How do you handle a compliment and what it has to do with achieving your goals

Let me ask you this one simple question: how do you react when someone gives you a compliment?

Do you say: “Oh, this is just what I do!…” Or do you think that what you’ve done is not good enough?.. Or do you squirm because you feel uncomfortable that someone has given you a compliment? Or worse, do you question who is this person to make this statement and doubt whether they are qualified to make this judgment?

Notice your answers and ask yourself what is stopping you from accepting the compliments graciously. Think about how other person might feel: they’ve tried to say something nice to you but got a negative or rude response…

Moreover, learning to handle compliments graciously is directly related to feeling much more ease in achieving your big goals. In this video I share with you one strategy that will make achieving your goals more effortless! Watch this video below.

* This video has been recorded less than two weeks before I gave birth to our little Anna about 4 years ago. This is why I breath quite heavily in the video. Happy birthday Anna!


In the comments below please share your observations on how you handle compliments and on applying the strategy I have shared with you in this video.
