10 Easy Ways To Improve Your Personality




What is Personality?
The "personality" is the typical pattern of thinking, feeling, and behaviors that make a person unique.
When we say that someone has a "good personality" we mean that they are likeable, interesting and pleasant to be with. 
Everyone wants to be attractive to others.  To that end, having a good personality is vital - probably even more so than good looks. In fact, approximately 85 percent of your success and happiness will be a result of how well you interact with others. Ultimately, it is your personality that determines whether people are attracted to, or shy away from you.
While we can only enhance our looks to a certain extent, we have the ability to improve the personality as much as we want. We can develop or integrate any trait we deem fitting and agreeable.

Here are some ways we can Improve Personality.
1.    Be a better listener.
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was considered one of the most charming women in the world because she cultivated the skill of being an exceptional listener. She was known for the way she would look a person in the eyes,  hang on their every word, and make them feel important. There is nothing more appealing than having someone listen to you intently making you feel like you're the only person in the world.

2.    Read more and expand your interests.
The more you read and cultivate new interests, the more interesting you are to others. When you meet new people it gives you the opportunity to share what you know and to exchange your views with them.

3.    Be a good conversationalist.
This relates to how much you read and know. Once you have much to contribute, learn how to talk about it with others. No one can read about or know everything, so it's refreshing to learn from others those things we don't have the time to about read ourselves. If you happen to be shy, join a group like Toastmasters that encourages you to talk about what you know.

4.    Have an Opinion.
There is nothing more tiresome than trying to talk to someone who has no opinion on anything. A conversation has nowhere to go if you have nothing to expound on. If, however, you have an uncommon point of view or differing opinion, you are more interesting and stimulating to be with socially (unless you're a know-it-all, of course).  A unique outlook expands everyone's perspective.

5.    Meet New People.
Make the effort to meet new people especially those unlike you. It not only exposes you to different cultures and alternative ways of doing things, it broadens your horizons.

6.    Be yourself.
The next most tiresome thing after having no opinions is trying to be something you're not. Molding yourself in order to fit in, or be accepted, usually backfires. Since each of us is unique, expressing that uniqueness is what makes us interesting. Attempting to be a carbon copy of someone else not only falls flat, but reveals a lack of authenticity. 

7.    Have a positive outlook and attitude.
Who wants to be around people who are negative, complain a lot, or have nothing good to say? In fact, most of us run when we see them coming. Instead, be the kind of upbeat person who lights up a room with your energy when you enter it. Do it by looking for the best in people and things. Smile warmly, spread good cheer, and enliven others with your presence.

8.    Be fun and see the humorous side of life.
Everyone enjoys the company of someone who makes them laugh, or smile, so look for the humorous, quirky side in a situation - there always is one. Comic relief is a much welcome and needed diversion at times. When you can add fun and lightheartedness to an otherwise dull or gloomy setting, others will naturally be attracted to you, not to mention grateful.

9.    Be supportive of others.
Being supportive is probably the most endearing quality you can integrate into your personality. Just as you yourself welcome it, be the support for others when they need it. We all love a cheerleader in our corner; someone who is encouraging, believes in us and helps pick us up when we're down.


10.  Have Integrity and treat people with respect.
    Being honest and true to your word will bring you the admiration, respect and gratitude of others. Nothing improves a person's personality more than integrity and respect - respect for others, as well as respect for yourself.

EASY WAY TO BUILD SELF CONFIDENCE


1. Dress Sharp

Although clothes don’t make the man, they certainly affect the way he feels about himself. No one is more conscious of your physical appearance than you are. When you don’t look good, it changes the way you carry yourself and interact with other people. Use this to your advantage by taking care of your personal appearance. In most cases, significant improvements can be made by bathing and shaving frequently, wearing clean clothes, and being cognizant of the latest styles.
This doesn’t mean you need to spend a lot on clothes. One great rule to follow is “spend twice as much, buy half as much”. Rather than buying a bunch of cheap clothes, buy half as many select, high quality items. In long run this decreases spending because expensive clothes wear out less easily and stay in style longer than cheap clothes. Buying less also helps reduce the clutter in your closet.

