Ladies! We all know that ONE girl that when she walks into a room, she makes heads turn (and if you’re like me, YOU ARE THAT GIRL Lol). Well, have you ever wondered how she does it? Sure, her makeup is laid and her hair is slayed. Her ‘fit is bomb and her shoes are to die for…but what is it about her that commands the attention of every eye in the room? I’ll tell you what it is. It’s charisma. It’s character. It’s confidence. She has it. You have it. You just need to own it!
I believe each and every one of us are born with everything we need to make this journey called life happen. No matter how great or how small, those parts of you that make you who you are all work together towards getting you where you need to be and to pull those who need to experience you in your direction. Experience you…yes, I said it. Honey, everyone you have a conversation with needs to leave it feeling as if they’ve been taken on an encounter with a dope soul.
There are three attributes you need to send out those winning vibes to bring who you need into your space.
Charisma is the compelling attractiveness someone has. People are naturally drawn to them because their personality is contagious! Before people decide to love you, they have to like you. And if you desire to attract winning opportunities, you have to embrace the part of you that needs to connect with like-minded individuals to flourish. This is the attribute that will allow you to rise to the top and become the crème of the crop.
Who are you when no one is watching? (Please do tell!) That person is who you really are. Believe it or not, you can only stay in character but for so long before your role is exposed. The people you attract will possess the same characteristics you have, the good, the bad and surely the ugly. Be mindful of that.
There is something magical about a woman whose smile caresses her face as if someone perfectly painted it on and whose presence says “I am THAT girl!” I’m sure you’ve heard time and time again that “confidence is key,” well it’s true. Believing in who you are and what you have to offer is critical to your success as a person and as a professional. Confidence convinces (You’ll catch that one later) and those you desire to have on your squad need to have confidence in your character.
When you allow the essence of who you are to shine through forreal, all three Cs will naturally flow from you. Your tribe needs your 3Cs. So, discover your uniqueness and embrace it. Everybody cannot handle your light. Those who are for you will come. And those who aren’t, well, they just aren’t. No love lost but all love given.
