Before we talk about how you can develop your charisma, let’s take a look at the benefits of being charismatic.
Benefits Of Being Charismatic

- Become Better Listeners - As you develop your charisma, you should begin to understand how important it is to actually listen to others. This can have huge benefits for your social life and work life.
- Feel More Positive - With charisma comes positivity. You should start to possess positive energy, in yourself and your potential. You start to understand that being positive is key to finding people who support you and give back the same energy.
- Inspire Others - Charismatic people tend to inspire others through their passion and action. Once you develop your charisma, you should start to inspire others and have people that look up to you and get motivated to try and better themselves too.

How To Develop Your Charisma
There are many changes that you can make that will help you to develop your charisma. Some are small and simple changes while others may take some time to develop - however, all of these tips can be started today.
Here are 6 ways to develop your charisma.
1. Adopt A Positive Mindset
An important part of developing your charisma is believing in yourself. We often have an inner critic telling us we aren’t good enough or just being negative in general, but if you can learn to replace this voice with a more positive one - it can really help you to develop your charisma, and, not to mention your overall wellbeing.
To help you adopt a more positive mindset, try and keep a gratitude journal and write a list each day of things you are grateful for in your life. This can help you to feel more positive and thankful for the little things.
Having a positive mindset can also help you with own mental wellbeing and this positive energy can help more people to be drawn to you.
2. Listen To Others
When colleagues or friends come to you for advice - try to actually listen. It can sometimes be all too easy to bring the conversation back to you or not truly understand what the other person is trying to say to you.
Try to listen to others with intent and understand what they are asking - this way you can give back good advice and gain trust in others. This makes other people feel more valued and important, which means they are more likely to confide in you and feel positive knowing that you respect them and their feelings.
This can be especially good in the workplace, where you need others to trust and confide in you, in order to keep a happy work environment.
3. Dress For Success
It may seem a little shallow, but how you dress can be important to both how others perceive you and how confident you feel. How we dress can have a lasting impression on what other people think about us. If you had a job interview, would you go in ripped jeans and an old t-shirt? Probably not.
When you put little to no effort into your appearance, it can sometimes send the wrong message (that you are not bothered with how you look or the impression you give). This can be especially bad if you are doing this in a work environment.
Make sure you dress smart and how you feel most comfortable. This can then help you to feel more confident in yourself and the impression you are giving to others.
4. Show Passion When You Talk
If you feel passionate about something - show it! Have you ever just felt drawn and inspired by someone who is telling a story or talking about their work, and doing it with passion? Well, you can develop this skill too.
Start to talk about more things that you have a passion for - you can even practice with family and friends first. Doing this can also help you to improve your speaking skills (especially when it comes to work).
Showing passion in your voice can also help you in your social life. People should feel drawn to you and motivated to have the same amount of passion as you do. This skill is not to be missed, as it can even help you with becoming a great leader too.
5. Try Self-Hypnosis
One of the most common problems we have, that can stop us from developing our charisma is our own limiting and negative beliefs. If we listen to these beliefs, we can even stop ourselves from progressing and just give up altogether.
This is why it’s important to do everything you can to replace your negative and limiting beliefs with positive ones - this is where self-hypnosis comes in. Self-hypnosis can help you do just that. Listening to tracks like ‘Develop You Charisma’ can keep you relaxed and help you to recognize your negative perceptions and replace them with positive ones.

6. Be Present
Instead of worrying about the past or the future, try to start being more present and living in the moment. When you are present, it shows people that you are in control and aware of what’s happening around you.
You should also try to be present when you are listening to others, otherwise, you can come across as distant and that you are not interested in what they have to say. If someone is talking to you, or presenting a meeting, and all you can think about are the worries of the future or your past - they will know you aren’t truly present.
Charismatic people tend to focus on the now and what’s going on in front of them, this is why being more present is a great way to develop your charisma.
