"Do you know that after a show with significant public figures , like a president for example, when the lights do down and the cameras and microphones are turned off, they often ask me the same question...?
'Did I do okay?'
It just goes to show that even people in high positions who are regularly in the public eye feel the need for reassurance - a little pat on the back."
Feel free to compliment someone today...(maybe you)
