People who are confident in themselves are often able to captivate and attract other people. However, this security and self-confidence should never become pride or border on narcissism.

True self-confidence is when you know yourself and your strengths. However, at the same time, you’re also aware of your limitations. In addition, you have the ability to recognize them and try to improve them every day.

Furthermore, self-confidence is nourished, in turn, by other basic and essential factors. Among these are high self-esteem and a positive self-concept. The true magic lies in the balance of these dimensions.

2. Create your own brand

In a world of people who are mostly the same, being different is attractive. However, at times, many of us come to think that being different causes us to be detached, criticized and even separated from society itself.

Having a hooked nose like an eagle’s beak or being overweight, for example, can feel like real obstacles for getting the confidence to attract others. So can having an unsymmetrical face and being too tall or too short.

However, all of these nuances must be accompanied by self-confidence. Demonstrate to the world that you’re unique, that you have your own brand and that you’re happy with who you are.

Let’s learn, therefore, to take advantage of our peculiarities.

3. The power of non-verbal communication

Attraction begins with a gaze and knowing how to connect with others through it. In turn, you also need to learn to think about your posture. Crossed legs and crossed arms are like barriers when it comes to generating confidence.

You must use open body language to show that you’re calm and at ease. Use your hands to gesture, smile to captivate, head to nod and show interest, and your body to show confidence and closeness.

You must, therefore, learn how to establish a close connection with others. There are people who know how to do this by being real, and truly interested in those they’re with, and never cease to be humble. This makes them highly attractive.

5. Something unusual

As we’ve pointed out, if you obsess about “fitting in” and sharing characteristics similar to other peoples’, you’ll only dissolve in the ocean of the ordinary without ever standing out.

Do you want to attract other people, be different and have everybody focus on you in a room full of similar people? Then you must highlight a singular aspect that defines who you are. This is something that others will remember or identify you with.

You can be someone who likes the “pin-up” style, has original hair, or wears classic shoes. Or you could be a man with an elegant mustache, who wears a bow tie, or who always dresses casually.

Being original must harmonize with your appearance and way of being. You should never try to be someone you aren’t, or something that distances yourself from your true identity.
