You don't have to be the funniest, best looking, or most exciting person in the room. Those qualities are great, but they will take you only so far. Take pains to show that you are considerate and kind. Listen with curiosity and without judgment. Deliver on your promises. Show that you are worthy of trust. When you actively practice these, then all your other strengths will also have room to shine.
