How to be Beautiful Without Being Good Looking

Be careful how you define beauty—in yourself and your potential partner. Our culture teaches us to place great importance on appearance, and there is nothing wrong with taking care of yourself and attending to your looks. But remember to spend as much time developing attractive qualities that come from your heart and soul.

Here are four ways to get started:

Love yourself.
Take inventory of all the intangible things you have to offer in a relationship. Chances are, you’ll see there’s a lot to love about you. Go ahead, admit it. Few things are as magnetically attractive as genuine self-assurance and quiet confidence. Simply put, we appreciate people who appreciate themselves.

Laugh often.
Victor Borge once said, “Laughter is the shortest distance between two people.” Here’s why: It throws open all the shutters and windows to your heart and lets your inner light shine. Give it a try—and notice how people are drawn to the warmth.

Live your life with gusto.
Passion and purpose in life are contagious qualities. Get about doing what you love, and you will attract others who’ll love you for it.

Let grace and kindness flow out of you.
The most beautiful people in the world have an inner warmth and generous spirit that spills onto those around them. We can’t resist drawing near to someone who is consistently gentle, compassionate, and accepting. These straight-from-the-heart qualities more than compensate for any physical shortcomings.

If nature gave you a body that will never appear on a magazine cover, don’t despair. You can be as beautiful as you want on the inside by cultivating qualities that far outshine external attractiveness. After all, that’s what any partner worth having is really looking for.
