10 Reasons Why You Are Attractive

10 Reasons Why You Are Attractive

Before you read any further, will you do me a quick favor? Find a mirror, take a look at yourself, and pay attention to the thoughts and feelings that run through your head. Don’t feel silly. It’s okay. And I’ll still be here when you get back (promise). 

Done? Let’s continue. How did that feel? Did your brain think positive thoughts like, “I look super cute today!” or did you put yourself down because you hate your thighs, hips, arms, or (insert body part here)? If I had to guess, I imagine most of you put yourselves down (and you need to stop doing that). Have you ever had a friend who was so skinny that a high gust of wind could carry her away, yet she never stopped talking about how “fat” she was. She felt this way because the mirror is a dirty liar. What you see in your reflection has a lot more to do with how you perceive yourself than how others perceive you. We are all guilty of beating ourselves up, so to encourage a healthy dose of self-love, I made a list of 10 reasons why you are attractive (yes, I’m talking to you!). 

1. You care.

You can’t put a price tag on genuine care and concern. Imagine all of the lives you have touched by the simple act of caring. There are few things more attractive than compassion.

2. You have strength of character.

No matter what life throws at you, you keep moving forward. No matter how many times you fall down, you keep getting back up. No matter how many struggles you face, you stand firm. Your strength to keep on living and stay true to yourself speaks highly of your character.

3. Your hair is gorgeous (and fun to play with).

Blonde, black, brown, red, yellow, pink, or polka-dotted? Doesn’t matter. Long and luxurious, suave and styled, short and sweet, spiked like a punk? All good. Maybe you don’t even have hair, and that’s okay too, because then your head will be all soft and smooth!

4. Your smile makes me smile.

There is nothing more attractive than a genuine smile. Show your pearly whites because happiness is contagious.

5. Mmmmm, brains…

sapiosexual (n.): a personal sexually attracted to intelligence or the human mind

Your wit tickles my brain’s fancy. Your unquenchable thirst for knowledge is uber attractive.

6. You are fascinated with the world.

Curiosity about the world and everything in it is a super attractive trait. The ceaseless asking of the question “Why?” means you will never run out of things to learn about, read about, and talk about.

7. Giggle, giggle, giggle, snort!

Laughing is one of the best calorie-burning activities ever. Keep sharing giggles with everyone you come across because there is already enough darkness in the world. Be a source of light instead.

8. R-E-S-P-E-C-T

Debating about things like politics and religion can grow our perspective and help us see where other people are coming from. But your ability to treat people equally no matter how different from you they may be is an attractive quality that shows you are worthy of respect.

9. You give thanks.

Your gratefulness shows that you appreciate the people who help you and the blessings in your life. If we can’t be thankful for what we do have, what makes us think obtaining what we don’t have will make us feel any better? Your thankfulness is incredibly attractive.

10. You are who you are.

There is nothing more attractive than a person who is 100% comfortable in his or her skin. Love your body. Be unapologetic about who you are. Walk with confidence. Hug yourself because you are beautiful. Love yourself because you are wonderful. Smile because you deserve it.

I hope you enjoyed this list of 10 reasons why you are attractive and I would be thrilled if you would leave a comment with something you love about yourself. That could be a favorite feature of your body, a personality trait you think is neat, or a character strength that helps you succeed. Let’s hear it!

7 Powerful Questions To Find Out What You Want To Do With Your Life

7 Powerful Questions To Find Out What You Want To Do With Your Life

What do I want to do with my life? It’s a question all of us think about at one point or another.

For some, the answer comes easily. For others, it takes a lifetime to figure out.

It’s easy to just go through the motions and continue to do what’s comfortable and familiar. But for those of you who seek fulfillment, who want to do more, these questions will help you paint a clearer picture of what you want to do with your life.

1. What are the things I’m most passionate about?

The first step to living a more fulfilling life is to think about the things that you’re passionate about.

What do you love? What fulfills you? What “work” do you do that doesn’t feel like work? Maybe you enjoy writing, maybe you love working with animals or maybe you have a knack for photography.

The point is, figure out what you love doing, then do more of it.

2. What are my greatest accomplishments in life so far?

Think about your past experiences and the things in your life you’re most proud of.

How did those accomplishments make you feel? Pretty darn good, right? So why not try and emulate those experiences and feelings?

If you ran a marathon once and loved the feeling you had afterwards, start training for another one. If your child grew up to be a star athlete or musician because of your teachings, then be a coach or mentor for other kids.

Continue to do the things that have been most fulfilling for you.

3. If my life had absolutely no limits, what would I choose to have and what would I choose to do?

Here’s a cool exercise: Think about what you would do if you had no limits.

If you had all the money and time in the world, where would you go? What would you do? Who would you spend time with?

These answers can help you figure out what you want to do with your life. It doesn’t mean you need millions of dollars to be happy though.

What it does mean is answering these questions will help you set goals to reach certain milestones and create a path toward happiness and fulfillment. Which leads to our next question …

4. What are my goals in life?

Goals are a necessary component to set you up for a happy future. So answer these questions:

Once you figure out the answers to each of these, you’ll have a much better idea of what you should do with your life.

5. Whom do I admire most in the world?

Following the path of successful people can set you up for success.

Think about the people you respect and admire most. What are their best qualities? Why do you respect them? What can you learn from them?

You’re the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.[1] So don’t waste your time with people who hold you back from achieving your dreams.

Spend more time with happy, successful, optimistic people and you’ll become one of them.

6. What do I not like to do?

An important part of figuring out what you want to do with your life is honestly assessing what you don’t want to do.

What are the things you despise? What bugs you the most about your current job?

Maybe you hate meetings even though you sit through 6 hours of them every day. If that’s the case, find a job where you can work more independently.

The point is, if you want something to change in your life, you need to take action. Which leads to our final question …

7. How hard am I willing to work to get what I want?

Great accomplishments never come easy. If you want to do great things with your life, you’re going to have to make a great effort. That will probably mean putting in more hours the average person, getting outside your comfort zone and learning as much as you can to achieve as much as you can.

But here’s the cool part: it’s often the journey that is the most fulfilling part. It’s during these seemingly small, insignificant moments that you’ll often find that “aha” moments that helps you answer the question,

“What do I want to do with my life?”

So take the first step toward improving your life. You won’t regret it.
