How to leave a good first-impression

 

Whether you’ve got a job interview or an important oral exam; whether a family dinner or any meeting, we all want to make the most excellent first impression. It is not difficult. You just have to be conscious about a few things. Don’t be boring or flat, someone they’ll easily forget but rather leave a good impression and be a person that they’ll want to meet again.
Here are some tips to help you leave a good first-impression:
Be yourself
Always be yourself. The only thing which makes you interesting is your own unique character. Always show people your own views, talk about your own ideas, and express your own vision on life. Every person in this word is different from every other person and this is what makes us ‘us’. Never try to hide your real views.
Always stay positive
Positivity has not only always attracted but has also impressed people. Never show any sort of negativity about anything. If you’re asked to give comments about something, always try to give positive comments and if you want to criticize something; then criticize it in a way to take out something positive from it. Not only in opinions or comments, show your positive approach even in your actions.
Confidence
Nothing can help you more to leave a splendid impression than your confidence. Be ‘confident’. This one word can change an entire impression. Everyone is impressed from confidence.
Smile
Always have that elegant, understanding smile on your face. Talk to people, show them you’re listening and interested with a huge smile on your face. Not only does this enhance trust but will also make you feel better. It is not necessary to show your teeth; just a little smile will do it. Try; you will thank me for it later.
Dress to Impress
Always be genuine. People first see you and then they talk to you. Make your first impression unique, so be authentic and dress properly. Find clothes that express who you are, whether it’s old fashioned, new fashioned, just pick something you feel comfortable in. If you’re well dressed, you’ll feel great about yourself.
Don’t be embarrassed about your past
Don’t be shy or embarrassed about your interests, habits, dislikes or anything. Be proud of what you have; even if other people think it is weird. Being embarrassed about certain aspects from your background or personality will always show instability. Don’t be afraid to talk about your interests. Share them, talk about them and express how much you are fond of them. Good or bad, serious or funny; whatever stuff you have, be proud of it.
Meet new people graciously
Never hesitate to meet new people. In-fact if someone introduces you to a friend of theirs who is stranger to you; meet them kindly and be friendly with them. This will show your generous nature. People are always impressed by a person who is able to deal with anyone freely.
Make conversation but don’t be too pushy
There is a saying ‘a person who can’t make a conversation for more than a minute has no future.’ Be interesting. Show your knowledge and you must have a bit of know-how about what you’re talking about. Always make a good conversation which could last at-least for five minutes. But don’t be fake or pushy or boring or even illogical; this will only bring your marks down. Listen to the other person and respond to it. A good conversation will always leave a good impression.
