Listen to episode 200 of the Inspirational Living podcast: How to Build Personal Magnetism | Magnetic Charisma. Adapted Stepping-Stones to Success by Horace D. Hitchcock.
Self-Development Podcast Excerpt: Henry Ward Beecher once said: "There are persons so radiant, so genial, so kind, so pleasure bearing, that you instinctively feel in their presence that they do you good; whose coming into a room is like the bringing of a lamp there."
That is personal magnetism. It is that quality of personality which attracts, causes admiration in others, and is a compelling force to success and good living. A person may be beautiful and brilliant mentally, but if they lack "personal magnetism" they are dull and uninteresting to those with whom they come in contact.
Personal magnetism is the magic flame that lights up the inner soul. It is that wonderful charm which, when properly cultivated and used, is a priceless treasure.
It is true that all things of influence can be made to produce good or evil. The conventional terms "good influence" and "bad influence" pertain directly to the qualities of magnetic personality. This quality is inherent in all of us, yet very few people know of its possibilities or that it can be developed like any other quality of mind.
Once again we are reminded of that great principle: Like produces like. Good influence produces good influence and, inversely, bad influence produces a negative quality.
