About charisma

A wonderful talk by Olivia Fox Cabane on Charisma (Stanford Seminar)

She defines the Charisma equation as "Charisma = Presence + Power + Warmth"

A great talk on Power, Presence and Warmth and the role of self-confidence. However, what I find missing is the element of Trust. Charisma should also be linked to Trust. You have to come through as trustworthy.

"Charisma is not only how you make people feel about you, it is also how you make them feel about themselves" - Olivia Fox Cabane

Haja Fatmata Binta Bah - It's been 10 years since you left us

10 years ago, this day (7th April), I lost a very special woman in my life.
10 years later, I still feel the urge to connect with her.
Words cannot describe the emptiness.
There’s no substitute for a mother’s unconditional love.
Neneh, we miss you. May Allah continue to bless you, and may you continue to rest in peace.