2. Walk Faster

One of the easiest ways to tell how a person feels about herself is to examine her walk. Is it slow? tired? painful? Or is it energetic and purposeful? People with confidence walk quickly. They have places to go, people to see, and important work to do. Even if you aren’t in a hurry, you can increase your self confidence by putting some pep in your step. Walking 25% faster will make to you look and feel more important.

3. Good Posture

Similarly, the way a person carries herself tells a story. People with slumped shoulders and lethargic movements display a lack of self confidence. They aren’t enthusiastic about what they’re doing and they don’t consider themselves important. By practicing good posture, you’ll automatically feel more confident. Stand up straight, keep your head up, and make eye contact. You’ll make a positive impression on others and instantly feel more alert and empowered.

4. Personal Commercial

One of the best ways to build confidence is listening to a motivational speech. Unfortunately, opportunities to listen to a great speaker are few and far between. You can fill this need by creating a personal commercial. Write a 30-60 second speech that highlights your strengths and goals. Then recite it in front of the mirror aloud (or inside your head if you prefer) whenever you need a confidence boost.

5. Gratitude

When you focus too much on what you want, the mind creates reasons why you can’t have it. This leads you to dwell on your weaknesses. The best way to avoid this is consciously focusing on gratitude. Set aside time each day to mentally list everything you have to be grateful for. Recall your past successes, unique skills, loving relationships, and positive momentum. You’ll be amazed how much you have going for you and motivated to take that next step towards success.

6. Compliment other people

When we think negatively about ourselves, we often project that feeling on to others in the form of insults and gossip. To break this cycle of negativity, get in the habit of praising other people. Refuse to engage in backstabbing gossip and make an effort to compliment those around you. In the process, you’ll become well liked and build self confidence. By looking for the best in others, you indirectly bring out the best in yourself.

7. Sit in the front row

In schools, offices, and public assemblies around the world, people constantly strive to sit at the back of the room. Most people prefer the back because they’re afraid of being noticed. This reflects a lack of self confidence. By deciding to sit in the front row, you can get over this irrational fear and build your self confidence. You’ll also be more visible to the important people talking from the front of the room.

8. Speak up

During group discussions many people never speak up because they’re afraid that people will judge them for saying something stupid. This fear isn’t really justified. Generally, people are much more accepting than we imagine. In fact most people are dealing with the exact same fears. By making an effort to speak up at least once in every group discussion, you’ll become a better public speaker, more confident in your own thoughts, and recognized as a leader by your peers.

9. Work out

Along the same lines as personal appearance, physical fitness has a huge effect on self confidence. If you’re out of shape, you’ll feel insecure, unattractive, and less energetic. By working out, you improve your physcial appearance, energize yourself, and accomplish something positive. Having the discipline to work out not only makes you feel better, it creates positive momentum that you can build on the rest of the day.

10. Focus on contribution

Too often we get caught up in our own desires. We focus too much on ourselves and not enough on the needs of other people. If you stop thinking about yourself and concentrate on the contribution you’re making to the rest of the world, you won’t worry as much about you own flaws. This will increase self confidence and allow you to contribute with maximum efficiency. The more you contribute to the world the more you’ll be rewarded with personal success and recognition.

How To Become More Attractive



Attraction is a funny thing. If you’re like many, you may believe physical appearance is the driving force behind attractiveness. If you're in that group and hold that belief, you'd be wrong.

While physical appearance plays a large role in how you are perceived, your thoughts and how you choose to carry yourself remain the dominant power at the wheel. The truth is, you don’t need the hottest style of clothing to be attractive. You don’t need to be on the latest diet to become irresistible. With the right mindset you can unleash your natural beauty within. How?


  • Be Real
    A great deal of people try to hide their true self by subscribing to false identities. When you do this, not only do you obstruct your inbred magnificence, you release a sense of falseness. Fakery is never inviting.

    There’s no reason to hide your faults or pretend they don’t exist. Embrace your true qualities; no one expects you to be perfect.

    Those who are true to themselves are inherently going to be more attractive. Never be embarrassed of falling short. Being real means accepting who you are and loving yourself as a result. Only when you love yourself can you genuinely begin to love others. Nothing is more sexy then love.

