1.Have an open, loving attitude. If you want to be loved, love everyone. Be nice, gentle and friendly toward everyone. No one can find fault with the kindest person. 'Espoir Smart English through Love & Romance' is a fantastic guide to develop an attitude towards compassion & inter-personal skills. Speak in a gracious way. Be respectful to all.
2.Do the basics. Personal hygiene. Dress appropriately. If you respect yourself and take pride, people will notice. Having confidence is the easiest way to draw people to you, yet it is one of the hardest things to have.
3.Speak up! Live by your morales and ideals. Do what you say. Always be learning.
4.Smile, and be approachable. Be full of compassion.
5.Surround yourself with what makes you happy. Consider your body a sponge absorbing everything around you. You can only have so much happiness before you will start to give it off to those around you. Same with anger, sadness, jealousy. It is a way to keep our emotions balanced.
6.Have time. The greatest thing you can give is your time and energy.
7.Notice your thoughts as they happen. Half of what we say is through our bodies, which begins by what we are thinking.
8.Always be yourself. You want people to like you for who you are- not for who they THINK you are.
9.Have fun and relax. When you are around others, don't be uptight or nervous. Make sure other people around you see that you are relaxed and happy- not stressed out and upset. If people think you are carefree they will want to be around you more than if they think you are nervous about everything.
10.Be confident. When someone has low self-esteem people usually don't want to be around them. If people realize that you are confident, while at the same time being selfless they will want to be around you.
