8 Ways to Brand Yourself as a Positive Person

Self confidence is an important key to your career success. I always tell my career mentoring members that there are three keys to unshakeable self confidence: an optimistic attitude, surrounding yourself with positive people and facing your fears and acting.

In this post, I’d like to focus on the best way to surround yourself with positive people – and that’s becoming a positive person yourself.

Here are my best rules for branding yourself as a positive person…

  • Be friendly and enthusiastic.
  • Make sure that people feel safe around you – don’t gossip.
  • Resolve disagreements in a respectful manner – one that enhances, not detracts, from your relationships.
  • Listen. Make sure the other person knows that you understand his or her point of view.
  • Be clear, direct and honest in your communication.
  • Listen the hardest when you disagree with what someone else is saying. You’ll probably learn something, and the other person will appreciate your willingness to listen to his or her point of view.
  • Practice empathy. Put yourself in others’ shoes. Do you best to figure out their frame of reference.
  • Bring quiet people into the conversation. Ask for their thoughts and opinions.

If you follow these eight tips you’ll brand yourself as a positive person. This will make it easier to find and spend time with other positive people. Positive people like being around other positive people.
