How to be liked by others or How to get others to like you?
Some people are very charismatic. Where ever they go they spread positive energy. Actually, everyone likes them and enjoys their company. If they are not around people miss them because they are the person who set the mood for the whole team.
There are other sets of people who are there or not there does not make any difference because either they are calm or enjoy themselves by sitting in a corner or talking in a closed group. Even if someone talks to them they don’t respond enthusiastically.
We all want to be liked and loved by others. Here are the 5 ways to be a likable and lovable person:
1. First way of how to be liked is to Smile :
The smile on our faces. A smile is a positive energy of happiness that attracts another person. So whenever we meet we must greet with a smile. Smile invite another person to come and talk to us. Smile is able to project them as an approachable individual. Let say if we go to a party and if we find someone smiling then we will think that we can go and talk to him, he would look a happy and approachable individual.
We must work on an intentional smile. Forcefully we must push ourselves to have a smiley face. Slowly slowly we will get a habit of a smile. Whenever we meet someone with a smile we have a lasting impact on that individual. We look like approachable individuals to others.

2. Second way of how to be liked by others is to Greet others and be genuinely interested in other individuals
Whenever we must go to a social event then we must meet and greet every individual. Through greeting, we will initiate the conversation.
All the people who are liked by others always have a tendency to initiate the conversation. They are genuinely interested in another individual. They start with introducing themselves and then asking another person about their profession or family.
If you want to learn more about how to greet others well and build your confidence then you can watch my videos on YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYGdbB_F0qii4Zo_rn-rCyg/videos?view_as=subscriber
3. Third way of how to be liked by others is to Get others to speak – talk less and encourage others to talk about themselves:
After we have done the greeting now we must encourage others to speak more because everyone wants to share their story and wants to talk about themselves so give them that opportunity to talk about themselves.
Always ask questions that make others speak about themselves. Like where are you from, what do you do, who all are there in your family, etc.

4. Fourth way of how to be liked by others is to Initiate the topic of other person’s Interest:
We must always initiate the topic of another person’s interest. If we are meeting a teacher then talk about their school, if we are meeting an IT professional then talk about their projects, if we are meeting an entrepreneur then talk about their company. The key to making a healthy conversation that makes the relationship bond stronger (even that relationship is long-term like marriage or a short term like a single meeting) is by talking in another person’s interest. By this, we will treat others as they want to be treated, and by that, they will be happy when in the conversation with you. By this we are not undervaluing ourselves, we are just giving more importance to the relationship.

5. Fifth way of how to be liked by others is to Compliment others in between the discussion:
Try to praise others when you are in conversation with them, this makes other people feel important and special. Praising is a positive energy of pride, we must do that quite often to show how much we like them. Always remember another person’s name as the person’s name is the dearest word to everyone.
SO the whole point is if we want to be missed when we are not there which is if we want to be likable and lovable to others then we have to be an individual who makes others happy and positive. So all the points which I have explained will make another person happy and positive after having a conversation with you. Because of this, he would want to talk to you more and often and whenever you are not there he will miss you.
