In the world we live in now, new technologies come out constantly. These technologies help people become more efficient. But in the midst of these, there is a growing epidemic of loneliness. It’s a sad contrast: many people become more efficient on the outside but emptier on the inside.
Charisma is a powerful skill to have. All of the top leaders, businessmen, entrepreneurs, and celebrities have charisma. When people talk to them, they feel like they’ve known them all their life. It’s as if there is a magnetic attraction pulling them in. That’s the power of charisma.
Note: This post is written by Nicah Caramba Oh no. They’re inviting you to a group outing again. Gulp. “Uh…” You’re about to break a sweat from nervousness trying to come up with an excuse. “My parents are coming over this weekend. I’ll go next time.” But you never do.
A while back, there was a viral news story here in Indonesia: the father of a famous celebrity was found begging on the street. When the government’s social agency picked him up, he was in terrible condition. He didn’t have any belongings. He didn’t even have a single penny. And he apparently hadn’t taken a shower for days. This became viral because his daughter is a famous celebrity with lots and lots of money. How could this happen? As it turns out, the celebrity’s father and mother divorced years ago when she was just 7 years old. Since then, the father worked odd jobs until one day he could no longer find any more jobs. Not knowing what else to do, he became a beggar. And not being able to pay rent, he just slept wherever he could.
