How To Be Charming?
Not many people are born with charm. Only a few have that natural ability to be very likeable. The truth is, when you are charming it works in your favour. It opens doors. It promotes you. It gives you opportunities that many would dream for. So why not work on your charm. Listed below are a few things that you can do to make yourself more charming.
Smiling seems very easy to do but many people don’t smile enough. Smiling shows another person that you are happy to see them. It shows that you are a warm person. Everyone wants to be around a person who smiles and is happy. I remember as a student at University, I had a part-time job in the supermarket as a cashier. On busy days when there were long queues at my till customers would wait even though other cashiers were open and ready to serve them. I found it strange and would ask customers to join other queues but they would say I was the only one smiling and they were happy to wait because I made their shopping experience better. From that day onwards, I made an effort to smile even more.
Be Genuinely Interested In Others
Have you noticed that people love talking about themselves? You only have to look at social media to see how people want to share and talk about who they are. So why not make an effort to be interested in others? Ask people about themselves. Ask where they live. Ask what they do? Ask about their hobbies. When you show interest in others, it makes you more charming.
People love it when you remember their name. It makes them feel important. But it can be challenging remembering names, especially when you come into contact with lots of people. The best thing to do when you meet someone for the first time is repeat their name back to them. If you have an opportunity, also write it down. Another way to remember a person’s name is to identify them with something or someone else that has the same name. If you do any of the above, you will find yourself remembering names better.
Be A Good Listener
Listening shows that you care. It shows that you are interested in what others have to say about themselves. When speaking with others, make sure you give them eye contact. Don’t stare at them but make sure you look interested. Be an active listener, that means when speaking nod in agreement or ask questions if you don’t understand.
Have A Sense Of Humour
People love happy people. They also love people that don’t take themselves and life too seriously. They also love people who are incredibly optimistic and positive. Is that you? You can be charming by thinking more on the bright side of life. Don’t worry. Be happy.
