Most human beings harbor generally superficial tendencies, which is why most people respond to marketing that features great models and celebrities.
Attractive people are more likely to become leaders, make more money, get better opportunities, and attract other attractive people as mates.
But beauty is not the only thing that makes people attractive. There are many people out there with slightly better than average looks who are a magnet for adoration.
Think hard about the attractive people you know. You’ll find that most aren’t movie star material and you likely know some who are beautiful on the outside but not so attractive once you get to know them.
Incredibly attractive people make it their business to stay attractive regardless of how life shines upon them. Here’s how they do it, along with suggestions how you can be more attractive as well.
1. They dress appropriately
Dressing well doesn’t require a lot of money, but it does require a bit of thought and attention. Incredibly attractive people are fashion conscious not due to vanity but because they know that clothing can set the right mood and tone. They know when to dress it up or take it casual to fit the appropriate environment. You can feel a bit more together by studying up on a few fashion blogs or going shopping with a friend that has good taste. Wear fashion proudly and people will notice.
2. They are Good listeners.
Many people are preoccupied with themselves and what’s on their own mind. So when someone genuinely shows interest in another and listens, they immediately strengthen their connection with that person. I have personally become closer with a mere acquaintance through sharing an important story. Incredibly attractive people have mastered the art of listening. Try doubling your personal listening-to-talking ratio for a week and enjoy the noticeable difference.
3. They take care of themselves.
It’s difficult to be around people who neglect themselves. It’s often a clear sign of low self-esteem. Incredibly attractive people hold themselves in high regard. They are strong in self-confidence and care about their bodies. They enjoy life and want to be around for as long as possible. Make your own body a priority. You don’t have to be a perfect specimen, but good hygiene and maintenance go a long way to show people that you matter.
4. They are willing to learn.
There is no question that smart is sexy and ignorance is ugly. Incredibly attractive people know you don’t have to be a brainiac to maintain admiration, but it helps to be aware of current events and develop your mind. Dedicate an hour a day to making yourself smarter and watch a whole new class of people join you in discussion.
5. They are always cheerful.
Incredibly attractive people love life, all aspects of it. They thrill to challenges as much as they enjoy the rewards of success. They make the most of every minute and live in the moment. They are not afraid to share their joy in their movements and on their face. Feeling unattractive? Try finding the little joys in your day and express each positive notion with a big smile. Soon people will wonder what’s causing your happiness and want to join you.
