I watched Miss America over the weekend. All pretty and smart girls from all over America, competing for the title.
Most girls respond to questions thoughtfully, but I believe people want more than just the safe answers. Inspiring people aren’t usually the safest ones, but having decided that their belief is more important than their fear of looking stupid on television.
Safe answers are boring, they’re just a click away. The braves, they don’t necessarily overcome fear, but are authentic, passionate, courageous, and sometimes even introvert.
Brave people aren’t always charismatic, but they do it anyway.
That “doing” is what gives brave people charisma.
