I talk way too much about Dancing with the Stars on a blog that has nothing to do with dancing, but I can’t help myself.
One of the things that breaks my heart with this show is that amazing dancers get sent home and lousy dancers (who I’m sick of watching) stay and the reason this often happens comes down to one thing: personality.
If viewers love you, they’ll vote for you even if you look like a blind donkey during your rhumba.
And, it’s not just personality…it’s charisma.
If you want to win the mirrorball (the trophy you get if you win Dancing with the Stars), you better have lots of charisma.
I’m assuming you aren’t trying out for Dancing with the Stars next year, but you probably are thinking about doing a Facebook Live or a webinar or setting up a sales funnel or recording a video for your next launch. You’ll be a lot more successful with all of these things if you’re more charismatic.
The good news is that charisma can be taught. Look at the earliest videos of Steve Jobs–his first presentations–and then look at his last presentations. They’re quite different. You can see that Steve Jobs did a lot of work on improving his charisma.
Because this is such a big topic, I knew I couldn’t do much with a 5-minute video, so I put together a mini-class for you.
Enjoy this free 30-minute video that contains 10 ways to increase your charisma today:
In the video, this is the blog post I recommended you read about visualization.
P.S. I’m hosting an in-person retreat this upcoming spring. It’s going to be a small retreat (only 5-10 spots) and I’m going to open up the spots to the women in Sunday Society first. I assume all of the spots will be taken from the women in Sunday Society but if they aren’t, I’ll open them up to everyone on the Blacksburg Belle email list. If you’d like the chance to grab up one of the spots, make sure you’re in Sunday Society!
