Life hacks that Successful People Use

Life hacks that Successful People Often Use

The following psychological hacks will help you to be more successful at school, at work, in social situations and in life in general. These psychology hacks really work, and have been continuously practiced by successful people around the world. These clever little tricks will allow you to gain important advantages and more control over potential outcomes in various areas of your day-to-day life.
  • When you first meet people, try to notice their eye color while also smiling at them. It might be because you look for a second or two longer, but all I can tell you is that people really respond to it.
  • If you ask someone a question and they only partially answer just wait. If you stay silent and keep eye contact they will usually continue talking.
  • If you ask someone to do you a small favor, cognitive dissonance will make them believe that because they did that favor, they must like you.
  • Foot-in-the-door phenomenon. People are more likely to agree to do a task for you if you ask them to do something simpler first. (Gradual commitment makes people think you like them.)
  • Alternatively, you ask them to do an unreasonable task and they’ll say no. So then you should ask for a more reasonable task and they will be more likely to agree.
  • People will remember not what you said, but how you made them feel.
  • If you get yourself to be really happy and excited to see other people, they will react the same to you. It doesn’t always happen the first time, but it will definitely happen next time.
  • If you have a warm hand when you shake somebody’s hand, you immediately become a more desirable person to get along with.
  • The key to confidence is walking into a room and assume that everyone already likes you.
  • If you make the biggest smile you can, you will automatically feel happier.
  • People are extraordinarily aware of their sense of touch. If someone 'accidentally’ rests their knee on yours, they may not act like they realize it, but they definitely know that it's there.
  • Use S.M.A.R.T.N.E.S.S. to solve complex problems: You can achieve your full mental potential with this nine-step brain-boosting method: 1) Be Smart. 2) Use your Mind. 3) Pay Attention. 4) Really focus. 5) Try harder. 6) KNow what to do. 7) Exceed expectations. 8) Succeed. 9) Be Successful. Just remember the acronym S.M.A.R.T.N.E.S.S. and you can accomplish anything.
  • Refer to people you’ve just met by their name. People loving being referred to by their name and it will establish a sense of trust and friendship right away.
  • While riding a city bus, pull the string to assert your dominance over the driver: It’s very common to feel nervous in social situations on buses, and the driver might try to take advantage of you by not stopping when you want to get off the bus. By pulling the string, you can turn an enemy into a friend and make the bus driver stop whenever you want. This is just using innate human behavior to your advantage!
  • False attribution of arousal. When you take somebody out on a first date, take them somewhere exciting that will get their heart beating such as a roller coaster or horror film. This gets their adrenaline up. It makes them think they enjoy spending time with you rather than the activity.
  • Fake it till you make it; confidence is more important than knowledge.
  • Leftovers aren’t wasteful. (All too often, we eat what we don’t need (or even want) in the name of “not wasting it.” But this type of food psychology is counter-productive, especially when it comes to weight loss. Whether you throw it in the trash or down your throat, this unwanted food isn’t helping anyone. In fact, in the latter case, it’s only causing you to gain weight.)
  • If you pretend to be something for long enough, you will eventually become it.
  • People have a certain image of themselves and will fight tooth and nail to cling to it. Use this information wisely. You can make people dislike you by attacking their self-image.
