Build Trust and Be Consistent

You can’t achieve this unless you build trust with others. Your actions have to be consistent so that they know you are sincere about wanting to help them achieve something. You can not do things for people or become successful until they know that you can help them.

Practice Being Present

You must be in the present. The past or the future is just a part of the present. It’s easy to mix up the past and the future in our heads. When you practice being in the present, you will be able to use your words to influence others and get what you want.

Always Demonstrate Respect and Dignity

Respect and dignity mean that you are respectable in how you conduct yourself. You don’t need to dress nicely, speak politely, or even wear a suit. But when you do these things, you make others feel respected and dignified. If you can do that, you will find that others are willing to be more open to you.

Show Appreciation

Learn to show appreciation to others. You never know what kind of relationship you might develop with someone. And there are always going to be some people who will rise above the others and give you what you deserve. Don’t take this for granted. Never forget that there are so many ways to make others feel appreciated.

Learn To Delegate

As a manager or an employee, you may not have the chance to do everything on your own. That’s why you should learn to delegate. Delegate some of the tasks that you are not good at. Doing this will make you more effective and efficient.

Be a Good Listener

It is considered one of the best qualities to possess. This is especially true if you are trying to influence people. You can learn how to listen effectively by attending seminars or workshops. This is a great way to widen your network of acquaintances.

Practice Self-Confidence

You must be confident in yourself. Confidence will make you more believable. People tend to believe the ones who are real experts in their respective fields. So, if you want to succeed in life, you have to learn how to be confident in everything you do.
