It is a human trait to always be accepted by our peers and to impress everyone we meet along the way. Making a lasting impression may not be as easy as you would think it is, especially for someone who is not naturally outspoken. If you would want to impress someone in any situation, the trick is to understand the right maneuvers to doing so. With these ways to impress everyone in any situation, you can be the heart of a party, and be everyone’s favorite at the office as well.
Focus When Others Take Things Easy
There are times when a group of folks is laid back and relaxing, while the one you notice is the one who stand out. Take notice when people around you are getting relaxed, since that is your cue to jump up and be proactive. Stand up and hit the dance floor when everyone is just sitting down and enjoying their drink, for that’s when the focus of other people shifts to you. People are impressed by seeing the added energy that you bring in the crowd, and that is something which leaves quite an impression.
Promise Less And Deliver More
Whether it is about completing 20 pages of the accounting file this weekend, or paying your friend back the money you owe him in 2 months, always promise less than you can achieve. Tell your boss that you will try your best to finish the 10 pages, and end up doing 15 of them. At first, it may lead to a lowered expectation of your boss from you, but when you deliver more than they expected, it ill believe more in your reliability. Being reliable is always an important factor in impressing someone, so always over deliver but keep your promises low.
Let Your Actions Speak Louder
“Actions speak louder than words” may seem like a total cliche, but when it comes to real life situations, actions do leave a resonating impression compared to hollow words. As an example, if the discussion is over waking up early in the morning and going for a walk, you would appear more impressionable if you yourself wake up early in the morning and go for a walk every day. If you say things just for the sake of saying them, people are eventually going to consider you as a speaker rather than a doer.
