Being attractive and having a personality to carry it, is very much part of the Islamic code as Prophet Muhammad PBUH said, “Allah is beautiful and loves beauty” [Related by Muslim #131]. Also, research says good-looking people have a bigger social circle and are promoted more rapidly, at work. Why not spend a few minutes every day on a routine that makes you more handsome and more likable? These ten tried and tested tips will give you that extra edge in the society that is genetically predisposed to prefer charming people.
1. Exercise For 30 Minutes
Exercise for 30 minutes every day. This could be a cardio run or reps of 50 pushups, 50 sit-ups, 50 crunches or a 30 lap swim. Nothing says ‘handsome’ better than a puffed up chest, well-developed shoulders and tight abdomen. People will notice — I guarantee you that.
2. Be Clean And Neat
Lose the beard and get a fresh crew cut. Nothing says ‘clean & neat’ better than seeing a freshly cropped head, a shaved face and divine cologne.
3. Avoid Jeans
Wear a well-fitted shirt, pants, and boots, not jeans. Jeans are for teenagers and billionaires like Steve Jobs. If your waist is size 33, then get that size, not one centimeter more.
4. Keep Smiling
Smile and pay attention to people you meet. The people around us judge our personality through our body language, and not the words we utter. So, stand up straight, look people in the eye and genuinely be interested in the people you meet.
5. Talk Wisely
Talk about issues of peoples interest, and don’t drone on about yourself. Avoid politics, religion, the guy’s car or the lady’s kids — if you don’t have good things to say.
6. Follow Your Passion
Follow your passion and work hard at it. The passion doesn’t have to be earth-shattering. Something as simple as hiking would do. Pursue it and you wouldn’t have to work a single day in your life, the money will come. Passionate people are magnetic and interesting, the healthy kind of charming.
7. Be Yourself
Just be your unique self. Just don’t be a j*rk around people, people notice a jack*ss from a mile away.
8. Read. Read. Read
“Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous” says the Quran [al-‘Alaq 96:1-3]. Read every day and you will discover worlds that you never knew existed. The daily grinds and challenges will seem trivial. So, “Read! In the name of thy lord” and people will elevate you in status.
9. Follow This Golden Rule
Golden Rule says, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” And you’d have the world conspiring to prop you up.
Relax; the world’s injustice is not your making.
Do this for 30 days and I guarantee a popular, confident, charming, handsome you that will get attention wherever you go. Good Luck! Change is on its way.
