How to Live a Charmed Life

Ever wonder why some people get away with it, are always listened to and get the benefit of a doubt? It’s not because they are beautiful, brilliant or billionaires. They are simply charming! They have a warm, easy smile, listen attentively to every word you say and make you feel unique and vital in their world. They repeat your name during a conversation and look into your eyes adoringly.

It’s time to learn how to become charming which means to rediscover your family, friends and colleagues with fresh interest. Get involved in their world. This time it’s not initially about you; however, if you do this right, it will ultimately be about you. Improve your communication style and take the stress out of it because you don’t have to worry about winning the argument, overwhelming the conversation with scintillating wit or being right. Charm is about matching and reflecting the other person. This creates a positive energy flow and people will inevitably accept your point of view.

Charm is an acquired trait. You can become a virtuoso by practicing a few concrete strategies until they are transformed into your own natural verbal and physical responses. Here is how to get what you want without grabbing, shouting or coercing. All you have to do is smile, look into the eyes of the other person without staring ( because staring suggests domination) and think, “You are the most compelling person in my world” and mean it!
