If you’re like me (and many other people I know), you might have some trouble accepting compliments and other types of positive feedback.
Here’s a 4-step process I invite you to try, starting today!
- When the compliment comes your way, do your best to take it in.
- Allow for the possibility that it is true, no matter what the source or the situation.
- Let go of everything that gets in the way of believing it.
- Say “thank you.”
Okay! Now, let’s practice.

Let’s see if I have any recent photos that might help us do better accepting compliments.
No matter what you think of those photos, here’s another chance for you to practice accepting compliments:
I value all your reactions to this post, very much.
Thanks and compliments to all who do their best accepting compliments and to you — of course! — for paying me the compliment of visiting here, today.
