“Flattery feels a lot better than insults.”
Do you often feel uncomfortable to take the praise in? I just have 2 words for you “OWN IT!”. There should be no shame, guilt or embarrassment in doing so.
For some, even thinking about their positive traits makes them uncomfortable. Some people find it much harder to see what is right about them.
C’mon, cut yourself some slack – Some days you’ll crush it, other days not so much !
Get over the negative stigma or fear of being judged. The motivation for one’s goals should be one’s own passion or love towards achieving it. Your mission should never be something you need to do in order to be accepted by others!
There is nothing wrong in speaking about yourself positively and absolutely nothing wrong in happily acknowledging it when someone compliments, just take it and feel happy about it.
I often say that I am quite braggy and I love being that way. I am my own cheerleader. It is very important to be your own cheerleader
Being our own cheerleader is not about bragging or just showing off. It is about celebrating your successes; however small they might be and patting yourself on your back!
I strongly feel we need to appreciate ourselves and share our success stories. It will not only help us, but also others who are looking for role models, who are looking for experiences.
Always remember with self-appreciation comes self-love.
The mindfulness that comes with “Self-appreciation” helps you be conscious about and acknowledge your own positive features. Of course, be appreciative towards your weaknesses too.
Furthermore, people are more likely to appreciate someone who appreciates themselves.
When you begin to appreciate yourself and give yourself the due credit , it helps you to fuel your passion better . This makes you more self-aware , in-turn enables you to build your own personal brand .
A story you can tell others about the real you – not your job title nor the industry you work in.
Building yourself a brand is extremely valuable not because you can “brag” on social media because you have worked/working on your true passion!

"There is a story and a vision which makes us gravitate towards cinema. Even as we worked as assistants on ads, we realised that cinema was our true calling," say Gunpreet Kaur Mann and Deepali Singh Raseen.

Years of experience as assistant costume designer followed, which eventually led her to getting a break.
A ‘thank you’ makes a lot of difference in the way any woman in your life sees herself in your eyes. It might even mean the world to her.
I have not received any appreciation in the past. Probably never will. This is the experience of ample women across the globe. The expectation to be thanked for all the sacrifices she makes to keep others happy has faded. Yet the urge to hear few words of acknowledgement always lingers.
There is never a day when she pushes off her own burdens. She knows not to give up on people she loves. Women in general, are givers by nature and hence, give without asking anything in return. They have been the care givers and lovers since centuries however receive no appreciation.
It will mean the world to your mother if you answer her calls. If your sister seems lost give her a hug and assure her about her strengths. Tomorrow, there might come a day when you would have to make your daughter feel empowered with few words of wisdom every now and then. For the children to feel wanted and loved, you must be able to spare some quality time with your wife and be present in the moment.
