I love the word Charisma. Being Charismatic. It sounds so intriguing, sexy, allluring and of high quality. For as long as I can remember, I have given attention to what being charismatic means and what it takes to cultivate, even when it comes to my body language.
I wanted to develop more of this beautiful and unique art of being into my own style, existence and even body language. Here is some of what I have discovered.
Charisma – may be best defined as your ability to pick up on other people's emotions as well as express your own. And that comes down to how you communicate and carry yourself, all with an eloquent and self assured fashion.
I think to be Charismatic also means to be Confident. But before you can be confident about communicating and expressing yourself eloquently to others or be tuned into their emotions, you need to be confident in just showing up in the first place. Showing up in the room, or lighting up the room with your presence, as this carrys us toward charismatically engaging one-on-one.
Oftentimes, you show-up in your life worn-out and washed-up. This is reflected in your posture, stance, facial expressions and even the glimmer…or dullness of your eye contact.
You didn't get worn-out or washed-up looking overnight. It likely took years of practice to get this way and likely started when quite young, hiding behind someone or fearfu. of something unknown. Slumping over with your head down hoping to be unseen. Perhaps this posture took on a life of it's own due to over-ruling parents or bullying school mates. This posture may have stuck with you and now as an adult you are looking beaten down and certainly not lighting up the room with your presence or charisma.
It's time to change all this and it's time to empower your life. You were not born beaten and you are not living out who you really are.
Cultivating charisma can start right here, right now….with your posture.
Starting today, you can stand, sit and walk with your head held high and take on the role of an alluring and charismatic person. This is your charimatic body language. As you practice this new body alignment, you begin to cultivate more confidence, enjoy seeing your real self in the mirror and begin making eye contact with others. It's important to avoid reverting to the poor posture when others start commenting on your new stance. The awkward feeling of them pointing this out will pass, as it will soon become the real you and move you itoward lighting up a room with beautiful presence and new found charisma!
Ultimately, you must become confident enough to drop the pose of unimportance for good! Feel the empowerment of confidence and yes, even some intriguing and alluring charisma!
