A person’s personality is important as it distinguishes him/her from other individuals and a positive one inspires others to follow him as a leader. The below are tips to building a positive personality.
‘Nothing is achieved without enthusiasm’ – Ralph Waldo Emerson . Enthusiasm is one of the most attractive qualities a person can have. It inspires confidence and goes hand in hand with success.
Think Win -Win
Win-Win sees life as a cooperative arena not a competitive one. It’s a frame of mind that seeks the mutual benefit in all interaction.
Accepting responsibility shows maturity and is a reflection of our attitude. We promote ourselves when we accept additional responsibilities. People are naturally drawn to people that exhibit responsible behavior.
Watch what you say.
Be tactful because the words we speak can cause irreparable damage. Don’t speak just because you feel you have to say something but because you have something to say. As the saying goes ‘A fool speaks without thinking; a wise man thinks before he speaks ‘.
Be Dependable and Loyal.
People should be able to count on you. An old adage says ‘an ounce of loyalty is worth a pound of cleverness’.
It does not matter how talented, skillful and productive you are, dependability is crucial.
