A compliment can be a powerful tool for those who wish to make a difference in the world. It’s important to remember that compliments without substance are useless.

World Compliment Day provides an opportunity to share your happiness with others. It is a great feeling to know that your actions make a difference and that they matter. It’s easy to give a compliment to someone today!

Hans Poortvliet is a Dutch recognition professional who created this creative day. After he had started the initiative in his country in the early 2000s, he was inspired by the success to see if it could be made worldwide.

This is an ambitious goal. However, Mr. Poortvliet believes that if everyone took the time to compliment three people in their lives, every country, town and city on the planet would be closer to this goal.

This is a day that anyone can participate in. On his website (, Mr. Poortvliet urges the compliments and notes of appreciation be in words only, not in gifts. Because it only costs a small amount of effort, everyone can take part. This one, unlike commercialized days is totally free and can be incorporated into any budget.

This is a great idea! It is great to have a day off, especially with the high-priced holidays this time of year.

Although it may seem difficult to give compliments at first, it is not impossible. It’s as simple as noticing something positive about someone and communicating that to them. Although 61% of people don’t like compliments, it doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t hear them.

It is not always easy to express admiration or appreciation in a relationship. They may have to be learned. With intention and purpose, compliments can make a difference in relationships that improve people’s lives. World Compliment Day is a great opportunity to practice this!

These are just a few of the many ways you can celebrate World Compliment Day together with family, friends, coworkers and neighbors, as well as strangers.

It is important to make sure you give compliments that are sincere and genuine. You don’t have to say anything shocking, but it doesn’t have to be. It doesn’t have to be anything major. You can simply tell someone that you admire their work or like their hairstyle. If you can give a deeper compliment, and tell them how much they have impacted your life, it’s even better!

Since the invention of computers, handwritten letters and notes have been lost. A handwritten note or card adds an extra personal touch to any message. A stack of blank cards can be kept in your bag or desk to make it easy to leave a message for someone even when you are on the move. You don’t need to write a long message, but a simple note to say something nice can suffice.

On World Compliment Day, remember to smile and thank people for doing a daily service. You might run into a bus driver, a cashier at the grocery store, cab drivers, or someone you see in the gas station or store. Let them know how great they were and what you admire about them. It will make a difference in their day. Sometimes service can be quite thankless, but a smile and sincere thanks can make a difference!

In the days leading to World Compliment Day you can remind your family and friends to spread it around. It is more likely that the planet will be positive and enjoyable if more people know about it.

It’s important to think outside the box and inquire about other areas where compliments could be of benefit. There are many other areas where compliments can be useful, such as public servants, doctors, and educators. It is easy to see who could benefit from a boost by giving it some thought.

Perhaps Mr. Poortvliet is right in his goal to make World Compliment Day The Most Positive Day In The World.
