Social media sites contain a lot of negativity – it’s unfortunate how many people use social media to criticize, condemn and complain.  Our personal social media sites represent our personal brand and are a large part of the impression we make on others.  Do you want to be seen as a complainer or a leader?

Take the 21 Day Carnegie Challenge to not post any criticism, complaints, condemnations, or negativity and instead post sincere praise, appreciation, and recognition to status updates that you like, respect and admire.  How many genuine compliments can you post to the social media sites of those in your network?  How many authentic “likes” can you offer?  How many positive comments can you share?  Keep track of ways in which your social network responds to your efforts by focusing on the good in others, and report on the change on the 21-Day Carnegie Challenge Blog!

Each month, Dale Carnegie Training will award a prize to the most inspiring blog entry.

Join conversations with others also taking the challenge, comment below to get started!

    I appreciate the collection of tips. These are mot only very realistic and effective. While a lot people belive in aggression and this misunderstand it of task orientation. The effective leaders run teams for longer time and produce better results.

    I hear you, however, you would have to work tirelessly trying to get them engaged and it could end up costing more in effort that just paying them proper market-related salaries. Nothing disengages an employee more than knowing that they’re being under-paid.

    Attempted to take course first in either 1987(?) or 1988(?), but had to break off and leave because something came up, I had to leave; my second attempt the very next year (1988 or 1989) I completed you’re. Remember my class leaders had vibrant, lively personalities, great leaders, thoroughly enjoyed being with them and learned lots of stuff. Been thinking about them past few days but cannot remember their last name or his first name, though (her name is Jannie sp ?). If you could find their names would there be some possible way could get that to me? I would greatly appreciate it, thank you. Ken.

    Prior to my reading the book “how to win friends and influence people” I have been trying to incorporate many of these principles into my life, but after reading the book, the clarity of how and why became clear and I am now achieving great success. I am also looking at ways to take things even to a higher level as I truly believe that these principles are more important than any technical knowledge I might feel are vital in my career and life. I’m now on a wonderful journey and enjoying the daily changes I’m seeing from everyone I meet and engage with.

    Mitt mål är att vara så vänlig som jag kan under 3 veckor.. Inte kritisera, inte sprida negativism, inte påpeka saker med negativa förtecken. Bara göra mitt allra allra bästa för att säga positiva saker till människor i lin omgivning under tre veckor . Jag är söker på att det kommer art påverka mig inen positiv riktning och få mig att bli en mer uppskattad människa och bli mer positiv.
