Have you ever noticed that some compliments make you feel like jumping up and down and some feel “meh”?
Have you ever considered that how you feel about the compliment might be linked to how much you enjoy doing the thing that evoked the compliment?
When someone says that I made a nice meal, I feel “meh.” When someone says I asked a great question, my heart sings.
When your heart sings at a compliment, I think of it as your Native Geniuses jumping up and down because someone saw them, recognized what they were doing, and appreciated their value.
Try this as a way to tune into your Native Geniuses. Notice compliments that make your heart sing. Ask yourself how you enjoyed doing what evoked the compliment.
Go out there and be a compliment detective!
