Ways to be succesful in professional and personal lives

Your likeability determines your success in both professional and personal lives. So pay attention to how you look because it will help you in making a good impression on others.

Telegraph.co.uk reports that if you want to make the right impression on people, keep the following tips in mind:

Dress well: First impressions are formed instantly and physical appearance plays a big part. In the medium to long-term, people base their liking of a person on other traits and will discount their physical "ideal" if the body language appeals.

Smile: When you smile, other people feel good. It doesn't have to be full-wattage all the time. Just sincere. Even when things are not going too well and you force a smile, the empathetic person picks this up and is able to delve into reasons for your mixed feelings.

Expression in the eyes: This comes high in the likeability ratings. Eye contact shows you are interested in someone, both in general situations and in romantic ones. The expression in your eyes conveys a lot and people can detect levels of warmth, sympathy and concern.

Be a good listener: How you respond to other people is sometimes more important than all the traits listed above. When women talk to other women they tend to be more animated: they nod at appropriate times and may make facial expressions to convey empathy.

Men tend to have a problem with focus, so the theme of a conversation gets lost and the responses are off-key. In addition, men don't tend to give so many visual clues to show that they are listening. If you are a man, try responding with your body to what's being said - it will help you focus. If you come across as a person who listens, other people want to gravitate towards you. (IANS)
