Build Your Confidence by Playing “The Compliment Game”

Not everyone is comfortable around people they don’t know, but a little confidence can go a long way. Try this exercise to boost your confidence in social situations.

This advice comes from writer and author Ramit Sethi of I Will Teach You To Be Rich as part of his new Ultimate Guide to Social Skills. It’s very simple: the next time you’re out at an event, or a coffee shop, or otherwise in the presence of strangers, give someone a compliment. It doesn’t have to be big, and you’re not trying to make friends with them—just compliment that guy on his cool shirt, or the barista on their quick service. That’s all. Not only will you probably give them a small boost of confidence, you’ll feel more confident yourself.

Challenge yourself to try this a few times in a 24-hour period. It’s amazing how far something as simple as a small compliment can go into making you more comfortable around others.
