How likable are you? The answer to that question can largely be answered by the answer to this question: How much do you like other people?
Up front..do you like people or do you look at them with skepticism.
I had a “Friend” whose 1st impression of everyone was super-critical.
Will Rogers, “I never met a man I didn’t like.”
He was a Native American, who identified himself as Cherokee Indian…in the 1920’s. Prejudice was rampant. He had every right to be negative and play the victim. Instead he chose to give people the benefit of the doubt.
He became one of the most influential men in the world by making friends with everyone.
How to make people like you is real simple:
- Be yourself.
- Like people.
Be positive about them. Doesn’t mean be naive or gullible. Be vigilant…and be kind at the same time. Like people and they will (mostly) like you back.
