How to Become More Charismatic?

A charismatic person is someone who attracts and inspires others by resonating an aura of charm and attractiveness. Charisma is a very beneficial personal characteristic to have, because it provides you with many opportunities and increases your influence upon others.
I am looking for (practical) ways and ideas to build and/or increase someone's charisma. Here are 4 key things I already know of:
  1. BE POSITIVE: It's important to be positive, confident and optimistic when around people and colleagues, because people are normally drawn to positivity.
  2. LISTEN: Make people feel special about themselves by really listening to what they have to say. This will give them the feeling you care for them.
  3. GIVE COMPLIMENTS: Offering other people genuine compliments will make them like you and be around you.
  4. BODY LANGUAGE: When you're meeting people, smile, stand up straight, and make eye contact to show that you're confident and engaged in the conversation.
Who can give some some further tips? Thank you.
