Do you have the 'Yeah But...' Syndrome?

Jacqui Louder

“That’s great James, you did really well”

James: “Yeah but... I didn’t win”

Human beings seem to find it easier, and more natural, to see the negative side of most things, including ourselves. I have a rule with all athletes and general clients alike, that if you receive a compliment you must say thank you. Compliments are the giver’s opinion, not the receiver’s opinion, so when you respond with nothing or a disagreement of that opinion it’s rude and basically telling the other person their opinion is not worth anything or you don’t value it enough to accept it.
