The truth is that everyone is bored, and devotes himself to cultivating habits
Boring people and interesting people…they both exist and it really sucks when you run into the former and have to hang…
That being said it is interesting to note there are a few telltale characteristics that define the two. Here are some observations…
Interesting people are well-informed.
Being perceived as interesting revolves around holding conversations. The more that you have to talk about, the better. This of course does not mean that you ought to be starting a conversation with someone and running through a handful of topics one after another, but the more knowledgeable you are of different things, the better the chances are that you and your conversation partner will have something to talk about. Be up-to-date on the news and on the most popular pop culture.
Boring people stay in one place; interesting people like to explore.
It’s one thing to be perceived as being boring and it’s another to actually be boring. This goes back to leaving your comfort zone. If you want to be interesting, then you need to be interested in doing things. You need to explore the world, both around you and the world that requires a 16-hour flight. Go out and explore.
Interesting people have a hunger for life; boring people are content with broccoli
Variety, variety, variety — life has such a smorgasbord to offer us, that sticking to that which you know is, well, boring. Stop eating the same food, stop hanging out with the same people at the same places. Doing the same boring things guarantee a boring life because it avoids change.
Change makes for an exciting life.
If you want an interesting, exciting life, then embrace change. It is the fear of change that causes stagnancy and that causes people with much potential to be labeled as boring people. If you do not learn to enjoy change then you will not only lack success, you will lack joy in your life.
Interesting people are driven people. Boring people are push-overs.
Figure out what it is that you want and then plan a way to get it. Letting others decide your destiny, being complacent and accepting whatever leftovers others throw you is pathetic and boring. Do not let people push you around; stand your ground!
Interesting people are dreamers. Boring people are posers.
If you don’t dream, then you can’t possibly make your dreams a reality. Our minds can be our most interesting playground as long as we spend enough time focusing on that which presents itself among the swing sets and sandboxes. Picture what you want and what you want to do in your future. Imagine your life the way you wish you could live it and focus on it every waking moment of your life. Then work on making your dreams your reality.
YOU CAN LEAD AN INTERESTING LIFE!
More importantly than anything else is truly and completely wanting to live an interesting and exciting life. You must want to do things you are not comfortable doing. You must want to experience new experiences and you must want to get a fuller, more in-depth understanding of the way other people see the world. You must want to have an open mind. The world is an exciting place, so get excited!
Or hey…if you’re good with the boring ok…..just please don’t complain about it to the rest of us…
