Have you ever met someone who had that extra “something” that you couldn’t put your finger on? It is that “something” that separated them from the crowd. That “something” can be defined as charm, social grace, poise, polish, charisma, confidence. How do you get that “something”? No, you cannot fake it until you make it. That is a temporary solution. You have to attain that competitive edge, learn it and work it into your life every day. Often times it is true; you don’t know what you don’t know, right? How you interact with others and in certain situations directly effects how you feel about yourself. If you do not know the proper protocols and etiquette, then your confidence and self-esteem is going to be lower than someone who does. You will not have the “competitive edge” that everyone today seeks. This will affect many aspects of your life from getting that job over someone else, getting that date, making friends, pursuing your dreams, your level of ambition, interacting with co-workers, doing your best and truly living your best life. Rather than being a part of the crowd, stand out in the crowd.
