Sticks and stones

A few years ago I made a New Years’ Resolution that I still practice: I never keep an honest compliment to myself.  I promised myself that I would vocalize any authentic and positive thought about someone else.

I believe we underestimate how simple words of praise can induce positive, even life-altering changes.

Next time you’re silently admiring anything about a friend, colleague or total stranger, why not break your silence?
