Have you come across a person who is so naturally friendly that when you put him inside a room of strangers, he’ll be friends with almost everyone in no time?
I call such person a people-person or socially empowered person, someone unbelievably nice and charismatic that he can charm anyone into doing anything.
This type of person achieves so much greatness.
Because of people who catapult him to success, he earns the trust and all-out support from others, whom he had helped before.
He never runs out of help, he can do anything with the plethora of people behind him, and he knows how to maximizes his social potential.
See, if you know your social skills and you make use of them, you will reach to self-empowerment success, at the same time become a better and more lovable person.
This is making a general overhaul in your life and turning yourself into a happier, wealthier and more successful person.
“Every day, in every way, I am getting better and better” – Emile Coué
1. Be Genuine
Hypocrisy will just bring you all the way down.
Be genuinely nice and interested to people.
If others perceive that you are Mr. Hypocrite with selfish intentions, you might as well say goodbye to self-empowerment, and lost your good friends.
2. Be the Greatest Listener that You Can Be
To earn the love and trust of others, listen to their problems and sympathize with them.
Do not just hear them out, listen to them with your heart.
When the person talks to you, make eye contact with him, listen as if every word matters, and it does.
The brownie point was let them find out that there is confidence in you.
3. Laugh Out Loud
I do not mean that you force yourself to laugh for every joke cracked by someone, albeit you do not find it funny at all.
What I mean is finding humor in things and not being too darn serious.
A person oozing with an awesome sense of humor attracts crowds and eventually attracts success.
4. Don’t Forget Yourself
In the process of fluttering around like a social butterfly, you might forget yourself and allowing everyone to push you over.
No, don’t do it, remember – love and value yourself before anyone else.
If you believe yourself respectable and worthy of affection, people will flock to you and not trample on you.
5. Do Random Acts of Kindness
You don’t have to do a John Rockefeller and blow your savings to charity.
Little acts of kindness matter the most, and this can be as simple as giving someone a surprise you-take-care card or helping an elderly cross the street.
Remember the time when you were a kindergarten student?
Kindness was taught to you and greatly practiced when you were a kid. Now is the time to revive the good deeds and this time, let them stay for good.
6. Contact Your Old Friends
It is sad to see how some friendships are destined to goodbye.
But, with today’s advanced technology, you can do many things to get your friendship back on track.
Relive the good old days by flipping your yearbook and look for the great people whom you want to communicate with again.
Adding these old friends to your roster of support peers, look up them on Facebook and other social media channels.
This will make you feel good all over 🙂
7. Develop Your Personality
Are you grouchy, grumpy and generally morose?
Whoa, you can’t go through life with those.
Get rid of the bad traits and habits that perpetually hamper your growth. And really, who wants a grouchy friend anyway?
8. Be Confident
Be able to stride to the other corner of the room and introduce yourself to people with that winning smile of yours.
Just remember: be confident, not arrogant.
9. Practice Control
When angry, don’t snap at anyone.
Never throw a tantrum.
Stay calm and collected.
Be adult enough to take control of the situation and transform your anger into something more productive and passive.
Otherwise, when people start to think the proportions your anger goes to volcanic so easy, they will find it hard to come to you.
10. Keep Nurturing Your Relationships
Your relationship with your family, friends, and significant others are too precious that you must not neglect it no matter whatever happens.
Go out and have fun with them and do things/activities together.
Happiness will never fly from your side as long as the people who matter the most are close to you.
Once you find yourself becoming a better and more lovable person, people know they can turn to you anytime and vice versa.
In conclusion, go out of your way for someone, say the nice thing that you are thinking, say yes instead of no. And gain a reputation for being interesting, caring, grateful and surprising in your own special way.
