Have you ever met someone who was just magnetic? Someone who attracted people all the time seemingly without effort? Well, there is an art and science to this. I am learning that this trait, being likeable/magnetic can take you very far not only in your personal life but also in business. Being positive is not just something you feel and live… it resonates through vibes that everyone around you will fee, creating a world of positivity and love for your dreams to grow:) Below are 4 Habits of likable people I encourage you to develop!
1. Don’t Worry About Establishing Importance When You Meet Someone. I think when we meet someone we really are trying to put our best foot forward and look like were extremely happy and confident, but its really best to just be yourself. You don’t want to give off the idea that your ego is in the way. Be yourself and show that your’e happy to meet the person with a warm, happy personality!
2. The Power of Touch. Non-sexual touch goes a long way; a pat on the back, a touch on the shoulder, these things are friendly and shows your’e an inviting person. I have actually tried this in a business meeting, and it really helps to break the ice. As long as you feel friendly inside, and are genuine, it will break down barriers. Try it.
3. Show Your Vulnerability. If you guys have been speaking for a few minutes, and especially if you have done the above 2 steps, the conversation may go deeper. If the person has told you something rather personal or perhaps it was a secret, make sure you mirror them and go deeper into the conversation too. You want to show them you want that connection with them. You don’t have the tell them top-secret stuff, just match them in vulnerability, because no one wants to feel like there just “out there alone” in a conversation, you know?
4. Make a Good Last Impression. People always say make a good first impression, yes this is true. But you also have to finish strong before you walk away from them. What if you had a great conversation and want to continue it? What if you wanted their business card to maybe connect with them later. Try not to be pushy about it, just be naturally yourself and let them know you’re really glad you met them, communicate that you would like to connect on social networks, or maybe for coffee sometime 🙂
