It is all how YOU decide how you want others to see you. For a better understanding, simple steps that could be followed over a period of time are illustrated below for a better understanding and easy implication to develop your personality within the shortest period of time.
Let us go on a day to day basis.
DAY 1 : Discover yourself
We all have wondered at one point or the other, what are we , or who exactly we are. Well if you are able to find an answer to this, half the hurdle is crossed. You should analyze for yourself, what is that you are passionate about. When you start doing things that you love, you would start to feel a positive vibe around. People noticing you, recognizing you, appreciating you for your work and many more. Rather than living or doing things according to others choice, you would be respected for what you are, no matter how weird it may be. Afterall you are skilled in that, so you could deliver the best ! Analyze what makes you happy , both personally and professionally, you would start to feel the difference when you start doing thing you love the most.
Day 2 : Observe others
There is no other better way of understanding , than observing. Every person has good and bad in them. When you are attracted or attached to a person, find out what qualities made you get close to him, what are his positive qualities, how is he liked or admired by others. These things would enable you to find the good qualities in a person that you meet and you could also implement those good qualities in you. The more good qualities in you, the better personality you acquire.
Day 3 : Be Bold and ready to explore
To get the best in you, always question yourself as to where you are today. If you feel that you are not able to get a justifiable answer, then analyze where you have gone wrong or what prevented you to get what you actually wanted. We all develop a comfort zone, whether at home or at work and then stick to it. Try breaking that zone. Step out, explore the adventures life has in store for you. It is fun and exciting to do what you really crave for, rather than being engulfed by shield that has restricted you to be who you are. Meet people, do adventurous works and be firm in what you do. Take your time, but do it, that is what counts.
Day 4: Love yourself
Have you congratulated yourself on something good? If you have not done it till now, start it right away. There is no other better feeling that complimenting yourself when really something good has been done and you know it very well. Compliments always have a positive effect and when you do it on your own, you know that you have really DONE IT ! A pat on your back, make you feel good and happy and helps in approaching other people. Don`t forget, even you are admirable and interesting….
Day 5: Accept mistakes
We all are humans, and humans do commit mistakes. Accept the fact that no person is perfect, that includes even you. Accepting one’s mistake is indeed a great step to improve ones personality. Trying to be a perfectionist would only attract negative impact not only on you, but also on others.
Day 6 : Live YOUR Life
Every minute counts in life , likewise every deed also counts. When you spend time on something that is of quality both for you and others, you could tell others about your success stories and this would gradually develop your confidence. Stop worrying about failure. Only with failures do you really understand how you could get better. Don’t distract yourself with the television or games that doe no good to you, but instead just makes you feel lethargy and drains you. When you start stepping up and live life in a conscious manner, you start attracting adventures on a continuous basis.
Day 7: Choose Optimistic people
We are what not with our ways of thoughts and deeds, but get influenced by other people whom we meet in life. Always try to be with people who see the positive in life and are more readily to be with you and help to build you up. Never be with people who are always doubtful and pessimistic in life, they will only burden you with doubts about yourself and you reach no where.
Day 8: Expand your Horizon
If you want others to see you as interesting, you yourself have to be one. Acquiring knowledge is one best methodology. Knowledge is power and very interesting too. Cultivate the habit of acquiring more information. It could be on anything that interests you. Read books, articles, interacting with people are all ways of acquiring information’s and improving knowledge which eventually makes you yourself an interesting person to be with.
Day 9: Be yourself
Never pretend to be someone whom you aren’t. People hate being cheated and you should realize that they can easily understand whether you are real or under a mask. People appreciate for the Actual You and not the Actor You. There is a lot of difference between the both. No matter what, when you be who you are, you would be accepted. Therefore , develop a good personality, so that you need not flaunt.
Day 10: Learn something new
Do not stagnate yourself. You mind is like are large sponge that keeps in absorbing more and more, the more you feed it. Explore things in life. Never underestimate yourself that you cannot expand more. Learn something new, develop a new hobby, open an unfamiliar book etc and you could see the unexpected talents and qualities in you being discovered. It rejuvenates you and opens a new beginning in you.
