Our individual personality makes up the very essence of our totality as a human being. We are judged on our personality through our character. So, it is either we have a good or bad personality depending on how others perceive it.
What contributes to a good and pleasing personality? How can we project our personality in such a way that will attract people? It is a given fact that we all have unique individual personalities. We can never be someone else we are not, no matter how hard we try to imitate each other. But we can choose to have a character that stands out from the rest or simply win admiration from people. Having an admirable personality is not just about being physically attractive or appealing. As initially mentioned, it is a complete package – physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, and general well-being.
One essential element in personality development is positive thinking. This conditioning improves the mental aspect of our personality. Let us now see how positive thinking can contribute towards better personality development.
Personality Development on Mental Well-Being
A sound mental well-being is an important aspect of personality development. There are many ways to achieve this and being optimistic is one among them. Make an effort to shift negative thoughts to positive thinking. Let go of negative self-talk as it only distresses the mind. Others may not have realized it but they have made negative self-talk a habit. Thoughts are best expressed either verbally or through actions. They become more realistic rather than just keeping it in your mind.
You can start by listing down the affirmative statements you can think of, and then apply them in verbal context during conversations or even when praising yourself. Doing this will gradually transition your paradigm into a more positive approach and you will begin to see things on a brighter side all the time. In the long run, it will become a mental habit.
Positive Attitude means Pleasing Personality
We learned that positive thinking is also manifested through a positive attitude, since our thinking, feelings, and actions are always a match. Our attitude speaks so much of who we are either professionally or personally.
People despise those who conduct in an undesirable manner. It follows that when you have a bad attitude, you think, feel and act or even react negatively toward people and situations. Then, the impression you create on people is someone having a displeasing personality.
If you wish to create a good impression of yourself toward others, you would rather consider seeing things on a positive side. This will eliminate ill thinking and unwanted attitude. You will learn to deal with others with respect, having more consideration and sensitivity towards their feelings and opinions.
The Positive Character Traits in Personality Development
Positive thinking enhances our personality through the positive character traits we get out of it. These admirable traits help us grow in personal and professional aspect of our life. By cultivating constant positive thinking habit, We develop the following:
Positive thinking accompanied with enthusiasm drives the passion to attain something you want to achieve. Do not allow moments of lapses and dull instances wherein you just sit blankly.
Obviously, with constructive and affirmative thoughts, you will be transformed into an optimistic person. You will learn how to take more control of trying situations, and will view every action and circumstance in a good way.
When you have learned to see the positive and brighter side of things, you are bound to become more flexible in dealing with all sorts of undertakings in life.
Well, with a positive attitude that knows how to treat and respect people accordingly, you will also have learned to respect yourself more in the process. Trust that you are capable of radiating that admirable personality to others who may need to realize their worth.
Who would not want to have a confident personality? Show that you can be entrusted with any task. Be positive in manifesting this confidence, but do not be too arrogant of yourself.
When you have made positive thinking a habit in every little or big thing you do, maintain consistency and self-control of your thinking and emotions. Always keep a humble and kind heart.
