I knew it. We, humans, are wired in a way that we don’t compliment ourselves, and if someone does, we call it self-praising. Isn’t it ironic that it’s a good habit to compliment others but not oneself?
Now, imagine what happens when you compliment others. They smile and say thank you. Isn’t it? Now think if your words can put a smile on someone’s face, what will happen if you will say them to yourself? The answer is obvious. You will smile. You will feel confident. You will feel motivated.

There are even more benefits to complimenting yourself. Let’s talk more about why you should compliment yourself and what compliments you should give.
You are your biggest influencer.
We get influenced by other people in our life. But the reality is we are our bigger influencers. We become what we say to ourselves. Our brain is malleable, and every thought that we have about ourselves creates a strong connection, and that’s how we start performing. No one can impact you as strongly as you can impact yourself. So, by changing your thought pattern, you change your brain, and thus it alters the way you live your life. Understand everything is interconnected.

You will be able to accomplish more.
No motivational speech will be impactful until you motivate yourself. You are capable of encouraging and discouraging yourself. And that’s powerful. If you keep on criticizing yourself, you will end up feeling bad, and thus you won’t be able to achieve your goals. But when you start believing in your capabilities and think that you deserve more, then things change dramatically. Your body works on your brain’s instructions, and once you have control over your thoughts, you can compel your body to work accordingly. Thus you will be able to achieve and accomplish more in life.
