Have you ever met someone that seems irresistible? Their laugh is contagious, everything they say is interesting, you desperately want to be their friend? They have some kind of je-ne-sais-quoi that makes people gravitate towards them. How can you harness these qualities too?
1. Find something you love and be passionate about it
Do you love film? Maybe you just really like to drink coffee? Take what you love and throw yourself into it. Learn about the history, culture, and community around your passions (even if you're just into baking cookies - there is a science behind it!)
Cultivate your passions and unapologetically celebrate them. Find something that, when you start talking about it, puts a sparkle in your eye.
2. Get out of your comfort zone
You know how some people just look so at ease in any situation? It's either a really good act or they're used to being put somewhere they aren't used to. Do something you don't normally do once a week. Go to a movie by yourself, go out to drink with your friends at a new bar, talk to someone new at school. Little things will build up your confidence to take on bigger challenges.
Do you know how gorgeous you are when you smile?! No one wants to talk to someone with a scowl on their face. Radiate positive energy and you'll find that it comes right back at you.
4. Keep some things to yourself
First step of being interesting, magnetic, and mysterious, don't share your life, thoughts, and favorite cat videos 24/7 on social media. Do something like taking a bike ride at sunset and keep it to yourself. Don't take a picture for Instagram, don't tweet about it, just do it. Keep it all to yourself, your own little secret.
5. Be kind
Similar to smiling, being open to helping people and being just generally friendly goes a long way. Be open to new people and don't treat anyone (who doesn't deserve it) coldly.
6. Love yourself
You are interesting and unique and beautiful and there is literally no one exactly like you on the face of this earth. Seriously, not one in this planet of billions of people. Celebrate who you are and don't try to change for anyone else.
