Charisma is the special quality that gives an individual influence or authority over large numbers of people. Comparing ‘swag‘ with charisma, which are similar in ways ‘swag’ is more of a confident walk or strut, rather than the ability to capture the attention of an audience through speaking. A person can have ‘swag’ but no charisma, as well as a person with charisma can have no ‘swag’ whatsoever.
I believe that some people are naturally born with charisma, as well as being able to learn it. A few of my favorite celebrities such as Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Jesse ‘The Body’ Ventura, The Nature Boy Ric Flair, and John Cena all have natural charisma, that has taken their careers to different levels beyond wrestling.
Having the ability to learn it can also come with having the knowledge of the subject presenting. Being able to speak with facts and truth can go ways also. Having charisma has its advantages. All one must possess is the confidence to present information, and it can go along way. Many with charisma tend to be more successful than someone without it, even not having knowledge of the information presenting.
Not having charisma has its disadvantages also. A few of the disadvantages of not having charisma is one can sound very boring and dry, and lose an audience, while presenting information. It can also cause one to be very skeptical with the individual presenting. One can possess the knowledge of the subject presenting, but not have charisma presenting.
Having charisma is a positive thing, if one has the knowledge to back up what they speak, however, if one doesn’t possess the knowledge to back up what they speak, they can be looked at as a fraud or manipulator, which is a bad thing. It can cause a lot of damage in the long the long run to a persons character. I do believe that having charisma is a important thing in this world. It sells! Especially if you’re involved in public speaking, politics, or any role that puts you in front of a audience.
