November challenge: Compliment a stranger

This month, I challenge you to walk up to a complete stranger and offer them a genuine compliment.  Anything goes:  maybe you like their haircut, their jacket, or their glasses; think they drive a cool car; admire their well-kept yard or garden; or are impressed by their prowess in an athletic or artistic pursuit.  Offer your complement honestly and with a smile.  Then see what happens.

I guarantee that this simple action will elevate and empower two people — the recipient and you.  It’s a win-win situation, and something we could all do a little more often in our day-to-day routines.
