or thank you. I'm glad you thought all my practice paid off.

If it makes sense to accept the compliment by sharing some of the Basking. Well, you can go for that too. If someone tells you that she loves your shoes. Thanks. My sister helped me pick them out. She has such great taste or even better. You can always pivot the compliment into a direction of more great things in the future if someone compliments you on how well you ran that meeting you can say thanks. I'd love to present to some bigger groups in the future or someone compliments report. Thanks. Who else do you think I can share this with all of these do more good in the world than saying the equivalent of what this whole thing?

So today when someone compliments you practice accepted the compliment don't downplay your accomplishments and don't deny what the person says say. Thank you and whatever else feels most authentic to you accepting gifts is far more gracious than turning them down and denying a compliment is really the equivalent of the letter.

Better to have more good feelings in this world.
