Your personality will change more in your twenties than it did in the previous decade of your life, and it will change even more in the decade following that. Before you reach your thirties, you’ll be forced to decide whether you want to spend the rest of your life as the person you are now, or whether you want to make changes so dramatic that everyone will see your new self as someone completely different from who you were before. If you choose the latter, here’s how to transform your personality into something amazing by turning these ten personality tips into permanent habits for yourself.
Lose the Ego:
One of the best ways to transform your personality is by letting go of ego and becoming more humble. Arrogance can be an ugly trait that ruins relationships, but humility helps you connect with people on a deeper level. It may take some time for you to break bad habits and embrace new ones, but it will make all the difference in how others perceive you.
Do Selfless Things:
Doing selfless things will make you a happier and more positive person. The good vibes might rub off on people around you, too. Here are a few ideas to get started:
Buy someone’s coffee at Starbucks for them and ask for nothing in return.
- Give someone money without asking for anything in return.
- Help someone cross the street or hold the door open for them. You can also be generous by offering to help with homework or taking notes for someone while they speak in class.
- Doing good deeds makes you feel better about yourself and makes others feel better as well.
- Donate clothes that have no meaning for you anymore (like a shirt from an old boyfriend).
- Volunteer your time at a soup kitchen or animal shelter.
- Offer to tutor students who need extra help.
- Walk dogs at the local pet store.
These are just a few examples of how you can change your life for the better!
Stop Comparing Yourself:
You are not defined by what you own, what your status is, or how much money you have in the bank. None of that determines whether or not you’re a good person. You are just as deserving of happiness and success as anyone else in the world. So stop comparing yourself to others, and start living life on your own terms.
If you have a pet, thank them. If you have a family member, thank them. If you have a friend, thank them. It is so important to show gratitude and not take things for granted in life.
Practicing kindness can be hard in today’s world, but it is the best way to improve your mood, which will make you feel more energized and less stressed. And, when you are kinder to others they will be kinder back.
I’ve always been an introvert. I don’t like speaking up in front of people, I have a hard time starting conversations with strangers, and I don’t like being the center of attention. It’s taken me years to understand that this is just how my personality is. Now that I’m older, I’ve realized what it means to be vulnerable and embrace who you are as a person.
Enjoy Humor and Jokes:
The key is to find that one thing that you really enjoy. For me, it’s making people laugh and seeing them smile. So make jokes, crack puns, and even do stand up comedy when the opportunity arises. It’s a lot of work to keep things fresh but it’s worth it because you are having a blast doing what you love!
Focus on What Makes You Happy:
Think about what makes you happy and pursue it. Figure out a way to spend time on it every day, even if it’s just for fifteen minutes. Figure out a way to make money from it if possible. The more happiness you have in your life, the better!
Do what makes you happy. Rather than focusing on what could go wrong, think about all the possibilities for success and happiness that are available to you. The more positive energy you put out there, the more positive energy will be drawn back towards you.
Smile as much as possible. Even if you don’t feel like smiling, fake it for a few minutes and your mood will improve drastically.
Surround Yourself With Likeminded People:
Surround yourself with people that are supportive of your goals and who you can learn from. Surrounding yourself with people who want the best for you will help motivate and push you even further.
Say No To Negative Thoughts:
Negative thoughts will only hold you back from achieving the things you want in life.
Make a List of Goals (four sentences) Create a list of all the things that you want in life, and then prioritize them. This will give you something to work towards each day, which will make it easier for you to focus on accomplishing one goal at a time.
You should surround yourself with positive people. You should do something that makes you happy every day. You should wake up early and start your day off right by writing down 3 good things that happened the previous day before getting out of bed, or writing down what you hope will happen tomorrow before going to bed at night. And lastly, be kind to yourself first before being kind to others.
