Your looks may attract people, however, your personality is what keeps them.
Have you ever tried to address a congregation and you were instantly shut off with no explainable reason? Have your ideas or opinions ever been trashed with no one giving it a second thought? Have you missed numerous financial deals as a result of poor self-coordination? — It’s high time you redefine your personality!
People’s first impression of you sticks with them for a really long time. Think for a second, what’s the possible first impression people get the moment they set eye on you? Do you think it’s a good one or a trashy one?
Other than the words you speak or the things you do, your personality must be overwhelming enough to warrant respect and attention from an audience or a business partner.
What’s my personality made up of? Can my personality really be improved?
Your personality is simply the sum of the little conscious and unconscious attributes you exhibit and pay little or no attention to. And yes, your personality can be improved to a level where no one can afford to ignore you.
Hence, below are five key steps to building an irresistible personality that’ll win an audience over, seal contract deals for you and enchant the public even without you uttering a word.
1. Redefine your physical composure
Sure, there’s freedom to the choice of fashion. However, certain fashion styles have to be cross-checked the moment it starts interfering with your productivity and career.
Your dressing and appearance is what people first set eye on. What they set eye on leads to what they think of you and, what they think of you creates their first impression of you. It’s like a cycle.
Your dressing exceeds covering your inner body and goes a long way to creating perceptions of you by masses whom you’ve never had a one-on-one encounter with. Therefore, you’re likely to be shut off an engagement once the masses deem you unfit via your physical composure.
Be a man/woman of class and never fail to showcase that in the attires you emerge with as it’ll readily convey a little bit about you thereby attracting attention and prestige.
No one detests a smart, neat and well-dressed fellow. However, same can not be said for the opposite fellow.
2. Be cool, calm and collected
Have you been the chatterbox? It’s time to stay mute and listen up!
Yeah right, people often assume exhibiting a fun personality demands one to be a talkative. However with time, “the talkatives” are considered as feckless and reckless; their words, opinions, and ideas are rarely taken seriously.
It’s better to say a single word worth a thousand meanings, than to say a thousand meaningless words.
Talkatives are easily shut off by the masses because their words flow nonstop with little or no authority.
Learn to quietly observe and mentally flow with any congregation you address. Often times, people are more attracted to the reserved individuals and feel they have lots to offer.
Irrespective of pressure and inconveniences, avoid blowing up and acting rashly. Strive to retain your sanity, peace and calmness at all times.
3. Discover yourself and be genuine
There’s absolutely no fault with looking up to people or learning to adopt few good attributes from role models and mentors. However, never lose your uniqueness while striving to fit in because you’ll become indifferent from the crowd.
Because of indifference, one dies before one actually dies. – Elie Wiesel
Genuine always outplace counterfeits. While attending congregations or business proposals, never be afraid to be different. The moment you become afraid to be yourself and face the congregation, you’re forced to imitate others.
However, if you can’t play the brave lion in your own skin, there’s no guarantee you can in another’s.
Strive to discover and build yourself to your fullest potential. Discover your special abilities and use them as trump cards. Imitating and acting cowardly will only attract massive thumbs down from an audience.
4. Exact confidence in all your doings
