“I can live for two months on a good compliment.” – Mark Twain

We all know praise is vitally important to children. But it is of essential importance to adults, too. We all want to be taken seriously. We all want our qualities and achievements to be acknowledged and recognised. Only when we receive this kind of recognition do we feel entirely accepted.

The more you sincerely praise others in business and life, the better they will perform, and the more they will do for you.

We must praise others. You should appreciate people directly and personally. Praise people in front of their peers and send them handwritten notes of appreciation.                     

It is one of the best investments you will ever make. Build up the confidence of the people around you, and you will reap incredible rewards.

It is often said the strongest of all our human needs is the need to be appreciated.

“There are two things people want more than sex and money – recognition and praise.” – Mary Kay Ash
