They’re things you can actually do.

The desire to be attractive to others is inherent in us all.

Since the early days of mankind, humans have sought to be part of a group. We’ve always wanted to feel accepted and protected.

Today, this desire still drives men and women into spending so much money to make themselves look good and attractive.

In 2018, for example, Americans spent $16.5 billion on cosmetic surgery alone to fix noses, reshape faces lifted, or liposuction.

Also, so much money gets spent on skincare and makeup, gym memberships, shaving products, hair maintenance, and supplements.

However, being attractive isn’t just about looks and physical features. Someone might look like Bella Hadid, and still have a horrible attitude.

That’s why attractiveness isn’t judged solely on how a person looks.

People measure how attractive you are by looking at a range of different factors, most of which have to do with your personality and behaviors.

Embracing Your Authentic Self

Attractive people have one thing in common: they’re real, comfortable in their skin, and always express their most authentic selves.

This is what it means to be yourself.

When you’re not afraid to be who you really are in spirit, soul, and body, and you can show up without minding how people choose to see you, then you can build the genuine trust and connections that make it harder for people to resist you.

The majority of people today are afraid to be real. People are so bent on bent on re-making themselves into who they think they should be to meet society’s standards.

But you don’t need to be perfect to be attractive; you just need to be you. That’s why you must move past society’s nudge to fit in and embrace your quirks, weirdness, and imperfections.

You have to have the ability to accept yourself as different and unique and to express your natural personality no matter how unconventional.
