What is the attitude of charismatic people?
The attitude of charismatic people is positive thoughts.
A pessimist sees difficulty and problems in everything while an optimist sees chances and opportunities in every challenge.
But we have to know what optimism is and what do we mean by that when we talk about charismatic features.
Before we discuss this subject, let’s explain the meaning of positive thoughts and optimism.
It means the time we use all positive, joyous and hopeful capacity of our brain. By doing that negative and frustrating factors won’t consume us. These factors are made by our mind when we have difficulty communicating with others and confronting the nature.
Or a short version is:
Having hope to find solutions
Now what is the difference between an optimist and a pessimist? We can say negative people believe in terrible events and think that the bad situation is permanent.
For example, if a pessimist fails in his business, he says I wasn’t lucky from the beginning, or I can’t succeed in this country.
But if the same thing happens to optimists, they believe something went wrong in their work and they haven’t been successful yet because they still don’t have enough dominance and knowledge.
A pessimist lets grief and hopelessness come in his life, influence other parts and infect them.
For example, imagine someone is dismissed from his job temporarily. Not only a pessimist becomes worried, but also he conveys this terrible negative feeling to other aspects of his life. He expresses that his marriage is in japery and he can’t control his kids.
On the other hand, an optimist person doesn’t let failures to limit his life and he thinks: “so now I don’t have any job in this situation but I have my family, my wife, and children who are close to me and we are proud of them.”
How to look at this negative world full of difficulties positively?
The difference between charismatic people and ordinary people is that not only the normal people have a terrible effect on others but also others can have a negative impact on them.
I suggest you see this video and watch Larry Brilliant presentation in Ted.com which is about justifying the possibility of optimism. I hope you enjoy this realistic idea.
Are the charismatic people optimist?
Most of the charismatic, successful and wealthy people consider their success more than any other factor owing to their optimism and the right attitude.
If you don’t have an optimistic mind, how can you motivate and inspire others?
Imagine you are abroad or you take a trip. All of a sudden it starts raining. This rain can become a sad thing and ruin your travel, or it can make your journey the most memorable event. It depends on how you think.
Optimism tells you that problems are temporary while the pessimism considers them permanent and makes them look like there is no solution.
Others will be attracted to you if you think positive. Studies have shown that optimist people at work and school are more successful and live longer. But pessimists deal with depression and give up easily.
If you think positive you will make a mind frame for yourself that controls the way you look at the world.
When you think positive, it means you believe that everything is going to be alright (of course, if you try) and if you are an optimist, you can transfer this feeling to others and inspire them.
Being an optimist means you should think positive in every occasion and see the glass as half full. I have to inform you that there is a substantial difference between an optimist and a person who is dumb and doesn’t give a damn about anything. Optimist people focus on solutions and ways to go forward instead of negative factors and obstacles. People like to be close to these kinds of people.
Even Hitler had a positive mind!
Aside from the intentions, we might be a thief but have a positive mind!
So it must be interesting for you to know that Hitler, as a charismatic and effective person, had positive thoughts and beliefs in his speeches. He believed that his people’s wishes would come true and problems would be illuminated.
Now imagine he was a negative person and transferred the negative thought to his people …
Finally, you have to remember this:
If you are not an optimist, you can’t have a long-term effect on the others.
