Ever been in awe of a guy who oozes charm — you can't keep eyes off of him?

Charisma seems like a magical and unquantifiable trait that's hard to define, but in fact it's very simple to measure what charisma is. Simply, charisma is what happens when you believe passionately in what you're saying.

When you can do this, you will find that your body language reflects what you're saying, that your voice takes on a stronger tone and that you manage to bring people in and get them behind you as you talk.

Make sure that you really believe what you're saying and speak from the heart and no one will be able to stand in your way.

Although charisma isn’t something that can be seen with the naked eye, it is something that has a visible effect on the people who encounter it. People sense it and naturally react in a positive way to it.

Charismatic men have an almost “unreal” ability to light up a room simply by being in it. People suddenly pay attention and are keenly interested to watch him, listen to him and get involved in whatever he seems to be interested in. When a charismatic man interacts with another person, you will almost always see him smiling and showing excited interest in him right away.

One of the golden rules of being charismatic is to focus more on making others feel good about themselves and less on trying to make them feel good about you. Stop trying to look good and start making people feel good.

It’s not about you, it’s about them and how they feel when around you.
