Since I wrote the first chapter of the compliment series, I have received some requests from readers to give them some ideas about compliments, so I thought it may be a good exercise to make a compliment list with 100 compliments we can give others that will cover different areas of life.
By limiting myself to phrases that only focus on the other person and not on myself (because complimenting is giving, not taking credit and focusing on yourself), I got to 182.
When you read the list, you will find there is a formula. Phrases like “You are so…”, “You are very…”, “You are such a…”, “You are good with…”, “This (behavior) is inspiring…” can be attached to any good description.
You will also find that you can use adjectives by themselves, like: Brilliant! Awesome! Great! Fantastic! Amazing! Perfect! Inspiring! Beautiful!
Here is my compliment list. I suggest that you mark the compliments you find useful, change them to suit your needs and keep this list somewhere handy, so you can refer to it daily when you need a compliment idea.
