Why do some people light up a room instantly, while others shrink into the shadows? The answer is the “It factor.” The “It factor” is that inner, positive light that illuminates the darkness and dispels the negative. That vibrant sunshine of charisma resides within every individual soul – and it only waits to be revealed within you!

Author Leesa Rowland shares her own compelling journey and helps readers reveal their own inner light to the world in Discovering the It Factor within You: Developing Your Charismatic Personality. The inspirational memoir should serve as a go-to guidebook for anyone starting a personal journey or striving to be the best they can possibly be. The book incorporates Rowland’s secret methods – from spirituality and religious views to auras and chakras to mantras and more – to help each reader build their charismatic personality, discover their own bright light and excel in life.

This amazing book will teach you exactly how to develop a charismatic personality, and features different methods for different personalities. As a self-help junkie, I have to say that I’ve learned so much from this book, which was both an extremely informative and entertaining read. Interwoven throughout, Leesa shares her heartbreaking, yet ultimately victorious story of how she discovered her true self, developed her spiritual practice, and came to help others discover their own It Factor.

Whenever a person like Oprah or Bill Clinton enters a room, people are drawn to them like a magnet. Why? Were they born that way? Do they have "good genes"? Is it a case of "you either got it (charisma) or you don't"? Can charisma be learned by the rest of us? That's what this book is all about. There are several qualities that help make a person charismatic. Among them are: being open to change; developing good taste, whether in art, literature or clothing; staying humble; being approachable; improving eye contact and listening to others with your full attention (like there is no one else in the room at that moment). The first step to developing charisma is to take a long, hard look inside yourself. If you are the sort of person who makes racist or sexist remarks (even if you intend them as a joke), or yell at the neighborhood kids to get off your lawn, then you have some work to do. After that, keep a positive attitude, stand up straight, be flexible, be confident, treat people like they want to be treated, don't compare yourself to others, and realize that charisma comes from the inside, so don't worry if you aren't the most attractive person in the room. The author looks at the connections between spirituality and charisma, love and charisma and karma and charisma. Is it possible for animals to be charismatic? Can a person be charismatic at work? Concentrate on your body language (stand up straight). Look like a leader (dress appropriately for the message you want to convey). There is nothing wrong with dressing like a VP when your company's dress code is jeans and t-shirts. Influence people by really listening. Sometimes, what you don't say is more important than what you do say. Also, show that you have the ability to think outside the box. This is a gem of a book. It is full of tips to help people from all walks of life. Anyone who cannot find just one helpful idea in this book is in serious trouble. It is very much worth reading for everyone.

I want to preface my review by stating that I really did have a difficult time giving this book a "rating" per se. A 5 in my book is a book that I can't put down, that I loved to read, and that I think I will read again. A 4, is a book that I liked. I enjoyed it. It was really good, but I probably won't read it again, but would recommend to others. A 3, is something that was okay. I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it. I may or may not recommend it to others to read. It was just 'eh', as I like to say. I can say, it wasn't a 5. I may refer back to it, but I won't read it again, and I certainly didn't love it. I felt like a 4 would be somewhere in the ball park, but it wasn't what I classified as *really* good. However, I loved the point of the book. I would recommend it to others. Therefore, it was kind of a 4, but not quite a 3. Hence, 3.5. Here's why. The basis, the meat, the purpose of the story was great. The first few chapters I really enjoyed. Then it started sounding like a broken record. I felt it was very repetitive the entire book. The same things were being said over and over and over. They weren't said in different ways either. It was the same thing. The book felt incredibly long and it took quite the amount of time for me to finish it. I think it's because after the first few chapters, it became repetitive and much harder for my attention to remain on the book, the words, the pages. I must also admit that I felt there was a chapter, that in my own personal opinion, was unnecessary. Note, that is just MY personal opinion. Outside of those minor things, I really felt that the point of the book was excellent. I feel like I am almost to my own personal IT factor, but I definitely have areas to work on. Some parts of the book I would read and get excited to think that I have the IT factor and then I would read something and say to myself, "That is something I need to work on." I think my favorite part of the entire book was the chapter that shared examples of charismatic people in our world. Some of them I didn't know (maybe, 2?) and there were some that I didn't really consider charismatic (e.g. Bill Clinton, who I can openly admit I do not know much about.) Some of them were ones that I 100% agree as charismatic people with the IT Factor. I definitely recommend the book to others and thing it is a really good self-help and motivating book.
