Do you have a project you are passionate about? A goal you are trying to achieve? One of the most important things you can do to help your own cause is to consider the way you are presenting YOURSELF, not the project, to others. Your emotions are contagious!
The first power you can develop is enthusiasm. The more excited you are about accomplishing something that is important to you, the more excited others will be about helping you to do it. The fact is that emotions are contagious. The more passion you have for your life and your activities, the more charisma you will possess, and the more cooperation you will gain from others. Every great man or woman has been totally committed to a noble cause and, as a result, has attracted the support and encouragement of others in many cases, thousands or millions of others. How consistently passionate are you?
