“You need to improve your Personality to achieve unparalleled success!”
How often do we hear this from our mentors, our teachers, on the covers of self-help books or through the tag-lines of learning centres? It has gained widespread importance in this VUCA – Volatile-Uncertain-Complex-Ambiguous world.
Personality is derived from the Latin word ‘Persona’. Commonly, Personality is defined as personal qualities and characteristics of an individual. The way we think, we interact and respond to emotions, our behaviors, our values; our way of living life makes us exclusive and helps us stand apart from the crowd.
So, how does one develop his personality? Is it something about how one looks, or how one speaks only? Or is it how easily one can connect with people? With over a decade of experience in behavioral science, here are few magical tips…
Be Confident :
‘ Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it – Bruce Lee.’ Be confident about who you are and what value you bring to life.
Improve Your Communication Skills :
It’s not the language but the way we speak defines who we are and sets the tone of our relationships! An ability to bring complex and chaotic communication information into more accurate, empathetic and as intended responses must be garnered. Transmission + Understanding = Effective Communication
Dress Up Well :
Clothes don’t make up a Man but surely makes his first impression! It is often noticed that people have a bias towards finer dressed people. Confident and situational dressing sense speaks volumes of your character and personality. Surely, investing your time and money in appropriate dressing and accessorising go a long way towards gaining confidence and a winning image!
Watch your Body Language :
Just as your appearance, people form opinions from the way you carry yourself and your body language. It plays a huge role in giving people the initial impression about you. Our face, eyes, hands and posture speak a lot than our words. It defines the kind of a person we are, what attitude we have, and the level of self confidence we possess. Be conscious of your body language! Simple techniques like smiling, constant eye contact, open hand gestures, and a positive posture will help you give a positive impression to others.
Be Positive :
Remember the King’s story in early English textbooks that stated ‘Everything happens for the best!” My mantra of life is everything happens for a reason! Staying positive will help you find that reason and give you strength to overcome the toughest of challenges. Nobody wants to be around a person who is negative and complaining all the time. Reprogram your subconscious to see the positives!
Listen well :
“Most people do not listen with the intent to listen, they listen with the intent to reply - by Stephen Covey”. Speak in such a way that others love to listen you, Listen in such a way that others love to speak to you. Being a good listener helps to connect with others and develop stronger, deeper relationships. Activate your E2H2 formula – All Ears, Eyes, Heart and Head to Me!
Learn, Learn and Learn :
The capacity to learn is a gift; the ability to learn is skill; the willingness to learn is a choice. Learning from your people is truly an indefinite treasure. Good learning skills in an individual makes one more desirable and wiser. Learn from the mistakes of others. Learn from the environment. Learn by doing. You can learn new things at any time and age. If you learn to be a beginner, the whole world opens up to You!
Develop the Leader in You :
Some people have this rare ability to go beyond their limitations and their very limitations become their greatest motivation. These people have the ability to inspire those around them and find others who inspire them. These people LEAD. If you look smartly, you will find these leaders playing different roles in different walks of life - Homemakers, Professionals, Teachers, Students, Businessmen, Child and maybe – You!
