Absolutely right, these are the most desirable traits in a person.

When it comes to grooming yourself it helps to include another aspect that can add to your personality quotient –

Be up-to-date with current affairs. This helps in making conversation and leaving a mark on others. A well-informed person can fit into any group and be able to hold his own. It is important to be in touch with what is happening around the world, in politics, sports, weather and general.

I have always felt that reading enhances the personality because you learn so much from it.

Also, having a few anecdotes up your sleeve is also a good way to get and keep the attention.

Practice being witty, people like funny people, who are sharp and funny.

I sincerely thank Ms. Juana and Mr. Baishya for reading the article. I have tried to give some simple tips to improve our personality. These tips are required to be practised consciously till these become habits. The tips given by Ms. Juana are very relevant. A witty person who is aware of the events happening around him/her is confident, and this confidence becomes a positive aspect of his/her personality.

At the same time, I must state that grooming is a long-time process and development of personality in a desired manner can’t be achieved within a short time.

Nice article by the author. I'd like to add a few tips as well-
1. Have a sense of humour- One of the most attractive traits of anyone's personality is sense of humour. Everyone likes a person who is always laughing and is making a constant effort to make other's smile as well. Such person welcomed everywhere. Also, one should learn to take jokes on himself in a sporty spirit and shouldn't get offended by other people's jokes.
2. Understand others- Many times it happens that we meet someone who is different than us and have a different sense of humour. If we don't have understanding of that person's thoughts, we might take his jokes seriously and get offended. This must be avoided; firstly take some time to understand a person, it will help in avoiding conflicts. No one likes a person who is involved in quarrels or fights.
3. Groom yourself- Here grooming refers to having a nice hair cut, proper shave, wearing good clothes and all physical aspects. No matter what people say, first impression always matters and looking good is the best way to do it.

The article mentions very good points as how you can groom your personality. Actually an individual can tell you how you get motivated but then you have to motivate yourself. This Shiva Khera mentions in his book “You Can Win”.

Apart from this before going further have a positive self esteem .This is basically used to build confidence. In the future if you join any job from teaching, management or in the corporate sector you need to be good speaker, listener and know how to appreciate people and praise them if they have done something good. This will give the other person motivation.
