Know the definition
Know what the X factor is -- that elusive star quality that's difficult to define because it's a little different in everyone who possesses it.
Be original. You don't get the X factor by copying other people's style.
Make others feel special
Make others feel special. People who have that "certain something" can usually make whomever they're talking with feel like a million bucks.
Speak quickly; people who do are rated more charismatic than those who speak slowly. And get rid of filler speech such as "ums" and "you knows"; it undermines the confidence you want to project.
Be fearless. People with the X factor are not afraid to take risks -- or to fail.
Pursue your goals. Because who's going to know you have the X factor if you don't put it out there?
