This list may not have been what you were expecting. Let me explain. Your thoughts and feelings have a literal impact on the way that you look, especially if you're like me and your facial expressions tell all.
Character is an inner beauty that has a larger impact on your image than your skin, make up and clothing could ever have.
Life presents many brief opportunities for us to be beautiful or to be ugly. The decision to be one or the other is made every day, often times in less than five minutes.
1. Express gratitude
For increased vibrancy, express gratitude. Bitter, negative people are often described as ominous storm clouds on the verge of bursting with lightning and thunder. On the flip side, gracious people are associated with sunshine and clear skies. Both allude to the countenance of the individual. To be prettier, choose the brighter path.
To dazzle others throughout the day, smile. Smiling makes others feel good. We are attracted to what makes us feel good. Thus, smiling makes you more attractive.
3. Think of others
Catch someone's eye by showing them you care. Women who obsess over themselves are more likely to be unhappy about who they are and how they look. This obsession can be replaced by reaching out to others and focusing on them. This will help you to spend less time attacking yourself and as a result, your self-appreciation will grow. Confidence is a beautiful thing.
4. Be the voice of reason
Astonish others by being the voice of reason and working toward peace in the midst of stress, arguments and confusion.
5. Assume the best
Get a double-take by promoting someone's best qualities. When a person can set aside judgment and exhibit encouragement, the results are stunning.
6. Laugh at yourself
Get a little more sexy and mysterious when you laugh at your mistakes. Revealing the humor in a disappointing situation keeps you young.
7. Stand up for others
Make a spectacular impression by speaking up for someone who isn't around to speak for themselves. Kindness is important to anyone searching for a soul mate.
8. Exercise discipline
Captivate others with discipline. In the moment you'd rather be lazy than accomplish your goals,your attractiveness goes down. Exercising discipline is sure to keep others admiring you from a distance.
Charm those around you by showing you understand or sympathize with their unique perspective. To be understood is a basic human need. Magnetize others to you by validating their individuality.
10. Let your heart beat to the sound of its own drum
Stop the show by being true to you. Do what you believe is right, even if it contradicts popular opinion. Oftentimes the opportunity to fight for what you believe passes in a matter of seconds. Do not allow the fear of what others think keep you from achieving your hopes and dreams. Someone who is living what they believe is a happy person with few regrets. And happiness is the most attractive quality of all.
