Important Factors For Good Personality
The three important factors of good personality are sincerity, knowledge, and service.
Sincerity means being yourself. Of course, you cannot help imitating those you admire, but imitating is not copying. Study the good qualities of those you admire and strive to develop them in yourself.
The second factor is knowledge. Ignorance leads to fear; knowledge gives confidence. Read widely and wisely. The real purpose of reading is not to accumulate knowledge but to use it.
Social service gives extensive opportunities for self-expression; it helps to cultivate tact and teaches tolerance; it stresses the futility of flattery and exposes the hollowness of hypocrisy. Serve your neighbor and you will learn a lot about leadership.
To develop a good personality you need enthusiasm and determination. Study yourself. Make a list of your good qualities and list of your shortcomings. Cultivate good habits to replace the bad ones.
