A few years ago I was watching a late night t.v. show and P. Diddy (or whatever he calls himself now) was a guest. The host was Conan O' Brien. During the interview, Conan asked what it took to get an invitation to one of P. Diddy's famous white parties. These parties are usually very popular and only the coolest of the cool get invited. This brings me to my tip for today:
MINGLE TIP #64: BE POSITIVE (THE P. DIDDY RULE)
P. Diddy's answer to Conan's question may surprise you. He said that the most important thing that will get a person an invitation to his great parties was simple--positive energy. I thought that was an extremely cool answer. It made an impression on me, to the point that I remember it years later.
I think this is great advice for all kinds of social situations. If you want more people to like you, maybe you should consider how positive (or not positive) you generally are around people. Want to be the life of the party? What to be more popular with the opposite sex? Positive energy is the answer.
Don't get me wrong--I'm not supporting being positive in a fake way. Being a sugar blower is high on my list of "no-nos." What I am talking about is focusing on your blessings and not getting caught up in every little thing that is wrong in your life.
