First: Form the habit of interesting yourself in other people; and make it your business to find their good qualities and speak of them in terms of praise.
Second: Develop the ability to speak with force and conviction, both in your ordinary conversational tones and before public gatherings, where you must use more volume.
Third: Clothes yourself in a style that is becoming to your physical build and the work in which you are engaged.
Fourth: Develop a positive character, through the aid of the formula outlined in this lesson.
Fifth: Learn how to shake hands so that you express warmth of feeling and enthusiasm through this form of greeting.
Sixth: Attract the people to you by first :attracting yourself” to them.
Seventh: Remember that your only limitation, within reason, is the one which YOU set up in YOUR OWN mind.
- If you will cultivate those finer thoughts, and feelings, and actions, out of which a positive character is built, and then learn to express yourself with force and conviction, you will have developed an attractive personality.
- There is a great power of attraction back of the person who has a positive character, and this power expresses itself through unseen as well as visible sources.
- Every “shady” transaction in which you engage, every negative thought that you think, and every destructive act in which you indulge, destroys just so much of that “subtle something” within you that is known as character.
For example, I do my banking here in Thailand with KTB, not because it’s the closest, but because the tellers, cashiers, and even people working the door are unbelievably charismatic.
I always eat pizza at a restaurant called wine connection, not only because the pizza is delicious, but because the waiters and waitresses are amazing with service.
The people who I engage with throughout my daily life I’m attracted to because their personalities, character, and charisma is rare.
