Charisma, Confidence & Leadership

Charisma, Confidence & Leadership

It’s not everyday that a man from Christchurch claims to have answered a riddle that has eluded definition for centuries. However, this is just what student Seb Parr is claiming with his newly released e-book entitled Charisma, Confidence & Leadership – how to become a human superpower. The electronic book intends to show readers exactly how to become charismatic, truly confident and natural leaders.

Parr claims his book can turn people’s lives around, and allow them to break free of the “cycle of insignificance” to become respected and powerful.

The 6,000 word e-book, which costs ten dollars and is distributed on CD via PDF format, was inspired after Parr read several popular self-improvement books. “They were full of either new-age ideas or manipulative, hypnosis mind tricks” he believed, “I wanted to write a no-nonsense book that doesn’t expect you to visualize yourself on a windswept cliff meditating or whatever – something that works for everyone because it’s normal”.

Parr claims that his book will improve the reader’s life overnight by combining knowledge of both external traits of charisma, confidence and leadership (such as body language) and internal beliefs.

“You can’t have one or the other” Parr says. “If you just have external charisma or confidence, you are fake, but also if you only have the internal characteristics, you still look fundamentally awkward”.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
