Even if you are sitting on a mountain of gold, you cannot buy a personality. Our personality is what sets us apart from the rest. With all shades of the rainbow and the colour of black holes, your personality belongs to only you. You may know some really charming and warm people and a few people who you would like to steer away from when they try to make eye contact. Personality always trumps appearances. You could be the most beautiful and talented person in the world but if you have a horrible personality, you are well on your way to getting cancelled on Twitter, or in a lesser budget, getting ignored at social situations. Your personality is fluid, it takes different forms in different situations and evolves with time. It is also moulded by your experiences. Your personality plays an important role in the success of your professional and personal life. If you feel like your personality is driving a wedge between you and others or stopping you from achieving your goals, it is time to take a better look at yourself and make some improvements. Being true to yourself makes you look more genuine and authentic. Many people tend to hide their real self and imitate another person who is well liked by others. This often comes off as fake and annoying. Being yourself will make you feel comfortable in your own skin and you tend worry less about impressing others. This means they get a glimpse of your beautiful self. As painful as it can be for certain people, do not run away from social situations. Do not be afraid to put yourself out there and explore. Even if you completely bomb during an interaction, you have atleast learned what not to do the next time. Engaging socially tends to make you feel less lonely and you will eventually feel less anxious and more comfortable with people. So the next time someone invites you to an event, do not say you broke your leg and stay home all day. You need to try your best to be more approachable and inviting. If people avoid you like the plague, get to the bottom of why its happening and change it. If it is due to some of your past actions, try to make amends. Offer some nice words to your peers and try to smile at them, it can invoke positive feelings in you and them. If your colleague gets a new hair cut or a shirt ask them about it, if they have done a good job on a project let them know you appreciate them. Trying find some common likes and disliked between you and others will give you ample things to talk about and bond over as well.
