Life can be hard sometimes, but I’ve realized there are a few simple actions you can do to help you be successful and get to where you want to be in life. They may seem basic, but if you actively practice these in everyday life, I promise that your overall happiness and likability levels will go through the roof.
Hello — As a culture we have become socially awkward. People text each other from a room away rather than make the “long trek” across the hall. People don’t even say hello to each other anymore. So if you’re standing in line at a store, waiting for class to start, etc., just say hello. Networking is important and you never know who you’re standing next to until you make an attempt to find out.
How ya doin’? — People like to talk about themselves, which isn’t a bad thing, so why not use it to your advantage? You might even learn something in the process. If the conversation keeps on, you can get the chance to talk about yourself as well. Again, this can help with networking. Being a good conversationalist can open doors for you in life.
Have a good day — When you’re saying goodbye, throw in a “have a good day.” Little things go a long way so why not get some good juju if you can? Putting some positive vibes in the world will help you in the long run.
Positive attitude — Nobody likes a negative Nancy or Nate. You’re alive and well, so be happy! It can be easy to focus on life’s negatives, but focusing on the positives will benefit you. If you’re always taking to social media to talk negatively, others may want to distance themselves from you.
Get out there! Mingle, smile, be positive and actively listen to what others have to say. It’s only a matter of time before you become happier and see changes in your life!