  • Talk With Purpose
    There's something attractive about those who have a purpose behind their words. Avoid talking just for the sake of filler. When you talk, speak with authority. Allow your soul to speak rather than your pleasure driven ego.

    Abraham Lincoln reportedly once said, "Better to keep your mouth closed and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt."

  • Listen
    In an increasingly opinionated world, the skill of genuinely listening has decreased substantially, therefore learning to do so is imperative. When you talk, really talk, and when you listen, really listen. Suspend judgment and open your heart to receive. Talking to a wall is never attractive.

    There's something magnetic about one who cares enough to truly listen.

  • Laugh
    When you laugh, you emit the inner beauty of your being to all those around. While it's certainly possible to over do it, laughing is virtually always looked at in a positive light. A sense of humor is alluring. No one likes a grouch.

  • Smile
    Combined with laughing, smiling is one of the easiest ways to radiate attractiveness. When you smile, you open yourself up to connect with all those around. Did you know the most successful individuals are the one's that smile most?

  • Don’t Complain
    If you’re like the majority of society, a great deal of your thoughts and conversations involves complaining. Talk about a turn off. Do everything in your power not to complain. Those who complain attract more situations to complain about. Instead, embrace each and every moment as a gift from the universe. Don't expect to glow if you instead to choose to whine.

  • Feel Attractive
    How can you expect to be attractive if you don’t feel that you are? Each and everyone of us is overflowing with natural beauty. When you feel attractive, you release attractiveness. However, there's a fine line between confidence and cockiness. Always avoid the latter. When you sincerely believe you are an attractive individual, which by nature you are, those around you won't be able to help but think the same.

  • Be Open
    No one likes someone who is closed off and not accessible. Be open to create authentic relationships and watch the connections unfold. Far too often people feel as if they are too good for someone, but the reality is we are all part of a single cell: humanity. When you allow others to connect with you, you instantly become that much more appealing. Be open and willing and watch as your authentic relationships manifest. :)

  • Walk With Your Head Up
    How do you walk? Do you walk with your head down? A simple shift in the way you walk will do wonders in how you are perceived in the public eye. Confidence goes a long way. Look up and observe the beauty of the world, and in turn you will begin to radiate it.

How to Get the Love of Your Life


Be ready for love. Being in a relationship takes time, commitment, and vulnerability. Loving yourself first allows you to share love with others. Strong, loving relationships are built on trust, honesty, and communication. You must be willing to meet these expectations if you are looking for someone to call "the love of your life."

Recognize your standards. We've heard the phrase, "love has no limits." In reality, however, a few limits might not be a bad idea. Although it's unfair to judge a person entirely by his or her flaws (past or present), there are probably certain kinds of thoughts or behaviors that you know would ultimately hinder your compatibility with someone. More importantly, there are probably certain kinds of thoughts or behaviors that you WOULD find important in your significant other.

Be ready to differentiate between loving a person and loving the affection he or she shows you. Being in love feels good. This feeling can sometimes overpower true thoughts about our actual partner. Pay attention to whether you can distinguish between a person's intrinsic qualities and the ones you impose on him or her.

Be in the right place at the right time. There are probably places where you feel your personality flourishes -- during happy hour with friends, at the park, at a concert, maybe even at the library. Be there.

Strive for emotional intimacy before physical intimacy. If you are looking to call someone the "love of your life," an emotional bond is key. Rushing the physical side of a relationship does not necessarily prevent an emotional bond, but it can make the emotional landscape more difficult to navigate.

Trust yourself. Be comfortable taking your time. Be patient and discerning in your judgments. At the same time, be perceptive and open to new ideas about what you define as "love."

Positive Thinking - Your Key to Success



Did you know that positive thinking is one of the most important keys to achieving success?

With this key, it is easier to gain success, inner peace, improved relationships, better health, happiness and satisfaction. This key, also helps in the daily affairs of life, making everything flow more smoothly, and with less friction. A positive attitude makes life look brighter and promising.

Positive thinking is contagious. People around you pick your mental moods and are affected accordingly. Think about happiness, good health and success, and you will cause people to like you and desire to help you, because they enjoy the vibrations that a positive mind emits.
In order to make positive thinking yield results, you need to develop a positive attitude toward life, expect a successful outcome of whatever you do, but also take any necessary actions to ensure your success.

