Do you want to be the center of attraction during conversations in that ‘all eyes are on you’ when you speak? Well, that is possible through simple steps.
Before learning about the steps, ask yourself about the most engaging person you know. Surely that person is interesting and charming. That person also knows how to make someone feel important and special. In order to be as likeable as that person there are a few traits that you should polish.
In business curiosity is an extremely important trait. I’d advise you to try bringing back the curiosity you had as a child. When you are curious you automatically want to learn. Curiosity will also help you strengthen ties and build new ones.
Sometimes it is hard to be optimistic but that is a winning trait. Whining people are turn offs for everyone. Optimists are generally more likeable and also more successful! If you are not a naturally optimistic person you might want to work on it. Pay close attention to your thoughts, comments, and frame of mind.
Pretentious people think they are masquerading well but it is quite the opposite. You can easily pick out such people and walk away from them – that is what I do. When you are authentic and are genuinely interested in what the other person has to say, the other person is also more interested in sharing with you and talking to you.
Open-mindedness will make you more positive. It will make you look for opportunities that close-minded people simply skip over. That is why this is a very important trait.
Kindness is almost a lost virtue today and that is extremely sad. Just complimenting someone who has worked hard is an excellent way of showing kindness. Do one kind thing each day, at least.
Polish these traits and you will automatically become extremely likeable and attractive especially during conversations.
In order to be likeable you have to make a few traits shine. These include kindness, open-mindedness, authenticity, curiosity, and optimism.
