Everyone wants to be the coolest guy in the room!

Think about it; you’d want to be that guy who moves with confidence, communicates clearly with everyone, and gets the admiration of all eyes.

Being cool is much easier than you think — and you don’t have to fake it!

Here are three tips to help you get started.

  1. Have a strong presence.

It all starts by having a strong presence! Stand and walk straight, carry yourself with the right posture, and give out the right body language.

Your posture reflects how powerful and dominant you are. Therefore, maintain a great one and command the attention you deserve.

2. Be yourself.

Here’s the thing; people know when you are faking it. So, don’t try too hard.

Why do folks across the globe like Will Smith?

Well, it’s because he is himself — Will Smith! He’s not trying to be James Bond or other popular movie icon.

Be the best version of yourself and don’t force it!

3. Wear the right clothes.

People make judgment based on your appearance.

Yes, it’s not fair, but that’s how the world is. To make the most out of it, you’ve got to wear the right fitting clothes at all times.

Are your shades stylish? Are you putting on fitting jackets? And do your jeans fit well?

4. You need the right language.

Speak appropriate language. Know your surrounding. Don’t the one blurting out profanity in a gathering everyone else is reserving such language for happy hour moments. Asking for excuse like “pardon my language,” just doesn’t cut it. Use the right language for the occasion.

And talking about speaking the right language, don’t show up to a place and start making up big words. For instance, if you go …”I was flabbergasted,”instead of simply saying “I was surprised,” you can get some eyes rolling at you especially if you aren’t in the right crowd for such level of words.

If this is not how you normally speak, it’s going to show, and you’ll be the funniest person in the room. Stay in your skin. You are already cool, so be you.

You’ve got to master the art of making the right impressions — and you should start by wearing the right clothes.
