Ten Steps To Get People to Like You


Are you a likeable person? Are you the kind of person people are naturally drawn to?

You may think you are either born with a likeable personality or you are not, but the truth is, we can all hone our likeability quotient. The best way to do that is to take the focus off of our selves and concentrate on the other person. When you are focused on listening to other people, making them comfortable and caring about them, you will find people will be drawn to you.

People like people who care!

Here are ten steps to help you get people to like you:

1. Make a conscious decision to remember names. One memory trick I used to use in school was making up rhymes in my head such as remembering the pelvis was your hip area and people used to refer to Elvis Presley as “Elvis the Pelvis” because he shook his hips. You can use a similar trick to remember names.

2. Be a comfortable person to be around. Be like an old shoe, not a stuffy, too-tight one!

3. Be easy-going! Don’t let life ruffle your feathers, just take things in stride and roll with it.

4. Leave your ego at the door. Don’t be a know-it-all. Be humble.

5. Be interesting! Read, live and experience all that this wonderful life has to offer. It will give you many things to talk about!

6. Get rid of the unpleasant parts of your personality that may rub people the wrong way. If you need to, ask a close friend or relative to be honest with you about what you could do to polish yourself.

7. Heal misunderstandings. As Christians, we are to forgive and move on. Don’t hold on to old grudges.

8. Practice liking people, even if you have to pretend to do so in the beginning. Be like Will Rogers who said, “I never met a man I didn’t like.”

9. Never miss an opportunity to congratulate someone on their achievement or to express sympathy or sorrow.

10. Be spiritual. This will enable you to support people when they need it most and help them find their strength.

I hope these tips will help you achieve the kind of personality that attracts many friends to you.

Have a blessed day!
