The moment of reckoning:
Till a very long time, I had no idea how some people attracted a huge fan following. I used to see in at school, college and even at home and office that some people have all the luck in the world. They seem to be the best looking, always suave and confident when they walk into a room. My research on some of them that I know also proved that they marginally earned better than their less popular colleagues.
Some people have to buy twitter likes and retweets to get their popularity mojo out while others do it with elan and grace. You know I had to find the answer to this. So, I set about observing them. And this is what I understood:
- Authenticity is their other name:
Majority of the people are not popular because they are trying hard to be one! They are mostly the ones who are extremely comfortable in their own skin. They have nothing fake or pretentious about them and because of their “true to self” attitude they tend to shine in the group and people obviously get attracted to them.
- Always a call away:
People always mortify those who are compassionate and show genuine interest in them. Successful people are so helpful and kind that they tend to put others first; be it real life or even on social media sites.
- Worshipping the body and the mind:
This is something that they do religiously. Exercising their bodies and mind is a sine qua non of success. A healthy body houses a calm mind and a calm mind can only beget success rightfully and have the intelligence to preserve it longer. So there!
- Setting an example:
There is a big difference between setting an example and preaching the choir. Successful people in all their honesty and integrity make sure that they do not go about giving unsolicited advice and instructions. They let other people learn from their mistakes.
