This the power of charisma!
When you improve your charisma and charm you’ll be able to draw people to you. You’ll have people WANT to be around you more.
This is a powerful skill you should learn that will help you out immensely. I’m going to show you 4 simple ways you can become more charismatic right now.
How to Be Charismatic and Charming
#1 – Smile More!
You got to start smiling more. It’s going to help you come across as more positive, happy, and genuine.
Try this out:
Go find somebody, look at them and just smile. You’ll notice that a bunch of them smile back. It’s the weirdest thing ever.
There’s even been studies that have proven smiling releases good chemicals inside of you. It’s going to lift up your mood and make everyone around you feel better.
#2 – Use Strong Eye Contact
Eye contact is something a lot of people struggle with.
You need to start looking people directly in the eye when you talk to them. Not only does it make people trust you, it also helps you come across as more confident.
Nervous and insecure people do not make direct eye contact. Confident people do.
And don’t worry…
If you’re not used to giving direct eye contact it’s going to feel extremely uncomfortable at first. I remember when I first started practicing my own eye contact, I couldn’t hold eye contact with anybody for more than five seconds before looking away.
Here’s an easy way to practice eye contact – Pretend it’s a game.
Make it a goal to look at everyone you talk too directly in the eye until it’s your turn to talk back. You’re going to feel the tension, you’re going to feel extremely awkward inside, but just do it. Fight that feeling.
You’ll be surprised at the results 🙂
#3 – Show Genuine Interest in People
A trait of charismatic people is they radiate an aura of warmth around them. They make the person they’re talking too feel like they’re the most important thing in the world. Nothing else matters. There are no distractions.
How do you do this?
Ask questions. Dive deeper on things they say. Be empathetic. Make comments related to whatever it is you’re talking about.
The main thing to keep in mind is to try to give a fuck!
#4 – Be Self-Amused
Don’t take yourself too seriously. Be self-amused.
As the quote goes, “The world is your oyster.” Walk around like everything is amazing, fun, and positive. It’s just good vibes wherever you go.
An easy way you can become more self-amused to is lower the bar of what you find funny. Find EVERYTHING around you funny! (At the same time don’t take it to the extreme where you become kind of inauthentic. If somebody says a joke that you don’t find funny, don’t laugh at it. If it doesn’t align with your values, don’t laugh at it.)
Be somebody that is always smiling, always positive, always laughing, and people are going to naturally want to be around you more.
You’re going to become more of a value giver instead of a value taker. It’s going to have a huge, huge, huge effect on not only your charisma, but on your charm.
And that’s it!
Those are the 4 things you need to start practicing to become more charismatic in your life. It’s going to take some time to get used too, but in no time you’ll see the night-and-day difference in your life.
