8 Psychology Hacks that will improve your social skills.

How can you tell if someone is into you?

Whenever you are in a group of people, wait until everybody laughs. People are more likely to turn to the ones they feel the closest. This trick has multiple benefits that you can take advantage of. You can even notice when two people are into each other.

Ask for small favors.

Did you know that asking for simple and easy favors can make people to start liking you more? Try it, you got nothing to lose.

Believe everyone is already your friend.

Have you ever felt instant dislike from a person? Ignore it! It must just be in your imagination. Talk to them as if you were sure they love you. It might turn things around and you may make a new friend.

Boost your confidence.

Think of what makes you feel more confident. If you think a nice haircut will make you feel more secure, get that haircut! Anything that will make you feel you look better, will obviously make you feel better and people will notice that confidence. Turn your mind into a more positive and secure mood and people will be attracted to you.

Call them by their name.

Subconsciously, calling someone by their name, creates a comfortable environment. Think of it, strangers don’t know your name. If someone calls you by your name, you’ll drop some of your barriers immediately. People who call you by your name, are normally people who feel comfortable being around you.

Start by offering something people can’t deny.

If you start your offering with the most expensive item, they will refuse to buy it. But if you start with something at a very good and reasonable price, you can work your way up to sell something higher. Stores constantly do it in your face, they show you a small item and you always end up paying for the expensive one.

Nod your head!

This is my favorite trick. Constantly nod your head during a conversation. It makes people react positively to any comments you give them!

Smile!

Smile. Smile the instant at which you cross eyes with anyone. Make sure your smile is as natural as possible. People instinctively smile when looking into their real friends. You will notice that, in future greetings, they will have a smile on their faces when starting conversations with you.

Today’s NO prepares you for tomorrow’s Yes.

We all have dreams.

If you know your dream… Then you are on the right path. Sometimes our expectations turn to be, look, or feel a bit unattainable. And that, is the main reason why only a few get to accomplish their most inner goals.

This post is mainly based on a quote:
TODAY’S “NO” PREPARES YOU FOR TOMMOROW’S “YES”

If you have a dream. It is because, at one point of your life, you truly believed it as possible.

Why is it, then, that sometimes we stop chasing our most inner goals? When we start a new project, we always start enthusiastic and during the path we lose ourselves. Either by distraction due to an overwhelming lifestyle, comfort zone, or loss of motivation.

Whenever you start a new project. Ask yourself:

  • Will I be willing to continue even if I don’t see any progress on the way?
  • Will I stay firm on my beliefs even if nobody else follows or understands what I am looking for?
  • Do I really believe I can do it?

You will face many obstacles! Trust me. But what’s the excitement of chasing a dream if no obstacles come? Your mindset is everything. Obstacles will make you learn, learn to be ready for any circumstances.

Life will tell you in multiple opportunities that your dream is ridiculous. But, honestly, only ridiculous people achieve their purpose.

We all have setbacks. It’s a matter of attitude to keep moving forward when the road gets dark.

  1. Learn from your mistakes, but never let them be your excuses.
  2. Always go one step forward.
  3. Improvise!
  4. Do what no one else does.

Yes, NOs might be disencouraging for some. But they are also the reason why the most successful got that far.
