You must have seen some people who have a very charismatic personality and they are very popular. Everyone likes to talk to or be friends with a person with a good personality. You might have a good height, a good physique, sharp features and fair complexion but if you are having a depressing and dull personality then people will go away from you and they will leave you no matter how good looking you might be.
You must have been familiar with the phrase “some people seem very bright until you hear them speak”. The Life you lead, how many friends you possess and how your professional and personal life is going totally depends upon what kind of a personality you have.
You can handle all obstacles in your life if you have a good personality whether you are facing problems in your career or your relationships.

You will take your life towards prosperity, love and success instead of ruining your life unnecessarily if you have a strong personality.
Human beings are the most powerful species on this earth and they can achieve anything if they want to. There is nothing like impossible for a human as he has an ocean of energy within him and it’s up to him whether he utilizes that energy constructively or destructively.
You all must have faced a phase in life when your career is going down, your health is getting affected, you are having problems in your relationships and you are doing nothing about it except feeling guilty for not fulfilling your responsibilities yet nothing is changed in fact the situation gets out of control and worse with time. You feel inactive, dull, and lifeless and you like to seek solace in things like social networking sites like Facebook and watching T.V or hanging out with your friends all the time. You sleep at 2pm or so at night and wake up at 10 am in the morning and you still don’t feel like getting out of your bed and do some productive work. Your work is pending and piled up and you are getting tantrums from your parents and teachers.
No one gives attention to you at your work and you feel left out. You don’t realize that such a routine is rotting your personality. You will enjoy watching TV if you watch only a few favorite serials and not watching the TV the entire day even when nothing interesting is coming on the T.V. You will not enjoy surfing net if there are no latest updates. The friends with whom you hang around with will leave you one day and they will score good marks because they balance their work with their recreation and you only focused on the fun. You cannot blame anybody if this leads you to depression and loneliness. Your life and your routine is in your hands only and only you can mend it.
If you want to get things right for you then the first step to have a good personality is to make your routine healthy. You should organize your timetable and you should regularly do your work. Even if you study for two hours daily you would be in a better position as compared to studying the entire day and then not studying for a week.
“Balance” is the word which can sort out your life. Only work and no play make jack a dull boy. You have to enjoy your life to the fullest and watch your favorite shows, surf internet, hang around with your friends and your family but you should do everything in a limit. You can go for a nice movie some day but it doesn’t mean that you watch every upcoming movie whether you like it or not. You should never compromise on your sleep no matter what happens.
The first step to have a charming personality is to have proper food, proper exercise and proper sleep.”A healthy mind resides in a healthy body”. You might be very intelligent and you might have many good qualities within you like generosity, Kindness and wisdom but if you are not fit you will never be able to enjoy the fruits of life.
Steps to Cheerful Healthy Life
Sleep: The most significant aspect of making a good personality is proper sleep. An average person requires six to eight hours of sleep every day.

You will finish the work which took you five six hours at night in a few minutes. This is because your brain needs refreshment and rejuvenation. Some people suffer from sleep disorders and cannot sleep early at night. This is because they have set up their routine like that. IF you sleep early for one week you will be habitual of sleeping early. The youngsters have the habit of watching TV or talk to their friends or love interest till late in the night and they should seriously get over it because it would affect you as well as them negatively. Sleeping is good for your health but everything in excess is bad and one should not sleep more than six hours a day as it would make you lazy and dull.

• This kind of personality impresses everyone. You all are taught good manners right from the school by your Teachers and by your parents since you are born because your manners will decide your respect in the society.
• Even if you are highly educated but if you behave in a socially unacceptable manner then no would like you or admire you. One of the most horrendous bad manners is spitting in the public. It just turns everyone off completely and you don’t even feel like talking to that person again.

You can get rid of these insecurities if you are aware of the table manners.
• When you go out to have food and the food is being served you should not start having the food until the food is there on all the plates or you might project yourself as a hungry cow who wants to grab food as early as possible.
• Never be critical about the food the host has ordered. You just can’t say that the food is not good or it could have been better because it looks very mean because someone has called you up for the treat and by disrespecting the food, you are disrespecting your host.
• Start your meal only after the host has started the food.
• Never discuss about the cost of the food or you will portray yourself as very poor and low class that you have to think so much before ordering the food.

• You automatically come to know which person likes you and who dislikes you just by their expressions and body language. You can easily guess who is comfortable with you and who is not.
• The multinational companies always prefer personal interviews as the process of selection because any one can perform well in written tests but only in a personal interview the employer can judge your dedication towards work and how genuine you are. If you have applied for an international company which has an office in some other country they will judge you face to face by the means of video conferencing.
• You must have observed that the security cops at the airport can easily identify the criminal just by his body language. A person who is carrying illegal stuff will always be nervous and he will look everywhere and these slight signs can easily be caught by the trained cops.
• A human being can show around 1000 of expressions and he can say a lot without saying anything at all.
• If you are talking to a person at a senior post and he crosses his arms while talking to you that means he is listening to you but he is not open to your ideas. If someone shrugs his or her shoulders that means he doesn’t care and he is indirectly saying you to buzz off. If you slightly move forward while you are in a lecture that means you are eager to listen and learn but if you lean forward a little more that would mean you are aggressive and you want to prove your point. If you are looking at the door, playing with your pen, watch or anything in your hands that means you simply want to leave from there and you are least interested in what’s going.
• One of the most important aspects that could make or break your personality is your posture. Stand with your back straight and arms on the sides. If you keep you back bended it could kill your personality as you would look dull and old no matter how good looking you are or how well dressed up you are. If you are pressing your fingers, moving fingers across your hair or holding your head, it clearly shows that you are way too stressed or nervous.
• keep a distance while you are talking to your colleagues or your boss. You shouldn’t touch any one too much because others might get uncomfortable even if the person you are touching is of same sex. Use right gestures in the right situations to have an attractive personality.

