Every Day, Tell at Least One Person Something You Like, Admire, or Appreciate about Them
"How often do you remember (or take the time), to tell people how much you like, admire, or appreciate them? For many people, it's not often enough. In fact, when I ask people how often they receive heartfelt compliments from others, I hear answers like  "I can't remember the last time I received a compliment," "Hardly ever," and, sadly, "I never receive them".

"There are several reasons why we don't vocally let others know about our positive feelings toward them. I've heard excuses like, "They don't to hear me say that -- they already know," and "I do admire her, but I'm too embarrassed to say anything". But when you ask the would-be recipient if he or she enjoys being given genuine compliments and positive feedback, the answer nine time out of ten is, "I love it".
