Have you ever happened upon a person who is so naturally friendly that when you put him in a room filled to the brim with strangers and depart awhile, he will have made friends with almost everyone in the room, in no time, by the time you return? such an one is undeniably nice and super charismatic insomuch that he can charm anyone into doing anything.

 

Conversely, a socially-empowered person will achieve so much greatness because of his positive, overbearing influence on people who will readily catapult him to success (and fame and fortune if he desires both).

 

He earns the trust and all-out support of the people, whom he had helped before. He never runs out of help. He can do anything rallying an army of partisan people behind him.

 

All because he knows how to maximise his social potential!

 

See, if you know your social skills and make use of them, you will attain self-empowerment and wield enormous power. Self-empowerment centres above making a general overhaul in your life and turning yourself into a happier, more successful person that readily provides succour to people around him.

 

If you can be one of those people-persons, then your success is inevitable and non-negotiable – absolutely set in stone.

 

But to be this amiable person who wields appreciable social fire-power, you have to possess the right skill-set and know where and how to start.

 

 

Pay utmost attention to the following ten avenues to social greatness:

 

1 Be genuine

Never give room to hypocrisy, be authentic at all times. Do not act sophisticatedly, just be yourself!

 

Hypocrisy will only bring you down low.

 

Be genuinely nice and interested in people. Once you hint that you are Mr. Hypocrite with self-centred ambitions, you can kiss your social influence goodbye even before it gets the chance to grow.

 

2 Be the greatest listener that you were born to be

To earn the love and trust of the people you aim to influence and lead, listen to their problems and empathise with them. Be the genuine shoulder they can trust to lean on.

 

Do not just hear them out, listen to them with your heart. Make eye contact whenever anyone confronts you with their challenges. Listen as if every word matters – and it does. Let him know that he can find you a readily available close confidant.

 

3 Laugh out loud when necessary

 

I do not mean that you force yourself to crack up and burst into laughter at every joke which you may not find funny. This basically means finding humour in things, and not appearing far too serious and formal when they need you to loosen up, humility-personified and become more easily approachable.

 

A person who oozes an awesome lot of sense of humour will undoubtedly attract mass appeal and eventually, magnetise success; compared to the damn too-serious, constipated-looking un-gentleman or lady always wearing an angry-looking, formal countenance.

 

4 Do not forget yourself

 

In the process of fluttering around like a social butterfly, you might forget yourself – allowing everyone to push you over.

 

Remember, love and value yourself and have others treat you the way you would treat them.

 

If you deem yourself respectable and worthy of affection, people will flock to you and not trample on you.

 

5 Do random acts of kindness

 

You can borrow a leaf from the book of the richest dead man of our time, John D. Rockefeller (besides the ancient King Solomon on Israel of course) whose estate is now worth well over $100 billion Us dollars and actually cultivate a life of giving to those in need – who will never be able to repay you.

 

Giving to the rich with a view to obtaining favour is an idiotic undertaking. See that you do not suck up to anyone and get sucked-in down that sinkhole; it holds no meaningful reward for any worthwhile cause.

 

Little acts of kindness matter the most and this can be as simple as feeding a homeless man, helping an elderly cross the street or giving a surprise you-take-care card to a lonely woman. You will need to get down from any high-horse you are sitting on to be able to do any of this.

 

When was the last time you helped someone in need who is not in your circle of friends and committee of professional contacts? Gauge your answer with what was obtainable with you when you were much younger.

 

When we were kids, kindness was taught to us and we practised it live a great deal even to total strangers. It is high-time we revived the good old deeds and this time, let them stick with you for good.

 

6 Reconnect with old friends

 

It is sad how certain friendships from the past are left to die; but thanks to technology, they can now be revived with minimal efforts.

 

Not all past friendships are worth giving a shot; yet there are those rare, exceptional cases where re-connecting with a past, now highly influential, former classmate or schoolmate can be beneficial.

 

Relive the good old days by flipping your yearbook and locate the great people whom you want to communicate with again.

 

Adding these old friends to your roster of support peers will surely make you feel good all over again – even if you are not going to become bosom friends like old times.

 

7 Develop your personality

 

Are you grouchy, grumpy and generally morose? You can’t go through life, and definitely not lead a group people effectively, with those glaring faults. And really, who wants a grouchy friend anyway?

 

Keep working on yourself and get rid of all your bad traits and habits that perpetually hamper your growth.

 

8 Be confident

 

Glide to the other corner of the room confidently and introduce yourself to people with that winning smile of yours.

 

Remember: be confident, not arrogant.

 

9 Keep nurturing your relationships

 

Your relationship with your family, friends and significant others must be deemed too precious to suffer neglect.

 

Go out of your way, have fun with them regularly and do things together.

 

Happiness will never desert your camp as long as the people who matter the most are closest to you.

 

10 Practise self-control

 

This is the hardest part. Inability to control your spirit-man, temper wise, is capable of truncating any meaningful growth you have worked assiduously for over the years in an instant and set back even the most knowledgeable, calculated of men.

 

When angry, do not snap at anyone.

Stay calm and cool collected (even if it can be extremely difficult at times).

 

Be mature enough to take control of situations and transform your anger into something more productive and momentous.

 

As soon as reasonable people discover that your anger goes to volcanic, stratospheric proportions rather easily, they will find it hard to come to you for anything – let alone yield themselves to you.

 

Rallying people for mutually beneficial endeavours means becoming a better and more lovable person that the people can easily relate with. One who openly sees and identifies himself as one of them; one who speaks up for and solidarises with them.

 

Ever wondered why the Biblical Moses was able to successfully earn the trust and lead the ancient Israel, a people notorious for their crass obstinacy and unruly conduct, out of captivity? He openly identified with them in their afflictions when he could easily have opted to remain and be addressed as a Prince of Egypt.

 

Even Jesus Christ of Nazareth, throughout his earthly ministry, openly identified with sinners in their dire, abject state in order to minister salvation to them.

 

Identifying with people you seek to lead in their affliction will ultimately earn you their trust and project you as the anointed, special one they have been waiting for to arrive the scene; thereby creating an immensely profitable, win-win situation where the people know they can turn to you and you to them any time, any day, anywhere.

 

Do you know of an important avenue that can lead its traveller to greatness in today’s technology-driven, fast-paced society? Now is your turn to have a say!
