How to be magnetic
I've always prided myself in being an extremely genuine + authentic person, but as I grow + mature, I find it even more important so show up as myself - guard down, open heart, no judgments. We all walk around this world with anxieties, fears + insecurities, and it's those of us who are brave enough to say the first thing in the elevator or give that person on the street a compliment that help break these barriers.
I have found the most magnetic people to be the ones who tear down these societal impediments, who walk around with a sense of authenticity like they really do not care what anybody thinks - and what makes them so cool is that you can tell that it's genuine! They have an effortless ease about them that cannot be fabricated.
Some quick ways to be the most magnetic person in the room:
STAY OFF OF YOUR PHONE AS YOU WALK INTO A ROOM; MAKE EYE CONTACT
GIVE THE COMPLIMENT OR STRIKE UP THE CONVERSATION FIRST
BE TRUE TO YOURSELF aka DON'T GIVE A SH*T WHAT PEOPLE THINK
DO THE HARD OR WEIRD OR QUIRKY THING
DON'T TAKE YOURSELF TOO SERIOUSLY; LAUGH AT YOURSELF
WEAR YOUR HEART ON YOUR SLEEVE
DON'T BE AFRAID TO TAKE UP SPACE
LET PEOPLE TALK ABOUT THEMSELVES; BE GENUINELY CURIOUS TO LEARN ABOUT OTHERS
DON'T DOWNPLAY YOUR SUCCESSES; DON'T BE AFRAID TO TALK ABOUT YOURSELF TOO!
CONFIDENCE HAS ALWAYS BEEN, AND ALWAYS WILL BE, KEY
ALWAYS LEAD WITH HONESTY
SAY WHAT YOU MEAN + MEAN WHAT YOU SAY
BE CLEAR ABOUT YOUR BOUNDARIES + ENFORCE THEM OFTEN WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY GOING WITH THE FLOW
STAY OUT OF THE MUNDANE + IN YOUR PASSION
DO LESS. SAY LESS.
THINK BIG, LIVE BOLDLY, AND MAKE IT F*CKING HAPPEN ;)
