Most of us have no problem giving gifts; but some may find it difficult to accept them. Accept gifts graciously. Not only is it impolite, but also unattractive to reject a gift or compliment. Remove the clique sayings:”It was really nothing,” or “oh, this old thing,” or “I just bought it on sale.” Simply say, “Thank you!” – maybe include a smile:)
By accepting graciously, you increase the chances of pleasure-giving. Grant the giver the full satisfaction of this compliment or gift. You can practice this yourself by giving three genuine compliments each day this week to different people and notice how they respond. Then, notice how you feel about the response. In addition to accepting graciously, don’t forget to be gracious. Say thank you often.
