7 Things You Shouldn't do when You Receive a Compliment ...


Because you might feel insecure or even shy (just like I do so very often), a lot of you might not know what to do or how to behave when you receive a compliment. Dale Carnegie said that “Success is getting what you want. Happiness is wanting what you get.” He couldn’t be more right!