Effective positive thinking that brings results is much more than just repeating a few positive words, or telling yourself that everything is going to be all right. It has to be your predominant mental attitude. It is not enough to think positively for a few moments, and then letting fears and lack of belief enter your mind. Some effort and inner work are necessary.
Are you willing to make a real inner change?
Are you willing to change the way you think?
Are you willing to develop a mental power that can positively affect you, your environment and the people around you?

Tips for developing the power of positive thinking - your key to success:

  1. Use only positive words while thinking and while talking. Use words such as, 'I can', 'I am able', 'it is possible', 'it can be done', etc.
  2. Allow only feelings of happiness, strength and success into your awareness.
  3. Disregard and ignore negative thoughts. Refuse to think such thoughts, by substituting them with constructive, happy thoughts. Every time a negative thought finds its way into your mind, immediately replace it with a positive thought.
  4. In your conversation, use words that bring forth feelings and mental images of strength, happiness and success.
  5. Before starting with any plan or action, visualize clearly in your mind its successful outcome. If you visualize with concentration and faith, you will be amazed at the results.
  6. Read at least one page of inspiring book every day.
  7. Watch movies that make you feel happy.
  8. Minimize the time you listen to the news and read the newspapers.
  9. Associate yourself with people who think positively.
  10. Always sit and walk with your back straight. This will strengthen your confidence and inner strength.
  11. Walk, swim or engage in some other physical activity. This helps to develop a more positive attitude.
Think positive and expect only favorable results and situations, even if your current circumstances are not as you wish them to be. In time, your mental attitude will affect your external life and circumstances, and change them accordingly.

9 Daily Habits That Will Make You Happier



Happiness is the only true measure of personal success. Making other people happy is the highest expression of success, but it's almost impossible to make others happy if you're not happy yourself.
With that in mind, here are nine small changes that you can make to your daily routine that, if you're like most people, will immediately increase the amount of happiness in your life:

1. Start each day with expectation.

If there's any big truth about life, it's that it usually lives up to (or down to) your expectations. Therefore, when you rise from bed, make your first thought: "something wonderful is going to happen today." Guess what? You're probably right.

2. Take time to plan and prioritize.

The most common source of stress is the perception that you've got too much work to do.  Rather than obsess about it, pick one thing that, if you get it done today, will move you closer to your highest goal and purpose in life. Then do that first.

3. Give a gift to everyone you meet.

I'm not talking about a formal, wrapped-up present. Your gift can be your smile, a word of thanks or encouragement, a gesture of politeness, even a friendly nod. And never pass beggars without leaving them something. Peace of mind is worth the spare change.

4. Deflect partisan conversations.

Arguments about politics and religion never have a "right" answer but they definitely get people all riled up over things they can't control. When such topics surface, bow out by saying something like: "Thinking about that stuff makes my head hurt."

5. Assume people have good intentions.

Since you can't read minds, you don't really know the "why" behind the "what" that people do. Imputing evil motives to other people's weird behaviors adds extra misery to life, while assuming good intentions leaves you open to reconciliation.

6. Eat high quality food slowly.

Sometimes we can't avoid scarfing something quick to keep us up and running. Even so, at least once a day try to eat something really delicious, like a small chunk of fine cheese or an imported chocolate. Focus on it; taste it; savor it.

7. Let go of your results.

The big enemy of happiness is worry, which comes from focusing on events that are outside your control. Once you've taken action, there's usually nothing more you can do. Focus on the job at hand rather than some weird fantasy of what might happen.

8. Turn off "background" TV.

Many households leave their TVs on as "background noise" while they're doing other things. The entire point of broadcast TV is to make you dissatisfied with your life so that you'll buy more stuff. Why subliminally program yourself to be a mindless consumer?

9. End each day with gratitude.

Just before you go to bed, write down at least one wonderful thing that happened. It might be something as small as a making a child laugh or something as huge as a million dollar deal. Whatever it is, be grateful for that day because it will never come again.

