What makes people charismatic? You think you don’t have what it takes to become charismatic? Listen to what I have to say.

Let’s take the 20–0 heavyweight champ, Anthony Joshua for example.

  1. We could agree his number one trait is humility. This is apparent from his TV appearances, post-match interviews and real life. Fans just love his approachable public figure.

And he walks the talk. Even though he is a millionaire, and has a huge fan base on social media, up until recently he had still shared a house with his mother.

  1. Using that big smile of his has built up his reputation of being incredibly positive. Smiling, cracking jokes has rewarded him with being a star-guest on the most popular TV-shows, a front face for a major sport-clothing company and so much more.

The moral of the story: use that nice smile of yours!

  1. Fame and money corrupt—typically. But not in AJ’s case. He likes to keep it simple, down to earth. Real. “He hasn’t changed much in all these years of glory,” his friends attest to that. Be it on the big-screen or in real life—what you see is what you get.

To sum up: to stir up your inner charisma you need to do three things:

  • Be humble.
  • Stay positive.
  • Keep it real.
