4 Charisma Mindsets You Should Live By
But, don`t get me wrong, I`m not here to brag. I wasn`t always that confident, but I taught myself how to have charisma and appeal to people where they are – while still maintaining a decent level of self-esteem – and today I`m showing you some of what I know is essential to building charisma.

Mindset #2: I am lucky
You must believe that good things come to you because that`s how you attract them. All successful people —charismatic and not-charismatic— have a positive attitude towards life. This attitude is important because:
