Charisma

by Nikki Owen

Introduction

Charisma is a powerful presence that enables the individual who possesses it to exert high levels of impact and influence. Ultimately, this leverages the odds of you achieving your desired outcome and accelerates career progression and achievement. You know when you have it, because people notice you; they pay attention to what you say, and gravitate towards you.

Charismatic people find it easy to attract and influence others, a vital component in determining your level of success as a manager. Charisma is that special quality that can set you apart from your peers, enabling you to create a strong personal impact with your verbal and non-verbal communication.

Everyone has the potential to become charismatic, because it is a natural state that some individuals are able to access more frequently than others. When a person is feeling comfortable, confident and passionate about what they are doing, they begin to radiate an aura of energy that captivates the attention of people around them. Once you have tapped into your own charisma resource, you activate its potential to grow and expand.

Charisma is an authentic power that captures the hearts and minds of others.

There is another exciting spin-off to possessing charisma: you’ll notice that with the expansion of your personal presence you’ll start to access your charismatic potential with greater ease.

Charisma breeds charisma. This has a foundation of scientific proof from many physicist sources, including Schwartz’s creative experiments, Ghosh’s research and Zeilinger’s astonishing discoveries. They found that the energy of thought has the same effect as the energy of movement outside the thinker’s own body. Thoughts can become physical manifestations or, to put it another way, thoughts become things. If we feel confident and charismatic or if we act as if we are highly charismatic, the intention of these thoughts will manifest more feelings of confidence and charisma.
