One of the nicest things that you can say to someone who has just got something good is…
“Well deserved”


A congratulation is good for luck, windfall, chance, lottery, kismat and things like that.


“Well deserved” is reserved for results produced because of herculean effort, daring risks, bravery, patience, persistence, a leap of faith, grit, optimism, compassion, innovation, alertness, tenacity, fairness, superb homework, and things like that.


“Well deserved” is from the heart and always genuine.


“Congratulations” may be fake.


“Well deserved” has been earned. Congratulations may be by default. Imagine someone winning a hard-fought game vs someone getting a walkover. What would you say when?


What is amazing is that we can choose what kind of greeting we want.


Well deserved or congratulations?


What makes sense to you my dearest darling friend?


Do let me know your thoughts….


With love, prayers and exceptional wishes,


Change your thoughts. Change your life

    I do agree that “Well deserved” has immense effects.😊

    Just sharing a poem which I recently read and felt really good…..

    Well Deserved Attention

    External behaviour may deceive, but internal calm may receive,
    the well-deserved attention,so far as the human relation is concerned,
    sometimes, we are carried away and stay with the temporary impression,

    as it may not go on for a long period, some void may soon surface,

    human nature is such, that catches with illusory images,

    falls with immediate spell and doesn’t augur well alter on,

    somewhere your calculation goes wrong, not everything is purchased for a song,

    the wrong impression peters out, the right impression soon comes out,

    one thing is for sure, there remains a mismatch with both the behaviours,
    one takes you deep down, other makes you well-known,

    if we have a shaky mind, we easily fall for such a kind of deception,
    but if we too have internal intelligence, no amount of false brilliance works.

    Congratulation Versus Well Deserved

    My thought / opinion

    · Both are equal, appreciating one’s achievement.

    · Differentiating both the words may be an influenced state of mind.

    · Both the expressions can be from the heart and always genuine.

    · The expression ‘congratulation’ is very commonly / frequently used and that is why it may sound impassive.

    · Congratulation is a word expressing one’s praise for an achievement and similarly, ‘well Deserved’ are also the words expressing admiration for an achievement.

    With Love

    Very well said. Can we also add well deserved, this should have to come you long back .. in case of promotion

    Yes Naren, rightly pointed out! A big applause for your Well Deserved messages! 👏🤗😍🙏🌏

    Of course, I would love to get a ‘well deserved’ over ‘Congratulations’. Being a recipient of a reward for which I have worked hard matters a lot as compared to receiving a wish/reward for something which I could have got easily by default.
