People normally think personality development is about how our appearance is. But it is high time we realize that 90% of our personality is what we are on the inside rather that what we are on the outside.
It is very important that we work on our inner personality to enhance outer personality. It will take few days or maybe few months to beautify your appearance. But it takes years to beautify yourself as a person from the inside. How you are on the outside is the reflection of how you are on the inside.
The first thing you should start with is knowing yourself better. Not many of us know what we exactly are. What is good in us and what needs improvement. What we aspire to achieve in life. We just never give a thought to it because we don’t find it important. we hardly give ourselves any time by thinking about self. In personality development it is very important that you know where you are currently and where you want to reach. Where do you wish to see yourself and how? When you know this about yourself, that is the first step towards your confidence building & leadership skills.
Secondly, you need to get rid of any doubts in your mind about yourself. Most of the time what stops us from doing something or taking a step is, self-doubt. We just don’t believe in ourselves. We need to get rid of these negative thoughts that create barriers for you and walk on the path of positive thinking. It will give you the strength to attempt anything and everything. Positive thinking is a very essential part of personality development. Most of your confidence and self-esteem will get built here. There are ways and techniques you can use to help yourself think positively. Do let me know if you want to know about them!
Third most important thing in personality development according to me is ‘smile’. I think smile is something that can enhance your personality at all points of time. Smile indicates a lot of things. It makes you look confident, welcoming, humble, calm and many more. It is like an asset for confident personalities. If you don’t believe me, pick any known personality who according to you is very confident and watch her/him carry themselves. I assure you they always carry one thing for sure – SMILE.
There are many things that come under personality development. But I personally think, working on these things will do most of the work. That doesn’t mean you neglect the other factors. You should definitely work on them too. But these three, top my list. Personality development is a whole big gamut. Let us know if you want to know more about it.
