So what's with charisma?
Is it like they say, either you have it or you don't?
The power of personality, your energy, your aura, your chemistry, your strength in connecting with others, your ability to influence people and to move them in thought and deed.
Truly, for some people, you would follow them into the battlefield or the boardroom.
And for others, you know they're no good and you'd probably just as soon do the opposite of what they say since you don't believe in them and what they stand for.
Today, I was expecting to see a special chabad Rabbi in Florida, but they were up in NY--I missed them having not seen them for many months.
I was disappointed, even though I really enjoyed the other people and the services that I attended.
Some people...there is a magic to them...a genuineness, a warmth, a centeredness, with certain integrity, and driven to something greater.
We need people like this in our life.
Of course, we have G-d, always.
But we also need other human beings that move us.
People with charisma often make awesome leaders.
It not about them remember, but rather about the mission they and we are on together.
And being a mensch to other people.
A real smile, a warm embrace, a kind word, a caring nature, a giving soul, a person with belief, someone who can inspire and motivate.
These people are rare, but when you find them, they are gems.
They are a blessing among us.
The last thing we need though is a false messiah, but rather the real McCoy to work with us to reach new heights of greatness, achievement, and happiness in life.
