Invite people to be a part of your day without necessarily having to say a word. Reality check: a good impression is initiated by that unknown factor that one exudes naturally and, of course, effortlessly. It can only be followed by an inviting and good-natured conversation characterized by sincere regard and attention; Mix it up with sense of humor, a listening ear, appropriate choice of words, or just about any action that shows you were brought up to be someone with good breeding and character, then that would make you most welcome to be part of the community.
For all the right reasons, allow your daily life to be governed by the simple rules that would allow you to sleep at night knowing that certain people are thankful for your existence.
Keep both feet on the ground and remember that being humble invites people to join your table. That enormous yet unnecessary ego can certainly cause rolling eyes, disappointed smirk, annoyed deep breaths, and the likes. Anything remarkable about you is better praised when you didn’t take the extra effort to tell the world what they can find out for themselves.
Give that smile whether they deserve it or not, there is nothing to lose. Anything can start with a simple smile and it is absolutely the simplest priceless thing anyone can give at any moment. Give it to a random stranger and you’ll never know how it can incidentally save a day; give it to your colleague at work and it can only mean you’re glad to be working with her; smile at your professor as its synonymous to saying ‘thank you for the additional knowledge’; a certain person may be the worst person you’ve ever known but if you give her that smile, it can either allow you to tell yourself ‘you exercise my patience and I’ll take that as a good thing’ or allow her to feel that she is still respected as she after all deserves it as a human and not as the person you deem she is. It’s impossible to only have good words for someone excruciatingly annoying but why take the extra effort giving someone a bad mouth, it will only make her appear that she matters and worth your time.
Analyze how insecure people speak, that is of course the last impression you want people to have about you. That unfathomable sense of security mixed with the right amount of self-confidence can sure amaze a crowd gracefully. You just have to learn how to stick to your ideals without judging others when they are in contrast to what you believe in. remember that what works for you doesn’t necessarily mean the same for other people. Respect what others have in hand and learn how to create harmony amid differences.
Every minute entails an opportunity to broaden your social circle… which leads to finding the best people that may eventually end up being a friend who would make the rest of your life worthwhile. Time is so much of a treasure so why not take it further and make the world feel that your company is worth their very precious time. We’re all social players in so many aspects like at work, at the place where you live, at school… anywhere we find ourselves. Hence, the opportunity will never be a scarcity.
Don’t waste the time given because any person you encounter is special. He can be a good influence that will make you a better person, or a totally wrecked person that you sure don’t want to be associated with: any person can simply help you define who you want to be and how you want to be.
