Flattery Will Get You Everywhere

On my way to the elevators, I walked past one of the janitors who works in the building. She looked at me and broke into a smile.
“You look like a movie star!” she gushed.
I beamed and instantly felt like a million bucks. Someone give that woman a raise and a penthouse on the 8th floor, pronto!
If you want to transform someone’s ordinary mood into something extraordinary, then I say follow her lead.

    great inspiration! reminds me of something.
    a close friend and i have been doing a sort of “pass forward” (long before that movie or tv show) for a long time now. our idea, was that if one is paying attention, certain opportunites would arise where a small effort on our part, and could mean the world to the recepient. better if it could be without the recepient’s knowledge.
    give it a try!

    What a compliment to top all compliments from strangers!
    (This compliment doesn’t count when my mother tells it to me.)
