There’s a reason why everybody loves Barack Obama. And no, that’s not because he’s the president of the United States. That bit came after. Everybody loves Barack Obama the same reason everybody loves Ellen DeGeneres, George Clooney and half of the A-list celebrities out there. And that’s because he knows how to be charismatic. With just a smile and a wave, he has the entire world captivated.
You, too, can learn how to be charismatic like Mr. President. Just follow these steps and you’ll soon be on your way to wooing your own public.
Tip # 1 On How To Be Charismatic: Perfect Your Smile.
Smiling is one of the basic steps of charisma. Without a good smile, you’ll have a tough time getting people to warm up to you. Being charismatic means looking approachable. I suggest practicing different smiles in front of the mirror to see which one looks best on you.
As you smile, think about different situations. For example, you might want to think about the time your daughter first learned how to walk and see how your smile looks like then. Or you could think about how you won a contest and see how confident your smile looks in the mirror. The best smile, I think, is the kind of smile that makes people feel like they’re special.
Tip # 2 On How To Be Charismatic: Straighten Your Posture.
Not a lot of people realize how bad their posture really is. It’s different when you’re looking at yourself consciously in a mirror and when you’re standing among the crowd in a subway station.
Having good posture gives other people the impression that you’re confident and that you’re independent. They then become drawn to you like flies to a moth. The way you carry yourself can be more attractive than your actual physical appearance.
Haven’t you ever seen an average Joe or plain Jane who catches attention simply by walking inside a café or restaurant? I tell you. It’s in the way they carry themselves with confidence that exudes charisma like nothing else.
Tip # 3 On How To Be Charismatic: Be Genuine.
There are those who think that to be charismatic, you have to act the part. That’s not entirely true. Not being yourself might even lead people to doubt what your inner motives might be.
When you think about Barack Obama and other charismatic celebrities out there, you can’t help but be drawn to how genuine they seem to be. They appear to be very true to themselves and treat other people the way they want to be treated.
Learning how to be charismatic is simple. There is no need for theatrics and all sorts of underhanded schemes. All it takes is to look inside yourself and get in touch with all the nice and wonderful aspects of you.
