Go on...tell them.

A couple of years ago my wife told me that she thinks I have a photographic memory. 

I don't know what it was in particular that made her say it, and I don't even know if it's true. But she believed it, and she told me and now I believe it. 

That's the funny thing about pointing out what you admire about people. It has the capacity to convince them that there's more to them than what they may have realised. That they're capable of more than they believed. That they're more powerful than they thought.  It's uncovering a jewel in their life and holding up to their face and saying..."hey, did you know you had this?"

It opens up a whole new world to them. 

Don't let a little shyness stop you from sharing with someone what you admire in them. 

It has the capacity to change the way they see themselves. 

It has the capacity to change their life.
