Updated on April 29, 2020

With simple changes in my behaviour and lifestyle, I managed to enhance my personality. Sharing my personal experiences.

Introduction

As it has been rightly said that "first impression is the last impression." Every human being has been formulated with some special qualities or characteristics which are not in the other person because of these aspects every person is different from others. Every human is enrolled with some specific qualities which makes him unique in himself. This becomes the identity of his personality. The personality of a person is reflected in his conduct, thoughts, actions and activities. Your personality is completely influenced by the environment and it can change accordingly.

A good personality makes the path of success in life much easy. The people get influenced by such a person very easily. Everyone wants incredible personality traits in them. Having a good personality is considered to be one of the appreciable thing in the society, people listen to them and take them seriously. The recent example is of our prime minister Mr Narendra Modi who is the most influential personality of the world. On the basis of his personality, he has achieved great success in his life and influenced many people also.

By acknowledging some activities in your life, you can also make your personality more effective

"Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in your self, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it". Bruce lee

1. Discover Yourself

Before you can define who you are, try to ask some simple questions to yourself, how can I describe myself the best? What brings joy to me? What have I accomplished till now? What is my dream? What is my fear?

First of all, we should try to know ourselves well, obviously, it will take some time to discover your self and if you are not able to identify your weaknesses, ask your friend's and the lists will be endless but it will certainly help you to accomplish your self.

We should always try to overcome the flaws in ourselves. We often pay attention to the negligences of others and ignore our mistakes. Try to identify them and insists on rectifying the mistakes. When you become successful in doing so your personality will change on its own.

2. Be A Good Listener

It is rightly said that" silence speaks louder than words". And it is the most important quality to improve your personality. Many of the people are in a habit of speaking a lot but never try to listen to others. We should always convey our opinions only after listening to the whole concept. This extraordinary habit will probably lend you into the process of learning new things every time.

3. Be Confident

Confidence is a word derived from a Latin word fidre which means "to trust", therefore, a self-confidence is having trust in one's self.

It is a belief that a person has the ability to face challenges in life and will succeed accordingly. But it cannot be misguided as a feeling of superiority to others. To enhance your personality self-confidence plays a very important role. We should trust ourselves. Confidence should be reflected in whatever we do or say, because of this people remembers you for a long time.

4. Be Attentive Of Your Posture

We mainly blame our posture on our genetics, or on job stress. But do you know that our posture is largely determined by our personality? Our posture, facial expressions and our body movements communicate the manner we feel inside.

During many interviews, the interviewers investigates a person according to the posture of the hands, face and eyes. They determine whether the candidate is confident in their own answers or not. How you talk, walk or sits also describes your personality, do not walk with your head bowed nor sit and walk. Always be in a relaxed posture and use eye contact when talking to others.

5. Be A Good Observer

If you want to bring change in yourself, then make a habit of learning from others. Try to observe the good habits of others and try to inculcate them into your life. It will help to overcome the various shortcomings inside you. There's a lot to learn through observing not only from humans but also from birds, animals and insects also. For instance, ants teach us to be patient and hard-working, from dog to be faithful and strategy from vulture.

6. Be Polite And Positive In Attitude

We should always be polite in our behaviour, whether talking to elders or young ones. It purely reflects our personality. As civilized and courteous you are, the same will be your image in front of the people. It creates a perpetual impression on others. Your kindness, politeness and courteous attitude will have a direct impact on not only your personal life but also on professional life as well.

Positive thinking is the most essential aspects of personality traits. Try to complete your tasks with a positive attitude. If a glass is half-filled with water than a negative thinking person will observe it to be half empty while a positive attitude will consider it to be half-filled with water. Be optimistic and conquer the world.

7. Meet New People

Always be ready to meet new people in life as they will provide new experiences and new opportunities also. We get to know more about their culture and lifestyle so that we can incorporate good things into our lives. Meeting new people will surely help in enhancing confidence and make your social network much stronger.

"When you smile

The whole world smiles with you"

8. Smile Cause It's Free

Smiles always make a day beautiful. A smiling face always reinforces the attraction on one's face and add overwhelming charm to the personality. If you are feeling depressed or upset, a little smile on the face will not only revive your mood but also adds a positive impact on your personality. Smiling makes you appear courteous and likeable by everyone. So, a simple smile can also be a shortcut to your success in life.

      I like the first approach, Swati. It is essential before all else come, because I believe that before we can enhance our personality, we should know ourselves better. We need to know our weaknesses so that we will know which part of our personality needs to be enhanced. After that, we will also become effective in inspiring other to look for their own frailties. It's a good article. I discover insights that are valuable. Godspeed!

      Hello, Swati !!

      Being in the corporate sector, I find the qualities mentioned very relevant and necessary to climb up the corporate ladder. I have seen many people lacking these qualities and it did them no good. I would ask people to develop these qualities for a successful career and also to be more presentable in front of others. Keep up writing more valuable content. Looking forward to reading more from you.

      As we all are about that personality is everything. The first impression is the last one. We have to improve our personality day by day. We have to be a good listener if we want to become a good speaker. You always judge by your personality in an interview. Of course, confidence is a key to success. Thanks for sharing this information @Swati. This will help many of us and will be more beneficial for the students.

      Hello Swati. It's a well-written article about personality development. Although I completely agree with all the manageable qualities you've mentioned, I particularly consider the second and sixth points needed to build a great personality.

      Many people underestimate the power of being a good listener, but if you have this quality, I think you will be able to connect with a lot of like-minded people as they will notice that you're listening to what they have to say. It will build a connection on a psychological level.

      Also, being polite and having a positive attitude will ultimately guide us to see the bright side of everything, including the difficult situation. Thank you for writing such a wonderful article Swati.

      The most important aspect of personality enhancement is "commitment". If you are a person who says something and do something else then none of the qualities such as, having a smiling face, confidence, etc. will work for you. This is my viewpoint regarding enhancing personality.

      Now if I look from the perspective of a reader, this hub has incredible value. Although many can disagree with some of the points mentioned above, but if we will think from a general perspective then all of the points clubbed together can help a person enhance his/her personality.

      Thanks for sharing this hub and there is some room for improvement in terms of content.
