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.

Diwali is known for gifting and jewellery tops the list, with the focus on buying gold and diamonds. ORRA jewellery, a trusted diamond jewellery brand is gearing up for the festive and bridal season. As they open their 50th store in the country, IANSlife caught up with Dipu Mehta, Managing Director, ORRA, to find out how the company plans to ramp up its now 50 company-owned and operated stores, expanding its retail presence in Tier-1 and 2 cities and target the millennial segment.

Read Excerpts:

Q: The brand is expanding in tier-2 and tier-3 cities, is brick and mortar the way forward to create a presence in this segment?

A: ORRA currently is expanding in metros plus tier-2 cities. But we aren't opening stores in any new markets. We are only opening in markets where we are already present. We are increasing the number of stores within cities as the demand for jewellery buying has also increased. Currently, we are present in 25 cities with 50 stores, and by the end of the month, we would be launching another seven stores.
Also with a category like jewellery, it is important to have brick and mortar stores as the customers like to see and hold higher value jewellery before purchasing. Jewellery buying is an important decision to the customers and having a store gives them that assurance.

Sports betting has become increasingly popular among the youth in recent times

Sports betting has been around for centuries for the audience to not only watch the sport but to get more deeply involved in the match. It is a fun and often profitable activity for the viewer to win some extra fortune or simply get some extra sweat while watching the game. At first glance, sports betting may look like it's pure luck, but when you indulge deeper into the activity you realize it is more of a calculative and research activity than just pure luck. We must note that yes, luck does play a certain role to some extend but a win is not completely dependent on luck, if you're putting your bets on a certain team you have to make sure to do some research about the players on the team, history of wins and losses of the team and compare the probability of winning and then place bets.

Even though sports betting has existed since the ancient era, it was not until recently that it became increasingly popular among the youth. This happened due to the legalization of the activity and the rise of online sports betting.
