...most clerks in stores have been very tired, stressed-out, and very tired from buyers like me. I asked them how they were doing and told them that they’ll be home soon in no time. Sometimes, just acknowledging them that they’re not just there to scan my items and talk to them even for just a second, makes them feel better and hang in there for a few more minutes till they go home. Also, it helps to give them sincere compliments on things that they’re wearing, ie. watches, earrings, or nail polishes. It’s nice seeing them smile. 4 months ago

That was my “thank-you” line over the weekend. The first one was yesterday to a bank officer. (I forgot his title.) He helped me and I told him that he’s my hero. He laughed and said jokingly that, that’s what everybody has been calling him the whole day.
Another one was today. A nice lady let me cut in line to the cashier since I only had one item to buy and she had a few. It was so nice of her. I thanked her and said, You’re my hero. And she laughed and said thank you back.
I noticed that people respond to it more than just saying thank you. It’s almost like validating the good deed that was done. 7 months ago
Lots of people at the workplace have been complimenting me on my shoes and dresses. That’s telling me my wardrobe is appreciated so yay!
My boyfriend tells me how witty my texts are and how they make him laugh. That makes me smile when I hear that. 8 months ago
In my new role there has been a little bit of crossover with clients, as I remained in the same industry but a more specialised area. I had a really nice surprise yesterday and today, when I received calls from two of my favourite former clients, who I discovered also deal with the company I work for now.
They both remembered me without me needing to reintroduce myself.
I was overwhelmed and with how delighted they sounded to know where they can find me now. One of them also said things are not the same at the place I left behind. Good to know I left a good impression and that doing a job to the best of my capabilities made a difference to them. Yay for hardworking people getting recognised! 9 months ago
After working at my other job for over five years, with barely a nice word coming my way, this job I have a lot to be grateful for.
I’ve had clients say very complimentary things about my phone manner, and field reps have reported that clients are really happy to be dealing with me. A client today said,’you have a smiling, happy voice on the phone.’ Positive feedback is such a nice thing to hear and I will try to make sure I pay it back and forward :) 9 months ago
When lighting and angles are right I can look good in photos. I was at an event last week and had my camera on me. One of the children asked to borrow my camera and took a photo of me. It turned out well, and I told him he was a great photographer. He replied, ‘and you’re quite pretty.’ Aw sweet! :) 12 months ago
I was sitting right next to an older lady that was singing the hymns during Easter mass. She has an operatic voice. It was lovely. I felt blessed listening to her. I had to tell her after the mass that she has a beautiful voice. 13 months ago
I was at a wedding on the weekend. I had contact information for a friend coordinating transport on the day. When I called the friend, she said, “I was hoping it was you. My friend and I saw your name on the list and remembered meeting you at the bride’s birthday. We enjoyed meeting you so much last time!” 14 months ago
I’ve had too much yin and not enough yang energy lately, motivation has not been high.
Compiling a list of compliments will help me acknowledge my strengths and motivate me. It can’t hurt to try anyways!
Note- I might decide to insert compliments I’ve given to myself, not just compliments bestowed by others ;) Nothing wrong with self appreciation! 14 months ago
I told her that I couldn’t believe she tolerated our other co-workers for so long. I probably wouldn’t last if it wasn’t for her. She said, I probably left if you didn’t come along.
Yeah. I’m glad I have her as a co-worker and now, a friend.

Said to me by my 2-yr-old nephew last week. Best compliment I’ve heard in a long time. 18 months ago