• If you are good at writing you can become a poet, lyricist or a book writer. The name of Mr. William Shakespeare is written in history as the king of writers. Writers die but their work never dies.
• If you want to increase your written communication then you should read newspaper daily. You must have heard the same advice from your teachers and parents earlier also but you never took them seriously. It’s a fact that a person who thoroughly reads Newspaper is so knowledgeable that he can even clear an IAS examination.
• You can write well only if you have knowledge about any particular field and newspaper provides you knowledge about each and every field. If you can’t read the whole newspaper then you could pick up a particular column of the newspaper which is of your interest whether its sports, business or politics.
• Always read the editorial page of the newspaper because the best journalist writes the editorial page and it is very informative. Newspaper will help you in improving your grammar and vocabulary as well.
• Read some nice and inspirational books and novels written by some well known authors. The two states, five point someone, A walk to remember and The monk who sold his Ferrari are some really good books to read. These books will teach you the art of writing and will help you in developing creative and positive thoughts. You will also improve your vocabulary and your grammar.
• If you want to improve your written communication then remove this misconception that you can not write. You can start with hundred words and then slowly you can increase your writing capability and eventually you can even write a book yourself. You should get a grammar book from the market and practice tenses, nouns, adverbs, verbs and prepositions. You should learn ten new words daily.
• Life is a bed of roses but even roses have thorns. God maintains balance in the nature and if there are achievements, love and prosperity in your life then there are failures, heart breaks and betrayals too.
• No person is a totally happy person and the grass is always greener on the other side and you feel that the person who is very rich and has all the comforts of life is very happy in his life but that is not true. The real happiness lies in the love and support of your family, friends and spouse. You work all day to earn money but what is the use of that money if you don’t have any time left to enjoy the fruits of life.
• You live in a middle class family but your family and friends are very supportive and loving still you are not happy because you don’t have the BMW car, android phone and a lavishing house. You can’t wear branded clothes and shoes.
• A person might have money as well as love but he might be suffering from some disease. In short, the human soul is never satisfied and every one faces hardships in life.
• Falling in life is not losing but falling and never getting up is losing. A true winner is a person who loses everything and gets everything back with his own will power.
• Motivation is encouraging the people to be positive and perform well in their life. Motivation can be positive or negative. Motivation is very important because no matter how strong you are you will always need a factor that would drive you to work harder.
• For some people money is the most motivating factor and they will give their best because they want money for their bread and butter.
• Some people want appreciation, recognition and fame so they will work hard to get a senior position and status in your office. They would do anything to get promotions and incentives.
• For some people negative motivation works they work hard because they have the fear of losing. They have the fear of the insult they are going to face if they do not perform efficiently. Some might be insecure that their girl friend or boy friend might leave them for someone who is doing better than them. Different things work for different people and you should find what works out for you.
• You must have wondered that what is special in the people who leave their mark on the world. The great scientist Einstein failed in tenth class but he made most of the inventions because of which you are living a comfortable life.
• All these people don’t have anything special in them it’s just that they dreamt of the life they are leading now. They had the guts to imagine such a lavishing life.
• Explore yourself and know yourself what are you capable of. It’s not necessary that everyone is good at studies you might be a beautiful dancer, a great singer, an artist or a sportsperson. You should take a deep insight and find out that what one talent within you sets you apart from others. You can be a painter, photographer, radio jockey, anchor or Disc jockey.
• Dare to dream and work on the talents you have. If you don’t dream how will you work towards achieving your goals?
• Set goals in your life, work on them and achieve them. you can start from the simplest things like you want to score good in any particular test. You should focus yourself towards cracking that test and hit the target. Many scholars have rightly said that the key to the success is “believe in you”.
• Have faith on yourself that you can achieve anything in your life. You should first love yourself then only others will love you and you will be able to love others. If you harm yourself then how can you expect someone else to love you?
• Believe that you are the best and your confidence should not be diminished by the opinions of others because no one wants you to be more successful than him or her except your parents. People will try to demoralize you and distract you from your goals and if you love yourself you would not let anyone exploit you.
• You can face all odds and reach on the top if you have dedication and you are focused on your goals. You should not be tempted by distractions like Television, internet, cell phones and friends. You are not required to stop enjoying your life but you should use these gadgets and not let these gadgets use you.
