New Delhi, August 21, 2017: Personality is not something we are born with, but something that we advance over a period of time. A pattern of thinking and feeling that it is, we humans are capable of shaping it the way we like, however, the process demands dedication and constant intentional behavior, so after a point of time, you don’t have to try anymore, as it becomes a part of your nature. To have a good personality, apparently, is to be likable and interesting. If you are seeking personality development, Here are 10 tips to get you there.

Identify your traits: Now that you’ve decided to work on improving your personality, firstly you need to make a list of what all you need to eliminate from or inculcate in your existing personality. Basically, Know your strengths and weaknesses and work on them.


Apologize when wrong: It’s not that hard to apologize when you’re wrong, and even if it is, let me tell you a secret, It is not going to make you any smaller, it always works in your favor instead.

Optimism for good: Nobody likes to be surrounded by negativity. If you feel like you own some of it, throw it away without any delay, and trust me, you would see the change, both in yourself and people’s conduct towards you.

Appreciate others: Complimenting someone is no hard nut to crack. Bestow compliments like you bestow ‘hellos’. It not only makes someone else’s day, but make you develop a charming personality as well.

Embrace your insecurities: It’s ok to have insecurities, everybody has it, but the power is not in feeding them, but dealing with them. They are not flaws, they are what make you who you are, unique and amazing.

Be polite: Did you ever see a person screaming at the waiter, and thought to yourself, “how cute!”? No? Neither did I. Politeness is a quality we hardly see in people these days, but the quality we must all get on well, in order to have that great personality that everyone talks about.

Start ignoring ignorance: Be curious. Explore. Experience. You certainly cannot know everything, but that shouldn’t stop you from trying. Awareness is important, and also attractive!

Be flexible: Rigidity is the root problem of most, no wait, all the arguments that we have today. That’s true that we can’t always agree with a person, but we can still give the other person’s opinion a try, right? If you still don’t agree, then it’s alright, the sun is not going to stop rising and the world is definitely not ending. You don’t have to impose what you think on others. Two people can have different opinions, learn to live with it.

Be a good listener: The world is well equipped with talkers, but to be a Good listener is a real task. Listening to somebody makes the other person feel important. It is a skill that most people admire, and a trait that one must try to instill in their personality.

But the most important of all-

Be yourself: Personality is something that you can always improve on, but that doesn’t mean you have to completely change yourself. You don’t have to try too hard to be something you are not. Pretense is a real personality killer! You only have to improve, upgrade, make sure you do not lose your essence in the process because that is what gives you a unique personality of your own.

Tokyo Olympics 2020 Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar enter semi finals.

Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar (57kg) and Deepak Punia (86kg) enjoyed fruitful outings at the Tokyo Olympic Games as they secured semifinal berths in their respective weight categories at the Makuhari Messe on Wednesday.

On the opening day of the wrestling competition, Ravi Kumar defeated Bulgaria's Georgi Vangelov 14-4 on technical superiority to reach the last-four in the men's 57kg category, while compatriot Deepak Punia overcame China's Zushen Lin 6-3 on points to advance to the semifinals.

Ravi Kumar will take on Nurislam Sanayev of Kazakhstan in the last-four, while Punia will be up against David Morris Taylor of the USA.

Earlier, Ravi Kumar had won his opening-round bout by technical superiority against Colombia's Oscar Tigreros to secure a quarterfinal spot. Competing in the Round-of-16 bout against the Colombian wrestler, the 23-year-old Ravi Kumar, who is making his Olympic debut, showed no nerves as he dominated the bout to win by technical superiority (13-2).

Ravi Kumar landed attack after attack and went 13-2 up, winning the bout by technical superiority with minutes to spare. In wrestling, building up a 10-point lead over the opponent results in a victory by technical superiority.

India's 86kg freestyle wrestler Deepak Punia showed no signs of the niggle that had forced him to pull out of the Poland Open Ranking Series in Warsaw in June, as he defeated Nigeria's Ekerekeme Agiomor on technical superiority to secure a quarterfinal berth.

He got his Olympic campaign to a fine start as he was in control from the start of the bout and hardly ever allowed his Nigerian opponent any room to maneuver his moves, finally winning with a 12-1 on technical superiority.

Punia, who had also suffered an elbow injury just before the Games, was slow at the start but came into his own as the bout progressed, inflicting takedowns at regular intervals to earn points.

The Indian wrestler eased into a 4-1 lead at the break and extended his lead comfortably in the second period.

Punia, the silver medallist from the 2019 world wrestling championships, then set up a clash with China's Lin Zushen in the quarterfinals and defeated him 6-3.
