"I like your jeans." "I like your brown shoes." "Have a nice day!" Don't you love it when someone says something nice about you? Doesn't that brighten your day? Imagine how wonderful your day would be if someone said something nice about you, just because. Brett Westcott and Cameron Brown, also known as The Compliment Guys at Purdue University, are doing exactly that. "When people come up after they've had a bad day and say thanks for a good compliment, that brightens my whole day," says Cameron.

  • The Compliment Guys are successful outside their campus as well. Encourage your friends to watch the video; inspire them to be nice; lead by example. 
  • Consider starting an organization where you reach out to the less fortunate in your area, and let them know that they are also appreciated.
  • Make it a point to say something nice to at least 5 people every day. Be sincere in the compliments - it will make your life richer as well.
