We’ve talked about the importance of having a mentor and of being other-centered when interacting with others. Let’s now put the focus back on you.
The world is full of potential friends for you. You just have to meet them and make them feel that they like you.is a two-way street and you have to believe that you are a likeable person that people will want to get to know.
It doesn’t matter if you’re not fashionable or smart…you can win friends and influence people. First it starts with liking yourself. That can be easier said than done, of course. But find one thing you like about yourself. Then smile about it.
Smiling at people makes them feel important and everyone likes to feel important. People who smile more are more likely to have friends because they are more likely to look friendly and like they are fun to know. It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Next, stay true to yourself. Once you’ve decided what it is that you like about yourself, keep it that way. Yes, you should be flexible and adapt to accommodate people. But don’t sell your soul to the devil in the process. Don’t do things that you don’t feel are right for you. If you do, you won’t attract the kinds of friends you want: ones you can be yourself with and with whom you can relax and have fun.
If you can be confident in your looks, your ideas and your opinions you will soon have people interested in getting to know you better.
