You know those people who you just want to be around? Who draw you in and are just so darn likeable? Sometimes they are popular and charismatic, but not all of them are. Some are really grounded and understated. So the good news is, you don’t have to be the life of the party, or be the biggest extrovert or have an outgoing personality to have a lot of likeability.
In this video I talk about 3 simple habits that naturally draw people close to us and make us magnetic. And the good news is they are simple and anyone can do them – regardless of whether you are an introvert or extrovert, or loud or quiet, and they will not only make other people like you more, they will also make you like YOURSELF more and help you feel more confident – I’d say that might even be more worth the effort!
1. If you think something kind or flattering about someone, for goodness sakes, say it! Give compliments openly and freely – and it goes without saying to also be sure they are genuine.
2. Hold your dang tongue. If you feel compelled to say something nasty or critical about yourself in front of anyone else, DON’T (and it also helps if you can stop being an ass to yourself in your head as well).
3. Be interested in others. The people we find most interesting are the ones who are interested in us.
