How To Be Charismatic: Video Analysis of 3 Legends

(Sorry for disappearing, I owe you some blog action!  I’ve been doing a lot of work on the bonuses for the buyers of the new book and wanted to share the love, so I created this little post for you.)

Question:  What is it about Bill Clinton that makes him so charming to everyone he meets?

How is it that Newt Gingrich, his political arch rival called him “one of the most charming effective people I’ve ever negotiated with”?  How is it that after meeting him for just a few seconds, Gillian Anderson (Scully on X-Files) said, “When I got home, I expected to have a message from him, and I didn’t. I bet women across America expect it too.”

Today, I’ll show you exactly how to be charismatic and how Clinton makes such a lasting impression.  And I mean “show” literally.  I’m not going to write about it.  I’m going to show you with a video breakdown of Clinton’s masterful eye contact.

The Advice You Want Vs. The Advice You Need

I am supposed to tell you it’s not your fault.

I’m supposed to tell you radical feminists, or the government, or your ex girlfriend, or your parents are the reason you haven’t gotten what you wanted.  I’m supposed to tell you you’re the victim of a huge scam.  Of a conspiracy.  Of evolution and your genes.

And you’re supposed to love me for letting you off the hook.  And then you’re supposed to buy whatever I’m selling.

But fuck that.  Because it’s not honest.  Of course it is your fault.  There is only one person whose fault it could be.

Bill Clinton’s Charisma – A Conversation With Clinton Aide John Corcoran

Today I talk with John Corcoran of Smart Business Revolution.  John has spent time with the man who I consider the second most charismatic man in the world.  I’ll leave my top pick for later.  That one is a bit of a controversial dark horse.  But my #2 (and many people’s #1) is a total gimme.

Bill Clinton.

If you haven’t heard about his legendary powers, check out the conversation John and I have below.

Charisma On Command: How To Turn It On At A Moment’s Notice

My mental faculties used to abandon me when I needed them most.

In high school, I’d be comfortable and funny hanging out with my friends, but as soon as a pretty girl entered the room, I’d go into Defcon 5.

My ribs and chest would tighten.  My mouth would lock shut.  My arms would secrete glue and stick to my sides.  The most I could muster was a shy smile before getting the heck out of the room.

How To Make An Unforgettable First Impression

Imagine, you’ve just met someone new . . .

Maybe a woman at a bar.  Maybe a senior VP at a networking event.

Conversation rolls for the first few minutes.  But then a familiar roadblock: you both feel like you’re running out of things to say.  So you implement a tactic you’ve heard before:

One Simple Habit To Crush Any Conversation: From CEOs To The Woman In The Bar

Today, we’re going to completely strike from the face of the earth an uncomfortable experience we’ve ALL had….

I’m good in the first few minutes of conversation, but how do I keep a conversation going and keep the other person really interested?  How do I stop it from stalling?  How do I deal with silences?

Have you been there?  Me too.  You’re having a conversation with someone and it’s going great.  Maybe it’s the CEO of the company you want a job at.  Maybe it’s the beautiful woman you’re talking to at the bar.  Suddenly conversation starts to stall and you’re thinking “what do I say next??”.

Entrepreneurs, Pro Athletes, and Aliens: My Roommates Are The Bomb

Today’s post will not be like most of my other articles.  Today, I wanted to write about my roommates.

Ben and I had to ask each of these guys to leave their lives behind and come with us to Rio.  We did it because they are some of the most amazing people I know.  And I love them to death.  So I wanted to take a moment to give them the introduction they each deserve.  And it’s my blog, so every once in a while I get to write about what I want ;-P

How To Be Happier: End These 4 Life-Sucking, Unconscious Pursuits

happy catEveryone wants to be happier. But no one thinks to ask how to be happier. We assume we know what we need to be doing.

After all we’ve seen the movies. We watch the Academy Awards. We’ve see the smiling faces of our almost certainly more fulfilled friends on Facebook.

But it’s all a trick. All the things we’ve been conditioned to think will finally teach us how to be happier are total bullshit. Take, for example . . .

Introvert vs Extrovert? The Lies We Tell Ourselves

I’ve heard the phrase “introvert vs extrovert” bandied around quite a bit lately.  I’m not a fan.

The supposed breakthrough is this: we have been classifying introverts all wrong.  Introverts AREN’T people who don’t like social interaction.  They may very well like social interaction.  But they draw their energy from their alone time.  They are drained by extended social interaction.  Vice versa for extroverts.  According to what I’ve read, this doesn’t change.  This is just who they are.  Introversion is not a choice, but an orientation.  And it is something to be proud of!

Not.  Buying.  It.  In fact, I think the diagnosis of introverts vs extroverts is actually harmful.