  10. How to Stop Worrying and Start Living


    Fundamental facts you should know about worry

    1. If you want to avoid worry, do what Sir William Osler did: Live in "day-tight compartments." Don't stew about the futures. Just live each day u ntil bedtime.
    2. The next time Trouble--with a Capital T--backs you up in a corner, try the magic formula of Willis H. Carrier:
      1. Ask yourself, "What is the worst that can possibly happen if I can't solve my problem?
      2. Prepare yourself mentally to accept the worst--if necessary.
      3. Then calmly try to improve upon the worst--which you have already mentally agreed to accept.
    3. Remind yourself of the exorbitant price you can pay for worry in terms of your health. "Those who do not know how to fight worry die young."


    Basic techniques in analyzing worry

     

    1. Get the facts. Remember that Dean Hawkes of Columbia University said that "half the worry in the world is caused by people trying to make decisions before they have sufficient knowledge on which to base a decision."
    2. After carefully weighing all the facts, come to a decision.
    3. Once a decision is carefully reached, act! Get busy carrying out your decision--and dismiss all anxiety about the outcome.
    4. When you, or any of your associates, are tempted to worry about a problem, write out and answer the following questions:
      1. What is the problem?
      2. What is the cause of the problem?
      3. What are all possible solutions?
      4. What is the best solution?


    How to break the worry habit before it breaks you

     

    1. Crowd worry out of your mind by keeping busy. Plenty of action is one of the best therapies ever devised for curing "wibber gibbers."
    2. Don't fuss about trifles. Don't permit little things--the mere termites of life--to ruin your happines.
    3. Use the law of averages to outlaw your worries. Ask yourself: "What are the odds against this thing's happening at all?"
    4. Co-operate with the inevitable. If you know a circumstance is beyond your power to change or revise, say to yourself: "It is so; it cannot be otherwise."
    5. Put a "stop-less" order on your worries. Decide just how much anxiety a thing may be worth--and refuse to give it anymore.
    6. Let the past bury its dead. Don't saw sawdust.


    Seven ways to cultivate a mental attitude that will bring you peace and happiness

     

    1. Let's fill our minds with thoughts of peace, courage, health, and hope, for "our life is what our thoughts make it."
    2. Let's never try to get even with our enemies, because if we do we will hurt ourselves far more than we hurt them. Let's do as General Eisenhower does: let's never waste a minute thinking about people we don't like.
    3.  
      1. Instead of worrying about ingratitude, let's expect it. Let's remember that Jesus healed ten lepers in one day--and only one thanked Him. Why should we expect more gratitude than Jesus got?
      2. Let's remember that the only way to find happiness is not to expect gratitude--but to give for the joy of giving.
      3. Let's remember that gratitude is a "cultivated" trait; so if we want our children to be grateful, we must train them to be grateful.
    4. Count your blessings--not your troubles!
    5. Let's not imitate others. Let's find ourselves and be ourselves, for "envy is ignorance" and "imitation is suicide."
    6. When fate hands us a lemon, let's try to make a lemonade.
    7. Let's forget our own unhappiness--by trying to create a little happiness for others. "When you are good to others, you are best to yourself."


    The perfect way to conquer worry

     

    1. Prayer


    How to keep from worrying about criticism

     

    1. Unjust criticism is often a disguised compliment. It often means that you have aroused jealousy and envy. Remember that no one ever kicks a dead dog.
    2. Do the very best you can; and then put up your old umbrella and keep the rain of criticism from running down the back of your neck.
    3. Let's keep a record of the fool things we have done and criticize ourselves. Since we can't hope to be perfect, let's do what E.H. Little did: let's ask for unbiased, helpful, constructive criticism.


    Six ways to prevent fatigue and worry and keep your energy and spirits high

     

    1. Rest before you get tired.
    2. Learn to relax at your work.
    3. Learn to relax at home.
    4. Apply these four good workings habits:
      1. Clear your desk of all papers except those relating to the immediate problem at hand.
      2. Do things in the order of their importance.
      3. When you face a problem, solve it then and there if you have the facts to make a decision.
      4. Learn to organize, deputize, and supervise.
    5. To prevent worry and fatigue, put enthusiasm into your work.
    6. Remember, no one was ever killed by lack of sleep. It is worrying about insomnia that does the damage--not the insomnia.
